    from completed build The Ultimate Office build for Mom

    She wanted a CD-Drive. Found this on a Newegg flash sale. Boom.

    Bought it on a deep sale and works as intended. Finding an application to play BR movies for free is the biggest pain about it though.

    Probably could have gone without a blu-ray drive but as near 40 year old I have a ton of physical media & I still prefer to buy physical copies of music, games and movies when I can. The drive itself is great. It's fast, like really fast ripping media & quiet. Can't ask for more than that.

    Works fine, but no software. I knew that, I just didn't know how much of a pain it was to get a PC BR player working. I think I use Leawo.

    Great Blu-Ray player, not so great at reading DVDs.

    It'll do just fine playing a DVD to watch video, but if you are trying to rip DVDs or data, it only reads at 12x speed - my 10 year old HP reads at 48x. I was pretty disappointed. Otherwise, this is a good drive for all other purposes.

    from completed build My First Gaming PC Build

    Meh. Not sure if it works anymore, but while it definitely did, did it work! It's also $69, what more do you need?

    Does what it says on the tin, fair warning you need paid software to actually play a Blu-Ray disc, the codec isn't free like DVD and CD.
