Not the usual ASUS quality

Sean B., Newegg
15 December 2015
  • Summary: My Y cable didn't work out of the box, but I was able to use one from an external hard drive. As for the drive itself... it looks nice, but I am having some serious problems with it not reading discs reliably. It reads some BDs and some DVDs, but not others.
  • Pros: Aesthetics and the ASUS brand
  • Cons: Short Y cable

Works

Raymond S., Newegg
26 May 2015
  • Summary: I don't have enough USB on one of my newer laptop so it ruined a few blank DVDs while making backup. It is my fault not following the instruction so no egg taken.
  • Pros: Plug and play. Bootable to my ThinkPad X220 tablet.
  • Cons: Requires both USB to be plug in to write properly.

Junk...

Paul M., Newegg
6 April 2015
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: It's a piece of junk. I bought this primarily to read blurays. Now that I need it to read a DVD it won't... just keeps booping. Not recognizing DVD's of any sort... not DVD movies, not DVD plus or minus R's doubleU tee eeF ... Sorry, it's a hunk of junk.

An apology to ASUS and a fix for a drive that was no longer being recognized by windows that worked for me and hopefully you.

J. Morbit "music lover", Amazon
5 April 2015
  • Summary: Like many other reviewers here I was initially very frustrated with this drive. It worked fine for a few months, reading my Blu-ray movies and burning Audio CDs and Data DVDs and when I tried to burn a Blu-Ray data disc it would not recognize the disc, I tired 3 types and none worked, then the drive...

Just needs USB 3.0

Jordan W., Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: I really like this portable external blu-ray reader/writer. It runs off of USB power, very thin profile and quick read speed (for an external device). The only thing that I wish it had was USB 3.0 capability.

Everything looked like it went though

Chaos Rex, Amazon
4 March 2015
  • Summary: I used this drive a few times with a MacBook Air. I'm not sure I ever watched a full movie with it but the first few times I used it it worked. Then it sat around for a few months untouched. I pulled it out to use it and...I could no longer read any discs with it.
