Editors' Review

Working with different types of movie files and disc formats, including Blu-ray, can be a challenge using native Mac programs. Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac allows users to play movie files, DVDs, and Blu-rays from one application with good quality.

Available as a free trial version that places a watermark on Blu-ray playback, the full, unrestricted version costs $39.95. The trial version allows unrestricted use of movie files and DVDs. While the program only took up approximately 30MB of space, the download and installation took approximately 30 minutes, despite the high-speed Internet connection used. Once this completed, the actual installation and setup were accomplished cleanly. The user is prompted to enter an email address to purchase the full version, but can cancel this option to work with the trial version. Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac did not have any obvious instructions, but there was some technical support available for updates. The program did have an easy-to-use interface similar to other player applications. Users can clearly select from files or discs to be read and the buttons for each function are clearly labeled with simple graphics. When we selected movie files, the playback began quickly and the video quality was good. Similar results were obtained using a DVD. The buttons available for play, pause, fast-forward, and back were well placed, as was the video slider showing the time played and remaining.

For those seeking playback capabilities for multiple types of video media, including Blu-ray, Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac is simple to use and plays videos well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac 2.11.7.

Pros

Video player seems to work

Cons

Program installs about 3 other programs not asked for, not available to filter out via custom install. Also seems to attempt to hijack some web sessions.

This software should not be allowed on CNET as bundled. Uninstalled immediately.

 |  Version: Aurora Blu-ray Player 2.13.0

Pros

I use the Samsung SE-506BB(white) BD drive to play my Blu-ray collections, this tool just works fine. It jump directly to the main movie which may be conveniently. But it is a pity that the full Blu-ray menu is not available.

Cons

It will be better with the full Blu-ray menu available.

Summary

For its price and image quality, it is worth to have now.

Once order, you get the lifetime version, that is a good policy. Hope more Blu-ray feature be updated, so does the customer service.

"Imperfect player and much worse customer support"

April 26, 2013  |  By wren519

2013-04-26 04:45:13  |  By wren519

 |  Version: Aurora Blu-ray Player 2.12.4

Pros

Blu Ray movies do LOOK good.
Very easy installation
User Friendly

Cons

Subtitles do not work properly. Foreign languages are not translated unless you have Closed Captioning and have everything translated, even the sounds. If you are hearing impaired this is not a problem.
Customer support is only in email and after saying how to turn on subtitles (which was not the issue) and never offering me trouble shooting steps, they effective called me a liar saying that their subtitles work and said that was the end of it.
They do not offer refunds.

Summary

The quality of the video looks great and very user friendly but with lack of 3-D support, buggy subtitles and effectively non existent customer support this product is lacking. There are better options elsewhere.
