I got what I ordered.
very good product
Installed into my Asus G752VL Laptop. Burns great, rips 4K movies great. All around wonderful bluray drive.
Writes and reads all media I have used in it Writes very fast error free even with a DVD blank that was 11 years old wrote perfectly The packaging it was sent in kept the drive safe from damage surprisingly it was delivered on a Sunday very impressed for weekend delivery at no additional cost!!
Worked right out of the box without issues. It's usually really quiet too.
Good functionality, especially at this price point.
It just works. Reads and burns CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray discs (I'm using Linux Mint 20). Disc type information is molded into the bezel rather than being painted on giving the drive a more elegant appearance (one of the major reasons I chose it).
I've used it heavily for a few weeks and it works great. Comes with a variety of useful software.
Everything works smoothly. M-Discs burn without any issues. Especially like the front switch.
THIS drive, unlike my ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG WH16NS60 drives, actually reads ALL of my discs. I am able to watch 4K discs on this without issue, even discs that would often refuse to run on my other drives. Pioneer has NAILED the firmware and drive performance of this drive. It is Apple-like in its "it just works" methodology. I couldn't care less about the included software, and think it is rather ridiculous that other reviewers are dinging this drive for that. The pack-in software is a bonus. Most professionals are going to want to use professional-grade software anyway. The HARDWARE of this drive works perfectly, and I am insanely happy with it. I am ordering more to keep in the closet as backups in case they ever discontinue this drive. I have been searching for YEARS for a drive which will work on an ATX case and play 4K discs without issue. Finally found it!
