The Good and the Bad 08/08/2013
This review is from: ASUS Black 12X Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
1.) The Drive looks good and is of normal Asus/LiteOn quality
2.) Reads everything that I can throw at it
3.) Writes to everything BUT (Read Cons).
Will not write with the selected media at the advertised speeds. For example... 6x Blu Ray media only writes at 2x and etc. Tried numerous brands of media and the drive only writes at 2x on Blu Ray media. I purchased a 2nd drive just to see if my drive was faulty and sure enough the 2nd drive did the same thing. Apparently this is very common on this drive if you dig through the internet and see the comments concerning this drive. Some have taken drastic steps to convert the firmware to LiteOn and then the drive will write at 6x but the consumer should not have to go through this trouble as Asus can simply put out a new firmware version to fix it.
ASUS... Please respond or put out a firmware update to fix this issue.
