3 out of 5 eggsBuy it for the drive, not the Blu-Ray player

Pros: Reasonably priced and effective Blu-Ray device. Reads/writes DVD/ROM reliably. SATA connection.

Cons: 1. CyberLink, CyberLink, CyberLink!

Other Thoughts: As others have the CyberLink player is basically a scam. You install it, it works initially, then you are required to download a huge "patch" and the player doesn't work. If you buy this for Blu-Ray playback, plan on shelling out for a real Blu-Ray player. If not for CyberLink I would give it one rating higher.

2 out of 5 eggsSoftware problem

Pros: Burner works fine

Cons: Cyperlink software. Maybe it has "VistaItis" but you install, insert a blu-ray to play, it has to download a "critical update". Thereafter it plays a disk, and it plays fine on my system.

But try and play another, and you get another "critical" update needed, or it says disc is unsupported format; even the same disk! Then it directs you to a Cyperlink website that takes your phone number, and promises to "call you"; three days no call.

In FAQ at Cyperlink (you can't call them unless you pay $29.99 for the privilege) indicates that to solve this problem, just press the "Upgrade". That takes you to their web site, where the "upgrade" is you shelling out $89.00 for their 8.0 Power DVD(the blu ray player) version.

Pardon me they knock off 5%; generous of them ain't it.

I'm no mental giant, but I can see a scam when it smacks me in the face. Note if you delete the program, it will play another disc, but the circus starts again

Other Thoughts: May return drive because I don't like to be scammed. But may try to find other player. But beware of Cyperlink!!

5 out of 5 eggsEverything Is Beautiful

Pros: It's Lite-On, It's Fast, & It Will Read Anything. Installed in new build with striker 2 formula, 4 gigs Hyper-X 1066, EVGA 9800GX2, Q9450, Raptor-X main drive, & X-Fi Platinum, Ultra X3 800W.

Cons: not a single one.

Other Thoughts: I use a Sceptre 22" monitor on a DVI-D link. I just popped my first blu-ray in it(untraceable) and I have never seen quality like this. If you can afford it, get it. And when the prices come down I think everyone should get it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Blu-Ray Writer

Pros: It's easy to install. It worked as expected. Comes with Cyberlink's PowerDVD software.

Cons: Will not work if you don't have a HDCP compatible video card and monitor.

Other Thoughts: I was able to overcome the HDCP problem by purchasing AnyDVD HD.

5 out of 5 eggsLET ME CLEAR IT UP

Pros: This is a great drive. I have had it for about a month. You can never go wrong with Lite-ON

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: To you guys arguing about HDCP let me clear it up for you. HDCP only comes into play when using a digital connection such as HDMI or DVI. If you are using a computer monitor with a VGA connection which is analog then you need neither a HDCP video card nor monitor. The same goes for component output as it is analog as well. There is a provision to downsample the resolution called ICT for analog but no studio is currently using it.

5 out of 5 eggsuhm, roog, you're wrong

Pros: Will purchase within the next week

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: ok to clear things up:
roog stated that HDCP was just another gimmick, and that the only thing that was needed was a monitor supporting the 720p resolution. This is incorrect, as HDCP has to do with Content Protection, not resolution. If your video card and monitor are not HDCP (High Definition Content Protection) certified, then the Blu-ray Disc will not play on your computer. You can have a 30" monitor, doesn't make a difference, without HDCP the disc will not play. Think of it as a cd key, without it your program will not be usable on your computer.

4 out of 5 eggsHDCP monitor not needed

Pros: Does what it says.

Cons: maybe a bit slow and pricy

Other Thoughts: Yes you do need a video card that is HDCP ready to take full advantage of BluRay or HD-DVD, but as long as your monitor can support 1280x720 and up you don't have to worry about your monitor. HDMI is just another way to package digital signals, thats why it can be converted to DVI and back so easily. HDCP ready monitors are just another gimmick to get people to pay more money. As long as your monitor can output the resolution, you'll be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsHurray Blu-ray!

Pros: Burns near everything. Plays Blu-ray movies on my pc. SATA connection. Burns Blu-ray much faster then I expected. Power DVD blu-ray eddition was included with my drive and works great :).

Cons: Blu-ray media is still expensive.
Very few software Blu-ray players out right now.

Other Thoughts: If you want to play Blu-ray movies many will work without change, but many will not without the use of a bypass like AnyDvd HD.
