  • Summary: What can I say about this drive, well, it works, it's fairly easy on the ears, and it comes with some software even. It doesn't burn blu-ray, but who needs to do that? If you rent an blu-ray, you can watch it on your computer. The face plate could be a bit more modern looking, and it would be nice if it was white to go with my case too (but that's just asking too much).
  • Pros: No problems,, Reads Blu-Ray, Reads and Burns DVD and CD, ASUS
  • Cons: Wish it was available in white

  • Summary: Easy to install and easy to use... not that anyone uses these anymore! Bought this to replace my Asus DVD only burner, opted for this over the Blu-ray burner simply since I have no desire to or plan to burn Blu-ray discs... that era has passed and I just got rid of the last of my DVD's... Will keep my 20 or so Blu-ray discs but now a days everything is downloaded and streamed... Buying discs for movies OR games is such a waist of time and garbage collection.
  • Pros: Made my Asus, quiet, fast, Blu-ray, cheap
  • Cons: None

FYI on the software issue

  • Summary: just ordered this drive even though the review said that there is no software to play blu-rays... so i went to asus's website which then led me to Cyberlink PowerDVD site where u can download the free version of the player which supports blu-ray..... so this is not a hard fix just wanted to let you know its still worth the buy. Asus is the best quality out there.

Excellent hardware but...

  • Summary: Let me make this short and sweet: this reader works great, even with 3D Blu-Ray... but it comes completely devoid of software (beyond the drivers necessary to install it). I had to buy PowerDVD seperately to use this at all with Blu-Ray discs. As an OEM it is an awesome deal but you need to know that you have to purchase software if you want to play Blu-Ray discs (you can always play DVDs with VLC ;-) )

  • Summary: Obviously you can't expect much from the lowest priced blu ray reader here. Gets the job done and that's about it. Don't expect much in terms burning speed or anything.
  • Pros: Mainly the price, does its' job.
  • Cons: Can't really complain about it because of the price.
