LiteON eHBU212 USB3 external BD-RE review (18)

MyCE
14 August 2011
  • Conclusion: This is the first optical USB3 drive that MyCE has tested and I can say that the result is impressive. As expected there is some room for improvement, but I’ll give some more info about that later. The eHBU212 is a very good drive, it’s fast for audio extraction and also reading data CDs. When it come to DVDs the drive is able to reach 16x speed, and also the eHBU212 has no riplock. The Liteon eHBU212 can produce very good burns on CD-R and CD-RW media.
  • Pros: USB3 Drive, ON/OFF switch on the back, The drive is not riplocked, Very good CD-R/RW burn quality, Excellent DVD+R burn quality, and very good with DVD+RW and DVD+R DL media, Very good burn quality burns on all –R media, Fast audio extraction, You can change the booktype on all +R media, Good community support here at MyCE, Very good build quality, Lightscribe
  • Cons: Burn speeds weren’t as expected with our test media, Very aggressive settings on Smart-Burn technology, reduces the burn speed.

  • Conclusion: Although this is at least £30 more expensive than Lite-On's internal equivalent, the eHBU212 has exceptional copying speeds thanks to its USB 3.0 connectivity  and the generous Cyberlink software lets you watch 3D Blu-ray movies with ease.

  • Excerpt: External optical drives tend to cost rather more than their internal counterparts. That’s borne out by this drive, with almost identical capabilities to the Lite-On iHBS212 and iHBS112, but with a recommended retail price almost twice that of the internal versions, to provide the more portable convenience.
