This review is from: LG Black 16x Blu-Ray BDXL SATA Internal rewriter with 3D Playback, Model BH16NS40
Pros: Bought this drive for the sole purpose of burning/testing M-DISC media. NewEgg needs to update the Tech Spec, but I confirmed with LG that on their spec sheet that this drive, in fact, is "M-DISC READY" and not "M-DISC SUPPORTED". The key difference is that M-DISC Ready drives Write to M-Disc media and M-Disc Supported means it can read the disc. This is a silly marketing ploy as any written data to M-Discs are 100% DVD-R compatible and follow ISO standards so ANY DVD Reader will able to access the content of these discs which has a rock-like material substrate that will not degrade at all. Blu-Ray (SL) of 25GB on these M-Discs will really be the way to go to preserve important archival video and photos for personal use.
LG Spec Sheet:
Cons: None at this time. Quiet drive and make sure you update the firmware to get the current write strategies for media.
Other Thoughts: NewEgg please update the Spec sheet to include "M-DISC 4X CLV" on the Write side of the list.READ FULL REVIEW
