Summary: This drive is an excellent value! Very well made, solid, and comes with all the accessories you need to get going. The carry bag is a nice touch as well. Quiet is right! The drive is super quiet! No vibrations, and FAST! Why waste your money on anyting else!
Summary: This is one quiet and speedy drive. It has replaced my dead Lite-On CD-RW in my HP system. I've found that it has blown away the temperamental Lite-On in performance. The Lite-On drive was picky on the CD-R's you could use... not so with the ASUS as any CD-R works great.
Summary: I have this burner hooked up to my notebook. Most of my optical drive experience is with Lite-On so I was very curious as to how Asus would stand up. Their motherboards rock, so I figured their drives would too. I was right - this thing is quiet even at full speed with virtually no vibration.
