Here is the link to the dabs.com website: dabs.com/pro…tml

I added the ebay outlet link instead of the dabs site because the dabs site charge £3.99 to deliver. Where as the Ebay outlet send the item for free.

Excellent price for a decent Blu-Ray writer.
Now if only I had an excuse to actually buy one...

I would get this, but I don't already have software.

Good deal though.

Not a UK deal then:

Not available to Northern Ireland



Good price though - Dabs site wants £5.99 to deliver to Northern Ireland...

Out of interest, what do ppl use BR writers for?

Only reasons I got one is for hd films of the kids rather than loosing quality and to stick load of avis on so the kids don't scratch all the dvds

I mainly got it to watch blu-rays on. A normal Blu-ray rom drive costs about £45-£50 so I just decided to pay the little bit extra for the burning capabilities.

Never know. It may come in handy. Could be a good way to keep my games I got from green man backed up.

I just got battlefield 3 from green man the other day thanks to HUKDs. But having to keep the downloaded game on the hard drive for when I need to re-install does take up space. I have a far few games now that I have downloaded that are taking up space.With a 25GB blu-ray I can burn 2 games to it and free up HD space.

I have no issue downloading games, but having to download a copy of the game as well as installing it is using up alot of sapce.

Battlefield 3 is 13GBs to download then another 17GB once installed.

Do we need Blu-ray drives?


That's Blu-Ray drives in general - and I certainly don't have one in either my desktop (custom built, so chose to go with a DVD-RW) or laptop (just didn't come with one) and I get by just fine. The only Blu-Ray drive I have is in my PS3, which is obviously used for PS3 games and movies - I have a fairly decent, growing Blu-Ray collection.

But who actually needs a writer? I shoot and edit video in HD and I've never once been asked by a client to deliver content on Blu-Ray. I used to get asked to author DVD videos all the time, even after switching to HD, but these days I mostly just get asked to deliver HD files, which are mostly sent online, or possibly burned to DVD. I'd love to get a Blu-Ray writer, I just can't justify it until I actually need one.

People still use discs?

Voted Retro

Pretty good!

Paid this about 6 months ago for this drive, But wish i brought a drive that came with software as the software for bluray play back is expensive.

We are still using optical media ?? each to their own.

Bought one of these a few weeks ago to sit in my Microserver.

How reliable is dual layer blue ray writing? Dual layer DVD writing is not IMO very reliable. If you are just wanting to keep a copy of video files why not just use a USB3 external drive? One terrabyte storage for about the same price.

Awesome find. Great for backing up original TV transport streams of non-bluray HDTV series.

Cheaper at ebuyer albeit only six pence with free delivery

ebuyer.com/349…cts

Cheers just ordered one from ebuyer , been meaning to take the plunge for ages ...

(_;)

BTW This drive has probably the best writing performance of any mainstream drive (last time I checked), it also importantly is NOT riplocked.

It is by far the best drive you can get for the money. It's only downfall is a lack of software (but the ones that do offer software its normally Nero for burning. Not playback software), but this isn't an issue for most people if they know where to look.

This may not be ideal for most people but at least its a start. If you are going to buy any Blu-ray software I would have to say buy a blu-ray decrypter like AnyDVD HD™ or DVDFab. This way you can play any retail blu-ray films in any installed video player and won't need a monitor with HDCP.

The best combo seems to be PotPlayer & AnyDVD HD for Blu-ray playback.

It turned up today and is fitted. Watched my first blu-ray on it. Inception.

As this is a OEM part it comes with nothing. This means no sata cables.

As the description says it doesn't come with blu-ray playback software but I was able to play blu-rays using VLC and this link. The only blu-rays it won't play are ones that have BD+ protection. Mainly FOX films.

The drive is really quiet and does load films fast. Haven't tested burning as I don't have any blank discs, but I mainly got this for blu-ray playback and for that it works fine.

Here's an how-to for Ubuntu users: forum.pinguyos.com/Thr…VLC
