Features    [ Edit | History ]
E-Green (Energy Green Engine)

The innovative drive E-Green Engine technology features an E-Green Mode that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to help conserve energy - helping the environment by decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing the depletion of trees.

OTS (Optimal Tuning Strategy)

With OTS, the drive will perform a test before really burning which generate the optimal burning strategy automatically for the best burning quality.


E-Hammer allows you to permanently delete  the data on writable disc (CD-R and DVD-R) formats. Once the data is delete d, it cannot be recovered or restored, and the optical drive will not be able to read the disc. This ensures data security, eliminates the hassle of scratching your old discs, and conforms with our commitment to environmental protection.

AVRS (Auto Vibration Reducing System)

The AVRS technology is designed to minimize the vibration caused by the spindle motor and resonance between components as well as the drive and PC cases. AVRS is designed to reduce vibration anD noise induced by unbalanced mass of rotating machinery. With AVRS, ASUS DRW-24B1 provides high readability and playability.

Great DVD burner, very silent
I build many pc with this drive are very excellent, never rma always good quality from asus. Many time take it at 19,99$ from special. Very quiet, silent and really do the job like a pro !

Experience: 18 Months
Worked great while it lasted
Not too noisy
Died prematurely with no reason
I bought the drive in late October 2011, it has worked like a champ when I needed to use it once or twice a month.

This morning, it wouldn't open on its own. It can't read anything either if you activate it manually. The light turns on and Windows says an error has occurred when I try to eject it from the OS.

Basically, it died in a year and a half with very little use.

Would not buy again.

Well priced rebranded Lite-On drive.
1.05 version c. W. The version I got can't be cross-flashed though. No problem though with the Burner Max Payload Tool for X360 backups.

-Relatively quiet
For people that still require optical drives, this would be a good purchase. It also includes a few utilities like Nero 10 Essentials which some may find useful.

Speed, compatibility, stability, affordable.
I replaced this with the old unit that finally reached its EoL last year and it's been a faithful performer ever since. It offers great performance for its price.

J'en ai pas vraiment trouvé et je possède 3 identiques de ces lecteurs.
Je viens d'acheter mon troisème lecteur/graveur cd/dvd de ASUS. Tous fonctionnent très bien. La finition extérieure du produit est d'une belle apparence et reflète la qualité Asus. Je suis très satisfait de mes achats et je reprendrais les mêmes si le besoin serait

Fairly quiet
Don't really know what else to say. It's a SATA DVD drive that's quiet and works without issue.

Optical drives are generally antiquated technology.
Really would prefer to do without them but not every company has moved into the current world of digital downloads. But at this price at least it's really not a big deal.

Posted by: bart_v @02/04/11
Comment: the ASUS DRW-24B1ST has not disappointed, it performed as well as any drive of comparable speed and type out there. The stuff that really makes the DRW-24B1ST perform above and beyond is the extra technology of OTS and AVRS and the additional programs like E-Green and E-Hammer.
