Is there much to do to change this into an external ? What would i need ?

Hot !!

@darrenjdoc

you will need something like this

amazon.co.uk/Tem…e_1

Good price. Heat added.

Any idea whether the front cover of the disc tray can be taken off? It will not fit in my case otherwise

Its a good deal, but same sort of price at all the usual places. Lambdatek cheaper, more so if combining postage with other purchases.

Is there any point waiting on these. I know they will get cheaper but is there anything to happen to the actual technology?

And does anybody know what the life expectancy of a home written bluray is?

Thanks ;o)

Well, yes, other than that ;o)

Though, how long will this take to write a full Bluray?

I install one of these here; youtube.com/wat…o50

At the time it was £99.99 delivered at Misco if you chose their free delivery option. It has now gone up in price, but worth keeping an eye on.

takes around 25 mins to write 25gb a 4x 43 mins at 2x

So if you can get the discs should be 10 or 12 minutes for a full 25gb bluray at 10x?

hi, i was looking into this drive the other day the earlier ones got very good reviews but i couldnt find any on this but this is still the one im going for especially now you can get 10 blank 25gb's for 12-13 quid, i managed to find it for 100 i think at overclockers but i may be wrong but i think they add postage later anyway top post heat added, cheers mate.

forgot to add it may be worth looking around especially if there any vouchers about because most places are doing this for about 110 now saying that i havent seen many vouchers for comp hardware shops lately, cheers.

voted cold, its £103.39 on scan so if you have i29 or avforums or hexus forum's free postage then its £1.60 cheaper than this deal.

Same things over a quid less on Amazon

Personally I have no intention of buying at current prices. When they're less than half this price I may (only may) start to check prices. Its way too expensive at the moment, and the difference in price from DVD isn't THAT good enough to get me to change.

PhilK, i think you must have been looking at the RRP on 7dayshop as they are actually £10.99, amazon is much more expensive.

Well the speed will increase.



Possibly, but not by much. A Blu-ray disc spinning at 12x would have a rotational speed of approx 10,000 rpm, which is pretty high in a domestic drive. Heat and, more importantly, kinetic energy become an issue at these speeds - you wouldn't want one popping out of the drive and flying across your living room! It's the rotational speed that has limited the write capabilities of CD, DVD and will limit Blu-Ray.

22x DVD-R is 12,000rpm and 24x is out which would be about 13,000rpm so a 16x bluray writer would give approx the same rotational speed as 24x dvd-r so i reckon that will be the max speed we'll see in the future.

I don't think it will be that high - Blu-ray disks are heavier than DVDs and therefore generate more energy at the same rotational speed.
