ASUS drive ROCKS! Nero burns!

Peter A, Amazon
31 May 2015
  • Summary: Overall this looks and feels like an excellent drive. I bit bigger and heavier than I expected, as I've only had internal DVD/CD drives. I think they needed a bigger heavier motor and gears to get the speed and accuracy this thing has. Plugged it in and it installed PnP right away.

Not a portable by any means, but not intended ...

B. Lunzer, Amazon
16 May 2015
  • Summary: Not a portable by any means, but not intended to be. It is fast and reliable. If you're used to starting copies and having them fail - get this burner. Working with a mac I can reliably burn even up to the hardest blu-ray disks. No problemo.

Awesome Drive and the rebate process is the easiest I've used yet

GuardianAD, Amazon

  • Summary: Great looking drive and it worked great the first 3 times. Never would read Blu-Rays and after 3 uses it stopped reading DVDs and CD-ROM discs. Initiated RMA process with ASUS and hopefully they will honor their warranty and I'll get a drive that works.

Excellent Burner

Tommy W., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Pros: 2ND Review had for about 5 months. Burner is Great. software that is package with it is useless. Great Burner for DVD, CD , BDR & BDRE works on Linux using KB3
  • Cons: Software is Power2Go LE would not work with higher screen resolutions at all. Constant nag screens even if you are performing functions enabled with LE version. Many of those functions don't work well. Use another package such as Ashampoo Studio 2013 which is free.

easy to find by touch

W Douglas Finch Jr, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: Do not see a problem with power switch at rear; easy to find by touch. Fast. It worked well. Previous Samsung external bluray drive gave constant write errors when burning movies. This drive worked perfectly with DVDFab. It IS bulky, but that seems a minor drawback. highly recommended.

Awesome Burner!

Karl J. Schneller, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I love my Blu-Ray Burner. It has not turned out one dud yet. The clarity of the finished product is amazing on the television. It took me a couple of days to figure out what they are calling an eject button, but it really is there.

Great Drive, classy style.

Anonymous, Newegg
3 December 2014
  • Pros: what's not to love? amazing drive. works great in Linux. Sabayon/Gentoo KDE user. I needed this for my custom mini ITX steam machine.
  • Cons: little on the bulky side, but not a real problem. USB3 cables are always shorter than I'd like. But this is the case on all USB 3 cables lately.

Paul R. Fontenot, Amazon
27 November 2014
  • Summary: I DID A WHOLE LOT OF RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET; LOOKED AT MANY REVIEWS OF "THE BEST" BLU RAY DVD PLAYERS/BURNERS; THIS ONE WAS IN THE TOP 3 IN EVERY REVIEW I READ and #1 IN SEVERAL REVIEWS. IT WAS A NO-BRAINER TO SELECT THIS OPTICAL DRIVE FOR MY SYSTEM.

NOT Rip Locked, Awesome Drive

Daniel N., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • Summary: Power cords have Velcro straps for keeping things neat, a little plus that makes me happy. The rubber feet on the drive and stand are very solid and keep the drive from moving around and dampens vibrations.
  • Pros: Currently ripping Oblivion Blu Ray at 4X ~17M/s so this drive IS NOT LOCKED at 2X, previous poster must not be doing something right. I love ASUS and will continue to honestly support them so long as they continue to make quality products.
  • Cons: Power switch on the back is designed to match the spaceship design, would prefer a normal rocker switch, not worth removing an egg though.
