This review is from: LG Black 16X Blu-Ray BDXL SATA Internal rewriter with 3D Playback, Model BH16NS40
Pros: Plug & Play. I use Nero software for BD burning and CHEAP BD 25 disks to burn data and movies to. Not one single coaster or error in more than 3 spindles burned. (About 150 disks. Using Optical Quantum BD 25's.)
It takes about 1.5 hours to burn a full BD 25 movie to disk with data checking.
Barely hear it running while burning.
Burns DVD MoDisks and HIgh quality Verbatim BDs equally well.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I got the Retail package which came with everything to hook it up and get started.
Just Google for a FREE BD Movie playing software program to get going.
It's not LG or the burner's fault that it doesn't play BD Movie disks out of the box.
Keep in mind that most ALL DVD and BD drives are Sata I drives and NOT Sata II or III.
Difference in speed will only be noticed while burning a disk in most cases. Not so much in transferring data from the Optical drive to a USB stick or HDD.
Pros: Full Speed on all 4 ports. Easy install. This card was GREAT for the first 2 months!! Hence my earlier positive review.
Cons: The 4th port FAILED after only 3 months!!!
Other Thoughts: Will be contacting customer support at Star to see about a replacement!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy installation. FULL SPEED on all ports with all 4 ports filled and in use.
Other Thoughts: Unlike the cheaper x1 cards, this card has FULL SPEED on all ports with four external drives hooked up and running on them. The ports on this card benched at the same speed as my Intel Asus Motherboard USB 3.0 ports.READ FULL REVIEW
