Disappointed in status of blu-ray

Brian B., Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Pros: Slim and it is transportable. The speed of connection was great.
  • Cons: I thought with the status of blu-ray would mean I was able to play bu-rays. This is not so. Maybe there are some other purposes for blu-ray discs, but I don't have any at this time.

Awesome

Matthew H., Newegg
15 January 2012
  • Summary: Looks pretty good
  • Pros: This thing works great as long as you have the right software. Does not work with Windows 7 starter and WMP. Install VLC media player and it works wonders. Still got to test it with bluray though (vlc states it can play bluray).
  • Cons: Had to seek out the software, took some time

Eat Crow

Anonymous, Newegg
14 January 2012
  • Summary: Newegg is always my first choice vendor.
  • Pros: In case my complaint about the rebate gets posted, I called again and talked to a very nice lady who was professional and knowledgeable. She handled the re-submission without a hitch.
  • Cons: I admit it was my error for using the wrong form originally. Thumbs up for the lady who handled this and thanks to the rebate people who stood behind it.

Rebate Denied

Robert G., Newegg
13 January 2012
  • Pros: The drive works as represented, although beware that it does not include the software necessary to play Blu-Ray movies.
  • Cons: Like others here, I bought this player because it was on sale AND had a $30 rebate. ASUS just denied my rebate claim saying "Item for which you are applying does not belong to offer ASU-10566" when I know for a fact it does and submitted all of the required documentation. For the $30 I'm owed, I'...

It works, but not worth the hassle

Manav M., Newegg
9 January 2012
  • Pros: Player seems to work okay.
  • Cons: I bought this player because it had a rebate. ASUS just denied my rebate claim saying the barcode is not valid for rebate. I don't know if this is the fault of Newegg or ASUS, but it is very frustrating. Now I'll have to spend time on the phone with both to figure out what went wrong. Not worth t...

  • Pros: Great drive. Works well and reads quickly for a portable drive.
  • Cons: ASUS rebate problem that has since been solved after many back and forth e-mails with the rebate handler. Does not work as a boot drive for an OS install. I had to copy my Windows installer onto a thumb drive to install on an Acer laptop. I suppose this is more an issue with Blu-ray and Windows 7...

Worth the price after mail in rebate not at full price (after rebate declined).

Stephen D., Newegg
23 December 2011
  • Pros: Does what I need it to do. Quiet and Small. Good accessory to add blu ray playback to a PC or Laptop.
  • Cons: No cons with the drive itself. Purchased it at a cost of $XX with a $XX ASUS/Newegg MIR. This was a savings of approximatly 55% off of MSRP. The rebate was declined because Newegg sent me a drive with a UPC that did not match the rebate. I did not want it at the original price point but now I am ...

No ASUS Rebate

Anthony J., Newegg
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I will correct the star rating when I receive my rebate money. Otherwise I would list this as a 4-star device.
  • Pros: Great drive. Works well and reads quickly for a portable drive.
  • Cons: ASUS rebate was not accepted and I am currently going through the motions to get the issue resolved. The rebate handler has no record of this item being eligible for the rebate that Newegg listed when I bought in November.

Beware ASUS rebates

Anonymous, Newegg
17 December 2011
  • Pros: Drive works most of the time, relatively small. That's about it.
  • Cons: Drive sporadically cannot be read or get USB device unrecognized on most of my laptops, even using Y charging cable or USB 3 ports to ensure good power. Moreover I filled out my rebate perfectly and just checked it against Newegg site and ASUS' rebate hander declined it, which will force me to sp...
