Summary: In our admittedly limited tests, we had no problems reading the TW’s BD-RE discs. In fact, taking into account the TW’s relatively low price, its SATA interface, and its superior CD and DVD write speeds, the Triple Writer is the closest thing to something we might buy—not that we’re even considering it.
Pros: SATA interface, better-than-average CD/DVD specs, lowest price.
Cons: Still expensive, limited usefulness, BD burns take a long time.
Excerpt: Billed as a ‘triple writer’, Lite-On’s LH-2B1S provides up to two-speed Blu-ray writing and is compatible with all the major DVD and CD formats. The front of the drive houses three LEDs, denoting disc activity and showing the type of media in use.
Excerpt: Lite-On's LH-2B1S joins the select-but-growing band of Blu-ray drives – a cohort that includes the Pioneer BDR-101A and Plextor PX-B900A. As each drive hits the market, specifications go up and prices drop. A £514 price tag might still be intimidating, but it's a step in the right direction.
Conclusion: LiteOn's first generation Blu-Ray drive has left us with a good overall impression, showing an overall positive behavior in the basic tasks of this review. As a Blu-Ray drive, the device successfully burned all the BD-R and BD-RE media we used in this test. Having compatibility in mind, we tested the burned discs in the other Blu-Ray drives that are currently available on the market.
Pros: SATA interface, Fast CD/DVD Writer, Good CD/DVD Writing Quality, Complete software bundle, Good CD/DVD error correction
Cons: No support for 50GB BD-R media, Compatibility problems with specific MIDs (DVD recordable/rewritable)
Summary: Nous voilà arrivés au bout de ce test. Et après plusieurs jours de tests et d'utilisation intensifs, nous pouvons affirmer que ce graveur LiteON est un produit exemplaire. Il est compatible avec la quasi totalité des médias du marché : CD, DVD, Blu-ray et leurs différentes déclinaisons (CD 8cm, CD-R 21 minutes, CD-R 100 minutes, CD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DL, BD, BD-R/RE, etc..
