This drive is easy to install, easy to use, extremely fast and works as expected. I'd highly recommend the drive. My only complaint would be that if you think you can just install this drive in your current system and then be able to play Blu-ray movies you could be mistaken. Your video card and monitor must both be HDCP compliant among some other criteria. When you buy this drive and install the software one of the programs will be the "BD Advisor" which will check your system for compatibility across several criteria. Mine failed with the monitor. I could envision Adam Sandler screaming, "Information I could have used YESTERDAY!" So now I need a new monitor also when I didn't think I needed one. Do yourself a favor, download the BD Advisor program from the site below and check your configuration out entirely before you buy the drive. Nice to know beforehand what the upgrade will really cost you.

This Samsung Blu Ray Player / CD /DVD burner with Lightscribe is a very good drive.
Easy to install and easy to use.
I note another review that the box is supposed to include SATA cables and screws.
In my case they were not needed because I used the existing SATA cable and carrier.
The drive is great but be aware that you will need to purchase software
to view Blu Ray movies, the included software only plays DVD movies.
It includes the usual CD / DVD software for burning and playing.
The 12x BD read speed is nuch better than most drives and the blu ray movies play very smoothly.
Most of the other drives on Amazon are 8x or 10x

This drive works great with my ABIT IP35 Pro motherboard, even with the RAID/AHCI SATA controller which is known to be picky about optical drive compatibility. For those like me who are worried about lighting up the bedroom at night - the blue LED is only on during disc access. That wasn't clear from the pictures on the box. The front panel is very nice, and this is one FAST drive!

I've purchased four LG Blu-ray drives and have had some very time consuming issues with them intermittently not being able to read discs.
The Samsung has no such issues. The eject button and light are awesome. The door is actually clear so you can see the disc inside. Very fast!
Can find found it for less too.

I am giving the Bluray drive 5 stars because it works great, its quiet, and its fast. Installation was a breeze, and within 10 mins I had it installed and reading a bluray disc.

Now for the seller... Nowhere on the product page was this item listed as OEM. The drive came in a brown box with a cd (containing Cyberlink software), and nothing more. I don't mind OEM products, but it should be noted that you are not getting a "retail" box at all. If you're going to order this, then save yourself $10.00 and order it through Newegg.com where it is clearly labeled as OEM. For the same price you could also get the retail version.

After looking over various bluray dvd-drives and going throughout reviews I decided to give this Samsung combo a chance. I have a Samsung monitor and has lasted me a while now without any troubles.

Note: This is a OEM so don't expect nice brand packaging or anything like this. It came in bubble wrapping inside a plain cardboard box. I don't have a issue with this as long as the packaging is safe, which it was.

After getting the drive from its packaging it is a very sleek piece of hardware. It's a solid black with a silver, mirror-like tray front. It has a safety eject pinhole as well, in short, it's a well-built driver. I had to let the drive warm before installation as it was quite cold *Always follow the manual given*. It fit into my drive slot without any issues and the power cable and SATA cables hooked up with ease. The drive is a quick 1-2 minute installation.

NOTE: This does not come with a SATA cable. For most, this won't be a issue as your drive will have a sata cable regardless, but be wary in case you do not.

The driver was recognized at start up and it read my cyberlink software (provided with the drive) immediately. I noticed right away the blue light on the eject button is not always on so don't worry and it is very! quiet in comparison to my other drives.

Cyberlink Software: This software is an amazing add to a already great product. The menu is slick and the options are endless. With sections for music burning, data burning, video and photo burning, DVD and Blu-Ray player, copy and backup features and a light scribe control panel, it has everything you could ask for. I have tested the Music burning feature which burned a entire audio playback cd in under two minutes following that with a light scribe addition.

When this blu-ray player arrived, I installed it and was prepared to spend money on software to play my blu-ray disks. Much to my surprise and delight, Cyberlink software was included with the player! The player works great and the software saved me a lot of money.

This thing is absolutely beautiful in my Alienware. As mentioned in other reviews, this is an OEM drive...so it did not come with cables or screws, but it did come with software. I had no need for either the cable or the screws because my rig has all the plugs I needed anyway, and I have tool-less drive bays. It slipped right in. Install took all of 5 minutes and software took around the same. Popped in a blu ray and was off without any problems. The drive itself is very fast and it looks incredible, I love the clear front bezel and the blue light. It also does not have all the unnecessary labels on the front...looks very clean. I think I would like to replace my other DVDrw drive with this one now so they match. I will definitely recommend this drive to anyone...you won't find a better one for even twice the price.
