I'm thinking about buying this baby soon for my incoming new laptop (equipped with 2 USB 3.0 ports).
I would like to hear some opinions about this brand, if this model is a re-branded model (Pioneer and the like) and if anyone on this forum has it and/or knows any review on the Internet (I have found no reviews for this model so far). My main concern is the noise when playing movies (I'm planning to use my laptop together with the BR drive as an HTPC). Also I'd like to know if Buffalo drives support OverBurn like LG's (an interesting feature), since 12x BD-R media don't exist yet, AFAIK (at least, in Europe).
The price is very appealing: 269â‚¬ (I think it's fine for a top performance external BD re-writer).
If anyone knows similar models from another brands (supporting 12x writes via eSATA or USB 3.0), please let me know too.
Thank you very much for your help.
