Any recommendations for external Blu-Ray writers?

Postby dsttexas » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:29 am

My high end laptop supports one e-sata, two USB 3.0, and one USB 2.0 so having a good port for an external burner should be fine. The question is whether there is any consensus on good quality external burners. Any suggestions?

Also, I understand these burners are only meant for computer connections for writing and playing, and do not support an HDMI output for direct play on a HiDef 1080p TV. So a Blu-Ray player would be needed for that. And that they don't support playing commercial Blu-Ray discs. True?

You can get an external Blu-ray burner for approx. $90 USD. They will play and burn Blu-ray discs. LG makes some nice ones. The thing to keep in mind is to make sure you purchase quality blank discs and burn your movies at a slow speed. Sometimes the higher speed misses information. the Blu-ray in essence is just a higher capicity DVD that can play and record HD video. But you can also use them for data discs too.
