The drives that support BDXL should in theory be able to read the 4K Blu-rays. However, the bigger problem is that there's currently no software to play 4K Blu-ray movies.

Some other things to keep in mind is that not all 4K monitors support the 4K Blu-ray specs. You need to make sure that the 4K monitor supports HDCP 2.2. Same deal with the video card. It may support 4K in general, but it may not support 4K Blu-ray which has specific hardware requirements.

TU, OP - thanks. Also, I've been playing with the idea of watching 4k films on my computer; I have a 4k monitor and a compatible 4k video card. Are their any optical drives that will play 4k discs yet? I tried a Google search, but wasn't seeing anything. Would appreciate any insight - thanks!

with such poor software support for computers, i feel like playing blurays on a PC is dumb... im going to get a cheap bluray player, stick it under my monitor, and never worry about the shitty software ever again.

No, that was a portable model that only burns at 6x. This is for a SATA III internal model for a desktop that burns at 16x (the fastest speed currently available today).

FWIW, this is the lowest price this model has ever been by $1.

CyberLink PowerDVD Ultra 15 is pretty solid on the build I'm at. There is a new version (16.0) that came out which still has some bugs to be worked out.

Thanks for that, TVMP. Think that I may bite on this one. FWIW, I actually bought the external drive from one of your threads earlier this year and it already died (specifically, it was the power source that died). YMMV

lol, they're going to delete a deal thread because you dislike rebates?

Reviews on amazon. Seems pretty solid.

Has anyone seen a white faceplate for this one, or another white blu ray burner? Annoying that nice white cases are sold and then you can't get peripherals to match. I've been hesitant to paint a drive, but it may come down to it.

Sand and spray paint?
