1 out of 5 eggsAsus costomer service

Pros: Support DVD and Blu-ray disks

Cons: No Blu-Ray software included.
Functioned well in first 3 months, but the ejection button seemed very fragile.
After 3 and and a half months, my ejection button fell off its place. I was not able to open the disk compartment. I phoned to Asus to have it repaired while the DVD combo was still on the warranty. I was told that if there was misuse of the product, it would not be covered and had to pay for the repair. I did not want to pay for the expedition of the product to Asus and risk that my product would need repair on my expense.

3 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: when the package arrives theres nothing wrong with player its aesthetically pleasing, nice player, works, until you put a disk in.

Cons: you should pay attention to the words supports and compatible on the box because thats what it is, it doesn't come with any software to actually play the disks. you have to either pay to upgrade the software it does come with or find a third party media player it took me an hour to find one.

Other Thoughts: other than that it worked fine had no other problems, this is a decent player and if you pay the upgrade it actually comes with alot of awesome extras. just wish i had a choice

4 out of 5 eggsGood Little Unit

Pros: It is small, lightweight, and the disk suite has a program to help you write certain things to disk. Although it does not have a media player in the suite, you can use VLC player for free pretty easily.

Cons: I was under the impression it also could write Blu-Ray, but that is my mistake. So I want to leave this note so that no one else makes a quick decision.

Other Thoughts: Fast shipping

3 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 woes.

Pros: When I used it with my desktop and old laptop it was fast and reliable.

Cons: The problems arise however when USB 3.0 is involved. I tried it once on my desktops USB 3.0 ports, it didn't work on them, it worked on the 2.0 ports and didn't even think about it again until 3 weeks ago. At that time I got a new laptop from work that only has USB 3.0 ports and the device wouldn't work. So I started trying new drivers, different drivers, even troubleshooting in Windows. What windows says is the USB 2.0 that is built into the drive is known to have problems with 3.0.

Other Thoughts: So now I have a drive that won't work for the express reason I bought it, to use with my work laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsIt won't play BluRay

Pros: Asus brand -??

Cons: The device does not play bluray disc. Try a number of movies, but none. It does apparently write bluray format for data. I play DVD's so it works, just it doesn't play bluray movies, video, etc.

Other Thoughts: The webpage given to install the updates for the firmware, doesn't exist anymore (if ever did). Come on!

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work on VistaSP2, no BR software

Pros: - Sleek look
- able to mount vertically via stand

Cons: - Can't get to work with Vista SP2
- Blu-Ray playback software not included

Other Thoughts: This is a nice looking drive, but I can't get it to work in Vista SP2 (which is odd, because it worked with the initial Vista install until I installed SP2 - yes, I know Vista is old, but I'm using an old license to build a computer for a kid.) Another external BD drive I have of the same form factor works fine, and this does work in a windows 7 machine I have, so I know it's not the computer or that the drive is broken.

It also doesn't come with Blu-Ray playback software, even though the disk says "BD Suite" - very misleading.

A product like this shouldn't be this difficult to use out of the box. An external optical drive should be plug in, install provided software that allows use of everything the drive is capable of, go. I would not recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat it says it is

Pros: Small, portable, and strait to the point. Works well and is what it was expected to be with out any high expectations.

Cons: Being that it is blu-ray player, It should have come with a actual blu-ray player software.

Other Thoughts: It's worth what I paid, and as simple as using VLC for a media player and done.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat hardware, but needs updated software

Pros: Fast, stylish and pretty quiet. I bought this to use with my new laptop, which doesn't have an optical drive, and so far, the performance of the drive itself has been outstanding. I've been able to read and burn CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs efficiently without any problems.

Cons: The software included with the drive does not include an updated Blu-Ray player software. Mine included CyberLink PowerDVD 9, which can play some Blu-Ray movies, but not all. The newer Blu-Ray Discs (i.e. those released from 2013 on) use a newer encryption system that PowerDVD 9 doesn't support. You'll need to get player software that's more up-to-date to play newer blu-ray movies, and that software can be expensive. For DVDs and CDs, it's been fine, it just needs new software for Blu-Rays.
