5.0 out of 5 stars Great Drive, 8 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony BD-5300S-0B 12x Internal Blu-ray RW (Accessory)
I work as a videographer, therefore being able to burn discs to deliver to clients is a pretty important requirement of mine. My original Blu Ray burner gave up after a particularly busy work period last year so as the new year is warming up, I thought it best to get a replacement.

I decided to go with Sony, hoping that a drive from such a reputable brand might last a little longer than my last one, and so far so good!

With a 12x write speed, it blew me away compared to my last drives 4x speed, both reading and writing are very quick. Installing it was no hassle at all it was a straight swap with the old drive, booted up my machine running Windows 7 and it recognised the new hardware right away, did a quick bit of automatic instillation and it was done!
Since installing the drive I've written standard DVD's, Dual layer DVD's, and of course Blu Rays (Single layer) and have had no trouble so far.

For the price and considering the other drives on the market at the time of purchase in Jan 2012, I'm happy I've made the right choice.

AJS (London) says:
Sony have not manufactured any of their burners for some years. All are sourced from lesser manufacturers and rebranded.

All media burners, whatever the brand, are considered as limited-life devices and thus not built to last for a number of years. If DVD writers can be bought for £15-18 today when they would at one time cost well in excess of £100, it is obvious that build quality has to suffer. Blu-ray drives are no different but as they sell in relatively small numbers, their price is that much higher.
