Customer Reviews

The main issue I keep having is sometimes after booting it appears or disappears my "my computer".
baby boomer
I have now played Blu-Ray and DVD movies, ripped music from CD to iTunes, and burned data to DVD-R, CD-RW and CD-R with no problems whatsoever.

This is exactly what I was looking for, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a blu-ray drive!

Outstanding data drive. Quiet. Fast. Solid. I am ordering my third drive for another machine.

Software? Licensing fees for Blu-Ray are not trivial, so don't expect any at this price.

The drive works fine, not really any problems with it. I wish it would have come with some kind of software to run Blurays though. The whole reason I purchased this was to watch Blurays on my computer. I quickly found out what a pain that is so I just ended up returning it. Not a problem with the drive, just Sony's "protection" software with Blurays.

So if you're buying this to watch Blurays on your computer be prepared to drop another $60-$100 on software. The "free alternatives" that supposedly play Blurays didn't work for me.

I have used this on my Mac mini with Vantec NexStar DX NST-530S2 5.25-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 Optical Drive External Enclosure (Black) for a month now. It worked under Lion (10.7) and now works with Mountain Lion (10.8).

Mac OS X by default will recognize BD media, but will not play it. Which is fine with me. I bought it for the purpose of ripping my BD movies for use with iTunes and my 1080p Apple TV. I use MakeMKV to copy the content of the blu-ray discs to my external HD, then I use HandBrake to convert the MKV to an M4V file for iTunes. It's time consuming, but it works well.

And no, I didn't need to install any drivers or any of that garbage for the drive to work. I just popped it into the enclosure, connected the enclosure via USB, and it worked.

This drive seems like a good one, but it only installed the CD Version of Windows 7, 64-bit. After that, it didn't show up in My Computer. I tried going to the ASUS website, and there was only a driver for Windows 8 related to PowerDVD (blu-ray movie player software). I tried looking for drivers on the CD that accompanied the drive, using another computer, except there were no drivers on it. There were just some programs, like Blu-ray software (PowerDVD), something called E-Hammer, and a ASUS Green program that didn't detect my drive either. I went to support, and they couldn't seem to find a solution either. I can't play any CDs, DVDs, or blu-ray, and the drive doesn't show up in My Computer. Only in Device Manager. So this disk drive, while nice, isn't really useful to me. I can hear it running when I insert a disk, but it doesn't show up, and nothing happens.

If anyone has a solution, let me know, and I'll change my review to reflect this.

Also, I'm sure this has already been stated, and it wasn't a problem for me, but this drive doesn't come with any cables.

I bought this mainly because my regular network LG Blu Ray player was not 3d capable. This with descent software is very 3d capable. So I kicked the LG out the door, and decided to turn one of my pc's into a HTPC. Great quality drive for the price. Mine runs nice and quiet, and quick.

I just needed a simple Blu-ray drive for my PC and this fit the bill. You'll need to get software elsewhere (as others have noted), but for the price it's exactly what I was looking for.

The drive works great but i would recommend spending the extra 20 bucks and getting one with the bluray software. I have been looking around and all the good bluray software is going to cost 40 bucks and over so you save some money getting the drives that come with it.
