People may vote cold based on this just a warning. external at less the £10 extra.

Personally its two different things, but this how the forums going.

yeah i did see this but if you have a desktop with external HDD then to have an external webcam, a printer, a usb hub and add a blue ray drive to this and its just clutter on your desk and more things to plug in (ive used about 8 plug sockets!!!)
Internal is always handy

I agree.

posted a month ago http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=295931 but it has been reduced by £1ish
#6
This is a great drive - Ive had mine about 4 months now and cant fault it at all. HD films are amazing. About the same price I paid as well - so a good price but no hotter than normal.
#7
Standard price for the last 3-4 months to be honest. I reckon it must have been posted here at least three times and was eing sold at Scan just after Christmas at £60 (although price has since gone up).
#8
Just installed one of these - works a treat for me, as good as my stand alone players!

You must install the supplied Cyberlink PowerDvD 7.3 and then the updated patch when prompted (102mb) to be able to play HD-DVD.

Later versions removed HD-DVD support due to licensing costs.

Your assuming most people have all these external bits, alot may not, in which case external is handy as its simple to install and move between computers

I would wait for the Blu Ray writer to come down to this price before I would be tempted to buy.
#11
I got one of these drives for Christmas, £70 delivered, so not a really hot deal.

However, the drive seems pretty good, slightly noisy. But blu-ray on my big tv is AMARRRRRZING!.

yup, waiting for a writer too, not got much use for a reader, but 50gb archives would be very handy, although i expect the blanks are a tenner each and take an hour to write!

this has hovered around that price for months on ebuyer. there was word on another forum of some new drives bringing the prices down next month - i assume faster ones or something, can't remember.
#13
Would be very handy in my media centre to be . . . but I'm waiting for a better deal.

bought this on sunday , just waiting for it to be delivered

just a quick 1 gaz , have you got it plugged in to a flat screen tv , if so is it better to have it through vga or hdmi?

HDMI is normally better as VGA input on many TV's have limited resolution where as HDMI will allow FULL HD signal 1920x1080.

Also you may have issues with HDCP (or whatever it is) with VGA unless your running AnyDVD that is!
#17
I got one of these for Christmas two things to be aware of :

1) You need a HDCP enabled graphics card and monitor (your monitor ought to do at least 1920x1080 too!)

2) Mine is going to be replaced/swapped as there is a HD-DVD reading problem. It won't detect the discs :( I've been in touch with the LG support people and they say its a known problem.

I bought one of these in the summer (when it was around £85) and love it. I have a Dell 2709W which can do HD so I watch both HD-DVDs and Blu Rays on my PC.

Some people found the blinking blue LED too much and put a bit of electrical tape over it.
#19
It's been this price for quite a while now, still hot none-the-less. This deal reminded me of it and I swiftly ordered one from amazon for £67 (few £s extra but I still have a few days left of free Amazon Prime so it will be arriving tomorrow!)

I'll let you guys know how it works out.

I've tried both DVI & HDMI , don't have a VGA cable (as previous, most likely would have HDCP / resolution problems);

My Rig:

Dell 2408WFP 1080p monitor - HDCP compliant
8800GT 512mb GPU - currently through DVI (I reserve HDMI for the PS3)
2GB 800mhz memory
Q6600 2.40ghz processor

Runs as it should on this setup - absolutely no stutters or issues. Try running the BD Advisor from the Cyberlink site to assess if your set up is capable of playback.

#21
Out of interest, how do I know whether this will work with my Dell Vostro laptop, and how good will the picture be when linked to my new flatscreen tv? I mean, is this a viable alternative to having a blu ray dvd player?
#22
Got this for Xmas - easy to install - no probs with software, plays HD and Bluray brilliantly - I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! :-D
#23
very good price!
#24
Has this got HDMI out?
#25
It's internal, works through the magic of the computer it's in.
banned#26
bd advisor is cack! if you havent got powerdvd installed - it will say your setup is not bluray compatible!

i am using arcsoft media theater - powerdvd did not work no matter what i updated!
#27
kam1nsk1 - this is an internal 3.5" drive 3.5" which fits a PC, it won't fit in any laptop that I've seen!

jamba - No HDMI this is an internal drive - it comes with loads of software including PowerDVD Ultra 7 and all the cables you need including a Molex - SATA convertor (coverts the standard power plug into one that will fit a SATA device) and a SATA data cable. You will need a HDCP enabled graphic card with HDMI / DVI to output picture to your screen.

Regards, Geeza
#28
jihadijulz - true, but it will tell you what available capable components you have, i.e. processor, memory, HDCP graphics card - its pointless getting the drive if other components will let you down.

Nonetheless, sorry to hear you couldn't get the supplied player to run. I've read some posts with people having problems - especially Vista owners. I've actually got the supplied copy V7.3 & V8.0 Ultra installed.

it was helpful at first - then after getting the drive setup with the correct software and new gpu - i realised it wasnt all thet helpful.

i had a x1950pro 512mb card which bdadvisor said was fine, didnt like my monitor and powerdvd wouldnt play - even when connect to a 42" 1080p monitor by dvi to hdmi cable!

changed powerdvd to arcsoft theater media player - played ok, but bdadvisor says software not compatible and monitor not compatible. worked fine- apart from the juddery palyback.

changed my gpu to hd3850 512mb - now works absolutely fine on 42" and 19" monitor - got rid of bdadvisor before enabling this setup as it was hit & miss - more misses than hits imo.

and boy is powerdvd a pain to remove.................

Ah yes, was reading the bits about external ones being almost as cheap and the mind wandered off a bit!

Same question as before then in regards to an external one, would it be as good as a proper blu ray player or not?

jihadijulz

Your explanation helped me understand the problem you had - in essence the badly reported info cost you a new GPU with further time and hassle to boot. PC's are like people - all individual and prone to letting you down at times!!! You got there in the end - perseverence and a deep pocket pay off :thumbsup:

I think that the Blu-Ray & HD-DVD playback is as good as my PS3 & EP-35 player. Everyone has a different perception with some people even thinking there isn't enough difference in High Def to warrant moving from DVD. There are some poor quality Hi Def films out there which could lead to this.

Bear in mind that you don't get a remote control, its playback is controlled by mouse and I think you'll be very pleased once set up and configured.

This is £5.75 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129977

And gives you remote control over the Cyberlink PowerDVD player. Its a great little remote for the money.

I saw the very same remote on offer at Scan for £3.75 yesterday....take a butchers at the following;

http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/products/compare_44_ENU.html

Seems to lack certain functionality people may require, typically;

Blu-ray Discs & HD DVD * controls (Power DVD Ultra)
Blu-ray Discs & HD DVD menu during playback
Color key support for Blu-ray Discs & HD DVDs
Select items button
Last Channel button

TBH, I don't really know much about configuring the remotes for use - it may actually be totally capable. Thanks for your feedback.

Best Regards, Geeza

It might say that but I use it to control my HDDVD and Bluray films in PowerDVD 7.
