3 out of 5 eggsWork's fine but doesn't officially support Windows 10?

This review is from: ASUS DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS

Pros: I just finished building a Skylake system including this drive in the the build. I used it to do a clean install of Windows 10 from a DvD and it worked fine during and after the installation.

Cons: The disappointing news is this drive doesn't officially support Windows 10, nor does its software or drivers. Considering Windows 10 has been out for over 6 months a company like Asus should have updated drivers and software to support it by now. That is the main reason I gave the drive 3 instead of 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: I only built the rig 3 days ago and so far the the drive works fine with the drivers that come with Windows 10. I'd like to see Asus get ont he ball and officially support their product in Windows 10.

3 out of 5 eggsNot getting Windows 10 to see this unit.

This review is from: ASUS DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS

Pros: It's a nicely made unit, packaged well. Will hold off on anything until I get the unit to work.

Cons: Replaced a failed CD/DVD burner with this unit, also replaced the SATA cable at the same time. It powers up, but I can not get WIN 10 to see this unit. I've gone on to ASUS page and not found drivers specifically for WIN 10. I may have purchased a unit not compatible with WIN 10.

I will update this review after further investigation.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow and Quiet

This review is from: ASUS DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS

Pros: Very quiet, no vibration

Cons: Very slow reading a DVD averaging between 20 to 25 minutes as compared to the Sony Optiarc 5280S that I removed at half the time. If your looking for speed, this is not the drive. Might be good as a spare drive in case another one breaks but too slow for an everyday use drive.

3 out of 5 eggsSeems to work Ok, but.....

This review is from: ASUS DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS

Pros: Reads & Writes DVD-R's & CD-R's

Cons: Does not work with ASUS E-Green Utility; states 'No ASUS drive found' though it does show up in Windows Explorer.

Other Thoughts: Seems to work as it should, but the included software ASUS E-Green Utility does not 'see' or support this drive as it is supposedly designed to be. I would only recommend this burner if you do not care about this flawed feature but need a optical disc burner that does seem to work as an ordinary unit would. I contacted ASUS about this and they could not fix it or explain why it is happening. Not exactly as advertised. An A+ for Newegg, and a C for ASUS.
