    Not even a CD burner in my new GAMING PC

    |
    Posted .

    I just bought a high -dollar Brand Name Gaming desktop and it must have been put together by a true "Gamer who doesnt want to waste a penny on anything that doesn't have to do with games! It had a ced/dvd/blu ray reading drive with no burning capability and the flimsy drive they put in probably wouldn't last through installing the software into the machine. This is the answer to everything "storage" including using 100GB BD-XL discs to back up my NAS Drive. Add the fact that I can plug this into my Optical driveLESS Surface Pro and Surface 3 Pro and it drasticaslly increases the capability of any machine you plug it into!

    Great Blu-Ray Disc Drive

    Owned for 10 months when reviewed.

    I needed a new drive to replace my old one. I usually use it for ripping from CD's and DVDs. It works great and never a problem. It plays CDs and DVDs really well but like I said I use it more for ripping.

    Big and Bulky but Excellent Blu-Ray drive

    |
    Posted .

    Big, bulky and not very portable. I purchased this drive for quality, not portability. Needed to read Cds that contain old graphics software I use. It's fast, quiet and despite its size fits in my laptop briefcase. Reads Blu-Ray, DVD and Cds with no problems. Great drive!

    Plays DVD and BluRay discs as advertised

    Like others have said, it is a little large, and I wouldn't want to take it on a trip. But with my new PC lacking a drive, it fills the need to be able to view film credits for my job. Be warned though, it attempts to load more software than just what is needed to run the player or burn discs (I have 14 icons in the CyberLink Media Suite folder). So, you might want to be careful during installation. I'm still trying to figure out which software started trying to download my pictures from OneDrive.

    Just what I wanted

    Posted .

    USB 3.0, CD/DVD/Blu ray, all in one. Only burned one disc so far but very fast. If the USB cable is not long enough and you go to buy another cable make sure to get a USB 3.0 cable, they are physically different. Unless you don't have USB 3.0 on your computer? Still worth it for future upgrades.

    So, So Glad I opted for this Model!!

    Posted .

    I had been asking questions of the Blue Geek Squad Folks regarding what Blu-Ray Burner might be best suited for My needs as an average to moderate Multimedia Home based user: most said that the less expensive models, say the LG or Pioneer would do just fine, and so I ordered one. Oh, Boy! The product was as light as 5-6 blank DVD discs, and felt very flimsy, to the point that I thought they must have shipped Me the wrong unit… But alas, upon returning the lightweight model I paid a bit more for the Buffalo desktop version “BRXL-16U3” and have been quite happy ever since. I thought it strange that Best Buy does not offer any additional Warranties with this product, but am hoping for the best in the future.

    Great External Optical drive!

    Posted .

    I purchased this external optical drive because my gaming pc didn't come with an optical drive or have the room to add anything other than a DVD-R/RW slim drive. So far the drive is working great, it reads discs extremely fast. I've burned several blu-ray discs with it and haven't experienced any issues thus far. Also want to confirm that even though the system requirements only list up to Windows 8, it is fully compatible with Windows 10. I plugged the drive into my USB 3.0 port and it was instantly recognized and installed by Windows 10. Grab one while you can, the options are becoming less and less for Blu-ray optical drives as we further advance into the digital era.

    Very pleased with this CD burner. I purchased 2 of them and one had an issue with ripping CD's but returned it and ordered another and it worked perfect. Highly recommend. One of the best I have used over the past 20 years.

    The blu-ray burner is exceptionally good, and a necessary purchase these days, since laptops no longer come with players or burners. Love the way it works. Completely satisfied with this purchase.

    I do over 200 DVD's per year and this works great. Much better than the lightweight units that snap on and off the DVD or CD.

    Fast and Sturdy

    This unit does exactly what it is advertised to do. My only "complaint" is the size. This unit looks like an early era CD drive. It is bulky. If you are looking for somethig sleek and unobtrusive, keep looking. That is the ony reason I did not give it 5 stars. Operationally, it is outstanding.
