Asus External 12X Blu-Ray Burner with USB 3.0 BW-1&hellip by ASUS
5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, Nov. 2 2013
After wearing out my internal Blu-ray drive on my laptop, I purchased this drive. I've only used it for playback, and I've yet to try to burn a disc, but it works like a dream. I've been using it frequently for almost a year now.

My laptop is a little old, so I'm connecting this USB 3.0 compatible drive into a 2.0 port, but it hasn't affected video playback at all.

There is a negative review on this product, so any buyers wanting to playback Blu-ray movies, please understand that up-to-date Blu-ray playback software is something you'll definitely have to purchase separately.

Bond 50: Celebrating Five Decades of James Bond [B&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Sean Connery

Also, I'm disappointed that they… Read more
The Office: The Complete Eighth Season [Blu-ray]

This is the first time I've came across flipper discs that have DVD content on one side, and Blu-ray on the other... and I'm unsatisfied. One of my discs was defective (on the Blu-ray side). Not only that, but the packaging is terrible and trying to remove the discs from the package without cracking them makes you feel like Ethan Hunt from Mission Impossible. I understand them trying to satisfy the combo BD/DVD market, but this is NOT the way to do it.

Be warned!
