Blu-Ray Drive Model Number/Where to buy

Hello Again All -

Having purchased a version of the G75VW (the BBK5 version) that did not ship with the Blu-Ray drive, I was wondering if it was possible to buy it from ASUS, along with any software/keys/etc that might be required.

Does anyone know if this is possible and if so, where I might go about getting it? 🙂

Thanks,
Jason

I'm curious about this too. I did look up the Asus eStore and there is an assortment of drives that don't come with a bezel. I wonder which one is compatible, and if the dvd-rom bezel will slip over it - Also, would installing the drive void the warranty?

it would not void the warrenty because the screw you have to remove to open the drive is in the user accessible area.

Nice! What about the bezel. was it easy to replace? -- If you even bothered with it.

the bezel was super easy.
dont be afraid to tug on it. there are two tabs on either side that snap it.

looks exactly as it did...i just wish it said Blu Ray on the bezel now 😞

Hmm.... okay I'm buying that. Thanks for the info! A blu ray logo would look nice there, but I don't think I mind the sleeper look either.

Got the UJ-240 as suggested. Just installed it. Probably took no more than 5 minutes. One screw under the main panel, pull it out. unscrew the adapter on the old dvd-rom and transfer to the new drive, press down the tiny tabs on either side of the bezel and transfer over, then shove it back in and screw it down. Very simple!

Downloaded Corel WinDVD Pro 11 trial and threw in a disc from Rome Season 1 and works like a charm. Looks great! Still trying to figure out what blu-ray software to actually purchase. Other then that, I'm very satisfied. Only thing left to do on this BestBuy G75 that I can immediately think of is replacing the monitor to one of the 3D LED capable ones, but I can live without that.
