Works fine, but no software. I knew that, I just didn't know how much of a pain it was to get a PC BR player working. I think I use Leawo.

Probably could have gone without a blu-ray drive but as near 40 year old I have a ton of physical media & I still prefer to buy physical copies of music, games and movies when I can. The drive itself is great. It's fast, like really fast ripping media & quiet. Can't ask for more than that.

Bought it on a deep sale and works as intended. Finding an application to play BR movies for free is the biggest pain about it though.

Meh. Not sure if it works anymore, but while it definitely did, did it work!

She wanted a CD-Drive. Found this on a Newegg flash sale. Boom.

Does what it says on the tin, fair warning you need paid software to actually play a Blu-Ray disc, the codec isn't free like DVD and CD.
