  • Asus Slim Drive
    Reviewed by COFFEEMAN - November 25, 2020

    Excellent product, easy to use, easy to setup. This is my second burner as some computers don’t have them anymore. It opens just like the one in a computer disc slides out. It’s good to see that it has 2 power cords as some people are still using 2.0 USB that’s good feature. Had no problem being recognized in USB port. If not recognized In the port, Search YouTube for driver not being recognized, it’s a simple windows setting to turn on or off. As a simple to use product, does the job would definitely buy this product again, the price was reasonable and served my needs.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Works Well, But...
    Reviewed by Nelly - November 23, 2014

    Works well. Easy to install. Relatively quiet drive when in use. I'm a bit disappointed that the drive did not come with the stand that is pictured. There isn't even a slot for a stand to snap on to. It's as if a stand was never designed for this drive. The included instructions even shows how to attach and detach the stand. I know it's not an older model because the sticker on the bottom of the drive states that it was built on Aug. 2014 and the drive was purchased Nov. 2014. It's not a huge deal but a bit disappointing as I have a small work area and was anticipating the stand to free up space. If it's not a big deal to you, the drive is fine.

  • Where's the STAND?
    Reviewed by Gunner45 - April 5, 2015

    Sure would be nice if BB included the STAND. It's not in the box. ASUS says optional.

  • Excellent Value
    Verified BuyerReviewed by bsquare - July 2, 2015

    My new laptop no longer has an optical drive so this serves the purpose just fine for the rare occasions I need it. It's a little thicker than I was hoping for which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. The included software works fine for recording files on a DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW. However if you are using Windows 8 & above and want to play DVD movies, you will need to install external software to do this. The included software will not allow you to play movies on your windows 8 computer. I located software on-line to do this at no cost. Here's the name of the file: Combined-Community-Codec-Pack-2014-07-13
