Installed the unit no problem. I did need to move my existing DVD unit to a lower bay as this unit is about an inch longer and my power cable config worked better that way. Once power was back on my Vista machine detected and installed drivers no problem. The Power DVD BD edition software installed no problem, however I did need to update the driver on my graphics card (Palit NVIDIA Ge Force 9600GT) in order to watch Blu Ray discs.

The spec on this unit is fantastic. It will burn Dual Layer DVD and Dual Layer Blu Ray, giving you a potential 50gb burning capacity. It is also fast, backed up a commercial Blu Ray film in about 30 mins using a Quad Core processor.

Overall very happy.

Delivered quickly, installed without trouble, and worked as soon as the PC was switched back on. What more could you ask for?

I never really thought I'd see a BD writer that can write 8x so soon, I was expecting this in a few years time, like with DVD, it seem to take a year or two to come along, but LG Electronics have done it, and it's a pretty good drive.

The form is 5.25 inches - and not too long so it'll fit in your bay with ease. This works well in the Shuttle XPC I have at home for my multimedia needs. Just screw it in the four holes with the screws provided, and SATA/Power it up and off you go, simple as that to install. I found it simple to fit in the bay. You also get a SATA cable, but it's about a meter long, and a power cable converter.

In Windows you will see it as a BD-RE drive rather than RW, this is normal as rewritables in Blu-Ray talk is RE. The Cyberlink software is good, though I have yet to write a BD disk, mainly because of the expense of the disks and because I have nothing to write on them. The DVD writing software is simple and just like Nero in many ways.

Performance wise I found this good, Blu-Ray disks look good in Cyberlink's PowerDVD 8 and writing a DVD took 5 minutes and 30 seconds, which is about standard at 16x on Verbatim disks. I have yet to test CD-Rs and any RW media, but when I do I will let you know.

This is an excellent drive which will fit in shuttle media centres as well as the big desktop machines, highly recommended - hopefully this one will last me for a long time.

Installed OK but drive got stuck first time it was ejected and wouldn't go back in!! Returns process flawless with Amazon though so no problems there. Does not work with Mac Pro for those interested.

Working with Windows 7 (64) Ultimate. To be quite frank, I thought the bundled software should be redundant an that W7 would have its own drivers. What a disaster! I spent a whole day of my life attempting to get the thing working. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CYBERLINK (The software supplier). I replaced my ailing (7 year old so not bad for a tenner, LG CD drive) with this one. Easy, 8 screws and a couple of leads, plug the tower back in, switch on and away we go. Nothing, Nada, zilch. Blue light on, fans running but that was it. Switch off, no response. Reset, DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT! OK, power down, take a deep breath, cup of tea. Start again. Black screen with the message which says "Your machine is broke, shall I fix it? This may take several hours" (my paraphrasing) OK, stare at 'We're fixing it screen' for three lifetimes and eventually, "Sorry, can't fix it" message appears. Switch off now works, as does another cup of Rosie. Starts again and Windows 7 is working normally and recognises new drive. (GREAT!) Loads Blu-Ray DVD into drive, Cyberlink PowerDVD clicks in and tells me that there is a fault and that the DVD won't play (AAARRRGGGHHH!). Included with their software is a utility (Advisor) which scans the computer for compatibility. I do so. They recommend that as I have the (supplied) version 7 software, all will be well if I purchase the version 9 software so after doing this and a download later, I run the crispy new PowerDVD version 9. This tells me that my video driver is preventing the Blu-Ray disc from playing properly. The Nvidia scan tells me that the driver is OK. Back to the Cyberlink site for a clue and eventually find that even though the Nvidia driver is OK it's a bit out of date.Read more ›
