5 out of 5 eggsReally?

Pros: It arrived in one piece. No details till build start.

Cons: No Software, saw that coming. No box or paperwork, this should have at least come with something to say it's new and has xxxx days to be RMA or not through ASUS.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Unknown. It will play DVD's and read CD's but it will not play a Blue Ray DVD. It is suppose to be a plug and play unit according to ASUS support.

Cons: Will not play Blue Ray DVD's and that was the purpose of the purchase.

Other Thoughts: I tried it with Windows Media Player and Corel WinDVD Pro 11 software. Both would not accept the Blue Ray.

ASUS tech support said to return the optical drive.

I cannot find any drivers or software that will fix the problem although it sounds like a software issue. Any suggestions?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: This has been my optical drive since 2012. I've used it for many Blu-ray movies, downloading music to iTunes from CD's, and even writing OS ISO and music playlists onto disks. Every time I've used it, it's worked flawlessly.

Cons: Sometimes this drive randomly opens when I boot up my system, and usually refuses to stay closed until I have closed it a few times consecutively. I suspect it's faulty due to another piece of hardware in my computer, so no real complaint about this product here.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend it, built to last!

2 out of 5 eggsSoftware not included

Pros: hardware works as expected and does what it needs to. A good purchase for the price

Cons: software that is included does not support bluray disks. You have to find and install additional software in order to make use of watching any blu ray disks.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a decent purchase but keep in mind that you will need some software that is able to read and play the bluray.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not very well, and extremely loud

Pros: Works okay for an optical drive

Cons: Extremely loud and slow, would not recommend.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my new HTPC, knowing that I would like to play blurays on it, and once I heard how loud it was, I didn't even bother, I would not recommend this drive if noise level is important to you, because this drive is the loudest one I've ever owned.
