I just wanted to figure out an easy way to play blu-ray discs on my PC, so initially considered purchasing a generic blu-ray player from Amazon for about $50. I then realized that for another ~$50 I could have a way of copying all my family pictures and videos on to blu-ray discs. I use carbonite and an external hard drive for daily backups, but I can put the blu-ray discs in a fire-proof box and forget about them. The 506BA model got a good review from a major PC magazine, so I figured newer 506BB version might be just as good. The drive is very compact and lightweight. The case is plastic. It seems a bit fragile -- if you step on it by mistake I have no doubt the case will crack and the drive will be destroyed. But not many people tend to walk on blu-ray drives, so that's probably not a problem. The drive is very quiet -- can't even hear it with blu-ray video playing. The size and weight is such that I can easily put this into a laptop bag and take it on the road with me. Trial software packages to play blu-rays and do other media related things were included with the drive but I did not use them. Instead I installed the free versions of DVDFab Passkey 8 and VSO Media Player, as suggested by some other reviewer named Bman, and I'm watching the blu-ray discs from Netflix without a problem. I'm happy with this purchase, though at ~$97 it's pricier than what I initially thought I wanted.

I bought this to start ripping Blu-rays that I own into iTunes Movies. The drive works great provided you use the right software, MakeMKV and Handbrake. Another pro about the drive is it only requires 1 USB 2.0 port.

What is included
------------------
Included with this purchase is the external drive, one usb to micro-usb cable, and trial versions for the following software: PowerDVD (for blu-ray disc playback), PowerProducer (DVD authoring), Power2Go (Data burning), InstantBurn (Packet writing), LabelPrint (Label designs), and PowerBackup (data archiving and backup). This software is bundled together on one disk, and is called the CyberLink Blu-ray Suite.

Dimensions: 145 x 19.5 x 145 mm
Weight: 312g -- Very light, and very portable.

Review
--------
I have been using this drive for a couple days now, and couldn't be more pleased. It is extremely easy to use, as all you have to do is connect the usb cord from the drive to your computer. My computer (running Windows 7) recognized the drive immediately, and I was able to start using it. I then installed the trial software to see if I would be interested in any of the programs. I have been playing Blu-rays with PowerDVD, but there are many programs out there that you can download for free as well. It is also very easy to backup your collection via MakeMKV. Each of my backups has typically taken about 45 minutes (keeping full quality, but no menus). I have also tested it on Windows 8, and have experienced no issues.

The drive is extremely portable because of its minimal weight and size, and surprisingly still feels pretty durable. The nice glossy finish on top also makes it an appealing piece of equipment. I would definitely recommend this blu-ray/dvd drive.

UPDATE AS OF 3/23/2013
----------------------
The drive is still working just as great as when I first picked it up back in January! Couldn't be happier at this point in time.

UPDATE AS OF 10/22/2014
----------------------
Just like the day I received it, I have had no issues. Still works perfectly, and couldn't be more pleased.

Product works well out of the box with Mac OS X Mountain Lion for DVD's and CD's, but not Blu-ray. Included software is for PC only. If you need to watch, burn, or rip Blu-ray content on your Mac, you'll need 3rd party software. A few "free" or open-source options to consider are: VLC Media Player, Make MKV (for ripping), and Handbrake (for conversion/compression of MKV files to iTunes or Apple TV compatible format). The drive is convenient in that it doesn't require a secondary power supply, just a single USB connection for power and data.

I purchased this item solely for the purpose of being able to watch Blu Ray on my Macbook Pro which is about a year old. This product can potentially do a lot of things so wading through them to find if this product can work for what you need can be a challenge. So if you want to watch a Blu Ray Disc on your Mac-This is for you.

There are some reviewers that just state, "Plug and Play. This item is great!" Well, plug and play for what? Unless you already have some software that most people don't have on their Mac's this USB Drive is NOT plug and play and needs additional software purchased to allow you to actually view a Blu Ray movie.

Out of the box you can see that the item is a good size to travel with and contains only a USB cord. Very nice that it powers itself from the computer vs. having to plug in the wall. I have heard some of these Blu Ray drives need two USB ports but indeed this one just needs one. Immediately my MAC showed the Blu Ray movie as a BD on my desktop, but when I click on the disc it showed a bunch of files-not of which would play on my MAC. I tried iTunes but that did not recognize the disc and I also have Toast Titanium which also would not play the Blu Ray. So as I sifted through the reviews-thankfully another person mentioned that a software program to download is MacGo. It's $46 total right now-so not cheap but it allows you to download a trial copy which shows a watermark across the disc. I recommend this first to test it as you can always purchase the real thing after the test-which is exactly what I did. I tested this drive with 7 different Blu Ray's from movies to TV shows from new movies to old and all of them played like a dream and were beautiful on the MAC.
