5 out of 5 eggsHappy

Pros: - Burns movies with ImgBurn and Nero.
- No dual layer issues with ImgBurn
- Quick
- Inexpensive
- Quiet
- ASUS rebate arrived on time

Cons: - None at this price

Other Thoughts: - I have has a few issues with dual layer DVDs burned with NERO 11 Burning ROM. However, the same movies burned with ImgBurn pay just fine. Which leads me to believe it is not a hardware issue but rather software issue.
- I have not tried to do anything extreme with this drive. I burn single layer BD disks and single and double layer DVDs. For such tasks this drive is excellent

1 out of 5 eggsNot a long-term Blu-Ray burmer

Pros: Lasted until around the time the warranty was up.

Cons: Lasted about 12 months before the blu-ray burner burned out. It still burns regular DVD's fine, but will no longer burn blu-ray.

Other Thoughts: There was a progressive deterioration in the burner's ability to burn blu-ray disks. It went from failing on some, to failing on most, to failing on all. It totally failed around the time the warranty was over, maybe a little beyond that time. I tried using disks from 3 different manufacturers, but it didn't make a difference. Basically, I spent 80 bucks on a regular DVD burner.

I have always preferred ASUS optical drives when I buy them, but buying this blu-ray burner was a huge mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes everything you need!

Pros: Does everything I ask of it, works really well with handbrake.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I went to this because of other reviews that said it was good for movies and that on average the life expectancy is good.

4 out of 5 eggsBurns 25GBs BD-Rs in 10 minutes

Pros: Easy to install, burns BR-Ds (25GBs), DVD-R DLs (8GBs) in 10 minutes or less.

Cons: None to speak of yet

Other Thoughts: The only software this comes with is Cyberlink's Power2go 8, but it works well if you can get WinDVD 11 or better. I primarily got this to get huge files and movies and off my computer and it works far better than I was even expecting. Pretty great deal and it came with a $20 rebate at the time of purchase. Not sure how you can go wrong with this.
