Bought this Blu-Ray optical drive a good while ago, love this thing for burning CD's, DVD's and occasionally Blu-Ray's.

Call me old fashioned, but i do like having the option to burn a disk if needed.

This is a cheap but effective BD reader. Normally I wouldn’t have anything special to say about an optical drive. However, this one is very quiet. The only time I’ve heard it making a significant amount of noise is when burning a standard audio CD at its fastest speed.

I paid too much for this and don't use it enough but damn i just can't let it go.

Got this drive because it was cheap for a Blu Ray drive. I bought it for driver installs, Blu Ray movies, and games based off of CDs (I own a few). It works good, and reads quick enough. It also blends well with my case.

Not fashionable anymore but I like it and when paired with the Vantec NexStar adapter, it works as an external drive.

It plays blu-rays and DVD's... Don't know what else to say about it except I kind of wish I would of gotten one that was a little faster with reading.

Pretty good optical drive. Plays everything nice, and does things quickly. My only problem with it is that sometimes when it is idle it makes strange noises, even when there is no disk. Also remember this drive doesnt come with blu-ray reading software so be prepared to buy some if thats what you got this for.

Its a great drive and has been doing well so far. But I think with any drive like this you will need some codecs to get all its features going... anyone have any suggestions and help on this would be much appreciated
