  • Summary: When I try to play DVD movies on this drive, the movies freeze and the video is stop and go. I had this problem on my other dvd drive and it was fixed by updating the firmware. But because this is an OEM drive ASUS's firmware updater doesn't recognize the drive as an ASUS drive.

  • Summary: The DVD drive works well with good write speeds and very QUIET. Easy to install with no problems or difficulties. Power DVD refused to play certain DVDs until I upgraded the NVIDIA driver for my G-Force FX-5200 because of Macrovision protections.

  • Summary: Of course New Egg and FedEx had it here in 2 days... I was worried that my idea of a quiet drive would be different than others, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that I couldn't hear this drive spinning over my case fans or hard drive. Very happy, highly recommended.
