1 out of 5 eggsproblematic, at best

This review is from: ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

Pros: Came as described, installed easily (win7 pro 64bit).

Cons: Does not write DL-dvds (tried 3 brands of DVDs and two sets of SATA cables: exchanged SATA cables with my 3y old drive still installed in the same computer: old drive works great with either cable and with the same disks, this one does not; have tried both Nero and ImgBurn) I have 18 failed attempts in 18 different burns, I already spent 50% of the drive's price on wasted dvd-media. After multiple tests (cables, brands of disks, software), I am convinced it's a problem with the drive, because it also refuses to read properly DL DVDs (e.g. stalls and stutters on commercial DVD movies; has problems reading the DVD with the ASUS drivers that came with it; completely refuses to read the windows DVD). It does not seem to like recordable CDs either (although I have only tried burning 2 of those). Interestingly my old DVD-burner in the same computer (still working fine, is an old ASUS).

Other Thoughts: Advise: Just pass on the low price, spend a few more $ and get a reliable burner.
Comment: It seems that the "new" variants (green) of these drive are substantially inferior to the "old" ones with the same model, newegg should separate the reviews for these two, I got tricked into buying this drive by old reviews that were 5-eggs but, as I now realize, were for a different burner.

1 out of 5 eggsDVD Burner with no license to use there software.

This review is from: ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

Pros: Use to be a quality company. I would spend 2,000.00 to 5,000.00 dollars monthly on ASUS Motherboards, Video Cards , DVD Burners. Now I cant go a year without having to replace a dead DVD,Board or Card..

Cons: Quality is gone down hill. Use to buy 100+ of these every 2-3 months because they where a great product with a licensed software. A couple weeks ago I ordered about 12 of them and installed them in custom built machines for customers and I found out that the software that came with it (E-Green and Power 2 Go) needs a license in order to work.. Asus states it's on the product or invoice or in the shipping container..Newegg states have to go to ASUS to get it or better yet they don't know..But I will say at least they try to get a answer for you....Well I think I can do better than that and go to Lite-on or LG which gives you the license with there drives.

Other Thoughts: That is the problem with these companies selling in the USA. They don't care about the quality of there product or if Quality Control has been preformed..Really cant wait till Trump gets in office we will finally start having quality style Retailers, Companies and Products and American jobs back into the USA that we can count on and not have to worry about speaking to robotic answering systems..
