3 out of 5 eggsCould be better

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer Model SE-506CB/RSBD

Pros: - Slim design that's portable

Cons: - I had to update the firmware for this to even work. It gave my brand new Windows 10 environment the BSOD and wasn't able to play back any discs. Once you update the firmware it will work fine.

- The glossy black plastic asks for a ton of fingerprints

- Read-rate is pretty slow, don't try and transfer/burn Blu-Rays using this; it's best for playback

- Overpriced

Other Thoughts: In my opinion (with all the cons considered) this is worth $50. I paid $70 and shortly after I bought it, the price went up to $90. Yes, it plays Blu-Rays once you update the firmware, yes it's portable but make sure you get it for the right price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Blu-ray Burner

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer Model SE-506CB/RSBD

Pros: Discs are reliable.
If you are having issues, burn BDs at 2x. Esp. on laptop using USB2.

Cons: Not a barn burner, but... see below.

Other Thoughts: If you are having problems burning Blu-rays with this device, here is how I solved my problems burning on my laptop, i5, 8GB.
I put a SSD in the place of a regular hard drive.
I can now burn at 6x with Blu-ray usb3.
Just burned a BD-R DL at 6x with no issues.
Software is Cyberlink Media Suite 13 on Win8.1

5 out of 5 eggsDoes 3D BD too!

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer Model SE-506CB/RSBD

Pros: I bought this drive on sale.
Needed an external drive because my computer tower is in another room (acoustics) and I run wires through the wall. I burn discs, play movies and install software with this. It's quite versatile and burns data and home movie discs on blu-ray. I'm very happy with it.

I was pleased to find out that it also supports 3D blu-ray movie discs (for owners with nVidia 3D vision hardware). I've encountered a few instances where the USB 2.0 line was saturated and couldn't load some 3D movies. I simply tried a different cable (perhaps it had a better build quality?) and the problem was resolved.

I would buy this again.

Cons: USB 2.0 does the job, but it seems that 3.0 would make this perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer Model SE-506CB/RSBD

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

Cons: Little slow sometimes because it is connected by usb, I knew that when I purchased though.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer Model SE-506CB/RSBD

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.
USB 2
