When you buy something like this can you just go to the site to download whatever software was released with it ? If i were you i would check the companies site to check, maybe send them an email too and see if they will help you out. A lot of times companies have kick butt customer service, other times they do not.

Every single OEM part i have ever got came in bubble rap with no software at all. HDD, floppy drive, cpu (well the cpu came in plastic lol)

Yea it came with the cable but I used the one I have because it was an L shaped at the end and made the connection much better

But anyway... the player plays BD-50 disc fine... though I havent tried BD-25 but Im sure it works just as good. Picture quality in the movie is perfect! Though Im not sure if its in 1080p or 720p cuz my monitor is only 22" 1680x1050 resolution which is not 1080p

it can go up to 1080p, scale up to 1080p without losing the quality. Will give u black bars top n bottom of the screen since the screen isnt true 720p or 1080p n is just being a bit downscaled; also isnt 16:9 ratio, but 16:10.

Yea I do get the black bars on the top and bottom... LOL... I was wondering why I did hehe.... cuz I remembered when I watch the movies at home in Blu Ray I didnt get the bars.

I guess all I need now is a 1080p 46" TV in my dorm room Haha I do want one though
