Summary: FULL STARTS for this AWESOME burner. Pros: 1. This burner is compatible with almost every brand of discs I've ever bought, including Optical Quantum, Verbatim and SONY. 2. It's USB 3.0, means you can burn even 25-GB Blu-Ray's at 10X. It's way more faster than either disc (4X) or drive (8X) specification. And I never failed one single disc at 10X, luck? Cons: 1. Pretty noisy at high speed (6X+ I suppose).
Excerpt: Although it has an awkward shape i dig it..it works so far perfectly I've only had it for a week...but its fast as all get out...and i don't have any new coasters i.e bad disks...and the diamond lights up bonus!!!
Looks very nice though. Took me a while to figure out ...

Summary: Did not know it was so large. Looks very nice though. Took me a while to figure out how to use the power switch (form over function, totally). It requires its own power supply which is lame but oh well. Would have been nice if it was bus powered. Played a movie to test it out on the "free mac blu ray player" OS X app, everything works fine and the device is very quiet which is nice.
Summary: This works well with my mocbook pro retina as I have been able to burn blu-rays. The one issue I have is, my Adobe Encore dvd software does not recognize it, so I have to burn the blu-ray file to a drive, and then copy that file onto the blu-ray disk. It work fine that way, but the extra step is a minor time inconvenience.
Summary: Asus has the worst customer services I have ever had the displeasure of contacting. My product broke and they are making ZERO effort to replace it. If you want to be lied to and sent in circles, spending hours on the phone with people unable or unwilling to help this is the brand for you. Products are good until they break, at which point I wish you luck getting them fixed. Two months and I still have no resolution. Will Asus step up and fix this?
