Brilliant external burner! This drive has been tested and tried over the past month and hasn't had a problem. Even capable of reading back some previously unreadable discs (damage or old age).

Starting with BD-R/RE, the drive seems only to be limited by the speed at which your hard disk can read the data. Good quality burns all the way to 4x. It can read back these discs at an impressive 12x on the outer rim.

DVD+/-R/RW: High quality burns even at the high 16x. It seems to have no degradation in burn quality up to 8x, above some more errors come in but nothing extreme (maybe 2-4% more error rate).

CD-R/RW: Good a fast burn speed, low error count again even on disks which appear damaged. Fast burning, limited mainly by the media used.

All in all, a very capable drive. Make sure you get USB 3 as it is worth it, especially when reading back BD-R's as otherwise the drive will limit itself (can't remember the figure but I think it is around 4x).

One drawback, there is a blue light on the front which blinks when reading back media. Is slightly annoying when watching films, but can be fixed by good placement.

This writer is rely good will defiantly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a very good writer the only thing that lets it down is that it comes with a two pin plug which can be annoying but you can get a adapter from any good DIY store,

This is what you need if you wnat true 3D and Dolby PL support. It's fast, quiet and very reliable. I would highly recommend this to both Windows and Mac user alike, although the supplied software is for Windows only.

The problem I have with this unit is the software it will not update the program unless you are using windows 8 ( which is a waste of time and money) it will not play any blue ray which is region free apart that its a great product

Surprisingly large.
Uses supplied external power supply ... didn't use the twin USB cable to take power from laptop as I'd expected.
Overall it's okay if it was 50% cheaper.
