Blu-Ray capable Player hardware
This is a bare drive, without the software to play Blu-ray movies. Getting Blu Ray movies on your PC apparently requires protected video output to stop you from recording a commercial blu-ray movie and selling that recording to your neighbors. So, make sure you understand what it takes to play back blu ray movies, if that's what you intend to do (Do you, for instance, have HDMI-out on your PC, and an HDMI monitor or TV to play it on?) and, you will need Blu Ray playback software, some of which you can try for free (Corel, for instance). Doing this will require fairly modern hardware on your PC, or you will need to upgrade your video. Excellent, inexpensive way to try Blu Ray on your desktop PC.
