Summary: I bought this burner for use with my HP Laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit edition. This laptop had an HD-DVD drive installed, I figured this blu-ray burner would work, and it does with flying colors. I use it with Nero 10, the results were perfect. Footage from my Canon Vixia HF-20 is reproduced perfectly, without any loss in bit rate (>24mbps). The picture was so sharp that if I was to touch the monitor, I would have cut myself !
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Quiet, Runs Cool
Summary: Burning a video disc was easy, but burning data was problematic. The only form to make it work was via an utility (TurboUSB), but requires rebooting the PC on every instant you need to burn data. The website never allowed me to download the latest firmware, even that that I registered the drive with the correct serial number. I sent an email to support and included all the information and problema description. Support answered, "Where did you buy the drive?".
