ASUS BC-12D2HT Blu-Ray Combo 12x BD-R Reader 16x DVDRW M-DISC 48x CD-R Retail Drive SATA Black is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from rubish the drive can not read bd-ram and struggles with data disks keep your money buy something better don`t just take my word look on anandtech they had same problem
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent drive for the price. The Asus BC-12D2HT Blu-Ray Combo drive is well priced and specced. Quiet in operation compared to some drives I have previously had, not the current fastest of drives on the market, but does the job well and can play CD's with a descent modicum of sound quality. Has good build quality, a reputable name, as I own a few Asus branded components on my own PC build.
Date published: 2015-01-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh it's a optical drive I mean to install a o/s it's fine but I think it should atleast come with software to be able to watch blueray players.
Date published: 2014-12-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a multiformat disc player/recorder It's a little noisy in operation, but that could be due to poorly balanced discs or somesuch. I haven't used it other than to load stuff into my 'rig' (man)... can't comment on its ability to actually play a cd or movie, yet.
Date published: 2014-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a drive, it reads discs. Problem solved. Does exactly what it says n the tin, it's a disc drive, it reads discs. Sometimes those discs are blu-rays, it reads those too. If you're feeling really adventurous, it can even write to some discs! (DVD/CD only, not BD)
Date published: 2014-09-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from About what you would expect. It's a cheap Blu ray combo that works, It's a little on the loud side when it spins up, but if you are not using it, (i.e. wanting to sleep) it doesn't spin at all so no noise. job done.
Date published: 2014-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features excellent picture especially when used in combination with a 144htz asus 3d monitor
Date published: 2014-03-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quiet operation, but not as pictured. Although pictured as all black, only the front is. The metal casing is grey. The face plate is black, but lacks the quality that would would expect from ASUS. Works well and very quiet.

Questions & Answers

What software is included?

The other listed drives say 'no software' but this doesn't. Does this come with any software to play Blu-ray movies on Windows 7?
Asked by: Greeba
basically none they will give you a cut down version of power 2 go 8 which is virtually useless. you can not watch a blue ray you can not watch a dvd you can make a data disk that`s about it the included software can be downloaded and used for free from the cyberlink website so don`t expect too much in this instance you are paying for a brand name not a top notch product i believe one of the pioneer machines come with a total software package for about an extra £10 well worth it
