    Asus - 48x Write/24x Rewrite DVD

    I couldn't be more pleased - this is definitely a high quality CD reader. DVD-ROM drive came in a well packaged box, the drive wrapped and then placed in a foam housing to keep it safe during shipping and handling. There is also an included CD-ROM which contains several piece of software, none of which are required to install the drive and use it. Plug and play. That's pretty much it.

    Dvd Drive

    I wonder if I am the only person that uses dvd drives anymore . It's getting harder to find cases that include them anymore . I must have purchased about 10 of these over the last decades for different builds . To my knowledge they are all going on strong . The price was usually around 20 dollars too

    It's a DVD burner

    I bought this because my parents wanted a cheap replacement optical drive to use in their computer. It serves that purpose, however there are two issues I have with the drive. It's slow to eject and, despite the image, does not have LightScribe.

    Almost everything I needed

    I'm somewhat pleased with my purchase, although I think the computer was a bit pricey. The processor speed is nice and the screen resolution is great. In order to accommodate my needs (multiple storage drives for video editing), I had to purchase a Thunderbolt port and an optical drive. This added another $75 to the purchase price.

    I’ve used the computer for a month now. The keyboard is somewhat difficult to see unless it is bathed in bright light and the touch and feel of the left and right click on the keypad is clunky. I can process large video files quickly and the screen renders a beautiful image.

    Works fine, BUT website shows it as Lightscribe

    It had a lightscribe photo on webpage and still to this day almost A YEAR later, it still does AFTER I brought it to BB attention. I thought I would be getting that feature, replacing my existing LS DVD drive, but I didn't. THIS IS NOT A LIGHTSCRIBE FEATURED DVD player ignore that logo on the photo. There, now YOU know. So, I am back to sharpies to mark and label my supply of perfectly good LightScribe media, but at least it burns well, quickly, and consistently. It is also considerably quieter than my old Lite-On DVD burner drive. 4 Stars only, because of the lack of truth, in their website advertising. FIX the photo folks.

    Great External DVD Writer

    Excellent, but I had to purchase a SATA adapter. After attempting to replace my existing CD writer inside the computer case, I realized that the face would not fit through the front of my computer tower, so I purchased a SATA adapter and connected it to an outlet and the USB connector on the back of my tower. Works like a charm now, and is way faster than the stock version that came with my computer. Plus, it writes "M-Discs" which last hundreds of years, so I'll let you know around 2550 or so if the discs actually last that long.

    DVD Player Review

    The dvd player is small and fits easily virtually anywhere. The dvd tray seems fragile as it starts to bend downward as I search for the center hole with my finger to lift the dvd out of the tray. The remote, in my opinion, is too small for anyone with medium sized hands to utilize in the dark. So far I am happy.

    It works, but the disc door doesn't close fully

    This replaced a Sony unit that was hit by a surge through the Ethernet or HDMI cables from the cable box. It ran every thing well for five + years. I wanted the same unit, but it wasn't being made. This one is close to it. This one has a door that folds down when the disc is loaded. There is a good size gap along the top of the door and the top of the drive box. Quality control was bad on this unit. The unit box was not packed in another box. The box looked like it had slid from one side to the other in the truck. I don't expect this one to last as long.

    on second player in less than 12 months

    our first one crapped out (it did not have the internet capabilities) the blue ray quit working. around Christmas we got another one with internet/wifi abilities and the blue ray on this one is getting glitchy, freezing, and no longer finding certain mobile hotspots. I have kept software up to date and it hasn’t dropped or anything. We will definitely not be purchasing another. It was also expensive for a poor quality product.

    The current model we have BDP-s6700. We may not even buy another Sony. Our Samsung player lasted yeaaaars with streaming abilities and little kids watching dvds/blue ray all the time.

    Great Blu-ray Player

    I am reviewing the Sony - BDP-S6700 Streaming 4K Upscaling Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player. Although I have access to Netflix, Amazon and such I did not want to stop viewing my dvd collection. This is the easiest player to work with and the image is perfect. It is small and light and includes its own remote. I printed the image with the price before going to the store and although the price was higher in-store, the lower price in my online copy was honored. I consider that good service. If you are searching for an inexpensive, quality Blu-ray player; this is it.

    A little shoddy, could be better

    The DVD Player isn't too bad but is shoddly made. The controls for the DVD Slot takes several times to open and close, I had a large fan about 4 feet to the right of the Player and when I would turn the DVD Player on the fan would start working as well. I would have to manually to off the fan. I have since moved the fan. It still works but not as well as I hoped.

    Sure glad I kept the remote from my old one (on the right)! Apparently Panasonic intends this for the kid's room-very little kids-you know, with tiny little hands! And the old one has tv volume buttons!

