Summary: DO NOT BUY ASUS products if the rebate is important to you. You will never the rebate. Check the Internet. They deny all the rebates after they make you jump through a long list of rules. I sent them everything they requested and they deny receiving the barcode and serial number.
Summary: Drive looks nice, and seems to be built well, but running Win 7HP x64 on an A6-3420M with a 512MB video card and 4G of RAM, I cannot get the drive to respond. My computer as crashed three times and the included directions are worse than horrible. Think I'm going to be sending this back.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
