3.0 out of 5 stars Need Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 to play newest blu-rays!, 8 Jun 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plextor PX-B120U USB Slim Top Loading External Blu-ray Reader (Electronics)
The player is ok but it comes with Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 which is now obsolete: "As the development phase of CyberLink PowerDVD 9 Ultra retail version has now ended, there will be no further Blu-ray Disc compatibility updates for this version. Any Blu-ray Disc titles released after 2011 June may not be compatible with CyberLink PowerDVD 9 Ultra retail version."
You have to upgrade to PowerDVD 12 (40 eur) or use any other software (not sure if VLC will work).

We also have been sold a pig in a poke with this device (i.e. obsolete bundled software)! Bought as a present for me just before christmas, and so far only plays 2 out of 3, of the blu ray dvds we have tried to watch.
I would not buy any cyberlink product again! Or any product from Amazon with unspecified bundled software!

VLC will work. I'm sure there are lots of free options available if you just Google it.
