Hi, I've got an Evesham EBox (runs Windows XP Media Center), and it's DVD player checked into the Wooden Waldorf.

I'd like to upgrade to Blu Ray while replacing, and wondered if anyone has a suggestion regarding a good/reliable drive that meets the following criteria:
  • Slim (laptop-size)
  • Plays Blu Ray DVDs
  • Multi-region for normal DVDs*
  • Slot loading
  • Windows Vista/Windows 7 -compatible (I'm upgrading the OS)
Any suggestions appreciated!


* There's an FAQ on AV Forums that states that normal DVDs are region-locked. Surely somone makes a multi-region DVD player meeting the above spec? My old DVD player is multi-region, so here's hoping!!
