Excerpt: It works just as I expected. The only problem I have experienced so far is that sometimes when I push the button to open the drive it takes a while before it finally opens. Apart from that it seems to do everything I wanted. Pleased with my purchase.
Excerpt: Before purchasing, I was very unclear about whether or not this works with a Mac, but so far it's worked flawlessly with my iMac on Yosemite. It burned a 23 GB blu-ray disc in about 11 minutes, which is pretty fast. No drivers needed, just plug and play.
The Guide to Play Blu-ray Discs With PowerDVD 10 on Windows 8.1
2 February 2015
Summary: Finally, I got PowerDVD 10 to play blu-ray discs on Windows 8.1. The free software PowerDVD 10 came with the drive which is an old version (latest is v14). Here are the things you need to do to make it work: 1. Insert BD Suite disc into your computer, choose to install PowerDVD 10. 2. Launch PowerDVD 10, click the upgrade button (the blue upper arrow in the top right corner), install the latest patch. 3.
Summary: Work perfectly as described. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for one minor design flaw. The cord that connects in to the power brick is difficult to attach without it slightly moving which causes no power to the device. If you happen to bump into the small power brick, the cord will move just enough so that it loses power.
Excerpt: I use it to upload apps that I am not able to download, but the speed of this writer to install the apps is real blazing. I just wish that they had USB 3.0 years ago....This item is worth buying if you need to install apps, and the footprint of it does not take up much room, as I have mine mounted vertically!
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: This is HUGE! I had a Buffalo USB2.0 model and was as quicker as this model, but easily 3 times smaller. However, it works perfectly on my iMac (late 2012) oand MacBook Pro (late 2013). As a videographer, I needed something reliable and quick. I'm using the ol' DVD Studio Pro with the burner and Toast Titanium. Yes, I would recommend to a friend. For some, the ''on/off'' button will be an issue, but as long as it works, it doesn't really bothers me.
) What did distinctly impress me at this early stage of the game was putting a disc into the tray NOT HAVING LOADED any software

Summary: This customer considers the Asus External Blu-Ray Burner USB 3.0 a remarkabke bit of gear, not withstanding it has yet to be fully pressed into service (due to being rather more than fully occupied at present!) What did distinctly impress me at this early stage of the game was putting a disc into the tray NOT HAVING LOADED any software/pilots was the compact window that suddenly appeared centre screen asking me if I wished to burn something — not having anything YET...
