Anybody know precisely what software this come with including version?

The site says "Cyberlink TrueTheater" but not version. For the other linked BR drive from Samsung, they hardly say anything. A review says "Cyberlink software" and someone on the other thread says "Cyberlink suite". Any help, clarification or recommendation on the software side would be appreciated.

Looking at the reviews on the Dabs site, someone says it is Power DVD 8 which someone else says is not compatible with Windows 7. If you need to upgrade, then it will cost you.

So this a player not a BRay writer ?

Surely the Samsung Sata BD drive is better value for an extra £2 ( Dabs has £5 off for the hol).
It is a boxed retail ALL formats drive, which even writes to DVD RAM and has Lightscribe.

Am I right in thinking the Liteon is not a writer to any format, if so then no contest.:p

Nice find.

Both the BR players and writers now seem to coming down in price..... bout time too. Still a bit rich for what I want to pay, but a good trend nevertheless.

LG did the only proper all formats drive, gutted that they have discontinued it now.

You make a valid point however if you need to burn disks. if you do not however, this one is cheaper i guess. i would say both are hot deals.

Is there a free delivery code?

Want to order before they sell out, but I am too skint to pay 43.00, sounds strange, but 39.99 is just right

Rep for the first person who pm's me

They should post it here rather than privately to yourself. Rep is not a bartering tool.

Agreed, as someone said they have free delivery, but they said PM.

Got this earlier this week. The drive comes with PowerDvd 8 BD edition and there is no issue with Windows 7 (I use home premium 64 bit).

That issue was solved months ago, what version of Catalyst are you using?
10.8 was released yesterday and seems pretty good so far on my 5850.

After uninstalling use driversweeper to clean up the rest before a fresh install of the latest drivers.

Have to say, now that I know this is a reader only [won't write to any format!] then this is a bum deal.

What's the point really in this day and age?

The Samsung gets my vote.

Thank you for this! I've been looking to buy this drive for a few weeks and the cheapest I'd seen it was for £49.99 - so you have just saved me £10 X)

Mine too.

I got the samsung yesterday and must say its a lovely drive, nice and quiet reasonably quick load times and a really nice black finish on the drive that matches my HTPC case, for £2 more its a bargain especially as it burn dvd's/cd's as well

Well in a HTPC why would you need a burner - Im building a HTPC at the moment for someone and I know full well they wont be burning anything ever, so it makes sense to save the extra couple of quid - especially when that extra couple of quid could bump up the CPU model or HDD size.

Out of interest, what do people burn onto discs these days?
I've not used my dvd burner in years - completely redundant thanks to fast broadband, and high capacity external usb drives and/or usb memory sticks.

I know people that record TV shows and burn them to DVD to send to friends and family living abroad. I do burn discs at times so having a spare burner on a HTPC would be an obvious feature to go for at £2 extra. If you personally never burn discs at all then it’s a wasted £2 probably.

£2 is hardly going to bump you up a CPU model unless you are buying Pentium 4s on eBay.

Well Ive just been speccing up a new HTPC and the AMD Athlon II 240, 245 and 250 are only seperated by a couple of quid, so the saving would allow you to jump up a CPU model in this instance.

Great deal!
