Never Misses!

Christopher Chretien, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: I have used other DVD burners (this is the first Blu-Ray burner I ever used), and on many occasions have encountered error conditions which turned the DVD I was burning into a coaster.

Does not record blu-ray for Sony Mini-DV Camcorders

Jasper Walker "J.W.", Amazon
11 January 2012
  • Summary: I did not even pull this out of the box, because if you look very closely at the back of the cover it tells you that Sony Mini-DV cameras can only download standard definition video. I already have a sony VRDMC5 DVDirect burner which does the same thing.

ABSOULUTLY PERFECT ! FAST & SIMPLE

Jonathon, Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: I've read some of the negative reviews here but Sony's VBD-MA1 is perfection (and I'd be the first to pick on Sony). It's right out-of-the-box and operating within minutes and burning fabulous Blu-Ray 1080i HD. Carefully read the SPECS before you buy it.

a way to permanently record your Hi-8 tapes

  • Summary: Finally Sony has developed and released a method to be able to record the Hi-8 tapes from the Sony cameras on a format which is more readily available. I have done some 8 tapes to date, and find the DVD disc very readable on a DVD player, and it works well through a digital projector as well.

Fanstastic Product! I'm Amazed!!

cyber, Amazon
14 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought a Sony HandyCam HDR CX-130 Camcorder, the lowest priced Sony HD Camcorder. It's $150 less than the 160G unit. Well with a 16G Class 4 SD card I can record 2 hours of HD video. I used the $150 I saved to buy this unit. This unit is amazing. It can put my 2 hour HD video on a Blu Ray or DVD.

Sony VBD-MA1

Rey Kangga, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this Sony VBD-MA1 two years ago to use it for my brand new Professional Sony HXR-MC2000 high-definition camcorder. At first, works like a champ using a Sony blank 50gb blu ray. The quality of the video is outstanding (1080i). After using it for three months, it quit on me.

Nice product, but some things you should know...

Leslie, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: In theory, you could burn your camcorder videos to disks for free using your computer and some software, but this requires a bit of tinkering - especially if your camcorder uses magnetic tape as opposed to digital medium such as a hard drive or flash memory.

After 1.5 years the item

Leo, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: After 1.5 years the item crashed... Could not take out a disc. After moderate usage.... The disc brand was Optical Quantum. I burned 75 Optical Quantum disc. Not happy with the overall result beware or weigh expense vs other models. Risk to your reward per se.

this thing rocks

Christopher, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I think it's been discontinued. Too bad. I purchased on the recommendation of a friend, and have loved this product. You can read reviews from people much more savvy than I. But I do know this: if you have a high-res, 1080p camcorder, how else are you going to back up all your movies?
