Buying blu-ray this week

Buying a blu-ray writer this week and have had a good look around lots of forums etc but have yet to commit to any one although a LG or the latest NEC looks good…

To anyone who has or is thinking of getting one which one would you get at this moment in time… (I know different functions/write speed etc will suit different people but i want a general opinion of whats considered to be the best just now)

For me write speed is more important with blu-ray than it was with dvd simply because of size…

hmm maybe not as much people got these drives that i thought anyway im thinking of getting the latest pioneer the BDR-203

All the major 8x BD burner, Pioneer BDR-203, LG BH08, and Panasonic SW-5584 will write at 8x about the same, ie 13-15 minutes for a full 25GB and 32+ mins for 50GB.

I would also consider Blu-ray read speed as one of the purchase decisions. Unfortunately LG is behind in this area since it only reads at 4.8x while the other two, Pioneer and Panasonic read at 8x.

The other consideration is Blu-ray media support and ability to overspeed. As far as I know, Panasonic SW-5584 and its clones (Sony BWU-300S, I-O Data BRD-SP8B etc), is the poorest. It burns 8x on a very short list of media including MEI-RA1 (Panasonic/Sony 6x BD-R) and MEI-RB1 (6x BD-R DL 50GB). Meanwhile, LG and Pioneer can overspeed 2x, 4x, and 6x media very well. LG actually supports and overspeed media very well compared to Pioneer and I know the LG BH08 can overspeed 2x Verbatim BD-R (VERBATIMa) at 8x.

Sorry i meant PIONEER
So out of the ones mentioned which would you go with
Pioneer BDR-203, LG BH08, and Panasonic SW-5584 (copy and paste this time lol)

[/QUOTE]Corrections: Specs from LG BH08LS20 says reading all BD media is at 8x max, except BD-RE SL/DL 4.8x. However, it appears some media are read at 4.8x and some at max 8x. For example:

4.8x BD-ROM DL (specs says 8x)
4.8x BD-R SL vs 8x BD-R SL
4.8x BD-R DL vs 8x BD-R DL

I don’t know why though.

Well since you said speed is more important for you, here I throw comparisons from some popular media. All data gathered from YSS website and some from CDFreaks reviews.

[B]Red[/B] = faster

If we strictly based on the above table:

  • [li] LG BH08[/li]more media is supported at 8x max, faster 8x BD-R write speed (by 1 minute), faster BD-R DL read speed (by more than 10mins, but not all BD-R DL media), ala42 MCSE support (here) and firmware crossflash available.
    [li] Pioneer BDR-203BK[/li]average media support, average read/write speed, but faster 8x BD-RE read speed, no crossflash/MCSE support yet (?).
    [li] Panasonic SW-5584[/li]poorest media support, but faster at 6x BD-R write and 8x BD-R DL write (by 3:35 min), no crossflash/MCSE support yet (?)

Conclusion: which one would you choose? I think I would go with LG BH08.

wow thanks i can see how much you have put into that post mate
Now i can compare without going all over the place
The Panasonic was out it was between the other 2 and i was swinging towards the pioneer but now im having a big rethink…

Sorry to late to edit but i cant seem to find the LG BH08NS20 anywhere in the uk apart from ebay and i dont want to purchase one there with the price and any warranty issues
If anyone knows where to get one in the uk let me know otherwise as the money is burning a hole in my pocket its the pioneer for me lol

If you can’t find LG BH08NS20, you can get Buffalo BR-H816FBS which is its OEM.

zaina, very nice data you have formulated.

May we use this (or you can make a separate posting) and maybe we can sticky it to give everyone a great reference on what speed drives can burn certain media. Then we can update as needed.

Thank you

[QUOTE=zaina;2271144]Well since you said speed is more important for you, here I throw comparisons from some popular media. All data gathered from YSS website and some from CDFreaks reviews.

[B]Red[/B] = faster

If we strictly based on the above table:

  • [li] LG BH08
    [/li]more media is supported at 8x max, faster 8x BD-R write speed (by 1 minute), faster BD-R DL read speed (by more than 10mins, but not all BD-R DL media), ala42 MCSE support (here) and firmware crossflash available.
    [li] Pioneer BDR-203BK
    [/li]average media support, average read/write speed, but faster 8x BD-RE read speed, no crossflash/MCSE support yet (?).
    [li] Panasonic SW-5584
    [/li]poorest media support, but faster at 6x BD-R write and 8x BD-R DL write (by 3:35 min), no crossflash/MCSE support yet (?)

Conclusion: which one would you choose? I think I would go with LG BH08.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=madmax;2271341]wow thanks i can see how much you have put into that post mate
Now i can compare without going all over the place
The Panasonic was out it was between the other 2 and i was swinging towards the pioneer but now im having a big rethink…[/QUOTE]The above comparison was for LG BH08 frimware 1.00 and Pioneer BDR-203 firmware 1.05. A member posted link to BDR-203 “Supported media list” for the newer firmware 1.10 which support more BD media (according to Changelog)

The new conclusion is, both Pioneer and LG have very good media support now. :slight_smile:

thanks i cant find the LG or the Buffalo oem version in the uk but will give it another day and if no i will just get the pioneer on monday…

Last time when dvd drives came out i bought a sony drx when they were £270.00 then within a year or so they were all around the £30 mark
I just want one to mess around with now and when they reach the £30 mark then you can get as much as you want…

I have been selling a lot of computer stuff on ebay to get the money so i might as well get one or the other now

thanks for your help zaina and i will have a look at the new media support with the new firmware

Thanks Zaina, very useful info.

Bought the PIONEER as i was getting stressed out looking for an LG in the uk and anyway with spending that amount of money wanted to go to a well known retailer that i wont have any rma worries should anything go wrong.
In a year or two it will be out of date anyway and we will all have 4 or 5 drives at about £20-30 quid each just like it was with DVD drives :iagree:
