5 out of 5 eggsWhat it says it is

Pros: Small, portable, and strait to the point. Works well and is what it was expected to be with out any high expectations.

Cons: Being that it is blu-ray player, It should have come with a actual blu-ray player software.

Other Thoughts: It's worth what I paid, and as simple as using VLC for a media player and done.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat hardware, but needs updated software

Pros: Fast, stylish and pretty quiet. I bought this to use with my new laptop, which doesn't have an optical drive, and so far, the performance of the drive itself has been outstanding. I've been able to read and burn CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs efficiently without any problems.

Cons: The software included with the drive does not include an updated Blu-Ray player software. Mine included CyberLink PowerDVD 9, which can play some Blu-Ray movies, but not all. The newer Blu-Ray Discs (i.e. those released from 2013 on) use a newer encryption system that PowerDVD 9 doesn't support. You'll need to get player software that's more up-to-date to play newer blu-ray movies, and that software can be expensive. For DVDs and CDs, it's been fine, it just needs new software for Blu-Rays.

1 out of 5 eggsSlags Disks

Pros: It works sometimes

Cons: Just a terrible drive. Slags disks left and right, how can they release such buggy hardware?

Other Thoughts: I stopped buying Asus motherboards after building nothing but, now I'll never buy any hardware from them. What happened to their once great company?

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible, don't buy.

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: None of the machines I tried it on would recognize the drive at all.

Other Thoughts: Tried it on a few Windows 7 machines (32 bit & 64 bit) and none of them would recognize this drive at all. Tried restarting with the drive connected, refreshing device manager, changing BIOS options, etc. The drive got power and would open but would never show up in device manager on any computer. Also I bought the drive when it was on sale on a business trip, and didn't get home to try it out until well after 30 days past the invoice date so I guess I'm stuck with a $67 paper weight and a few bluray movies I can't watch. Fantastic!

5 out of 5 eggsReally Fast Delivery

Pros: received next day on free shipping (really - ordered Sunday, arrived Monday!!)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: plays CD's & DVD's, bought it to play Blu-Ray at 1080p, but don't have any yet (guess I'll have to rent one to try it out). Will review again later if I have any problems.

2 out of 5 eggsWAIT FOR IT! - Won't reliably read Blu-ray commerical discs

Pros: Compact, stylish

Cons: Does not reliably read many commercial Blu-rays, very short USB cable.

Other Thoughts: On my second unit which proves as unreliable as the first. About seventeen minutes into a film, the drive cannot read many discs. Picture freezes while you listen to read mechanism sound like it trying to locate something on the disc. After about 5 mins of looking at a freeze frame, if you're patient enough - film may resume.

I bought this drive to enjoy Blu-rays on my laptop. Hooked up many different ways including using a powered USB hub and a longer USB cord to the laptop, so I could put the drive on my nightstand. Software is PowerDVD 12.

First drive was replaced by ASUS with a 90 day warranty replacing the original 1 year! Cost of shipping unit back is almost equal to what I paid. VERY FRUSTRATING when you want to enjoy a film... WAIT FOR IT, WAIT FOR IT, WAIT FOR IT.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please try uninstalling and then reinstalling the optical drive and the Blu-ray application. Ensure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for the Blu-ray movies to work. If you’d like to discuss this topic with me further, please email me at cl-celeste@asus.com.

Sincerely,
Celeste

4 out of 5 eggsDescent, but they messed up the region

Pros: Sleek design.
Can be upright or flat.
Quiet.

Cons: As another reviewer noticed, it comes with a messed up region out of the box. Initially, it wouldn't play any DVDs!
I did an RMA, but tech support said nothing was wrong and sent it back. I had to go into the drive and set the region to #2. Then, back to region #1 and it worked.
Tech support was worthless - thanks to the other reviewer for giving me the idea about switching regions!

Other Thoughts: The drive is powered by USB (2-ports). This is a PRO and a CON. It's nice to have fewer cables, but it takes up two ports and the documentation says you can't use a USB hub (although I haven't tried)

1 out of 5 eggsnot recognized

Pros: small, with stand

Cons: not recognized by two comps, one with win 8.
required two usb connections, no separate power supply, i guess best for portability though ......

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Reads CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. Works well. Haven't burned anything yet. Just disc burning software comes with it, NOT blu-ray movie-playing software.

Cons: The drive would not play either DVD movies or Blu-ray movies at first. The Region was not set.

No Blu-ray movie-watching software comes with it. You'll have to provide that on your own.

Other Thoughts: Even though Windows 7 told me that the Region of the drive was set to 1 (North America), it was not really set. So if you're unable to play movies with this drive SET the Region to 1, even if Windows tells you it is already set to 1 (Device Manager, Drive Properties, DVD Region).

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive

Pros: So far this has been a great drive. I've played about a dozen Blu Ray movies without issue, as well as burned a few DVD's. Drive is very nice looking, well balanced (quiet), and feels very durable. I haven't noticed any lag through USB, which I've noticed with other branded external drives (admittedly, those were older products...close to when Blu Ray drives hit the market).

Cons: Included software is lacking and does not include playback for Blu Ray...I had planned on using different software anyway.
