5 out of 5 eggsSolid drive

Pros: Quick to install, no extra drivers, DVD burn speeds are good, and Blu Ray ripping speeds are fantastic.

After a week of use I haven't noticed much sound from this drive at all when reading or ripping blu rays. There's a slight whir from the DVD side, however it's still significantly quieter than my last few DVD-RW drives.

Cons: No issues so far.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned, this didn't come with any playback software. I'm okay with this as I preferred to use free libraries for playback and just use AnyDVD HD to decrypt the disks. If you want to be able to watch movies right away, spend the extra $50 and get the retail version of this drive, it'll save you quite a bit of money.

3 out of 5 eggsBig Moe

Pros: Works as advertised. Installation was pretty easy too. It is an OEM, it doesn't come with anything but the blu-ray player.

Cons: You will need a couple things extra to be able to watch the Blu-Ray movies.
1. AVI cable for the digital video transfer from your PC to the monitor.
2.The Blu-Ray player SOFTWARE. You'll need to buy this from somewhere and it aint cheap! Around $85 is what I found them to be. Microsoft Media Player wont work for Blu-Rays.

Other Thoughts: I got mine working with a free 30 trial software, the AVI wasn't to bad, only a few bucks. If I knew this prior to my purchase,
I might have just not got it, although watching blueray movies on my PC is kinda cool.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I Expected, And It Works Great

Pros: This is my first PC build, so I did general research when selecting components. I haven't tried burning any disks yet, but far as playing goes, it does fine.

Cons: Doesn't come with any mounting screws.

5 out of 5 eggsFast DVD/BD Reader

Pros: No Riplock
Rips Bluray and DVDs beautifully.
Great Price

Cons: No Bluray playback software included, but this was expected... so its not really a con.

Other Thoughts: My sole purpose in buying this drive was to quickly start converting my DVD/Bluray collection to MKVs via Handbrake, before my kids scratched/wrecked them all. Price and performance were the keys, and this drive delivered.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus again

Pros: Really nothing much to a CD/DVD/Blu ray review.
It works, looks nice in the case. Wasn't too expensive

Cons: A very sticky residue came all over the front face plate of drive. Looks like from some type of packaging from the manufacturer to new egg or something idk. It came in a bubble rap from news egg so not sure how it got on there.

Other Thoughts: Good product, would buy again

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet

Pros: Mostly quiet

Cons: OEM (as stated in product description no egg removal)

Other Thoughts: Be aware this is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) product which means that it comes with nothing but the drive. No instructions, no software, just the drive. You will need correct software to be able to watch bluray movies. I had issues when I first installed it and booted up my computer. For some reason my computer read it as a hard drive (I connected it correctly so I do not know why this was an issue) so I was unable to install my operating system. In case you run into this problem I raided all my drives together and then separated them back. After doing this is read as an optical drive, and I was able to continue on with no issues. I've had no issues with it scratching my discs.

5 out of 5 eggsGood BD-ROM Drive

Pros: Just works! Noise is about what I'd expect, probably quieter than the slim BD-ROM drive in my Asus laptop.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't pay for more than half a Ben Franklin for a BD-ROM drive when good BD-RW drives are coming to around 3/4 of a Ben as of May 2014. Be aware that you'll need the right software to play a Blu-Ray movie.
