Yes, I have one. For standard DVD's, all of Sage's features are fine. For Blu-ray / HD DVD you will need to use PowerDVD7 Ultra. The drive comes with a OEM copy that will pass 5.1 via S/PDIF...but if you're using analog, you'll need to upgrade to the retail version. (OEM copy just does 2.1 via analog). There is a thread in the Customization forum on how to make PDVD integrate into Sage, and AVS forum has two threads for the drive and PowerDVD.

I got it from here where it's selling for a lower price (although I don't recall what the charge for shipping was):

The only thing I'll add to Polypro's statement is that I have been using this drive for about a month and a half and it's been flawless playing DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-Ray. Haven't even bothered using the burning or Lightscribe capabilities so I can't vouch for that.
