I know not everyone has a 5.25" drive available, but this is a much higher reviewed and faster BD-R drive I just pulled the trigger on. $41 after coupon code with no rebate!

This would've been great for my laptop without an optical drive, but the reviews have me nervous. Doesn't look too reliable for stationary use, let alone frequent travel.

I can second this. The last one took like 6-12 months, and only b/c I emailed them. It suspiciously moved to processing after I contacted them, even though they said it may take that long.

Does this come with software that will allow us to play the BD on a normal BD player?

Does anyone know the real world speed comparisons with this product for reading blu-rays only:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071VP8...C7C4&psc=0

I just want to rip blu-rays to an external hard drive.

this is a 6x reader so definitely slower. not all drives rip at full speed a few do so @12x - but actual rip may depend more on the software (and whether firmware has rip-lock) and takes it down to 6-7x

edit: one report of 48mins on this drive and ~20mins on the BW-16D1X-U would seem to confirm about 2x faster

Thank you, I would be using Make MKV, one more question if you don't mind, when a drive has 2 USB connections, if you have a Macbook Pro with a 3.0 USB input, will one wire power this or similar drives like this Pioneer:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OLZC...C7C4&psc=1

Because on the Macbook Pro the inputs are on opposite sides, so if you need to hook up both, I would need to buy an adapter.

It could all be academic as if your speed estimates are accurate I think I might wait for the Asus to go back on sale.

power should come through the power brick so I don't think it's an issue

Hit the nail on the head. The power requires TWO USB connections on the computer, which means needing an extension cable for many laptop models. My old ASUS portable DVD burner is the same. Hate it.

On the more powerful Asus because it has its own power supply, I mean on this one listed in the thread for $37.

i ended up buying an open box model from B&H for an equivalent pioneer USB 3model. (xd05s). it can power the drive using single usb 3 port and does not need to take up two ports or having to use powerd USB docks. outright price was 60 no tax and no need to deal with asus rebates.
