Great movie saver


Works just like it is supposed to. For only a couple dollars more you get to watch those Blu-ray movies you grabbed by accident from the video store

none yet

A working Blu Ray drive for $50


Consumer review by:

Totally not as represented


no idea - haven't installed it

As other poster mentioned (too bad I didn't read it before ordering as this was promoted in a new egg daily deal email) The overview states: "Take entertainment to the next level with 3D using the new Power BD-DVD 3D Software bundle" which DOES NOT...

Blu-Ray! on your PC! What!?


The only reason I gave it 4/5 instead of 5/5 is the lack of Blu-Ray playing capability out of the box. I understand it is OEM, but you would think it would have built it codecs for Blu-Ray video/audio.

1.) Blu-Ray on your PC ; 2.) fast read speeds for DVD as well ; 3.) Burning speeds are on par with dedicated DVD Burners

1.) OEM part (no software or Blu-Ray codecs)

Not so Hot


Gave this 5 egg's for Newegg's service on this item. The actual HDWR only deserves 1 egg.

Fast! Would Burn faster than anything

Within 2 weeks of utilization it became history. Newegg is replacing

Great deal!


The price, hands down, is unbeatable for the quality of the player

Absolutely none

Nice Drive


I have bought several LG Blu-Ray drives--both readers and writers. They are solid, fast, and quiet. If you have the LG Multi-Blu Ray disc from another retail LG drive, you can use that with this drive. Otherwise, you will need to find a source for...

Attractive face plate ; Good read / write speeds

OEM Drive - does not include software

Consumer review by:

...nothin' but net


It worked with two Bluray movie discs I tested it with. It worked with several DVD/CD application install discs I used it with. It worked to burn a DVD from an ISO image I used it with. It works. If you're not going to purchase Bluray software from a...

Price. Looks. Works

None ; But ; I am very familiar with the software/driver issues for OEM and brown box purchases ; And I'd rather save money (especially in this case) by buying a bare drive ; So: *no* cons

Consumer review by:

DOA burned one dvd with it then it starting making horrible sound like a box of rocks.


I am upset with newegg because I have been a customer since 2002 and spend thousands of dollars with them and they did not compensate me with even a gift card for my trouble. It took over two weeks to get the drive delivered because they were on...

Both blu ray reader as wall as DVD/CDR writer (Combo Drive) ; faster than my old 4x blu ray reader that died after two years

I did not even get to play one blue ray Disc as the drive died before I could try it out ; You have to have separate software such as Power DVD to play blue ray movies. This can be expensive to keep updated as they charge you for new versions that are...

Great blu-ray drive on the cheap


This is the third one I've bought, but the first from newegg. Wish I would have looked for it here first, I would have saved some bucks! This drive is in two home theater systems and gets a work out, it's used several times a night almost every night....

Cheaper than any other blu-ray drive on newegg, works great, quiet, tough. It also burns M-Disc discs, a really nice permanent way to store your files

None, nada, zip
