  • Excerpt: Just a couple of years ago, 1080p TVs were a thing of miracles and if you were to mention that you had a Blu-Ray drive, you would be considered a sort of miniature deity. Well, maybe not that extreme, but the fact still remains that in order to get your hands on a BD player you either had to get a PS3 or wait and spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get it from other manufacturers.

Lite-On iHOS104 4x BD-ROM

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for an easy and affordable way to play Blu-ray movies on your computer, you really can't go wrong with the Lite-On iHOS104. Using the bundled software, this read-only drive played all of the Blu-ray movies I had on hand, including those protected by BD+ and with BD-Live enabled features. The iHOS104 also did fairly well in our transfer rate tests, reading BD-ROM's as well as BD-R and BD-RE media at 4x.
  • Pros: Reads BD-ROM's and BD-R/RE media at 4x, Reads DVD-ROM's at 8x, Reads DVD±R, DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 8x, Low seek times, Serial ATA interface, Includes CyberLink PowerDVD with TrueTheater HD technology, Includes extra bezel, Nice looking design, Affordably priced
  • Cons: Reads CD's at only 32x, Only a 2MB buffer, Does not support DVD-RAM

  • Conclusion: With all these in mind , the choice is yours as always. With the optical drive market to be stalled, it's nice to see LiteOn releasing new drives, especially when these retail online for about $70 - a reasonable price for a BD-ROM if you ask me. For those who want the ability to playback Blu-Ray content on their computers, media center PC's, and HTPC's but who don't necessarily want to buy a Blu-Ray writer or swallow the cost of a writer, a Blu-Ray reader could be an...

TEST: Lite-on iHOS104: Blu-ray, helt enkelt

PC World
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Vi kan fastslå at brenning av Blu-ray-plater ikke har slått an. Bakgrunnen for dette er variert. Prisene for brennere og ikke minst plater har hele tiden vært høye, samtidig som mange nok får sine behov for ren sikkerhetskopiering eller arkivering dekket av vanlige dvd-plater.
  • Pros: Gjør det den er designet for å gjøre.
  • Cons: Ingen spesielle.
