I am planning to buy soon my first blu-ray writer, which I intend to use for data archiving. My problem is that I read a lot of bad reviews about the poor quality on the new burners and also, in my country (Romania), the offer of burners available for sale is very limited. Tests and ideas I found on club myce forum are indeed helpful and, after a lot of reading I am inclining to go for Pioneer BDR-209EBK (http://www.shop4pc.ro/bluray-writer-pioneer-bdr209ebk-bdxl-sata-3d-negru-retail-pack-p-40123.html), but it looks like every unit available today have it’s shortcomings, so I can’t be very sure if this is the right decision at this point.
That being said, I want my new internal Blu-Ray burner to have (ideally):
- Importance 1: Very good write quality for blu-ray discs and dvd’s
- Importance 2: Possibility to write M-DISCs
- Importance 3: Possibility to verify the quality of the recordings (using Nero DiscSpeed for example)
Other then that I do not care of speed, noise, price, looks, lightscribe, brand or anything else.
Here are a list with all blu-ray burners available in my area. Which do you think is best for wrting blu-rays, M-DISC blu-rays and dvd’s at best quality?
Any comments or ideas are welcome. Thank you.
