  • newegg Experience True Entertainment True 1080p Full HD technology is more than just entertainment, it’s an experience.

  • newegg Impressive 3D experience 3D in Full HD is now a reality. With vivid new dimensions in picture depth and crystal-clear images that leap out of your screen, you will be fully immersed in your favorite movies. PowerDVD with support for Blu-ray 3D delivers this in an all new viewing experience. Broad 3D support: PowerDVD delivers Blu-ray 3D to any compatible 3D displays and supports all 3D video file formats.
  • newegg More Room for More Movies The BD disc can really pack it in. When it comes to capacity, BD discs truly outsize – and outclass – DVDs and CDs. In fact, with a single layer capacity of 25GB and a double layer capacity of 50GB, you’re talking almost five times as much room as a DVD and 70 times as much room as a CD. Ready for a quadruple feature? Because that translates into 135 minutes of High Definition movie time and nine hours of standard definition movie time.
  • newegg Enjoy the AV Connectivity AV devices such as TVs are available for multimedia files on your disc by connecting Samsung's external ODD via a USB cable. Just give it two light touches with the tray open and the drive goes into AV connectivity mode. It lets you enjoy a variety of content including music, pictures, and video. From now on, Samsung external ODD is not just for storage - it's for all your favorite multimedia.
  • newegg Portability Up. Noise Down. Battery running time is one of the biggest hurdles for laptop portability. SE-506CB’s low power consumption provides longer working time than other external DVD drives. Even one USB port from a Tablet PC gives sufficient power to use the SE-506CB.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Overall a great value. This was much cheaper and easier to use than an internal drive.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Thin, light weight and portable, and you don't feel like it is going to break sitting in your backpack. Uses the micro B usb connection so if you lose the cord you don't have to pay a premium for a proprietary cord.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Have to update the firmware on arrival. Remember that W7 & 8 do not natively support BR. The package comes with PowerDVD, which works, but I don't like it. There are other options out there, but I don't like them much either. I can archive a BR in about an hour.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: Great out of the box. I'm using Rosewill BD Discs, with no "coasters" thus far. Windows 7 easy, with NERO 2014 to write BD Data Discs.

Very quiet while operating. Auto-ejects on it's own. Be careful with inserting and removing disc. Seems fragile to the touch?

Cons: You must install TSST software, which comes with burner, and download firmware. You should do that before the first burn. You'll need to reboot several times with each firmware update.

I'm using Nero 2014. If I want to view or burn movies, I must upgrade to Nero Platinum, $$$. I suspect the same holds true with Cyberlink POWERDVD (inserted in box), in order to view and burn Blu-Ray movies.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would recommend this product. Shame on Samsung for not obtaining licencing to have this model COMPLETELY burn- ready upon box opening with NERO, Cyberlink, and other software brands.
