Slim & Fully external (H: 1.5cm x W: 13.5cm x D: 13.5cm) - This product is connected to laptop / PC or MAC via 2 USB cables, one of which is the power supply needed to run the device so no mains cable required making this extremely portable and reduces bulk. The device has a yellow light indicator to show when it's connected and flashes whilst burning or reading the disc. Once burning is complete, the disc tray self ejects and yellow light indicator returns to solid black state.
I highly recommend this to any fellow techies in search of a Blu-Ray Burner.
I plugged it directly into USB 2 & 3 ports, bypassing any hubs or extension leads to eliminate any potential data transmission issues. The power lead was also used in several power sources.
I tried Verbatim, Panasonic & TDK Blu-Ray rewritable discs, & I tried the deck with Windows 8.1x32 bit, Windows 8.1x64 bit & finally Windows 7 Pro 64 bit platforms. In each case, the Blu-Ray discs struggled to be seen by the unit, & when I tried to move data onto them, the burner locked at 28% every time. The deck also made a loud clicking noise, suggesting that it was faulty.
It did, however, read DVD's. I must admit to being perplexed by this, as it seems that the problem is simply with Blu-Ray discs. I contacted BOSITOOLS who supplied the unit (very quickly, too!) & spoke with one of their staff who was very helpful. We discussed the problem & agreed that the unit was faulty. I returned it to them & they sent a replacement which was also faulty: this time the drive worked OK, but the drawer wouldn't open manually. Another replacement has been delivered & this one is OK***, I would even say that it's fast & completes system images in half the time my two other Blu-ray drives take: the issue is that any potential buyer can't be certain of receiving a working unit & could end up with several faulty ones, with all the associated hassle of posting them back to the supplier.Read more ›
We I have to say after a CONSIDERABLE period of time I did get this drive to be recognised by my Windows 8 system and it has written onto a DVD with some photo backup files, not tried it yet with a Blu Ray.
The drive is VERY fussy about what USB port you connect it to. My system has mostly USB 3 sockets but I got this as it was ideal for occasional back up of large video files etc. I haver a PCI E four port USB 2 card in the system and ALL my other drives, mice, keyboards etc all run without any problem, but this drive would not be recognised when plugged into this. My drives are regularly updated but to be 100% sure I checked for any updates, no ! all were up to date. I did try the two front USB 2 ports and it worked but as the power & data leads were so short I had to hold the drive whilst testing.
Eventually got a USB 3 hub and connected this to a USB 3 port on the back of tower and this appeared to work OK. As I said above what a fuss.
The drive was recognised as a MATSHITA Panasonic drive and wrote a DVD of approx. 4 Gb of date in under 10 minutes.
Again as I said above the cables are too short for use on a tower system unless your tower has USB 2 ports at the bottom of the tower base, so it's ideally suited for a laptop.
Never has a slim line external drive prior to this and I was disappointed at the flimsy nature of the external casing. It flexes and does not always allow the draw to click in place.
I am using 'Burn Aware Free'. an 'open source' burning software, to produce my disks. Not got around to getting my Blu Ray player software yet. but intend to try 5K Player.
It does work ...... but not for all. Would not suggest this drive for a PC novice !
All in all this is a pretty crap unit. I wouldn't recommend it even for such a cheap price.
UPDATE: I purchased a new much better quality USB cable and the unit seems to be working much better. The USB cable supplied is of very poor quality and my PC just didn't like it and as previously staed, the connection used to drop out during burns. I've done a few burns now using the new cable and no fails so far. I'll do a few more before I change my rating though
