Horrible!, Asus is way over-rated.

Pros: I got to watch The Force Awakens on blu-ray once.

Cons: After just a few months it quit reading blu-ray movies all together. Sent it back to Asus for repair took about 3 weeks to get it back because they gave me the wrong address. Worked again for a few months and once again it stopped reading blu-rays. Called Asus back and they wouldn't replace it. Now I'm lucky if I can get a DVD to play.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend and will never buy another Asus product.

How long are these things supposed to last?

Pros: It played Blue-ray discs. About 5 of them.

Cons: After 3 and a half years, It doesn't play anything any more. Won't even get recognized by the system. No matter which computer system I try to install it into.
For $69.99 I definitely expected it to last a lot longer. Especially since I didn't use it that much? I probably watched a grand total of 5 (Blue-ray or other DVD) movies with it. Also it was a secondary drive so all my CD installs took place on my main DVD drive. :/

Other Thoughts: Would I buy it again? No
Would I recommend it to another? No

Don't use it with Asus Firmware

Pros: - Great burner as long as you "unlock" it to an LG burner
- Works with Plexdisc and Optical quantum

Cons: - Trash Asus Firmware

Other Thoughts: The drive is a rebranded LG burner. Just go online and do a search for LG firmware and you can unlock the drive to an LG Burner and use LG firmware with it which will make it operate much better with less compatibility issues with certain discs.
