Bluray writing, LG vs Pioneer?


#1

I’m happy with my current LG, buying another burner because I need to read blurays in my non-burning system. I have to choose between these two: http://www.msy.com.au/194-blu-ray


#2

If you aren’t going to burn with it, I don’t think there is much to choose from between them. Most like the Pioneers for burning.


#3

I have both and for non-burning there is not much difference. But overall I would prefer the Pioneer, so you can anytime switch if you have media which the LG doesn´t like


#4

And the 08er and 09er Pioneer Generation have 10x BD-RE Readspeed.
I dont know about the Mediateks LGs 164x er / 165x er blu ray bunrers.


#5

They both read BD Rom with 12x

The Pioneer reads BD-R with 12x too, the LG with 10x.

I own the Pioneer and it detects discs very fast and has a good error correction.


#6

Sure?

The BH16NS40 read BD-R @12x, can´t believe the BH16NS55 is slower

What I don´t know is the ripping-speed


#7

Not sure, but I read it on their homepage.

BD-R (SL) 10x max.


#8

There are many wrong specs …

OK, it burns -in theory- BD-R SL 16x but in the upper text 14x?

BD-RE SL it can read 10x, not 8x

And I guess it will read BD-R SL at 12x like the BH16NS40


#9

My plan was to retire the LG I already have for reading (into another system), and buy a new one for burning. I’ve done a lot of discs, it must be getting pretty worn out by now.


#10

My experiences were totally different, same with many manufacturers. As long it recognizes and burn all media it should be fine.

If you want a new one for burning I still recommend the Pioneer


#11

The BH16NS55 also read BD-R @12x
