Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I'd hoped it would do I bought this drive specifically to read UHD 4K Blu-ray movie discs and it does so with no issues so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking drive but a little clunky Just took delivery of this ASUS BW-16D1HT yesterday from Scan Computers which did an excellent job of packaging my purchase. And delivery was super quick! Thanks guys! :) Installation of this drive was a breeze although you might need some extra screws to secure it in your case, ASUS only provided 4 which seems mean. Right out of the box the user is required to install the various software and this also provides access to ASUS downloads for the latest Firmware. Admittedly this wasn't as straight forward as I first thought and when clicking 'Update Firmware' I was directed to the ASUS website but then had to search for the firmware manually. Installation of the firmware went smoothly however once downloaded and I am now running version 3.02. There is a newer firmware version 3.03 but currently that download is password protected, ASUS didn't know the password when I asked them. Opening the drive tray was a little disappointing too, the mechanism is very loud and clunky and the drive tray itself feels a little flimsy. That said operation seems quiet enough once the disc is inserted and the addition of a blue light on the front is nice,... green lights are so yesterday! The additional Nero BackItUp software might be a welcome feature to some users though this appears to be a time limited feature of just 6 months (Nero BackItUp 5 Pro) Also ASUS provide 6 months free Unlimited WebStorage which is always useful and a link is provided in the associated paperwork. There's not much more I can say right now as I haven't tested the product fully as yet but ASUS products are generally better than some cheaper brands so I'm hopeful it will last for some time yet. Would I recommend it? YES

Questions & Answers

Is this suitable with a Ryzen 5 processor?

I've just built a new Ryzen 5 1600 PC with 16 GBs RAM and a GeForce GT 610 2 GB's graphics card and wonder if this product will still work in my setup? I don't plan to watch movies, it's mainly for ripping my existing collection to HDD or burning large scale graphic files to disc for archiving.
Asked by: Slinky
I'm not sure if answering my own question is allowed but here goes anyway, I'm sure it will help those who had the same question as myself. So does this writer work on lower spec machines? Yes, absolutely! My CPU is only 3.2 GHz whereas ASUS recommend a minimum of 3.4 GHz. Graphics card was also not an issue and although my ASUS GeForce 610GT model is below that recommended by ASUS for this particular writer it has no problems playing a Blu-ray movie. I guess ASUS were just being careful so as not to disappoint some customers.
