Fast, reliable, & for the most part quiet on idle.
I might make a few heads scratch by having two optical drives, but I wanted it like that as more of a nod to other computers I had. I wanted a Blu-ray drive to burn Blu-ray discs and to play Blu-ray movies on my computer as in the deep future, I may use this rig as a glorified home entertainment PC hooked up to a TV set.
OEM drive comes with nothing, so need to pick up SATA separate. But works great! Also needs compatible software to play blu-rays.
Best price for BR writer. Worth it , probably not since BR sucks when it comes to writing and you have to have a freaking $90 software to have any luck, still not LGs fault and DVD/CD RW is as you would expect with fastest RW speeds to date.
If you like to watch blu-ray or need to do data backup this drive will be amazing. The write and read speed of blu-ray is only 2x but for CDs and DVDs it is blazing fast.
This is actually the Blu-Ray drive from my "Shell Shock" build. I was not using it at all and my brother has a big Blu-Ray collection so I just sold it to him. He loves it already.
Came as OEM, no software or cables, but wasn't expensive at all. Reviews looked decent and wasn't much more than a DVD-RW. Note that as of this writing, I've not testing BD read/write yet, but it's fine for DVD stuff.
Solid Blu-Ray drive. Does everything as advertised. No problems.
It's an optical drive, it works, it writes and reads and makes loud zinggggg noises.
There is hardly ever a quiet optical drive, but this one isn't too bad. I personally try to avoid optical drives as they are hardly ever used. But overall this is a good price for a decent Blu-Ray drive. Its front fascia is also really nice.
