ASUS SBC-04D1S-U USB 2.0 Blu-ray Combo Drive

18 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Over the years, we've taken a look at a number of ASUS's optical drives. While many of them impressed us, others didn't perform nearly as well as we would have liked. Fortunately for ASUS, the SBC-04D1S-U falls into the first category rather than the latter. This compact and versatile Blu-ray combo drive offers good looks, a number of useful features and some of the fastest reading and writing speeds available on a portable unit.
  • Pros: Reads single layer BD-ROM's at 4.8x, Reads BD-R and BD-RE media at 4.8x, Writes to DVD±R media at 8x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD±R DL media at 4x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 8x, Reads DVD±R and DVD±RW media at 8x, Reads DVD±R DL media at 6x, Reads and writes to DVD-RAM media at 5x, Features 24x CD-R and 16x CD-RW writing speeds, Good CD and DVD±R writing quality, Features ASUS's FlextraLink technology, Very compact a...
  • Cons: Questionable writing quality with some DVD±R  DL media, Reads DVD-Videos at only 4x, Cannot set the book type of DVD+R or DVD+RW media, High seek times, Overburns to only 95:10

Asus SBC-04D1S-U

26 January 2010
  • Summary: So we’ve established that Asus’s SBC-04D1S-U won’t get you the same level of performance you’d get with a good-quality internal combo drive such as Plextor’s PX-B320SA. But if an internal drive is not an option, the Asus SBC-04D1S-U will perform its DVD and BD functions adequately while providing a space-saving, portable formfactor—certainly, its most valuable asset.
  • Pros: Small, stylish, portable formfactor; adequate performance.
  • Cons: Inferior performance to an internal drive; high price.

Trevlig Blu-rayspelare

  • Excerpt: När det gäller den här externa Blu-rayläsaren från ASUS är det första man lägger märke till det otroligt lilla och smidiga formatet och den snygga designen
  • Pros: Lätt att använda, Bra program, Snygg
