I bought this disk drive for my new home computer system I built and could not be happier. ASUS makes great products and this blu-ray reader / DVD writer combo lives up to that reputation. Normal 3.5" mount style; easy to install; looks great in black computer cases.
my only dislike and the reason for the 4 star is the software bundle.Asus would have hoped to gotten a little better dvd player software been buying asus for many yr's and use when ever possible.loads fast,and reads well,burns quick too.
I had purchased and used several brands of DVD and Blu-Ray burners over the years and when I purchased my first ASUS Blu-Ray burner 4 years ago, I was impressed. At that time I was burning at least 10 DVD's or Blu-Rays a week or about 50 a month with no coasters. In fact, it still works perfectly but I decided to buy this ASUS burner because it has the M-Disk option that I find useful in storing photos and music that I converted from vinyl. I gave my old unit to my son who is burning disks with it without any issues. So, if you are looking for a reliable and quiet Blu-Ray burner, look no further and buy this one, you will be happy that you did.
