Annoying that know nothings down vote these, its a full sized full speed drive with external enclosure for the price of an internal on sale.

Its big but it performs much faster than the slim models, well worth this price.

Got this 2 weeks ago for same price/ rebate. Asus approved rebate quickly , but now the painful part......waiting 8-10weeks for them to mail it! Other wise good deal for good drive.

Can VLC play 4K Blu-ray if I hook this up to my computer? Or is it better to buy dedicated player like the one at Best Buy for $80, problem is that cheap player don't support Dolby Vision.

This is not a 4K Blu Ray drive.

I believe PowerDVD is the only software capable of playing 4K Blu-ray. And it has very restrictive requirements - intel Kaby lake or newer processors, pioneer bluray drive, hdcp2.2 capable 4K monitors etc. other players - VLC etc, can playback 4K, just not from a UHD Blu-ray Disc, directly

Right now, it is a pain to build a HTPC capable of 4K playback. It is cheaper to just buy a Blu-ray player. There was a LG player listed a few days ago for $80

Could use a couple of these for family...

Remember to send them an email or call them. Waited 3 months after online site said approved for mine last time and ended up having to call them in which they promptly released the rebate.
