Nope, this is just a reader. Seems like a decent price for this.
#4
I was about to click order when I decided I'd have a look a these comments - sorry but with delivery price included is just another 40-something quid 4x BD-ROM.
#5
yep seems cheap, suitable for the old HTPC, hot. they are coming down in price hope the writer follow

Technically you could encase this as well and make a decent drive for a laptop although Im not sure if USB2 would be up to 1080p data stream, but firewire maybe

I still think the Samsung at £49.99 is worth it in the long run, I've just bought one myself: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191042

- More reliable well known brand
- Can also burn DVD and CD, not just play them
- up to 8x rather than 4x on blu-ray playback

Liteon is by far a much more famous brand for optical drive manufacturing than Samsung. They are one of the largest OEM manufacturer of optical drives in the World. Indeed the Samsung drive you referred to may well be manufactured by LiteOn.

There are USB 2.0 Blu-ray drives, so USB 2.0 would be able to handle the 1080p stream.

If only they were this price with the ability to burn discs! I don't see a lot of point to watching blu-rays on a normal pc. The ones you hook up to the TV, yes, but even still....

Dang thats cheap ! nice one :-)

480 Mbp/s = 60MB/s Theoritical maximum so it defenitelty can, there's nothing special about bluray, it needs only about 1MB of data a second.

I hope to copy some bluray discs given to me as a present, so I can play them on my WD HDTV. I only have a laptop, so am interested in this idea of encasing this type of device and connecting via USB. Can anyone expand on this please?

Nice one, these things are just getting cheaper by the day! Heat added.

Thanks for that. Looks just the ticket. I assume there is no benefit to me buying an eSATA cable specifically for this, I guess a standard USB2 cable would suffice?
#20
no need for esata unless transfering data at high speed
usb is fine for watching films or normal use.

Cheers. I simply want to backup my BluRay films to MKV, then copy them to my WD HDTV. USB sounds fine.

Just thinking of ordering one of these, and the enclosure. Just a question, So, I stick the drive in the enclosure, connect the enclosure to my laptop via USB. Does this also provide the power for the drive? Also, if I did get an eSATA cable, would this provide power?
