I only own a laptop, and would like to invest in a Blu-ray burner. I’ve been looking at drives, and think i’ve got it narrowed down, but i’m having trouble finding an enclosure.
Is usb 2 reliable enough for a Blu-ray burner? I have always preferred Firewire for its faster sustained speed, especially in something like burning optical media. However, i’m not sure if i’ve just surmised this or if it actually has some merit.
So my question is two-fold: Is USB 2.0 “good” enough for Blu-ray burning? It’d be a shame to burn coasters of BD media because the buffer ran out But I assume it should be fast enough, right?
Would it be better to use Firewire 400? Provided I could find firewire in an SATA-enabled enclosure.
Are there popular enclosures that people use for Blu-ray burners? I usually buy my gadgetry off of Newegg but the reviews for the sata/firewire/5.25" enclosures are not stellar.
