    I haven't even plugged this in yet. I'm not worried about that. What I AM fuming about is that I bought this almost specifically because it was an ASUS with A STAND! I plan on leaving this on my desktop full-time, and the stand was a very attractive option. So, imagine my irritation when I open the package and there is no stand. According to the instruction sheet, the stand comes with one model (that's EXACTLY the same otherwise) and the other doesn't. Also, powering the unit requires 2 free USB ports. FYI: NO STAND!! I am almost thinking about returning it, but we'll see.

    this was very easy to use... I just unpacked it and started using it. This lays flat on the table which I am not a fan of.. I think there is another model that comes with a stand . I thought this one did but there was nothing .. at first I thought it was missing then I think it saw where it only came with a certain model. Other than that it works great.

    I have used an Asus cd/dvd writer in the pass. This one was to slow and sometimes unresponsive. I returned for an lg and it is better and slimmer.
