5 out of 5 eggsGood media reader/burner

Pros: This thing does exactly what it's asked to do.

Cons: Not much to complain about, had this since September 2013, works like a charm.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus Customer Service

Pros: Can't give input for this product, BUT

Cons: Alejandro V. Cons I can give input.
"Installed it... never worked... called ASUS support...they blamed everything BUT their product."

I have had the absolute worst experience with Asus support multiple times. If you need support, you will lose every time.

Read the cons of others that are on this product and any Asus products and you will see a definite trend.

Other Thoughts: If you get a good one, everything will be great. If you don't, throw it in the trash and buy another brand.

1 out of 5 eggsDVD's will not play on Samsung BluRay Player

Pros: It has a rebate(if I get it) and it runs quiet.

Cons: The DVD's produced are coasters in a year old Samsung Blu-Ray/DVD player. I tried HP AND Verbatim16X, DVD-R disks with the same result. When loaded my screen shows "Loading, loading.................." then the disk ejects with "media is not compatible"! Same burn in my old Phillips DVD 8801 is just fine! Also, the lowest ASUS burning speed is 8X, so I could not test a 4X burn to see this would help.

Other Thoughts: Thought that this would be a great replacement for my old DVD drive but I was so wrong. I did try to contact ASUS for support. Several attempts to fill out their form online did not work. When I got to the drop down for my Model # the list was NOT for Blu-Ray or DVD burners and without my Model number I was not allowed to submit the form. Calling Asus phone number twice, resulted in over 40 minutes ON HOLD with mind numbing muzak and they never did answer. I really do appreciate the great customer service from Newegg!

3 out of 5 eggsMaybe a bad batch?

Pros: 16X bluray - Sata, black, matches everything else in the case, nifty blue activity light.

Cons: Reads approximately 75% of my DVD collection and reads all blurays. Oddly enough, the prior model BW-12 is a much better product. The BW-12 reads every disc I put into it - the BW-16 reads 'most' but not all.

Other Thoughts: BluRay playback software would have been great as that is $60+ to buy separately. The included software for these drives sucks - you'd be better off downloading CladDVD, DVDShrink, DVDFab, WinX DVD Ripper, Freemake, etc etc - any decent BluRay Playback software will run you a lot of cash, but for just ripping blurays or reading/writing files and discs it works fine when it can recognize a disc is in it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible.

Pros: Haven't found any.

Cons: Won't recognize Blu-ray disks or DVDs without expensive third party software.

Other Thoughts: With the Blu-ray logo on the front, I shouldn't have to read the fine print for a statement that specifically states that plays Blu-ray disks. That's implied. It doesn't need to have the best player software on the market but it should, at the very least, include the worst. The price of this unit may vary but unless you get it free, I wouldn't bother. I won't buy anything from Asus after this.

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked

Pros: Big Name and BIG specs

Cons: Installed it... never worked... called ASUS support...they blamed everything BUT their product. Sent it back got a LG.... installed it ..worked from day 1 NOT a single problem...
It could have been a single faulty piece of hardware but I will not take more chances...

1 out of 5 eggsasus did not honor mail in rebate

Pros: Pros: - Not their rebate processing center...

Cons: provided all necessary documentation for the online mail in rebate to ASUS, even cut out the barcode directly from the box and included it in the letter, but then I receive an email saying "Original UPC/Serial Number Barcode Label is missing" even though I cut it out right from the box.

I check on their documents they scanned and it just so happens that they don't have my barcode scanned in there. They are running a scam and I don't appreciate it.

2 out of 5 eggsBurns blue-rays

Pros: The drive is fast and quiet as compared to some of the LG's that I have owned. All of the disc's I have burned so far have worked in 2 different blue-ray players.

Cons: Included software (if any) is useless. Plan on forking out a few more dollars for some good blue-ray player and burner software.

Other Thoughts: This is more of a Newegg issue. If you were to look at what's included with this drive you will see that a impressive and complete software package seems to be included with this drive. However, (and this is a big however) notice that it says optional, pro only. This is because there are a couple versions of this drive available. The one on Newegg is not the pro version. The only place that I have found the pro version is in Australia. In order to eliminate confusion and what looks like some deception, Newegg should just remove the listed software from their advertisement and simply put "none" in place of the deleted entries. The pro version of this drive is not available in the United States (that I could find), so why list a software package you are never get with your drive?
