    Does what I need it to for ripping blurays and DVDs to my Plex server. Externalized it once I had no more space

    It reads disks and burns them. What more can you want?

    It works. A little loud when reading Blu-rays and DVDs but what optical drive isn't? Blu-ray support in Windows 10 is a mess but I can't fault Asus for that. I was a bit annoyed that the software that comes with this is several versions outdated which is why I've knocked off stars. You'd think if they're still selling this in MicroCenter they'd be giving you an updated version and not one that is 4 or so versions outdated.
