Is that a jet taking off?

Strengths of the product

Hasn't broken

Weaknesses of the product

Noisy.

Additional Comments

Used this drive for last 2 years. It's done what it's suppose too. However....and that's a big however....l This drive is noisy. When listening to audio CD's you have to crank the volume or it will be drowned out. I would not recommend this product for any price.

Does so-so

Strengths of the product

Will read newer formats

Weaknesses of the product

Will not read all CD's. I find that the LG works much better reading older burned CD's and DVD's which this model refuses to display contents of.

Additional Comments

Get the LG version if you wish more compatibility, or save the money and get this. I should have known better, as this is my second Asus brand that had these issues, and bought another LG brand.

Solid, fast blu-ray ripper

Strengths of the product

Reliable blu-ray ripper

Weaknesses of the product

Additional Comments

It's worked reliably with every blu-ray disc I've tried at a fast 7-8x read speed of 33 MB/s. Quiet in operation. Eject/loading tray feels solid too. I'd recommend this drive, and would purchase again.

Solid drive.

Strengths of the product

Quiet enough for HTPC, at full speed it's quieter than a 1g Xbox 360 at idle Shortest drive on the market (good for cramped cases like the Silverstone ML03) No hiccups with drivers, etc

Weaknesses of the product

OEM drives have no software with them and Blu-ray software is still in the $80-100 range. Just know that it's going to cost more if you want to play Blu-ray movies. Indicator light is blue ultrabright

Additional Comments

Faceplate and tray nose are solid and look good. It's the second quietest drive I've owned. My biggest beef with this thing (and a lot of components these days) is the use of a blue ultrabright LED. It has a frosted diffuser but that's not enough to stop it from burning out my retinas. Solved the issue by removing the diffuser and spraying it with taillight tint but if I was an ordinary consumer(and cared about my warranty) it would be completely intolerable and I'd be looking for another drive.

Strengths of the product

A good solid blue ray burner/combo drive at a decent price. Has been working well for the last several months. With the Asus brand I don't have any worries when it comes to reliability.

Weaknesses of the product

None that i can see..... I wish it was dual layer

Additional Comments

All Blue-Ray discs I've burnt play flawlessly on my cheap Samsung player. Does what's expected and without hiccups.
