Steve, Cheshire

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Comes with fixing screws; advertsing makes a lot of shorter case, but its the same depth as the old DVD writer it replaces. Not yet tried blu-ray, works fine for CDs and DVDs

Craig, TechGuy

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The retail boxed version comes with everything you need including SATA cable, mounting screws, choice of black or silver face plate and CyberLink BD Solution v6 (includes PowerDVD 10, PowerProducer 5, PowerDirector 7, Power2Go 6, Powerbackup 2 & LabelPrint 2).
Just to be clear this is a Blu-ray reader and DVD/CD writer combo drive.
Bad points:
The software bundle does not include the latest versions of CyberLink titles but there again I wasn't able to find any other retail drive offering the latest versions either.
