I was hesitant to buy this product. People claim that it does not work for Windows 10, but I went ahead and bought it anyway. NOT only does it work with Windows 10 and Coral WinDvD 10, it also presents a stunning picture quality.
I think a lot of people buy this thinking it will work with Windows right away, but that's not the case. You need to have software that is able to support the movies you want to play. This drive fits the bill so long as you have the software that goes with it. I have used free blu-ray software and I got tried of trying to find the ones that work right, so I just finally bought a retail copy of playback software and never had a problem. Trust me, buy the software and get this for your laptop.
I have an Alienware M17, and I bought this because the there is no Blu-Ray drive on the laptop. I wanted to watch movies, and this little jewel has done just that for me.
This drive has worked as advertised for me.
Note that Mac and Windows do not work with retail Blu-Ray movies out of the box, but that's not the manufacturer's or the OS companies' fault. The media cartel apparently charges licensing fees to access its Blu-Ray key servers from commercial electronic products.
You have to find additional software to play retail Blu-Ray recordings. Some free, or close to free with restrictions and/or advertising. Others cost money. Don't pay more than about $40 for the player software, otherwise you're getting ripped off.
Notably, there are at least three different companies (or possibly the same company incorporated under three different names) peddling the same piece of software for prices ranging from $35 - $80.
The software to which I refer does actually work (at least on OS X El Capitan), regardless of the apparent shadiness of their marketing tactics.
Just don't buy the $80 version of the player...
I've only used it for DVD so far so i'm not sure how it performs with Blu-ray discs or other formats. I'm using this drive on a Macbook Pro running OS X - Yosemite, this review only covers it's performance on this machine and it will likely perform differently on other systems. For me it does the job i had intended however it was a rough start and has been kind of buggy. Originally i had the power cable and the usb lead connected to the computer by way of a powered USB hub. I tried a number of things for a few days but it would not appear as a drive on the machine. I finally got it working after attaching it directly to the computers USB input, without the additional power lead and resetting the NVRAM. After that it would show up on the desktop when i inserted a disc as expected. I have played a few DVDs with it and accessed disc data. Every once in a while i'll have to disconnect the drive and reconnect it before the disc would appear on the desktop. It works but can be a bit...
