    Works Great

    Customer review by dgaus

    This drive works great. It only contained an install disc for Power2Go7 and a Firmware update neither of which I installed. I simply slid the drive in, hooked the power and SATA cable to it and to the board in my PC and the drive was immediately recognized on start up and reads/rips/burns etc quite well. Windows supplies all drivers so no worries. Burned video played flawlessly and I used a cheap quality BD-R disc to test it. I would not expect a drive to include "video" editing, burning or really even playing software. Most PC's come with something already and there are plenty available out there and each person has their preference. Why increase the price for everyone who doesn't need additional software. I held off about 6 months before adding a second drive to my PC then saw this one for $50 after rebate and picked it up. Very happy with the purchase.

    Easy to install. It went right to work without a glitch. Love it. Made a little whir sound but haven't heard that any more. I've made two 25GB Blu-Ray's so far. Excellent quality for sure. Made one expensive Verbatim coaster, unrelated to Asus writer. Enjoy.

    Good Blu-Ray Burner

    Customer review by cprice55

    Easy installation. I replaced a DVD burner I had with the ASUS BW-12B1ST. Used the same SATA connection. I checked several online reviews and this burner kept coming up along with several others. This one was one of the favorites with high ratings and price was about the same price compared with and The burner worked like I had hoped. Great with no problems. This was my first purchase at The delivery time was fast. It was only a couple of days. It was like having Federal Express delivery but for free. I had it delivered to the local Walmart store. Printed out the emailed receipt, was in and out of the store in about 5 minutes. I found the best place to get blank Blu-Ray disks was at Walmart did not sell them yet. It takes awhile for the retail stores to catch up with the latest and greatest computer technology. I had the same experience when CD's and DVD's first came out. I highly recommend the ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu-ray burner and

    After burning a blu-ray disk, will I be able to play it on a blu-ray player that is attached to my television set ? Also, could you play the burned disk on a Playstation 3 that has blu-ray support ?

    • I do. Movies, You tube video, my photo gallery, and my music.

    • Depends on the brand and model of Blu-ray player you’re using. Certain brands and models can only support particular and a limited amount of audio and video formats on the Blu-ray disc.

    • I cannot speak for this particular model or Blu Ray in general. This technology might be better than DVD, but I was not able to successfully play discs on a DVD player. There is something in the format that just wasn't quite right. Perhaps there are other brands and higher priced models that do a better job, but my guess is that things you put in the players need to be very carefully formatted and professionally done. Any hopes you can simply record and go are pretty much mythical. If anyone else has had better results please share what you did.

    • I know that the disks will play on the PS3 because that is what I use as my Blu-ray player. I must guess that if it plays on a ps3 it will play on any other blu-ray player but I have no experience with other players.
