    I've recently improved somewhat the situation of my PC - and now reckon I can get away with a bit of blu-ray on my PC. Spec is in my sig, basically I've got a Q6600 Quad Core @ 2.4Ghz each, X1950pro and 2Gb RAM - The X1950pro is HDCP compliant over DVI, and my TV is (it works with my PS3 over hdmi->dvi)

    however this drive seems to be my only option - I can't find any other drives that are readers only -

    Pioneer BDC-202BK

    are there anymore I should consider? Anyone had any experience with this drive?

    (btw i'm selling the PS3 :smashin:)

    Agree, I have a much lower CPU spec than insomniak123, same RAM though running Vista Ultimate and PowerDVD Ultra. GPU is an ATI2600XT, BD is Pioneer BDC-202.

    CPU runs about 20% decoding full HD H.264 with HD audio stream

    I have the Pioneer Drive as well - works like a charm.
