Noisy

Gary K., Newegg
27 February 2012
  • Summary: Lost a bit of $$ on this from the return to NE, especially when a bundled item cannot be returned as well.
  • Pros: Believe it was malfunctioning from the arrival so other than it being able to read discs, none
  • Cons: Attempted burning on two different systems (64 bit 7) using both built in 7 burner and Nero and could not get successful burns. It would read anything I put in it though. The drive was also louder than I expected when accessing discs

Sony Blu Ray Burner

Kevin R., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Pros: BD writes effectively at 4x. 25GB in 20 minutes.
  • Cons: This drive is weak for reading/ripping. Verified ripping on multiple dual and quad-core systems, ripping 25GB with no compression, takes over an hour at peaked transfer rate of 16M/s. CPU, mem, hard drives not the issue. Swapped with an LG and Lite-On, both avg between 26-30M/s and takes just ove...

Beware! Must Purchase Software!

Lena R., Newegg
14 November 2011
  • Summary: Software purchase will add at least $100 to your final cost. And no, there is no free alternative available online. Not even VLC will play blu-rays because of the lockdown on the codecs.
  • Pros: It's blu-ray.
  • Cons: No software included means you will have to purchase it separately.

Terrible product

William P., Newegg
20 May 2011
  • Summary: Quality of player is nice for movies only. For installation, ripping, etc., utilize another drive.
  • Pros: Plays blu-rays as expected.
  • Cons: - Says you get a free 5-pk, only received one BD-R disc. - Connected/installed and it seriously takes 35 minutes to install a program. Tried installing Black Ops today, 48 minutes. - Crysis installed after 1hr 11 minutes. Looking for drivers, if any. - Whenever drive is being read, it lags everyt...

  • Cons: Отписал 150 дисков, из которых 20 на 50Gb и сдох мой BD-5300. Запорол уже 10 болванок подряд пятаясь проверить все возможные варианты неисправностей, помимо привода. Но увы - причина в нём. При прожиге получается какой-то сбой, и начинает что-то слегка щёлкать. Диск при этом вынуть нельзя. После ...

  • Excerpt: Возможно надо проверить и другие диски, а что бы не тормозило видео поменять ХДМИ кабель, но всё таки мой вывод что отвратительная модель..Хотя за такие деньги ожидать чего то большего просто наивно..
  • Pros: на фоне обнаруженного недостатка их нету
  • Cons: купил, вставил решил посмотреть мультик в блю рей качестве..и тут у меня начались проблемы..сначала тормозило видео (звук нормально шёл)..Железо у меня очень хорошее софт то же настроен хорошо, но на всякий случай проверил программой для проверки совместимости с блю рей и всё ок..Потом он переста...
