Summary: The BD-rom drive in my ASUS G74SX stopped reading discs in the past year, so I finally replaced it with this. Totally painless to install, no drivers to worry about or anything. The one caveat is it was set to the wrong region, so I had to change that.

Summary: Installed in my ASUS G75 laptop with no issue. Just gotta take the mounting bracket off the old drive and swap the bezels. Matched the part number from ASUS' parts site to this one, and it's exactly what I wanted. I wish it came with playback software, but hey, at this price it's a steal!
Summary: Used it to replace the DVD drive that came with my aging HP laptop (together with an SSD and memory upgrade, my laptop should do me fine for another 2 years!). Easy to install, worked the first time with the only fiddling required on the bezel.
Summary: Bought it to replace a dead blu ray player in laptop. Mine came with a black flat bezel. I took it off since I had to put the laptop's bezel on. I just plugged it in and the laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) recognized the drive without any download.

Summary: Purchased this for use in a Toshiba Qosmio X875-7190 laptop B00AY1FGYK This was simple! I wanted to have Blu-ray in the above laptop. Toshiba refused to work with me so I went with AMAZON! I replaced the original drive with this one also from amazon.
Summary: I'm very happy with the Blu-ray burner and it works perfectly. It was easy to install into my ASUS notebook, G74SX-BBK7. The original faceplate did transfer to the new burner without any problems.
Summary: Had to replace the DVD drive on an ASUS g75VW. This did the trick. You must remove the bezel and the back bracket from the old drive and place it on this drive. Took 3 minutes. Be very careful taking off the old bezel.
Summary: This was the cheapest option that I could find to upgrading my laptop. I have an Asus G73SJ and this drive fit perfect. I had to buy the software (Nero 12) to watch the Blu-rays and I have a 3D monitor on the way so hopefully it will work!
