Experience: 2 Years
Sometimes it won't be detected
It is a very good unit, but it is a bit noisy. It is fast though and never failed to burn a CD or DVD within the past 2 years. To be honest though, I don't burn as much as I used too. It is a good reader on the other hand !

Sometimes I am having troubles with it though. Randomly, it won't show in the BIOS and Windows. I reboot the computer and then it works. I swapped the SATA and power cables and no changes. It is not annoying because I don't use it as much as I did, but it happened to me few times in the past years. I have the latest firmware. For 20$ bucks, which is what I paid on sale, I don't really bother about this hickup.

Experience: 4 Months
-looks good
Ive loaded over 1000 music disks on to my new PC with this thing, and it's still running at the same speed as when I purchased it. I can't believe the speed it loads CD's compared to my old optical drive. Incredible. The only downside is that when it reaches max speed, it does get a little louder, but hey. Don't they all?
Overall, solid drive, and would definitely purchase again.

Experience: 1 Months
-fast enough
-built with silence in mind so its not that loud
-compatible with nero 10
-retail package is more expensive than OEM, but bought this as a gift
Its a great dvd drive although the odds are that you arent going to use it often

Experience: 1 Years
Fast Quiet,Looks good
Nice drive ,fairly fast ,works well with Nero 10 and E-Hammer,good for the price,recommended.Nice looking front plate,sata powered.

Experience: 7 Days

Bon graveur et lecteur de DVD.
Un peu bruyant.
Aucun problème d'installation. Excellente qualité et tous comme le graveur de mon laptop ASUS, il est plutôt bruyant. Comme il tourne seulement pendent un bref instant, ce n'est pas un point négatif pour moi, mais peut être achalant si on l'utilise longuement.

Experience: 3 Weeks

Cheap DVD burner
Asus logo on the front is kindof big, making it not so good looking
Good cheap dvd burner for those who dont mind the Asus logo on it.

Experience: 14 Days

Cheap dvd burner, does the job.
Noisy when loading disk
Great price for a dvd burner. It's fast for reading/writing. Only gripe I have is that it makes a very loud noise when it first starts spinning up. But it's quiet once it starts running.

Experience: 14 Days

cheap, fast and a good brand
kinda loud, annoying initializing on startup noise.
I needed a cheap drive, this fits the bill. Not sure what the advantage to "retail" is besides a box I threw away. Last OEM drive I bought still came with the DVD full of programs. Still a good drive though.

Experience: 2 Years
Good reliable cheap.
Always by cheap asus burners for builds for myself or customers never had a problem with them yet.
