Ok took the plunge and bought one as they are cheap(ish) on eBay at the moment. Have burnt a few BD-R discs at x4 and so far so good, no coasters and the burns all verified fine. I also ran a transfer rate test (TRT) and all seemed good.

For those who are interested here is some info:


Nero InfoTool 8.0.1.100

Thanks for this. It’s a tough choice when no other experience is offered but there are so many variables - your computer, your media, plus the fact that I’ll continue to believe that every single part offers a chance for an assembly line’s ‘lemon’.

There’s no experience like your own. Unfortunately! Thanks for this and I hope you’ll post more results in the future.
