Summary: The installation disk asked me to update the firmware by clicking on a link that took me to the Asus' website. The link that automatically updated the firmware didn't work, but I found the location manually. The problem was that there was no option for Windows 7, only Windows 8.
Summary: I have owned this drive for approximately 6-12 months now... I can't really recall the exact timeframe. When I got it, it was the fastest external blu-ray drive out there. Out of 20 burned Blu-Ray's I have made about 5 coasters, and only using Nero.
Summary: I work with video & photo files and have been using an Iomega Super 24x DVD Writer for the past few years and have burned 1,000+ discs with this drive without any issues. Since everything is going Hi-Def, I decided it was time to invest in a Blu-Ray burner with USB 3.
