    Getting ready to downsize my rig in sig and my current LG Blue-ray drive is about a 1/4" too long for my new case. Seems like a decent deal and comes with 1 free disc....Don't think it has playback software but for the price it seems like a decent deal to me.

    Looking at the specs on Asus site and reading feedback on newegg the drive is of the short depth variety....Asus states 170mm = 6.69"

    great burner , have had one for some time never a bad burn. cant say that about the previous burner which was a older pioneer bluray. mine isnt as fast as the pioneer was but it also never failed on burning either.

    VLC with the keys. Otherwise your spending at least $50 on the software

    XBMC plays them too now iirc, both without menus though.
