        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!!!

              The LG BE08LU20 works flawlessly with Final Cut Pro 7. Burning a Blu-ray disc could not be easier.

                    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.
