4 out of 5 eggsRebate scam

Pros: Burner works great , never a problem dealing with Newegg-The Best, but beware of mail-in rebate, I received a email from ASUS rebate center and they informed me of never receiving my mail-in.

Cons: Mail-in rebate.

Other Thoughts: Hi, I mailed everything out to you, i have read many a review on newegg of customers not getting rebates . instead of requiring mail-in rebate consider email-in rebate. I took pictures of the packaging box with the bar code ( i cut out) you required along with forms you requested. If I don't receive my rebate I will never again purchase another ASUS product and surely never deal with mail-in rebate scams.

2 out of 5 eggsDrive expired same time the warranty did

Pros: The drive is solid, when it works. It read blu ray, and everything below it.

Cons: Three days after the warranty expired, so did the drive. It's a power issue, tested on multiple computers and multiple operating systems. The tray won't even come out. Don't buy this drive it you want it to last longer then a year.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat BD burner. Burn DB-RE disc over and over

Pros: Price is great with $40 rebate. I keep burning my DB-RE X2 disc over and over with no problem. I recommend free ImgBurn software. Imgburn works great burning DL BD (50GB), DB-RE 25GB, and regular BD using this ASUS burner. I tried power2go9 and it does not burn BD-RE correctly.

Cons: It does not burn or read BDXL (128GB) like the LG WH16NS40.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA on Blue Ray

Pros: None

Cons: This drive reads DVD slower than my old 4x BR drive, and after trying with 3 different discs, I finally realize it does not read BR discs - and this is right after I installed the drive.

What a waste time. And now Newegg is charging me to ship back a defective item - waste of money as well.

Other Thoughts: I wish I read the reviews first - would have never bought it.

1 out of 5 eggsBlu-Ray Player

Pros: None

Cons: I ordered this Blu Ray player in June of 2013. Since that time it has been returned to Asus 7 times. Every time they returned the drive it did not play Blu-Ray's. I have spent shipping every time to send back as they refused to pay for the return in a normal UPS FED-EX way. I just got an email today from them telling me that it is out of warranty and they want $90 to repair it. Humm, well they sent it back last time not working and now they want me to pay to have it repaired, tells me they admit sending a bad player. It has been going back every time, never ever one time did I even get to use the drive. Has never played a bluray.

Other Thoughts: I am going to notify NewEgg about this issue if they even do anything. Also I am going to file a complaint with the DA of the State where the player has been being returned. Any other help in resolving this issue will be appreciated. I am over $500 out of pocket expense for this drive going to Customer every time it came back and messed up the computer so bad the first time because of trying all the different multimedia programs out there that I could get..

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: .

Cons: .

Other Thoughts: The Asus BW-12B1ST is a rebadged LG drive with 4MB Cache, or re-branded LiteOn iHBS112-2 if it's 8MB cache.

Since this one come with 4MB Cache, it's rebadged LG brand.

Pros: OK while it is working.

Cons: very poor tech support.
