Summary: I check on their documents they scanned and it just so happens that they don't have my barcode scanned in there. They are running a scam and I don't appreciate it.
Pros: Pros: - Not their rebate processing center...
Cons: provided all necessary documentation for the online mail in rebate to ASUS, even cut out the barcode directly from the box and included it in the letter, but then I receive an email saying "Original UPC/Serial Number Barcode Label is missing" even though I cut it out right from the box.
Cons: Honestly, I almost didn't buy this drive after seeing its egg rating, but after actually using it, I am not disappointed. Read the reviews. They're mostly complaints about fixable problems. Only con is the poor rating on newegg :(
Cons: This device is supposed to read Blu-ray discs. After installing the device and accompanying software, I inserted a Blu-ray disc of a TV show to try out the device. It won't play. I tried contacting ASUS support and can't get through. If the problem isn't resolved soon, I will have to RMA the devices.
Summary: If you want the faster and multi format BD,Bd dl, Bdxl,this is the bd Writer to get. Write with no error and quickly. I got no problem with the ASUS BW-16D1HT Extreme since my purchase and I recommend it to every body who want a good BD burner.
Cons: The one I got was missing the OTHER software CD that includes the Blu-ray player and other items. The only CD I got was for the burning utility. So, I have no idea how well this even works for playback. Very disappointed.
Pros: Worked quite well for 2 months. The drive read all the discs I inserted, never had any problems burning, never any problems reading discs, and actually burnt discs quite fast.
Cons: Drive DIED 2-months on the dot after purchase. It has stopped reading all discs. I've tried all types of discs and none of them read. I wouldn't expect this from a burner that I paid $120+ for. Very disappointed. The worst part is, my PC will not boot if the drive has a disc inserted...
Summary: Works fine, looks fine, burns fine. Not happy this retail version didn't come with any software at all, no burning software, and no software that lets you watch a blu-ray disk. Kinda stupid selling a blu-ray reader/writer, which unless you get software for it somewhere else it's a doorstop.
