Albert, ah, thats good to know that the quality of the burning, the electrical, mechanics are more or less the same. Only thing I can tell, is that you get some more media support (like XL-media) and faster burning speeds, but that is nothing I need.
And yes, from what I can tell here in the forums, using sub-standard media or crappy media, is a waste of money, as bluray needs the best media possible for it to be a reliable storage.
Even so, I will not use bluray for saving a lot of data, media is expensive, I am using hard drives and getting high quality CD-R och DVD-R for the small amount of important data I have, personal pictures and stuff like that. Going to get the pictures out in analog format too. That is data I just can not loose to crappy media or other catastrophic things that could happen.
If my hard drives fail, it is not the end of the world, and since I am only using them from time to time in a docking station, failure rates should be low and they should last a long time. It is the only storage option that is flexible, reasonable safe, access to all data at once on the hard drive, fast and just works.
Thanks for the info, I will not get a newer bluray drive, unless I need to buy one anyway, I will keep my 207
