Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works well and seems robust Only down point is the sliding power on/off switch. Tends to fight back a bit when using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let down by supplied software (old version of PowerDVD) I chose this Blu-Ray reader/writer because my laptop didn't have an optic drive, my choice when Scan built it for me. I thought I could manage without one but my laptop has become the key element for my entertainment centre as well as a powerful video editing tool. Living on a yacht I have limited desktop space for anything else other than my Scan 3XS 17inch laptop and although this unit is not the smallest external Blu-Ray reader/writer on the market, it was very well specked as far as writing speeds with the added bonus of playing my growing collection of Blu-Ray Films. It's this aspect that let it down for me. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the hardware, in fact it's everything I thought it would be apart from little niggles with the power switch slider and the eject and load switch, they are just awkward to use, all part of the overall design I suppose. That aside the picture quality I get from the unit itself is excellent. I would have given this 5 stars and marked it as excellent value if the software that came with it was up to date. It came with Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 which would only play my old Blu-Ray discs and as soon as I tried newer releases it wouldn't play them at all. I have Windows 10 pro installed on my laptop and although I tried to update PowerDVD 12 on the Cyberlink website to account for this, it still wouldn't play the newer releases. In the end I had to upgrade PowerDVD 12 to PowerDVD 16 at a cost of £50.00. As soon as I had done this it would play the newer Blu-Ray releases as well as older ones. I am still happy with my purchase as far as the Blu-Ray player side of it goes, I haven't had a chance yet to see how well it lives up to it's advertised writing speeds to disc. Overall the unit is quiet and DVD's and CD's load up very quickly, the software interface, once upgraded is very responsive. The only thing I noticed and I'm not sure this is a fault is that when ejecting the discs from the unit after playing, they seem rather warm to the touch. However we shall see over the next few months whether this is an issue or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus Blue Ray I bought this item to replace an older HP one that was past it's sell by date. I use this for making Blue Ray discs of our visits to various industrial archaeology sites and various days out and holidays, the item was a breeze to set up on windows 10 and is very quiet in use. Although I have only had this item for a short while the results are excellent and burns discs that my old writer would not touch, I did not use the enclosed software as I already had good video software on my PC, I can find no bad points for this writer and ordering from Scan was the usual easy process with good prices and next day delivery. I would recommend this writer and would certainly buy this again. GP
