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
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.

Pros: Easy installation. Compatible with every PC I have used it on. Reasonably fast.
Cons: Doesn't do BluRay but not a biggie for me.
Other Thoughts: With most new laptops coming without optical drives, I keep this in my toolkit so I always have a way to boot to a CD/DVD. Also great for burning ISOs when the computer I am working on only has a reader.

Other Thoughts: If you put this on the edge of your desk and you open it, it will flip off your desk. Now you know, so don't do that (also don't do like the wife and put it away somewhere safe--it blends with its surroundings).
