howdy guys, :cool:

now bdxl are startet which need “again” a new burner. :Z
i’m not sure to start with bd-r 25gb. :confused:
at the moment i have a factory sealed “PIONEER BDR-S05XLB (RETAIL MADE IN JAPAN)”.
currently i don’t need the capacity of blu-ray.
i favorite cd-r, dvd+r and dvd-ram and for the future the next mainstream
established generation to use it for the next 10 years. :flower:

maybe it’s better to wait until it will developed the next established generation.
it’s better to skip blu-ray, 25/50/xl?

similar to the quality of cd and dvd blank media shows the blu-ray blank media
very high error values. at the moment for me like junk. :eek:

next point, there are no consumer-burner-hardware to check the jitter.
i was a long time still waiting for that.

i know you don’t have a crystal ball to see the future,
but what do you think about that? :bigsmile:

What do you want with the 205XL when you dont want use BD for burning??
A bit illogical to my understanding.

Question you should ask yourself:
What do I want to do with a BD burner?

Is it just for the geekness or do I want to use it properly?

yes i know, that’s why i wrote…it’s better to skip blu-ray, 25/50/xl?

it’s only a hunting trophy.
a bd-r 205 made in japan is very very hard to find in germany.

and the question was “what do you think, are the 25/50gb blu-ray a dead birth?”

I’m not convinced that error reads on blu ray media is worth bothering about. Do your disks play properly, yes or no? Do a TRT scan if you must, then check it again sometime later, but stop fussing and fuming about this stuff.

If you’re really worried about data loss, wait until the M-discs are released in 25gb format. :slight_smile: Those should be about $18 a disk, or more.

Blu ray burning is a niche market. It will never get very popular, due to the cost of the media, the small sizes of data that can be put on them and the ever increasing opinion that optical storage is a thing of the past. Once the price of SSD’s and portable flash comes down to a reasonable level for ~100gb size, optical data storage is going down the tubes in a hurry. We’ve already seen a drastic change in storage habits for many when regular hdds were cheap, and that will come back once hdd production recovers to previous levels.

So what does that leave? Blu ray video. If you want backups of blu ray video on more than one type of storage, blu ray disks are useful. Maybe not completely necessary, but it gives you a way to store video that you may have compressed to smaller sizes. If you lose a storage hdd and haven’t been too careful in backing it up, the blu ray disks are one relatively quick means of getting everything running again.

You can find the 205 MIJ on ebay.

@ chef

only in your hot wet dream. :bigsmile:


#7

Nope.

I found some, so why do you can’t??


#8

ok, then it’s no problem for you to show me your finds, right?


#9

Why don’t you search yourself?

90% of all 205 will be MIC, the rest is MIJ.

you just have to ask the seller, that is the key to success

BTW, how many do you want to buy?


#10

i did chef i did…:bigsmile:

i thought as much about your yada yada yada :cool:
sorry. but you have absolut no idea… :clap: forget it! chef

thats why i’m wrote “205 made in japan is very very hard to find in germany”.

i was looking for the last 12-15 months.
newly i bought a carton of 5 “PIONEER BDR-S05XLB (RETAIL MADE IN JAPAN)”. one for me and 4 to sell.
that to find was very very hard and took a long long time.

Lame, what you answer here. Only lame.

It’s now obvious that you only bought them to make money out of it.

Her is one example, found in 5 mins: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Pioneer-Blu-ray-Writer-BDR-S05XLB-Burner-Drive-12X-/320611641349
