LG BE06 External Blu-Ray Burner

maximum pc
20 August 2008
  • Summary: While there’s something to be said for the convenience of an external drive with a USB 2.0 interface, this is offset by the BE06’s gargantuan size. The enclosure is nearly 3 inches longer and an inch wider than its internal brethren—and $100 more expensive. Blu-ray is a tough enough sell as it is without tacking on this drive’s compromises. We’re unimpressed.
  • Pros: Good BD-R and DVD-R write times.
  • Cons: Huge; pathetic BD-RE writes; not worth the price.

LG BE06 review

Techworld

  • Summary: Blu-ray isn't tumbling in price just yet, and the LG BE06 isn't exactly cheap. The LG BE06, though, is slightly more expensive than its main rival from Buffalo BRHC-6316U2 . Admittedly, the difference amounts to just a few pounds, and even given the increased speed of the Buffalo BRHC-6316U2 we prefer the LG for its generally slicker look and features. In our opinion, this is the best choice for those seeking a capable external Blu-Ray drive.

  • Summary: LG's BE06 is a good drive for a reasonable price — we'd imagine the market for external Blu-ray writers is quite small, but if you have the need, check this one out.
  • Pros: Comprehensive format support, Writes up to 6x on Blu-ray, Reasonably priced
  • Cons: The device is large, USB 2.0 interface, 6x Blu-ray media not available, Requires a power brick

LG Super Multi Blue BE06

PC Pro
13 May 2008
  • Excerpt: LG's dual-format drive is ideal for those who invested in HD-DVD before Blu-ray romped to victory in the HD wars. The external drive will read both of the previously competing formats, as well as writing to Blu-ray at an industry-leading 6x speed. Older formats are no problem, either, and the drive will also write to blank DVD and CD media.
