1 out of 5 eggsDied in 4 months STAY AWAY did not honor warranty

Pros: It has good specs, so you get what you pay for if the drive survives

Cons: Bought this 11/18/2015 after hours of trying to get it to work with Windows 10 64bit Pro I had no issues until it just suddenly died 4 months later, as many report also. The tech support was completely unhelpful. After two weeks of generic pasted email responses that each took DAYS to even receive they finally offered an RMA for parts repair but were charging me shipping up AND back so I refused, since the drive was not worth the shipping. They also refused to send a new unit while the old was to be repaired, which meant I'd have been without optical functions for weeks. Typical options offered by other companies for the RMA process were denied, such as replacement with a different drive while they place a credit hold on your credit card and neither did they offer any expedited services, leaving me only with the option to send it in and wait WEEKS for them to likely send it back broken as we all know they will only take 5 minutes to test it after a 3 week wait then say it's fine and send it back broken.

Other Thoughts: Bought an LG Black Blu-ray Burner SATA WH16NS40 - OEM, will never buy ASUS ever again. People usually have decent things to say about ASUS but I think product quality and support is just so bad in general that people really just let themselves get walked over

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Small, seems to be reliable so far.

Cons: Rebates! I despise them. In a moment of weakness, I bought this, with a rebate. How I deplore the unnecessary aggression dealing with rebates cause for me. I vow never to buy a rebate-linked item that requires me to mail it in and will boycott an product company that deals in such practices, this after the hassle of my Asus motherboard rebate as well.

Other Thoughts: I'm taking an egg for the rebate hoops you have to jump through the sheer arrogance of stealing $2 to collect my $25(-$) rebate in under 3 months!

I will never buy a product with a rebate again and I will spend more money on the biggest online retailer if that's what it takes. The only way to stop this nonsense is to vote with my wallet.

5 out of 5 eggsWindows 10 Compatible

Pros: Speed, quiet and works with Windows 10

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: No idea why some say this is not working within Windows 10. I have had this drive since Windows 10 came out and not a single problem. Works great! Don't be mislead by 1 star reviews claiming this drive does not work with Windows 10.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible customer service response.

Pros: Nothing - won't answer their phone!

Cons: Nothing - won't answer their phone!

Other Thoughts: Saw so many negative reviews, I decided to call Asus to see which optical drives were certified to work with Windows-10 since none are listed as working with Windows-10, and they would never answer their support phone.

1 out of 5 eggsThe Grinch of Drives

Pros: None

Cons: Purchased ... has never worked correctly ... I put up with it because I watch most of my movies on my laptop ...

This drive will not play Blu Ray anything ... with cds and dvds will have to sometimes open and close the drive several times for it to realize that there is a disc inside and load it. When i burn photos or documents to disk they have errors and wont read on other computers.

I went to the Assus website and they dont list a downloadable driver for it ... I went to their technical assistance tab and the information they wanted would have required me to disassemble my computer to get the serial numbers off of all of the parts not just that it was 4 or 5 pages of questions ... the phone number went to an automated system ... BAD BAD BAD

On top of that ... coming back to the reviews inside of Newegg this product has a 42% 1 egg rating ... thats the majority of the raters ... why isnt this product noted somewhere as the majority your customers that have purchased this drive have not liked it and have had issues ... thats kinda a big deal Newegg ... but next to your rating for the product it says 33 5 egg rating ... lol doesnt mention that everyone else that has bought the drive has had problems with it ... and seeing how the rating system works it was probably assus or newegg emplyees that wrote the positive reviews if there are that many bad reviews on it ...

1 out of 5 eggsNon Functional

Pros: None

Cons: Since installation the drive has only read cds and dvds ... and that sparingly ... its hit or miss sometimes I have to open and close the drive a couple of times for it to read the dvds ... and these arent burnt in the garage dvds ... just normal movie dvds ... same goes for the music cds ...

I went to the assus website and they dont list a downloadable driver for it ... I went to their help tab and the list of things I needed to fill out for just the submittal to them was going to require me to pull my computer apart to get all of the information they were asking for.

Horrible drive ... hasnt worked since day 1. I dont recommend ... where are the negative stars at ...

lol and on top of that ... looking at neweggs rating system ... this drive has a 3 star rating with 42% of the stars being 1 ... how does that work ... there should be a note next to it saying ... hey we realize that the rating system is jacked up and the majority of people that bought this drive are not happy with it ...
