Great drive for the price


After install, had no problem playing CDs and DVDs or burning DVDs (have not tried burning BRs yet). Had to buy software to play BRs ($36). Plays BRs no problem.

Good buy


Can't comment about the Blue-Ray side (have no software to play the disc and no blank to write to. I have made several CD's and DVD's with no problem. Nice and quiet. I always have good luck with ASUS brand.
