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.

Finally a drive to save my 4K movies 2/15/2019 5:55:53 AM

Pros: Simple installation
Fast read time

Cons: None

Overall Review: Installation into my new Homebrew system was straightforward and with installation of my software I was able to make a mkv backup of my 4k movies to place on my plex system.

After discouraging results at trying to locate a valid and price effective drive it was nice to locate one finally that just, well works.
