Nice cheap way to add a blue ray to a pc

Michael A. Parks, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: This drive is affordable and easy to install. seemed to work well, but I did have an issue with a blu ray from redbox that had a small scratch but deep and the drive wouldn't read past that point in the movie. I traded in the disc for a new one and it was ok. It seems quieter than my old Sony DVD burner. I have not burned anything yet but I'm sure it works fine. just remember that this drive only reads Blu-ray discs but reads and burns dvd and cd.

  • Summary: I ordered this seeing it as an upgrade to previous optical drives seeing the reviews. 3 months later i am having issues i would have expected if i was using this everyday on a heavy workload, but this thing is as dead can be. It still somewhat reads, but will refuse to playback any kind of video. The audio oddly works. Next time i will order from a different supplier that also packages blu-ray support as well.

Works just fine, fast and reliable

  • Summary: Works just fine, fast and reliable. Keep in mind that there are no cables or screws included--only the drive itself. Also note that Blu-Ray drives (like this one) are typically deeper than most DVD drives.

Excellent Bluray ROM

Kirk Steinklauber, Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this BD ROM to see Bluray movies on my desktop. Works like a charm BUT be aware that: - You need the proper software to play Bluray files - You need a Video card that supports also Bluray resolution and codecs - Your monitor should support HDCP. Consider that this is to read files, you cannot burn Bluray discs! If you're looking for read only like me, this is a good one.

  • Summary: Seems to work and work very well. Would have liked for it to have come with connectors, but was aware of it before we bought it, as we read the reviews ahead of time.

Works great with Linux

B. Mayes, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: Using this in an Ubuntu Linux system and it works great now that I have all of the appropriate libraries installed. My kids tend to destroy all of their discs so I need electronic copies. I am in the process of ripping both DVD and Blu-ray movies to use with my Plex server using MakeMKV and/or Handbrake.

Great drive so far

Josh, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: Great drive so far. I was able to backup my entire collection of DVD's and Blu-ray's to an external HDD so I don't have to insert a disk (and risk scratching it) every time I want to watch a movie.

Works Great

Zombilina, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Ordered straight from amazon. Didn't come in a box, was just wrapped in a plastic bag along with the instructions and product manual. Might be because I ordered it alongside another item? Also didn't come with any cords or connectors so make sure you have those. Otherwise, works great. A for software to use with this thing, VLC media player is FREE and amazing to play movies with, I especially love it because of the volume equalizer.
