Sony BWU-200S

  • Excerpt: As far as we’re concerned, the Blu-ray burner to beat these days is LG’s GGW-H20L1 (reviewed December 2007). Unfortunately for Sony, its BWU-200S isn’t the drive to do it. We pretty much knew this before we even began testing the drive—after all, the BWU-200S is rated for 4x Blu-ray write speeds compared to the LG’s 6x speed rating. And true to form, LG’s drive trounced Sony’s in every Blu-ray burning scenario.
  • Pros: Decent burn speeds on Sony's new 4x media; handsome faceplate; SATA.
  • Cons: Abysmal burn speeds everywhere else; even with error-check disabled, performance is still pokey.
