  Special Notes:
E-Green (Energy Green Engine)
The innovative drive E-Green Engine technology features an E-Green Mode that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to help conserve energy - helping the environment by decreasing CO2 emissions and reducing the depletion of trees

OTS (Optimal Tuning Strategy)
With OTS, the drive will perform a test before really burning which generate the optimal burning strategy automatically for the best burning quality.

E-Hammer allows you to permanently delete the data on writable disc (CD-R and DVD-R) formats.
Once the data is deleted, it cannot be recovered or restored, and the optical drive will not be able to read the disc.

This ensures data security, eliminates the hassle of scratching your old discs, and conforms with our commitment to environmental protection.

AVRS (Auto Vibration Reducing System)
The AVRS technology is designed to minimize the vibration caused by the spindle motor and resonance between components as well as the drive and PC cases.

AVRS is designed to reduce vibration and noise induced by unbalanced mass of rotating machinery.

With AVRS, ASUS DRW-24B1 provides high readability and playability.

Great drive - 06/29/2011 15:32:30

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]

As others have posted drive is silent when burning. As silent as can be when drive is reading.

Not really a weakness because it could be the discs I use but takes longer then my LG burner to recognize discs. Then again this is mesured in seconds so not a big deal.

As a bonus that I'm not sure if its always included was nero 10 oem. Its not full version but you do get the essentials which in reality is what most people use anyhow.

Completely silent! - 05/22/2010 00:43:32

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]

Totally silent drive during burning and loading of discs. I previously suffered through the incredible noise of a pioneer dvd burner thinking it was somewhat normal to make a ton of whirring noise during loading and burning. Then, I installed this drive and I had to check to see if it was actually burning because there was exactly zero audible sound coming from it. Fantastic drive!


If you want a quiet drive look no further than this gem.
