Really should start buying parts for a HTPC, but my macbook pro is doing the job good for now.
Its just XBMC Eden does not support HD audio for the macbook yet.
Excellent a deal where my local PC World has actually got these in stock.

Same here for all the stores in and near Teesside. Just took the plunge as was going to do this last week but would of had to wait till I was back home, glad I didn't order last week now.

Just popped next door and it is a 12mm drive as opposed to the 9mm
Gutted but I think I've just found a sata to usb cable on eBay for £4 which will do the trick
Given that I always have a 2.5" drive in an enclosure in that bay anyway...makes sense getting this drive and using it as an external
Im gonna assume it requires third party software to play blu-ray films - often many people complain mistaking a blu-ray drive as a blu-ray movie player.
I think VLC can play it
Thanks for the deal - just bought it!

12mm is the standard for laptop ODD drives, 9mm tends to be on panasonic, apple and IBM machines and not all of them use this form factor.

As for playback of blurays VLC should play them fine

I don't believe VLC or any free software will play Blu Ray movies.

Please someone prove me wrong as I lost that ability on my acer laptop when installing Windows 7, i.e. lost the acer arcade deluxe software that did play blu ray movies. I tried VLC but it did not work.
Just picked mine up Last one on the shelf!
Nice...
Also on offer is this external blu-ray player...at £34.97 instead of £69.97

Should be great for playing blu-ray disc's via your media player
Have some heat.

Ordered, this will save me having to hook up my desktop internal sata drive via usb.

will fit , N17R dell n7110 ?
Officially, VLC doesn't play commercial Blu-Rays (due to the copy protection). However, this exists - vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/
Right, just downloading and installing the official VLC media player - and will test with a blu ray moview....

Are you sure you don't have something like PowerDVD installed also? I've tried the latest VLC on Windows 7 and it won't work for me.

I'll investigate the link storrdoff posted though
Nope, won't play a genuine blu ray movie (Ponyo) under Windows 7 Professional:

This Blu-Ray Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it.

Yes - I think rammiuk1 and astek123 are confused and have the AACS decoding library via another product.

You can try the unofficial VLC or I believe DAPlayer will also work; these are both in a limited way (no menus and some copy protected movies will not play).

stordoff's solution did not work for me.

DAPlayer won't play it either.

Buy a cheap decent Sony Blu Ray Player.

Thanks for the update.
Similarly to you I'd deleted PowerDVD from my lappy and had given up on finding a free movie player solution; fortunately I picked up a free license for a blu-ray ripper that has so far worked on most discs; I just play back from the HDD or use a 'real' blu-ray player through the TV.
great price, heated
fit a macbook pro 13?
VLC will not play a Blu-ray movie.

It can play the actual m2ts file from within the disc.

Disc > BDMV > Stream > Largest sized video

Cyberlink PowerDVD 11 is a good player for BD & 3D.
Guys and girls, install one of these codec packs for blu-ray support:
K Lite Codec Packs
^ even the smallest package has BR-D support.

Install it and associate all files with Windows Media Player, no more Quicktime, Realplayer, etc software required either!
Anyone know whether this will fit into an Acer Aspire 5741?

It will. You just need to download the Blu-ray plugin...

Good deal. Very rare for overpriced PC World to have a deal at such a low price.

The price of their cables are ridiculous! They must make over 1,000% profit on them.
