Do Lite-on BR players support quality scanning using Nero Disk Speed?
If so is its accuracy usable? If not is are there any BR readers that can?
Thanks

Judging on the DH-4O1S (which should be the same drive) the answer is yes but in addition of being slow (4x), the results are way off the chart and very unreliable. It is pretty much a waste of time to scan with them and you won’t be able to compare the results with those generated by a good scanner anyhow …

The best drives for scanning are the LiteON iHESx08 series (scans at 6x) and/or the Samsung SH-B083 (scans at 8x and it is cheaper). In addition to reading Blu-Ray discs, these drives also burn DVDs.

I did a quick search and could only find a LITE-ON iHES208-08 and it looks to be a reader only and its $110 at Newegg. I searched high and low and could not find a Samsung SH-B083 anywhere. Can you supply some more info on these drives and where they can be purchased.
Thanks

iHOS104 and DH-4O1S are using different chipsets. iHOS104 can run disc quality test with CD-DVD Speed but the result is unreliable.

You can find more info on the two drives on the manufacturer’s websites and better still there are several iHES208/SH-B083 reviews around such as:

SH-B083L: http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=27142

As for where to buy them from, I can’t really help you much in that respect since I’m based in the UK not US …
