When you open the box, you'll find only two items: one model iHES112 BD combo drive and one SATA cable. That's all; no manual, no software disc. The box is also plain brown box with Amazon sticker showing the product name (LiteOn 12x BD Combo bulk) and the ASIN code (aka catalogue number).

This very unusual packaging got me a bit intrigued and I did a quick [re]search, and didn't take long to find out the following facts:

- This drive is a BULK or OEM version, which means it doesn't come in a RETAIL package that has bits of extras and features with colourful box. It means resellers with a big clout like Amazon, or manufacturers who put this drive in their equipment, buy this Bulk version drive in big quantities. No wonder it arrived in a plain brown box.

- The Retail version of this drive goes by model name iHES212 (versus iHES112 for this one). You get extras like software and colourful box, but the significant difference is that the Retail version supports the LightScribe technology which allows the drive to write label directly on the disc (by using laser itching on discs that support this technology).

- Both models were released in or after May 2011 which means these are relatively very modern drives.

- The price for the Retail version here on Amazon is upwards of £57.99 - e.g., LiteOn IHES212-31 Internal 12x Blu-ray Retail Combo System- so you save about a tenner for picking this no-bells-and-whistles OEM version. If you're buying the BD drive for home use, and you do not already have a BD movie player, you may like the Cyberlink BD software that comes with the Retail version.

If your just playing Blu-Rays this is fine. I got this because I needed a faster drive as my 4x was not cutting it any more sadly this drive is actually only 1x faster than my 3 year old 4x drive (same make). Even brand new disks only run at a maximum of 5x so if you're using this for archiving your disks it's not really good value for money. From ISO to disk on the same PC I can get 25-40x so the issue isn't the interfaces or the PC its just a disappointing drive.

Please note that this is a Bulk (OEM) unit as in the description, for those that don't know this always means that no software is provided, so if you need some do some research on the current versions and then order it at the same time. Mine did come with a sata cable which to be honest I wasn't expecting.

This may not be the best Blu Ray drive on the market, but for £45, i can't complain. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Reads CDs, DVDs and blu rays really well, not too loud. Comes with red SATA cable which is nice - not sure if its SATA 2 or 3, but im guessing 2 - but overall great buy, the only other one i would consider for a similar price on Amazon was a Pioneer one for around £50 which i would have got, but it was out of stock.

I needed a SATA drive when I moved to a new motherboard and decided I this would be perfect just in case I wanted to watch some blu ray material. Read speeds are great and when installing Windows it was super fast writing on to my SSD.

Overall really pleased.

Remember this is OEM package so there isn't that much inside the box but that doesn't matter, though you'll need your own SATA cable.

Faced with gifts of several Blu Ray Disks, I was reluctantly compelled to purchase this drive - my usual method is to wait until the price of a Writer Drive becomes reasonable and then purchase. Bad news to come - I also needed to buy a software application to actually decode the disks - and a modern high performance graphics card to do the medium justice - wow, what a rip off.
But then you play the disks on a good HD TV with great sound and all the trimmings, and believe me, at last you have what is truly a Home Cinema System with superb, genuine hi-resolution graphics and stereophonic sound. How I wish all my movie disks were Blu Ray. Damn, looks like we'll have to start the collection from scratch!
The drive's other functions - dvd and cd burning and playback all are hunky-dory(I use ImgBurn for creating most types of disk, but I am sure it will work ok with other applications), so there is really nothing to criticise other than the inevitable high price for new, superior technology. If it had been cheaper, then 5 stars for sure. Jim McGoldrick, cablesafe.co.uk.

Got this so I could backup my blu rays to the media centre. Put in my pc rig with no issues, and reads at a fast speed. Fairly quiet also.
