Truth in advertising and great support too! 5/28/2020 6:59:27 AM

Pros: I've had this drive for two months now. Drive IS UHD (4K) friendly and came with software from the seller. Had a snag with the software, sent an email @ 9pm, had the solution at 7AM the following morning. To be honest, the email was time stamped 1AM. So in summary, it does what they say it does, if you have a problem Support is there to help. Can't ask for more than that in the age of Covid.

Cons: none

Overall Review: AAA+++ Drive is 4K ready. Super product, great software

Rips UHD discs OK, with a minor issue 4/27/2020 5:44:44 PM

Pros: I have this ASUS UHD Friendly Blu-ray Combo Drive installed in an old Lenovo D20 ThinkStation, with Arch Linux as the OS. I rip Blu-Ray movie discs with MakeMKV CLI, and this drive works OK for ripping UHD Blu-Ray discs with makemkv-cli. I ripped two UHD movies with this new drive, and ultimately both discs were ripped OK.

Cons: I did run into problems at first, and I reached out to the Cloner Alliance (reseller providing this UHD-capable BD-ROM drive), and they informed me what the problem is.

Apparently this and all UHD-capable BD-ROM drives suffer from what is known as the "Sleep bug." If you insert a UHD disc (I haven't tried with any other disc type yet), you need to access the drive with your reader software within two minutes, or else the drive "goes to sleep," and makes some really nasty noises while it tries to read the disc. Because of this issue, makemkv-cli would return SCSI or SATA timeout errors, and wouldn't read the disc. Ejecting, re-seating the disc, and closing the tray fixed it, both times. I wasn't aware of the problem at the time, but I suppose after re-seating the disc I started makemkv-cli within two minutes on each second try. It is for this problem alone that I knocked off an entire egg.

Overall Review: My only use-case for this UHD-capable BD-ROM drive is for ripping optical discs (UHD BD, BD, DVD, CD). I don't have plans to use its writing capabilities, as I don't typically back up to optical disc. Re-seating the disc in the tray fixed the problems I was having with it, and now that I know about the "sleep bug" I know how to workaround it going forward.

Review is not for product - for RMA process 3/7/2020 9:44:14 AM

Cons: I wish there was a way to leave reviews that didn't reflect on the product as this is all about NewEgg only. I received incorrect items in shipment, this item never arrived. Contacted NE by chat because it was after phone hours. After a process of providing part numbers and serial numbers of the items I didn't order that arrived, they issued RMA which of course came with the usual ground shipping label. I was supposed to get a replacement and over a week later they refund my money.

Overall Review: I'm sure the drive would have been fine had i received it, or the RMA process worked as it was supposed to.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Gary J.,

I'm sorry to hear about your experience with Newegg Support. This is absolutely not the type of experience we want any of our customers to have. I understand you never received the drive, and that your money has been refunded. If in the future you have any general or technical questions about an ASUS product, feel free to reach out to me at cl-lane@asus.com and include case #N200324496 in your email for reference.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best regards,

Fantastic and fast 8/10/2019 12:45:30 PM

Pros: - Fast
- Quiet
- Simple to install
- Comes with Power2Go 8, PowerBackup 2.6, NERO BackItUp, and E-Green software
- Vendor was closely engaged with my purchase and ready to support me

Cons: - You'll never be able to do more than back up UHD discs if you don't bow down to Intel SGX hardware and DRM (not the fault of this drive's manufacturer, this is a problem with the industry)

Overall Review: Before buying, you should know that DRM nonsense won't change the fact that you need to have the Intel SGX chipset (or whatever newer tech they replace it with) on your motherboard to be able to do anything with a UHD disc besides read data or make a backup image.

Apart from that, this unit does everything, was easy to install, and is much faster than the 9 year old Dell drive it replaced. I was impressed that the vendor reached out to me personally and told me that if I run into any problems they'd be happy to help (and they even answered a question from me very quickly).

I used this to rip Blu Rays to my media server, and the speed difference was dramatic: 4 hours of Blu-Ray content used to take 2 to 2.5 hours to rip, now it's getting the job done in about 30 minutes.

Installation was literal plug & play and it uses Microsoft certified drivers (in Windows, anyway).

The listing here notes that each unit is flashed with UHD-friendly firmware, so I'd advise against using the enclosed Firmware update - it does appear to read UHDs right out of the box. The disc also has CyberLink and Nero apps and ASUS' E-Green app (which drops power consumption when the drive isn't being used) if you need them.

OK Drive 8/8/2019 4:29:55 AM

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.

CAUTION: Do not confuse with similar Blu-Ray burner 7/29/2019 5:47:12 PM

Pros: Probably does what it claims to.

Cons: THIS DRIVE IS INCAPABLE OF BURNING ANY KIND OF BLU-RAY DISC. If you intend to burn a back-up Blu-ray disc, you will need a separate Blu-ray burner. I confused this with the ASUS 16D1HT modified by Cloner Alliance. Kudos to Newegg for their prompt authorization for return for a full refund.

Overall Review: Read the small print.
