5 out of 5 eggsquick reads

Pros: Great price
Good read speeds
Fast shipping

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use this drive for the sole purpose of backing up my blu rays onto my server for Plex. It reads faster than my old samsung, which it should considering it was an 8x reader. However, its quieter even with the higher read speed.

5 out of 5 eggsMet my needs as a blu-ray player

Pros: It was easy to install and had the standard mounting features. The button on the front works fine for opening and closing the tray, and the tray is the right size and shape for the job.

Cons: None that I have found. The button sticks out a bit and the tray feels a little cheap, but that's what you expect in general with these things.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this device for use as an optical drive in my HTPC. The read speed was fast enough I never ran into issues. If you're using this for media storage you may run into speed issues or not-- but it's definitely fast enough to read bluray.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS Quality, Great Price, No-Frills Drive

Pros: 2.5+ years without a single issue. Reads/writes media like a champ. BluRay playback is great when I can't or don't feel like watching on my TV. Great cost for the basics.

Cons: No BluRay software (as to be expected at this cost), so make sure you've got media playback software covered. I found a great sale on ArcSoft's TotalMedia Theatre 6, and haven't had any issues with play back from this drive.

Other Thoughts: Can't go wrong with ASUS products.
