Pros: Does what is says it does. Simple installation. The drive reads the content of my 4k movies so that I can add them to my nas and play them with plex or kodi.

Cons: The drive is a little bit slower than previous optical drives I've purchased. It is technically not a 4k drive and as such does not meet the requirements of a 4k HTPC. Using Powerdvd 19ultra this drive will read dvd & standard bluray but not 4k discs, it simiply does not meet Cyberlink's requirements.

Overall Review: Decent drive with limitations.

Pros: Great price, lots of features, solid board at the beginning.

Cons: Slower than average startup. CPU fan header (and yes, there's only one of them) failed after 10 months.

Overall Review: I like ASUS, I've bought their tablets and other devices, but I think I'm done. Some work great, others, not so much. Too much inconsistency.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for sharing your ASUS experience. I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. What type of CPU cooler are you using with your PC? Have you tried setting your CPU Fan setting to PWM? If you haven’t already please Download UEFI version 2603 and extract the file to a fat formatted usb stick. Then navigate in bios to the tools menu and use the EZflash utility to do the flash. Let your system update the firmware as needed. Do not power down even if your system sits with a blank screen for 10 minutes or so. When updating your UEFI please make sure to wait for the firmware to update after the board restarts following the flash. This can take a couple of minutes after the board restarts. The board should be left alone during this process. If you need further technical information, feel free to contact me at Thank you for choosing ASUS!
