Defective out of the box

TM, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Defective right out of the box. Tray would not open after initial installation. After using a pin to force the tray to come out, I loaded it with a disk and it operated as it should. After several openings and closings it now operates with an obvious hesitation. Not up to par with the reputation Asus created with their mobo business.

No opinion yet as it arrived dead-on-arrival

Wellcraft19 "Wellcraft19", Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: Will have to RMA - which sort of sucks. Will update once new unit has arrived. Door would not open up, when force opening and putting a DVD in, only green LED would lit up, but disk not spinning. Annoying.

More trouble than it is worth

Lozo, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I installed this in a home built Win 7 x64 machine. It works well enough, but has a flaw that I have so far not been able to solve and have already spent much too much time trying to do so. It will burn DVDs, but when you are trying to make multiple copies, the 2nd disc is not recognized. The message is "There is no disc in the CD or DVD burner". This device uses the standard Windows driver and I could not find an alternative driver.

Short Lived

  • Summary: This replaced a CD DVD on my desktop. It is showing symptoms of dying. I will not recommend this to a friend. Look at a different brand.

Does not work.

Donny,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I ordered this because I thought my last drive was dying on me after years of service. After I got it, I put it in my computer and then tried it out. It went very slow then just stopped working all together. Glad it was a cheap buy. I still like ASUS products. Just this didn't work out.

Leise ist anders

Captain Future, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Habe mir diesen Brenner wegen des Zusatzes 'silent' im Namen gekauft. Das Gerät ist aber mindestens genauso laut wie mein vorheriger LG Brenner, wenn nicht sogar noch lauter. Mit 'leise' hat das also überhaupt nichts zu tun. Auch die Suche nach eventuell einem anderen Treiber hat nichts gebracht, das Gerät bleibt SEHR laut.

launisch

Entrup "Ouzokiller", Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Meine Erfahrung nach 12 Stunden: Mal will es mal nicht, Mal will ich die DVD entnehmen und dann geht es entweder gar nicht auf oder es schließt sofort wieder. Vorhin wurde es noch von Windows erkannt, jetzt nicht mehr. Dieser Fehler ist Asus auch bekannt und es gibt sogar von MS einen automatischen FIX, der bei mir nicht Funktioniert. Wenn der Support von Asus nichts bringt, schicke ich das Ding zurück. Ich hatte noch nie solche Probleme mit einem DVD Laufwerk.

Uniquement parce qu'il est pas cher.

PARMAIN Cyril, Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: C'est un graveur qui semble bien faire son travail mais pourquoi il fait autant de bruit. Même mon vieux lite-on qui à 7 ans est moins bruyant. Encore heureux que j'utilise de moins en moins ce genre de lecteur et de graveur en faveur des disques durs USB et des lecteurs virtuels. Bon c'était l'un des moins cher et en stock.

Trop bruyant

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: Cela faisait longtemps que je n'avait pas changer de lecteur DVD et il se trouve que celui ci fait encore plus de bruit que mon lecteur précéent qui date de 10 ans ! Le bruit est vraiment insupportable, on a l'impression que le PC va décoller !
