Your opinions please,also,is there any recommended free Blu-ray playback software available.

I have read some reviews for this unit on the American Amazon site.A number make negative comments of the supplied software.

I would wait and see what's in the box as software included with drives is sometimes different.

Hi woodchip,

I used to own a PS3,sold it(didn't like it much) but kept the films.
It would be nice to have a proper Blu-ray player,but this is cheaper.

So to answer your question,yes I do need it :-)

Forgot to add....

Blu ray plays films at 24fps,ideally you should have a 24fps HDTV.
Without this support some films can look distorted and jerky
Mu HDTV has everything else except the 24 support :-(
