Works Great 10/6/2018 12:32:08 PM

Pros: I use this every now and then usually when traveling to watch Blu-ray’s using a MacBook Pro laptop. I’ve had it 2.5 years now and it still works great. Never had any issues with it, but I’ve also never tried to burn a Blu-ray either. Fits my needs perfectly and still happy with it.

Cons: None

Works great! 12/31/2017 1:02:00 PM

Pros: Works. Plug and play. I've used this on an Asus Ultrabook and my custom built desktop. I was anxious because of reviews on various sites. But works fine I had no issues. Both of my computers are widows 10. However, I did not play any Blu rays videos. I just use this read Blu Ray discs.

Cons: Glossy and finger print magnet.

Overall Review: I use this product to rip Blu Ray discs. I don't play videos. So for this purpose works great. Didn't need to install anything and works fine on main USB port. Didn't need to use both USB heads on the y cable. I only used USB 3 ports.

Worked at first, now it doesn't. Piece of junk. 12/27/2017 9:35:45 AM

Pros: - was able to play some discs at first

Cons: - stopped working after 1 year (I tried plugging it into each and every USB port I have on my desktop, several USB 3 ports, one USB 3.1 port etc.)
- now it's a heavy paperweight
- don't buy and waste your money

Overall Review: - definitely don't buy this junk

Works well so far with PC with win7, win10 10/12/2017 6:12:04 AM

Pros: it works as advertised. I mainly use this as a way to back up my acquired media and, on occasion, use it to watch both blu-ray and dvds.

Cons: I guess I wish it is USB 3.0 and Knock on wood, it hasn't failed yet.

Overall Review: Be aware of ASUS's mail-in rebate scheme. So far, I have bought this and 2 other equipment from ASUS based on the MIR, there hasn't been a time that they would send the rebate check/card within the time they stated. In all instances, I have to call them to make them send the check/card.
