works perfectly even on cheap media
Pros: decent price solid burns everytime. 2 or 3 coasters with cheap Optical Quantum Media out of 250+. (10 for $10 bd-r e b a y) verbatim support dual layer support LTH support dvd's burn fast as well
Cons: none so far owned for 3 months still working perfectly.
Overall Review: sony looks to be the one to buy BD burners from. this drive works. period. i tried lite-on i tried LG i've tried em all. they all break or need to be RMA'd. this drive is the only BD burner i have burned nearly 250 BD-R/BD-R DL with and its still going strong. get yourself this drive with some imgburn goodness or dvdfab, buy some cheap media or verbatim and burn away!
don't listen to the VEEDIOTS who neg review this drive!
Pros: quiet supports LTH discs supports cheap Optical Quantum Media reliable (2-3 coasters from 250+ BD-R discs) NO SOFTWARE INSTALL (yes this is a plus) cheap
Cons: NONE quit complaining about no software included. this is a good thing, get your own you don't want PowerDVD anyways its garbage.
Overall Review: don't listen to these VEEDIOTS on here who neg review this drive because of lack of sata cable and software. seriously? i have 100+ sata cables laying around and you don't want PowerDVD anyways trust me it doesn't work instead try TOTAL MEDIA THEATER 5. this drive works perfectly. burns quick everytime. reads BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-R DL perfectly. everytime. this is the drive to get so quit complaining about the lack of software and cables IT'S OEM PEOPLE WAKE UP.
