Summary: I bought one of these Pioneer blu-ray writers to install into the free DVD bay of my 2009 Apple Mac Pro computer. After installation and booting I tried this drive out using Toast 10 as Mac's OS X doesn't natively work with blu-ray.
Summary: It works. What more can you say? I have tested it on CDs, DVDs and RiDisc 4 speed BDs. It takes about an hour to write a full data BD at four speed. Those are the fastest blank BDs you can get at the moment at a sensible price.
Summary: Worked well from set up which was simply "plug and play" Computer recognised the Pioneer Blu-Ray and everything seems to work very quietly and smoothly. Have watched Blu-ray movies without any bother having downloaded Cyberlink Power DVD 10 on a 30 day trial. Also burned a CD very quickly indeed.
Summary: I already own a high end Pioneer Blue Ray player, if you have a decent pc hooked up to your tv via HDMI buy this drive, add a good blu ray player software package and there is no difference in quality of picture or sound, I'm running in to a pioneer LX6090 via a Pioneer AV reciever.
Summary: After doin hours and hours of research on which blu-ray writers were on the market i decided to go with this beast and it was a great decision. I found numerous sites showing that this drive was up there with the best burners and was significantly faster than other drives or on parr with them namely...
Summary: Drive arrived swiftly, ordered on the 27/12 and it arrived on the 31/12 (supersaver delivery) so thanks Amazon for the great service and price. As the item description states the drive is sold bare, it comes in a plain brown box with some paperwork explaining the drive spec etc.
Summary: Arrived through mail as advertised. Installed it in my PC in less than 10 minutes, replacing a standard DVd/cd burner. Works absolutely flawlessly with Verbatim BD-R and BDre and also with INTENSO discs. Have made my own BLU-RAYs from my HD camcorder footage..awesome quality picture on HD plasma.
Summary: I have been using this burner for about 6 months now with great results every time. I have played Bluray films and it handels them fine. I have backed up and copied all my videos of the family into HD format and recorded them onto Bluray discs.
