In addition to Blu-ray playback, this drive can also read and write both CDs and DVDs. Due to its relatively low price it is a great upgrade for systems where Blu-ray movie playback capability is desired, like a home-theater computer.

Note that this drive does not come with software. DVD playback is built into Windows 7, but Blu-ray movie playback is not - so if you need that capability make sure to add a supported playback software option such as the Cyberlink PowerDVD software we carry.

This drive also burns DVDs and CDs so there's no need to get a separate DVDRW drive unless you just want a separate drive.

I've got one of these units. It works out quite well. Fair bit quieter than I expected, since most drives are rather loud. I'd still recommend getting the quieter firmware for this drive if you're getting a Serenity, though. It drops the speed, but gives even quieter performance.

Note: Blu-ray playback software must be purchased separately.