    A very, VERY, simple player

    I thought I wanted a simple Blu ray player. And this indeed delivered. Delivered great 4k quality. The menu is lightweight with no bloatware. Panasonic commits to bringing updates to it over time. Not flashy in anyway.

    Unfortunately, it was so simple it didn't fit my use case here at home. I wasn't able to use it to access my digital copies of my Blu ray collection. So I am upgrading to the magnolia version of this one.

Excellent price plus I had a coupon, this player can do it all, no need to spend way more than you need to, this is it for me. Pictures included in review.

    Bang for your bucks!!!!!!!!

    Money well spent! For the price I paid for this player it provides just what needed. The picture quality and Dolby atmos puts you definitely into theater mode. The only tiny thing I don’t like about this is the fact it doesn’t have the digital audio output it just have the orange optical. And yes it’s just basic! No Netflix and YouTube here but who needs that anyway. I have plenty of devices to replace for those apps. But all in all I love this player so far and I forgot to say how quiet the player is not like that loud garbage disposal Sony.

    Great product!

    This works great. Besides just being an UHD Blu-Ray player, the front USB port will also work with external hard drives. I rip my DVD and Blu-Ray collection down to hard drive for convenience, and I can attach my USB hard drive to the front port and watch the DVDs and BluRays through this player. The USB port on my TV will *not* support USB hard drives, only flash drives, so this was a nice discovery that this player works with USB hard drives.

    Excellent! No need for fancy features. This works.

    I do not need a fancy player with features my tv or streamers already have. I just need a box to play a disc and pass the signal to my tv and sound system unfiltered and unchanged. This worked perfectly for my HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos, and etc etc. No need to spend money on extra "features" when I only want a disc read and data passed to TV (unfiltered and unchanged). Worked perfectly with my 2021 "top of the line" Samsung model. I recommend. This review is after 3 months of use, and well evaluated.

    Works pretty well...usually.

    This product tends to work pretty well, though I have had a few issues w/them over the years, namely: The authorization string sometimes only gives you the 'non-plus' version, unlike the package says; the external capture hardware (card?) can get very warm/hot and I've sometimes had to shut the system down for a little while (~30 minutes or so usually works) to get it to cool down and work again, though I suppose unplugging its external hardware from the USB port might work just as well; getting support via their customer support phone line seems to be somewhat arduous, at least since they were bought by Corel, though the last time I called they did eventually get back to me and follow up. Also, just FYI, if the hardware (USB capture card) dies, you'll have to get a whole new package, software and all, as they don't sell just the external capture device/hardware separately...or so they told me. This was problematic for me, as I've had a few of the external devices go bad over the years, due to power surges (I suspect) and it's most annoying to have to keep paying full price to buy a whole new package each time when I don't need the software again. All that aside, when it works, it's pretty good.

  • Review by Murrow, 6 out of 10
    Mostly works

    I bought this product and used it to make dozens of clips of various sizes. I paid $39.95 when the software was on sale. It's about as easy to use as it can be, although I wish there was a way to edit multiple clips together instead of just being able to work within a single clip.

    I had a problem in which the first and last 2 seconds of every clip has noticeable degradation in video quality. If someone has a fix for this problem, I would love to know it.

    Installing this product also created a frustrating issue with my DVD drive that prevented me from using it for anything at all -- not just stuff within this software. After a bit of Googling, I found a Microsoft page that acknowledged the problem and walked me through exactly how to fix it.

    The page is here:

    The page reads:

    "This issue may have occurred after one of the following situations... You install or uninstall CD or DVD recording programs."

    "Method 4" is what fixed it for me.

    Keep your memories.

    It did what I needed it to do. I took my old video camera memories to Wal-Mart to have them transfer into DVD, when I got the DVD, I notice that there was allot of time missing. They left out about 30 minutes of memories out per tape. So I both this VHS to DVD equipment to do it my self. It work great, after all the program is loaded into your computer, I just open it, rewind the tape and hit record and left it alone. I like the fact that I can leave it recording and it just stopped by itself when it's done.

    The load went well. However the load had an effect on the registry of Win 7 which corrupted a setting. I spent several hours trying to fix it and in the end had to use the REGEDIT feature to remove a line of code that affected the software identification of CD/DVD drives. I have successfully transfered my first casette to DVD.

    Did the job on the cheap Great

    For $39 bucks great deal. For installation you have to install software requires code that is printed on cd install disc sleeve. A little patience is needed to learn. took about a hour to learn the process. Make sure to get the update. Process did not work until there was a notification window saying download update. After that it was smooth process. You have to hit play on the vcr and click the record button on the pc screen at the same time to start the transfer the great part is you can rip to your hard drive then get it to google photos so you have a cloud copy. I was not interested in the editing capabilities so I won’t get into that. Wish it was more clear that program could rip to hard drive then I wouldn’t have needed to buy blank dvds which I don’t use for anything anymore
