Does not write DL DVD+R

Boddu S., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Summary: Usually DVD-R has more problems, and I am using Sony DVD+R, which I never had problems with. They also worked well with a portable ASUS bluray writer.
  • Pros: Cheaper than the other options, might work well for other types of media.
  • Cons: imgburn could not start the write process with this drive, even at 1x speed, suggesting there was a problem with the media. I tried the same media with a LITEON drive and using imgburn again, and it worked right away.

Great but comes with vastly outdated software

Mike W., Newegg
16 January 2012
  • Summary: For those who don't know this already, Windows 7 does not support Blu-Ray playback by default -- you need to either use the outdated bundled software, or buy new software to play or burn Blu-Rays. If you have a newer copy of PowerDVD (i.e.
  • Pros: Love that this unit doesn't require an external power source. For any computer with two adjacent USB ports, this unit is perfect.
  • Cons: Unfortunately Samsung bundled this fairly new Blu-Ray burner with a sadly outdated copy of Cyberlink PowerDVD. This product began shipping Sept. 2011, but PowerDVD 9 was released 2 1/2 years prior in March 2009. In fact, PowerDVD 10 was released in March 2010 -- plenty of time for Samsung to have...

Marius, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Der Player an sich funktioniert, und hat bisher auch so ziemlich alles gelesen, ABER es gibt massive Probleme mit der Software.

Mauvaise surprise

Catherine Millot, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: Rien que pour pouvoir lire un simple disque Blu-Ray, ai dû dépenser un supplément de 30 euros pour l'achat d'un logiciel qui au final s'avère ne pas être compatible avec les téléviseurs à écran plasma Philips de dernière génération. Suis très déçue par le produit. Ai dépensé 150 euros pour rien !

  • Summary: Das Laufwerk funktioniert im Prinzip, leider lässt sich meine originale Blu-ray nicht damit abspielen. Habe mir daher eine neue Software besorgt. Von Samsung hätte ich mir mehr erwartet! Fazit: Kauf überlegen
