1 out of 5 eggsTray not working

Pros: Blue LED works :). BOIS detected the unit.

Cons: Tray not working, (will not open) as a result - unable to use this drive for it's purpose. Can't be used even as a coffee cup holder (if You know the joke)

Other Thoughts: It is not just about the unit. It looks that ASUS cut it's expenses on quality check. As a result this it what happens - marked is flooded with products that don't pass the final factory tests and we as consumers have to do this work for them, I will explain - 1. Buying the product 2. Testing the product (in my case it didn't pass). 3. Returning the product to manufacture (or store). 4. Pray for mercy to get a good product - or money back. The RESULTS: I have to spend my time and money to do work for ASUS quality product test department.

2 out of 5 eggsBought for Blu-Ray...

Pros: Fast at ripping music

Cons: Doesn't write mp3 or audio cds at all. Doesn't read Blu-Rays even with third party software. It will play dvd and music, but thats it. Wasted money.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an OEM so of course it came with no software to play anything and there are no drivers to speak of on the Asus website. I put a BR in the drive and get nothing, I put a DVD in the drive and it shows right up. I figured i would have found a solution for this issue by now, but it seems i am not going to find one. Faulty device.

2 out of 5 eggsOK drive, wish I had purchased different brand

Pros: I'd say a 7/10 when working,decent picture and read speed

Cons: Stopped working soon after purchase, but only intermittently. After 9 months completely died. Was pretty noisy even when working. Led on front is way too bright blue and is an annoyance.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased so many other Asus products over the years, and have been happy with nearly all of them. I don't this is an overall indicator of Asus but this drive in my case was a dud. If I had it replaced and it worked flawlessly afterwards I would be happier.

2 out of 5 eggsSolid but ... .. .

Pros: Solid unit. Reads and writes very well.

Cons: Comes with no bluray software essentially turning this into just another R/W DVD drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSomewhat loud

Pros: Plays Blu Ray
Recognized Windows 8.1 immediately (if anyone was wondering)

Cons: Not the quietest computer part ever

Other Thoughts: Works great! Loads fast, no problems whatsoever. I do have to say that this is the loudest component in my HTPC when its running, but it doesn't really bother me since I didn't set out to build the quietest computer ever.

Also - you will need to buy blu ray software so don't throw a tantrum when you cant play your blu ray redbox as soon as you install it

2 out of 5 eggsStutters on most Blue-Rays

Pros: - Cheap
- Fast

Cons: - With the latest version of PowerDVD and Windows 8.1 it stutters on all but 1 BR I have played. It starts after about a half hour and then happens every 10min or so.
- ASUS site has no firmware updates

Other Thoughts: I rip every movie I own for my media server. This works fine for that. I have an older Samsung drive that I have swapped back to for playback from disk in my HTPC. It is much slower though, which is why I bought this one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install and does exactly what its supposed to do.

Cons: it wont play vinyl or 45's. Actually quite disappointed in that fact.

Other Thoughts: it plays DVD and CD no problem but you have to buy a Blu-Ray program to play blu-ray. I already knew that when I bought this so I was ready. Its a good player.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works perfectly. Decently priced. Asus rarely disappoints.

Cons: Would have liked some Blu Ray playing software included, but I understand why it wasn't. That software is pretty expensive on its own.
