  • newegg E-Green The innovative drive E-Green Engine technology features an E-Green Mode that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to help conserve energy - helping the environment by decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing the depletion of trees.
  • newegg E-Hammer E-Hammer allows you to permanently delete the data on writable disc (CD-R and DVD-R) formats.

1 out of 5 eggsShattered

Pros: Loved this drive. Worked great.

Cons: But it shattered a cd in it. not sure of the cause. the drive was not in use when it happened. So cause is unknown. When researching this on line, Asus was the only brand mentioned by name. So I truly doubt that this is the only brand that this has happened to. It was a yr old.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: This is the third one of the same (or very similar) product that went bad before burning the first 50 pack of DVDs (within 1 year). All went bad the same way. The stop in the middle of burning and become completely unresponsive - can't even get the disk without a paper clip. Then they work again for a few more disks and then slowly get worse and worse. Not worth paying the postage to sent it in for a warranty claim.

Other Thoughts: Spent a few bucks more and buy something better. I used to love Asus products but their cheap DVD drives are garbage. Definitely not for people who burn lot's of CDs and DVDs.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A very inexpensive dvd burner with very fast read and write speeds for a wide variety of dvds.

Cons: Breaks rather quickly.

Other Thoughts: I've gone through 2 of these drives so far (one was replaced through RMA). The first one died 2 weeks after installation, and the second one died little after a month so I couldn't get it replaced (nor do I really want to). I was rather surprised because I usually associate ASUS products with quality (I have a 23in ASUS monitor that is beautiful). These drives may be good for someone who only uses his or her dvd drive once in a while, but for others like me who work in industries that require a burner used almost daily this product cannot handle that kind of use.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

Pros: Read a few dvds. Successfully burned 1 dvd (single layer).

Cons: Failed to burn any dvds after the first one. Tried single layer and dual layer. Gets about 1/50th of the data written before an error occurs.

Other Thoughts: Typical asus junk. Works for a very short time and then fails. Was willing to take a chance on something this cheap. Bought it because it was the first one on the list with a recent version of Nero. Should have kept looking. Based on past nightmare experiences with asus customer service I will be throwing this in the garbage and purchasing any other brand on the market.
