Great drive.
Reviewed by zx50. Review Posted 30/05/2014

Ignore the review above by me. After finally finding the software that had a key for the software player for my Blu-Ray drive (it looks just like a documentation disc when in the packet), it works very well. The drive itself works great as well. No complaints after getting the software installed. Drive and software are great.

  • Value for money 5*
 
Good drive, but bundled software player needed key.
Reviewed by zx50. Review Posted 29/05/2014

This Blu-Ray drive is great, but really not happy about the fact that the bundled software player that came with it needed a key that wasn't provided. It's like selling someone a TV and then the buyer having to pay again for a remote from another company. This is ridiculous. I bought a Blu-Ray drive and yet I don't even get a key for the software player that comes with it. Absolutely stupidly ridiculous. I can't understand why it came with PowerDVD 7, which according to the front of the disc, is from 2007. Great drive, but the software that came with it was an absolute joke because of there being no key provided.

This drive has trouble reading some DVDs after so many months.
Reviewed by zx50. Review Posted 09/08/2015

Okay, it's now been about 16 months since I bought this drive and to be honest, I wish I'd gotten another one. It's recently started not recognising some DVD discs (yet they were perfectly readable in my Acer laptop), and having trouble recognising others, but being able to when the tray has gone in a second time...or a third time. It was a great drive in the beginning, but then started to become a nuisance this year. Not impressed.
