Nice to see the price dropping again. Still can come cheaper I hope, £49.99 is the magic price I'm waiting for.

Click the bundle deal on that page and you add verb dvds, the bundle costs less than the drive on its own which is just silly....wife bought the bundle this week for my xmas present.

Nice!

Unfortunately it's Sony's licensing fee for blu ray software that pushes the prices up. If it was me, I'd buy OEM and pirate whatever software I need to use blu rays and then perhaps send the dev some money through paypal.

Or I'd get a DVDRW drive for a fraction of the cost. It will be a long while before blu ray drives are a necessity.

Will purchase when its down to around £50.

£60 and I'm in.

£80 is still very good when compared to the introduction of DVD burners but I ain't comparing.

Serial ATA Technology, Fancy way to say SATA cable included

I bought the Samsung retail x12 read only as only want to back up.
The blu-rays are still so dear...

How can they charge 4.99 for a movie, but 2.50 just for a blank disc.

Anyone know any good programs to back up? as getting my samsung today.
Nice 1

as already posted, I bought mine last week at DABS - cheaper.free delivery + quidco AND bundle with dvds actually came out as £76something!

Wow £7.99 each! Do you have to buy 10?

I have had one of these for a while now and paid £140 for it. Great writer and with 25GB disc less than a £1 nowadays it is a good sign. Just wish the 50gb ones would come down from a fiver each. Anydvd hd and image burn are good programs to use with it.

I'm thinking about using one of these to burn my MKV files to.
Does anyone know if MKV copied to a BD-R will play in one of the cheap limit BluRay players.
At the moment I have to split into 2GB chunks and format my usb drive to FAT32 to play these - it's a bit of a pain
Thanks

Could I burn a 40gb MKV 3d bd movie to one of these discs and play in PS3 or blu ray player?

Which discs?

If you split it over 2 single sided discs 40GB is fine.

50GB (dual layer) BDRs cost -make sure you're sitting down- £10+ each.

Those blank DVDR discs than come with the Dabs offer are worth 30p each.


I think we're a very VERY long way away from cheap dual layer media. I'll still be buying one of these sooner rather than later as I like disc-playback on my machines.

But if my MKVs are less than 25GB will they work on a blu-ray player (with MKV support) on the quid BD-R??

If you have a good Blu-ray player you should be fine. And when I say good I mean a new and upto date Sony or Panasonic. Anything less and you'll be wasting your time and left scratching your head maybe.

Not had any problems here with large .mkv files on BDR or BDRE. Not had a lot mind you but all problem free on my Sony BDP-S370.



How long does it take to burn a 25gb disc?

Hot because so far this is a good price.

Personally I am coming round to the idea I'll just never bother with blank Blu-ray.
What for?
I bought a HTPC (a Dell Vostro 200 slim for £120) and it can play any .mkv, .avi, .divx etc etc and think this beats any burner & media deal.
It is just so flexible (and it's quiet).
Especially with 1 x 1tb & 1 x 500gb hard drives installed.
Cheap 16gb pen drives have made shuffling large .mkv files around between PCs easy - and the latest deals on 32gb only adds to the flexibility.

If I want to make back-ups I can always use DVD5s or DVD9s (and get suitably sized .mkvs) or just back-up to the hard drive(s).
Hard drive capacity is just so cheap now & I have never had a single failure in almost 8yrs (and in that time know of only one failurte amongst family & friends).

I already have a standalone Blu-ray player so I am covered for retail blu-rays.

Personally I think that for PCs etc Blu-ray were their own worst enemy & have missed the boat keeping prices so high for so long
(and Fujioka is quite right, anyone who imagines 50gb dual layer BD media is going to get cheap any time soon is kidding themselves).

I can't imagine how long it takes to copy 32GB to a USB pen drive zzzzzz

scoobie

The point is it allows 16gb+ .mkv films to be moved between PCs pretty easily.
The speed is really immaterial.

(not that I would bother with many 16gb+ sized .mkv films but it just makes using hard drives & that sort of copying very straight-forward & simple)

I think Blu-ray writers -for the moment- are really for people who need them or like me want to have a portable format/flask that can be moved around easily and played on standalone boxes. USB flash drives and external HDDs aren't normally an option for large files (over 4GB) if plugging into standalones (like the Sony BDP-S370) .

If you have a PC connected to your TV (and like it and never burn) you don't need this writer really and never will. A ROM playback drive will be fine.

As for dual-layer, well they never really got that right with DVDRWs (still very problematic) and they're still very expensive. A very wasteful format because the people involved with the technical stuff lost interest (no money to be made and moved on to new things). This sort of thing keeps prices high and it will happen to an extent with BDR DL and BDRE (rewriteable).

Still and nice pressie for xmas though

You can get 50GB disc for roughly £4 if bought in 20 packs. Still not cheap but no where near a tenner each.

Yes sorry mate I meant the discs that were on offer recently, and burn them via this machine.

But say If I had a 42gb movie, I would have to put half one one disc and half on the other?

Yeah, 2 discs. What I'd do (and have done) is just re-encode the file to fit on a single layer £1 disc. It's very VERY difficult to see the difference and if you can you're sitting too close to the TV or have too big a TV. If you have an original m2ts (Blu-ray) or or HD file (camcorder) then I'd encode it to fit and then one day -a long time away- re-rip/recode for DL. That's what people used to do with DVDR and still do now with HD data material as it works fine from DVDR/RW obviously.

Those eBay ones (190386718054) that j1mgg mentioned are a great buy and that price drop must be fairly recent but the important thing to note is they're in Japan ie at least 20% must be added for import tax + £8 Royal Mail charge etc etc. And you have to buy 20 and your burner may not like the disc -so you're stuck with them. Best to buy 1 or 2 and go with the one your burner has no problems with and your standalone also likes.

The £10 I mentioned is a true price for the UK. I've not seen them under £9 in the UK. Anyone seen them for less?

Ahh, ok mate, thanks.

I think i'm just going to stick to my media player and watch HALF SBS material on that rather than burning a 40-50gb file on to two discs etc.

"As for dual-layer, well they never really got that right with DVDRWs (still very problematic) and they're still very expensive."

I buy Verbatim DL DVD9's & can honestly say (using Nero 6 & always burning at the slowest speed) that I never have a problem.

It is true they were expensive a while back but prices have fallen noticeably of late (especially with some of the deals here).
The are easily got now for well under £1 a time.

The other thing it is worth pointing is that a hell of a lot (not quite but almost half) of Blu-ray movies are under 25gb as a straight rip.
That's another reason why a 32gb flash drive is very handy for transferring content from 1 PC to another.
