Summary: I got this to use to update an older computer with a new motherboard. Installed it without a hitch. Works great with Windows 10. It's fast enough for anything I need to burn and you can't beat the price.
Excerpt: Wanted a standard DVD drive to install software from. This came in very simple OEM packaging. Easy to install and worked from the start. Includes ASUS DVD software but have not installed it yet.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: It's a DVD drive. Almost no software goes through this thing anymore. It's there for when a teacher has software they distribute through DVDs.If you got some PS2 games lying around, this can come in handy. Maybe you don't have a USB boot drive anymore so you have to make a DVD.
Summary: This is an excellent device for the money. I researched the reviews and this model had the highest rating. I have purchase this ASUS modle for other builds. It seems to be reliable. With quality media the burns are error free everytime.
