User Review

raminolta, NCIX.com

  • Summary: Only after I purchased it, I learned it does not include a software for blu-ray playback. In the description, it talks about 3d support, 2d to 3d conversion and 'Magic Cinema' 1080p upscaling all indications of a software which can play blu-ray disks. So its promotion text is in a sense misleading. I haven't tried the burning/writing features yet so can't comment on that now.
  • Pros: Light and portable. Burns and writes to blu-ray and dvd disks.
  • Cons: It does not come with a blu-ray player software.

Good drive, bad enclosure

Eric B., Newegg
26 November 2013
  • Summary: Also, the drive and enclosure consume considerably more power than two USB ports can reasonably provide. The drive is rated at 1.6A @ 5v, I'd guess that the USB interface probably requires another .2A, giving a total of 1.8A. The labeling on the enclosure lists 2A, which should be a worst case requirement. The USB 2.0 spec states that a port can provide up to 500mA, so from two ports you should only be able to get 1A, leaving you at least .8A short.
  • Pros: The drive itself is fine, but you'll be best served removing it from the included USB enclosure. I used it to replace a DVD-RW in a SSF Dell desktop. Works great. The drive is manufactured by Panasonic. Its front panel is a non-standard size (perhaps 1-2mm larger than normal), but uses the normal clip based mount so it can be swapped. On rebate the drive was ~42, make it about half what a bulk packed slim BDRW would cost.
  • Cons: The USB chipset is in the enclosure is terrible. I wager many of the issues other purchasers have had are the result of it.

View, Burn, and Be careful

Canon man, B&H Photo
27 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The drive looks nice and comes with a stand, but the usb port on the drive itself is hard to plug into sometimes. The drive views and burns disk with ease. But beware that you have the codecs install for dvd and Blu-ray if you want to watch movies. Also, not all laptop displays are rated for Blu-ray even if stated as HD Display.
  • Pros: Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Difficult To Install

Blu-Ray Made Easy

jmartin18rdb, B&H Photo
20 August 2013
  • Excerpt: On deadline for an award submission I discovered that my documentary had to be delivered on Blu-ray. I didn't have time to research or shop. I feel very fortunate to have had a perfect experience with this burner. Other than the fact that my iMac did not immediately detect the device (and after a Final Cut reload, iMac restart and a cold boot failed) I used Disk Utility where the drive appeared with a drop-and-drag option.
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet

Smooth Performer. Great Price point

  • Summary: Works well. Platform (holder) is not well thought out, as it makes disk-handling awkward. Included software can create virtual drives, which is handy for testing .iso files.

Great When It Works

Daniel B., Newegg
22 May 2013
  • Summary: Thanks to the other reviewer, here is the original text:
  • Pros: Small, ASUS brand, I like the square hole, you can put it on your hip and flip it up like a six-shooter
  • Cons: Stinkin' Windows 7 and 8, both OS' I was trying to use this on, lost the device in the OS, where the BIOS saw it just fine. I just looked at previous reviewer's tips, and presto it started working again in these OS'. Beware that any future windows updates may lose the device again, had that happen on one of my Windows 8 machines.
