Reviews

from completed build Valentine Punk

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

from completed build Bertha And Perkins

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.

from completed build Home Media Server

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.

Works as expected.

from completed build HTPC/Couch Gamer

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.

from completed build NX-01

Runs quite and fast. No user manuals at all just drive. but that's the deal I got. Windows found the drivers no problem.

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.
