In general, what I do with this drive, is backup my blu-ray movies to an external hard drive, then stream them to my 52 inch samsung from my laptop using its HDMI port(which doesn't even have a blu-ray drive. If this sounds like something your trying to do then read on. If not, you should highly consider it.
Using AnyDVDHD by Slysoft first insert the blu-ray movie, right click the AnyDVD icon and click "Rip Video DVD to Harddisk". After that go to the directory in which you ripped the DVD to. Then Locate the correct .m2ts file that contains the movie (BDMV/STREAM).
An .m2ts file for dummy's is the blu-ray version of an .vob file. So usually the largest .m2ts file is the movie. You can run .m2ts files as video files through Nero v8 Showtime. Once you find the main movie .m2ts files (usually about 25 gigs). Locate another freeware program called TsRemux. This is just like DVDshrink 3.2 in the way that it can stream out unnecessary content (subtitles/foreign languages). Through TsRemux open up the .m2ts file that you have determined is the movie. Then you will see the extra contents. Select the first video stream, the first audio stream, and the first subtitle stream (they are usually the English ones, sometimes you may have to re-do this to locate the correct sound, but there should only be ONE OF EACH selected).Read more ›
I opened my Pinnacle Studio 12 software to a family video project I had set up the day I ordered the new blue-ray drive. I then went to the Make Movie tab on my software and the new drive was recognized. I had 23 gigabytes of AVCHD video edited and prepared for DVD authorizing, so I started the Make Movie process and away it went. This was a lot of 1080i video to burn so the computer took nearly 4 hours to render the project and then burn it to the disk, but in the end, I had my first blue-ray disk of family videos. The disk plays flawlessly on my Sony BDP-S350. The menu I set up in Studio 12 runs better than standard DVDs I had tried in the past.
This burner was purchased mostly to put my families home movies on a blue-ray disk so the footage is backed up in case anything happens to the original video saved on my computer's hard drive. I can also play my home movies easier since I don't have to view my computer on the TV and open up programs to find videos I produce. Now I just put a disk in the player and away the video goes. Also, playback of my HD video on my TV from my computer was pretty good, but still occasionally herky-jerky, but on blueray, my videos finally play smooth and at full resolution.
First, just the fact that HD-DVD/Blu-ray combo drives are now non-existent makes this item a rarity.
Even if you were to find such a combo player, a consumer home version would cost you at least $600-700.
You can get this baby for under $300 - all you need is a decently equipped computer.
Which gets me to the second point - you'd need at least a dual-core processor with 4 gigs of ram and a decent video card (something with at least 512mb of video RAM) to have good/smooth full-screen HD playback.
If you're just using it to burn CDs and DVDs then you can get away without having all 3, although to burn Blu-ray discs you would need a decent computer (but you wouldn't need a decent video card).
If you take into consideration you would need an Xbox 360 + HD drive + PS3, or comparable HD players, to watch movies what you can do with just this drive and a decent computer, PLUS the ability to burn CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs, then this is an absolute steal.
