Pros
Black front.
Cons
Really loud!
Summary
I seen the all black picture and needed a DVD Blu-ray combo drive, but sadly it was grey with a black front. Not a big deal, otherwise I would have bought an LG, I actually prefer then over ASUS. When it spins up, gets super loud, like a helicopter. Not a bad optical drive, just at the price point could have gotten something better.

Dont like the sleep mode of the computer
Summary
Good BD device. When he work's, he work's well. The only problem is the device dont like the sleep mode of Windows. After the sleep mode, the device work but you can not watch a movie (skip). You need to shutdown the computer and start it again. But after that you can enjoy a movie.

Cons
Wish it was available in white
Summary
What can I say about this drive, well, it works, it's fairly easy on the ears, and it comes with some software even.

It doesn't burn blu-ray, but who needs to do that? If you rent an blu-ray, you can watch it on your computer.

The face plate could be a bit more modern looking, and it would be nice if it was white to go with my case too (but that's just asking too much).

Pros
Made my Asus, quiet, fast, Blu-ray, cheap
Cons
None
Summary
Easy to install and easy to use... not that anyone uses these anymore! Bought this to replace my Asus DVD only burner, opted for this over the Blu-ray burner simply since I have no desire to or plan to burn Blu-ray discs... that era has passed and I just got rid of the last of my DVD's... Will keep my 20 or so Blu-ray discs but now a days everything is downloaded and streamed... Buying discs for movies OR games is such a waist of time and garbage collection. It's nice to have my computer able to play blu-rays and the odd disc needs to be burned here and there... Voilà! Works well out of the...ummm plastic(OEM) and looks/sounds great. latest firmware already onboard

Works as advertised.
Cons
Mine didn't work all the time. Assuming defect.
Summary
As mentioned above, the one I got only worked intermittently, but when it did work it worked as I expected.
