4 out of 5 eggsFunctional & Noisy

Pros: Quiet if seated correctly. Loads CD's and DVD's quickly.

Cons: Make sure it's seated correctly inside the tower, otherwise it's noisy.

Other Thoughts: It's been just over one year since I installed this optical drive into what was a new PC build. I noticed many complaints about how this optical drive was noisy, but otherwise a good buy. After purchasing it, I too observed the moderately high noise level upon starting the PC.

Recently, I began experiencing problems with my headphone and mic; I attributed it to, what I believed was my front facing audio jacks. Without thinking of the obvious (trying a new headset), I removed the tower's case and attempted to remove the optical drive in order to get to my front facing audio jacks.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to remove the optical drive, but whatever I did cause it to seat better inside the tower and now it's very quiet and still works perfectly.

Side Note: My headset problem turned out to be directly caused by a short in the headset - the Hyper X Cloud (original). There's a two-year warranty with the headset, but they require the customer to pay for shipping to their warranty department which is pretty awful.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product, strange color.

Pros: it works with every disc I've put in it so far, its compatible with windows 8 and even has a small disc tray. I haven't had a problem with it at all from instillation to clean install of windows 8. Havent had a chance to burn a disc with it yet. will update when i do.

Cons: the color was a faded black. i would have liked it to be a darker black to match my case but for the price its not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: wasn't damaged or scratched at all. asus in my opinion makes good products, so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Works well, runs, has lasted for about a year and a half. Black matte finish matches my case.

Cons: Pretty noisy, even for a disc drive. I haven't had to use it much so I can't vouch for it's long term reliability, but it's cheap, looks good, and does what it needs to do. Really can't complain. I'd give 5 eggs if it were a touch quieter, but really the only way to do that would be insulating the thing. But really, we really shouldn't be giving 5 eggs for products that aren't truly innovative, so there we go.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus has a nice drive here.

Pros: I like the fact (even if I don't use it yet) that this drive has a power saving "Eco" feature. Something I have not seen on other drives. Seems like a solid drive and it burns single and dual layer discs just fine. Virtually no vibration, so it has good auto balancing of discs. It also has advanced data encryption features which is good for those wishing for greater security.

Cons: There is virtually nothing I don't like about the drive so far. Even the burning software that comes with it is decent.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value, compatible with windows 8.1

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Had no problems installing Windows 8.1 with it. Speeds are reasonable for what it would take to reliably write onto DVD/CD-ROM's.

Cons: None so far. Haven't tested its writing ability yet, will update once I have.

Other Thoughts: Glad I went with this model, has proven to be reliable thus far.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable at best...

Pros: It powers up, loads and ejects and the activity light works. Fits in the drive bay like it should, and lines up good with front bezel.

Cons: No matter what disk I try to install, it fails to read past the 75% mark on the disks. This holds true with every type of media I put into the drive, retail CD/DVD or burnt it makes no difference. To confirm - tested the "failed disks" on a LG drive and had no issues with reading, installing or burning the same media that fails in this drive.

Other Thoughts: Have attempted to contact manufacture about issue but can not find an active phone number for US based support. Have sent email to the support center and as of today (5 days) nothing has been received back. This is the fourth ASUS branded product that has failed to work properly for me in the last 90 days.

Will be looking at different suppliers for peripherals from this point forward.
