    This is just a start, let me know if there is anything I've missed or should add. I'll need help from you BluRay guys, if you hear about any new BluRay drivers let me know.

    I'd suggest you use Alienwares Sound / wireless / touchpad provided drivers. In my experience they are much better. They seem to just work better for me.

    I completely agree with Stone the Alienware drivers are the most stable drivers available. BUT every once in a while you'll find an annoying bug that only a new driver will fix. I had a bug with my m7700's touchpad, Synaptics fixed the issue but Alienware never provided a Official driver to fix the bug.

    Yea, it makes sense that they would not update the drivers sometimes, so I see how using the manufactures drivers could help.

    I would be careful of AW graphics drivers. I haven't tried the latest one yet, but from my experience with previous AW graphics drivers, they don't work very well.
