      Comments about LG 8x External Blu-ray Disc Rewriter:

      I love this burner. It was recognized by my editing software right out of the box. Uses sata e connection for ease of use and quicker burning / authoring. I use it for all of my video projects. I also have a shark duplicator with internal LG blu ray burners which work great as well. I'd never go with any BD burner other than LG!!!

                  I found the LG BE08LU20 very easy to set up and operate. Great burner with lightscribe support. I haven't been able to find any Bluray recordable disks with lightscribe in any search on the internet. Well worth the investment.
