I was surprised with this blu-ray reader. First, I didn't read the description and was happy to see it was a retail unit. So no need to get screws and a sata cable. It drive is also very beautiful (fake mirror on the tray, blue led).

Experience: 1 Months
Play every blu-ray movies I throw at it except one
Cannot play Avatar blu-ray with the latest bios installed
I bought this drive in the Markham NCIX store helped by one of their staff (having blu-ray software is one of my main requirement). I installed the drive and the bundled software POWERDVD 8, and it blows through all my blu-ray movies with great clarity, beautiful quality and no hicup whatsoever except Avatar which I work around by installing a decoding software. I am very happy with the NCIX staff who help me picked this drive and the overall peformance of the drive. However, I am taking off 1 star for the product as Samsung have not yet resolved the Avatar playback issue.

-Works perfectly
-No crapware included
-Recognized instantly on Windows 7
-Tray is somewhat weak
Does all that I need it to. Plays & reads blu-rays perfectly, reads & writes to DVD's and CD's as well. Unlike the last time I got a DVD drive, there was no DVD aleady inside it! :P the only weakness I have found is the somewhat flimsy tray, but I find a lot of trays like that anyway At a price of $59.99 (thanks to one of the previous sales) it's nothing but pure excellence!

easy to install
easy to update  firmware with the samsung ODD firmware Liveupdate 
the software bundle that comes with it not great but does the trick
I purchased this to play blu rays as i already had a regular burner, this is great for the price compared to some of the other drives. I have not had any problems with it or conflicts with the other drive looks better in real life than in the pic as well. I would recommend it.

Blue Ray and DVD in one
I use this in a HTPC setup. When you first startup it can be a bit noisy but it settles it down after a while. Haven't tried the DVD burner as yet but it shouldn't have any problems with it.
I would buy it again.

Works, nice looking.
I bought this for my HTPC and it works great. I grabbed it while on sale and it was a steal. The software bundled with it isn't the best but it works!

Blue ray player/dvd burner for under 100 dollars.
Plays blue rays great and is a big difference from regular DVD.
Burns great although only burned on a couple dvds since purchase.
None known.
I bought this with my latest PC Build. I always wanted a Blu ray player and i got this one for 79.99. I couldn't pass up the price. So far it has worked flawlessly and I tried a blu ray move on my high def monitor and WOW, what a difference compared to a regular DVD Movie.

Fast/Feature Full rom device at a great price
Software it comes with is a little clunky
Had to install 3rd party software for Blu-Ray playback to be seamless. Have completed several burns with this unit (CDs, DVDs and DVD-DL) very fast and accurate (no coasters)

3-in-1 player
dvd/cd writing with lightscribe ability
no blu-ray writing
I purchased the SH-B083L a few days ago, it arrived today. The drive was easy to install, even in the Antec 900. The black color of the drive makes it fit right in with the case.

The drive came with a SATA cable, and 4 screws to mount the drive, it was very easy to install.

I have not tried playing a blu-ray disk, however I did copy some music files to a really old CD-RW I had. It took about 5 minutes for the copy to complete (12 songs). There was no performance decrease during writing either.

The product comes with a lot of useful software, including lightscribe. I did not have any lightscribe disks, but the setup was simple, and a nice touch.

I was very happy for the price I got it at ($80 CDN) and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something like this.
