Great drive

Phillip M., Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Pros: Worked great right out of the box. I am running Windows 7 32 bit on my laptop and did not need to load any additional drivers. I used this drive with my 17 inch widescreen laptop to watch HD movies in th car on a trip to Florida. Sure beat the old 10 inch DVD player! All in all a super buy. I wou...
  • Cons: The only knock on this item is the USB cord is real short. I just used the cable from my Garmin and it worked for me.

PLEXTOR Black USB External Blu-ray Drive PX-B120U

Anonymous, Newegg
28 April 2011
  • Summary: I researched replacing the laptop's optical drive with a Blu-ray drive, but the price of an internal optical drive was about 5x the cost of this drive. This drive meets my needs at a much better price-point.
  • Pros: The PX-B120U is compact, stylish, and seems to fit nicely in our TV room. As it is powered by the USB connection, the only cord is the USB cable. I have the PX-B120U connected to a laptop with an HDMI connection to a 50" plasma flat screen TV and used the included Cyberlink PowerDVD application t...
  • Cons: On occasion, the drive makes light grinding noise as the drive starts to read a disc. While this noise was initially alarming, it seemed to diminish over time and the drive suffered no ill effect. Despite this noise, I have no regrets over this purchase.

Great buy for laptops w/o built-in

Robert L., Newegg
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I did not use the software that came with it because I had previously bought Power DVD 9 Ultra before and I had no need for the basic version this drive came with. When I got stuck in an airport, I popped out a blu-ray and watched a full 1080P movie in the airport while I waited.
  • Pros: This drive works great for blu-rays. Decent on read speed. Price was great for the applications that you can use this drive for. Powered by USB only. A great sell for those of us who travel. I travelled with this thing and it did great! It is light-weight compared to a 5.25" external hard drive.
  • Cons: Flimsy design. The case feels like you're going to break it if any pressure gets on top of it. If you're travelling, you have to travel with your blu-rays too (which isn't necessarily a con, but it takes up a lot of space). **** Lost BLU-RAY Region information and wouldn't allow me to play blu-ra...
