Summary: This is a great burner. I've had no issues with it what so ever. Burns as it should. I tried the SONY external burner also and I like this one better. It seems to be a little more solidly built than the SONY.
Summary: I put this Blu-ray writer on my Wish List and I received it as a gift for 2010 Christmas. I was needing a way to make backup copies of my purchased Blu-ray movies for the kids because they were constantly losing them or getting them scratched up. I connected it to my Dell Studio 1749 laptop, via my USB hub because I have several other external drives connected simultaneously. I also connected the separate AC power adapter that was included with the Blu-ray writer.
