User Review

Varroa, NCIX.com
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to use with a intel NUC as part of my HTPC. It does what a player/burner should but the specs listed PowerDVD 10 as being included (and it is not). Good thing I have AnyDVD and VLC or this would not be able to play Blurays. Also it is a bit loud.
  • Pros: decent quality, vertical stand
  • Cons: Does not come with PowerDVD 10, loud

Works Perfectly

Ash, B&H Photo
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I needed an external optical drive, so I thought this would be a good buy. It definitely is and it works perfectly. I have an iMac, so I thought I needed to go through a long setup process, but all I had to do was plug in the USB cable connecting the Asus to the iMac and open my DVD player. For some reason the directions that came with the Asus made it seem a lot more complicated than it actually was to set up.
  • Pros: Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections

Descent, but they messed up the region

Daniel B., Newegg
24 May 2013
  • Summary: I did an RMA, but tech support said nothing was wrong and sent it back. I had to go into the drive and set the region to #2. Then, back to region #1 and it worked.
  • Pros: Sleek design.
  • Cons: As another reviewer noticed, it comes with a messed up region out of the box. Initially, it wouldn't play any DVDs!
