I am able to.select this dvd drive in BIOS in order to boot up a pc that has no dvd drive. Also it burns at a decent speed.
In addition, it didn't come with the cute little stand so I could have it stand vertically (as desk space is sometimes an issue).
Edit at 4/18/14: This drive stopped working after 18 months. Review changed to 1 star.
It is a bit dinky, and doesn't include the base as shown. Time will tell if it holds up of fails quickly. So far, so good.
I used this on my 1st Gen MacBook Air running OSX Snow Leopard, IBM x-31 laptop running Ubuntu 10, Desktop PC running Windows 7, and my Acer Revo Aspire Nettop PC running Windows 7. With all computers, the Asus drive fired up immediately (plug-and-play) with no drivers to load, or any hassle. Works great on all the platforms/machines I tested with just the single USB plug. Reads and plays DVD's just fine (I used VLC Media Player on the Mac and Ubuntu), though I have not tried burning disks yet.
As far as the unit itself, it's a nice lightweight, slim, external drive. It's got a glossy black plastic top with a diamond pattern texture. I haven't felt the need to use the upright bracket. It's nice and stable laying flat. Runs quiet. I have no complaints.
PROs: small footprint, cheap, dead simple setup, reliable
COns: By design door does not open all the way ( i think this is so it won't tip over) so you have to slightly slide in disk. Easy to do once you get the hang of it.
My only complaint, and it's pretty minor, is that the stand is pretty lightweight, so if you choose to place the device upright, it will tip forward when you open the drawer. Other than that though, very pleased. Hope they send my rebate in a timely manner!
