  • Great blu-ray drive
    Reviewed by Andy - September 12, 2018

    I don't know what other reviewers are talking about; this works great with my Windows 10 PC. It plays blu-ray movies on the PC (with software not included) and works well with other apps, too. My only complaint would be it disconnects itself from the PC sometimes (I think this has to do with two separate apps trying to access it at the same time) and has to be unplugged and plugged back in to function again. It works well reading BD's, DVD's and CD's. The only thing I haven't used it for is writing to DVD-R or CD-R. Note: This unit does not write to any writable blu-ray format disc. It does exactly what I needed it for and so I recommend it.

  • Best Blu ray Drive For The Price
    Reviewed by Tyler - February 18, 2019

    I don't know why people say this is a bad Bluray drive its not its really good. people are also complaining about it not playing DVD or Bluray movies out of the box but that is the case with every Bluray drive unless you already have software or the drive comes with software.

  • Good Product
    Reviewed by Robert - May 12, 2020

    I bought my version back in 2012 and it still works perfectly! Not sure why it's getting such a bad review. Asus makes a good product and I highly recommend this item.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Stopped working after about two years
    Reviewed by Cat - January 3, 2022

    I've bought about two years ago. I've been using it seldomly, maybe for two, three times for writing data on bluray discs (family videos). When I tried again now, the unit doesn't recognize the blank bluray disc, so I cannot burn bluray discs anymore ... I've reinstalled the driver and firmware but without success. This is the second ASUS unit that I've bought so far - the first stopped working in similar way. I have also an Asus laptop (big mistake!) that is freezing from time to time eventhough I am using it occasionally ... Good lesson for me: quit buying from ASUS brand - bye, ASUS!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • The Player works fine.
    Reviewed by Crankshaft49 - May 26, 2021

    This BD player works fine...but you need a third party software that will play BluRay to make it work, I bought one from Cyberlink because the VLC (free)...would not play Blu Ray no matter what I tried...I get lost installing codec's and such. I just wanted something that worked so it cost me over and above the price of this player. You would think that Asus would include in the software that they do provide a simple player program instead of the useless ( to me anyway ) programs .

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
