HDCP monitor not needed

Sean C., Newegg
7 January 2008
  • Summary: Yes you do need a video card that is HDCP ready to take full advantage of BluRay or HD-DVD, but as long as your monitor can support 1280x720 and up you don't have to worry about your monitor.
  • Pros: Does what it says.
  • Cons: maybe a bit slow and pricy

Chuck....

Richard M., Newegg
17 November 2007
  • Summary: chuck, you should look into linux distros, they've been developing 64 bit support nearly twice as long as MS, i havent looked into blu-ray specific specs, but there is something called Chainsaw linux which is geared towards graphical and audio apps. ALTERNATIVE OS's ARE WORTH LOOKING INTO.
  • Pros: works just fine for me but i sit in front of a keyboard for 10-12 hours a day
  • Cons: lil bit pricey

What else you'll need

Anonymous, Newegg
6 September 2007
  • Summary: Before purchasing this, BE SURE your computer and monitor are up to the task. You'll need a dual-link DVI video card AND monitor, as well as a good dual link DVI cable. I think many end users don't understand this and give the drive a bad review, when in-fact they don't understand what's required...
  • Pros: Well built, as far as Blu-Ray is concerned the price is about the going rate....a simple question of supply and demand for those who think it's overpriced.
  • Cons: No light-scribe capability, slow burns (comparatively). Many people still have beige colored cases, would have been nice to see a beige face-plate included.

Liteon LH-2B1S

Anonymous, Newegg
5 May 2007
  • Summary: I don't use it for writing, only for reading and playing Blu-ray movies. Lite-On has promised a firmware update to allow writing to dual-layer Blu-ray discs.
  • Pros: It's a Lite-On! The best Blu-ray drive that Newegg sells at this point in time.
  • Cons: Problems writing using SATA II interface on Intel 975 chipset motherboards (works fine when used with SATA I). Get the latest motherboard bios if you want to use it as a writer.

Blu-ray ma non solo

DoloresClaiborne, Ciao
17 March 2012
  • Summary: L'LH-2B1S è un masterizzatore interno Blu-ray affidabile e facile da usare, anche se la velocità di soli 2x con i dischi registrabili BD-R e i riscrivibili BD-RE (per riempirne uno interamente impiega circa tre quarti d'ora) lo penalizza rispetto ad altri prodotti della concorrenza tuttavia più...
