1 out of 5 eggsTerribad Longevity

Pros: What can I say, it did what it was suppose to till it broke

Cons: Bought this on 02-22-2014 and on 04-30-2015 the drive has ceased working. Burned far more discs on other drives, even made lightscribe labels on them and they lasted longer than 1 year. this is pitiful and a disgrace. I am one angry customer that will no longer buy any ASUS product.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy

Pros: I bought a Asus Desk Top PC M32 US019S that I thought had a Blu Ray Writer as the add says Blu Ray combo.
It was only a player that I don't need plus it wouldn't even burn a standard DVD.
Message said To big for disc the disc was 4.7GB and the project 2.7GB.
I bought an external Blu Ray but had problems it would crash the computer.
So I finally bought this Asus burner and replaced the one that came with the PC.
I tested it with two standard burns and a Blu Ray burn they all came out great so far so good.
I can only hope it keeps up the good work.

Cons: It did not recognise my back up photo discs.
Not sure why I need to check that out further.

Other Thoughts: Blu Ray Combo drive means to me a burner and a player both Blu Ray and standard.
Very dissapoinetd that Asus would include the player which can't be used without extra software and not a burner.
So this PC cost me $200 more than it should.
I should send the the old player back and get refunded but they could care less.
Not happy with Asus so far,my last PC was Gateway and it still works great but is XP.

1 out of 5 eggsabsolute garbage!

Pros: purchased during rebate period last fall (2014).

Cons: issue from day one, drive does NOT recognize 99% of purchased dvds or discs from netflix.

from the day of original build, i had to install (and still using), an older LG Super Multi drive without ANY issue. SO issue is narrowed to the Asus drive not reading discs..

These drives are connected to an Asus Z97-Pro motherboard. I would have thought asus mother board and asus dvd drive would play nice together, but obviously not..

I will be contacting Asus on this issue and i expect to receive a WORKING drive or else i am filing a complaint on this!!

thought i was getting a good deal at the time... i even purchased Newegg's warranty '1 x 3 Years for the Price of 2 Years For Item#N82E16827135306', just in case there was an issue...

I have been looking for 6 months now for any Asus bios/update for this drive.. nothing found. I should have returned immediately under the 30 exchange period, but i was for sure thinking asus would have an updated firmware or fix in a timely matter, but no... I have been a big asus fan up til this last build.. Cannot say i trust Asus drives anymore.. :(

Other Thoughts: stay away from this drive until asus has better updates for drives.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS BW-16D1HT fails to write

Pros: when it worked, for less than 2 months, was speedy. Actual rating would be far less than 1 star.

Cons: Suddenly failed to complete DVD/BD writes using 3 different media burning programs on 2 different computers and also failed image verifications of written-to media - after tray was recycled before verify, one program couldn't access the device. Missed return to NE by a few days, sent back to mfg for evaluation - same drive was returned to me shortly after with explanation that "Test ok". A total ASUS tech support bull$ht experience. Either the unit wasn't tested or wasn't tested properly or for long enough. A total joke.

Other Thoughts: I am an IT pro with over 20 years experience and know when a device is malfunctioning. Have been an ASUS client for many years (motherboards, burners, etc.). Will make a second attempt to get mfg off their dead butts and either repair or replace this boat anchor of a media burner. Barring that, I suppose there'll be litigation in ASUS's immediate future.

Newwegg - you need to be aware of this

1 out of 5 eggsRebate process designed to be as complex and impossible as possible. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible.

Pros: -

Cons: Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. Just bought this drive. Had a $25 mail in coupon mixed into the price. While I went thru the rebate process it got clear to me that the process was designed to be as annoying and complicated as possible. It ended up with an option where I could pay ASUS a fee to not have to wait 10 weeks for getting closure on this. Embarrassing and complete waste of my time. It is my mistake that I accepted to play the whole game of mail in rebates, but it really is on ASUS to so systematically make this hard to do.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

In behalf of ASUS I want to apoogize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you. I understand the frustration if it were me I would be frustrated as well. If you want to talk to somebody about he rebate you can call this number 18888208964. If in the future you're going to need assistance with the unit please feel free to email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case # N150262607 in the subject line for your reference.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus just gets better

Pros: Easy install Popped out the old Asus player and replaced it with this one. Started my machine and everything worked Set itself up Works great with Windows 8.1

Cons: Wish the Blu Ray Logo on the front was still Blue. That's it

Other Thoughts: There is so much pleasure watching a movie with this player. Wish they dressed up the front like on the early Blu Ray players from Asus

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Works

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't really use it much but the other day I popped a bluray disc in and it read it just fine. I haven't tested it well but for basic use this is a great device.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Optical Drive

Pros: This disc drive is fast, quiet, and seems to work very well although I have not tried to burn a blu ray with it yet. It works great with everything else and I will test the blu ray burning quality and capability soon.

Cons: No cons that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this optical drive. It is the fastest I have ever used, and it is well worth the investment for the higher price.
