5.0 out of 5 stars Works great for backing up large amounts of data., February 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS 12X Blu-ray Internal Burner Drive with Disc Encryption - Black - Retail Box (Personal Computers)
I don't really use this drive for watching movies or burning movies. I bought it to back up large amounts of data. I was using Double Layer DVDs, but files keep getting bigger and bigger (twss).

I have tested to see how well it does play movies just to check it out and it does a wonderful job (Used TotalMedia Theatre 5). Also just for fun I ripped a BR movie to MKV to see its rip times and was pretty impressed.

I've burned 5 ~24GB disc (and verified) so far with no problems. For the price this is a great drive... but note it DOES NOT come with BR Playback software... Obtain either PowerDVD or TotalMedia Theatre 5 if you plan on playing Movie BluRay Disc. As far as burning disc it does come with a basic PowerDVD burning tool which is pretty much crap, but IMGBurn (free) works great with it.
