Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Plextor falls short with its PX-LB950UE external 12x Blu-ray writer - PCSTATS.com Plextor falls short with its PX-LB950UE external 12x Blu-ray writer

Plextor falls way short with its newest 12x External Blu-ray Writer...

"In recent weeks the talk of the town has been a sleek black external 12x Blu-ray WRITER from the folks at Plextor. The Plextor PX-LB950UE connects via USB 3.0 or eSATA cables and is capable of burning single layer Blu-ray Disk (BD) media at 12x, double layer BD media at 8x and DVD-R media at 16x speeds. In addition, it supports the playback of Blu-ray 3D movie titles. The bonus to going the Blu-ray writer route, is that BD-R media is even more useful than DVD media for archiving MASSIVE amounts of data - For ~$13 a disk, a single layer recordable BD-R disk will hold 25GB of data. "

"All is note roses with this drive; no matter what DVD software we used (Cyberlink Power DVD8/9), no matter what update we tried, now matter that Cyberlink BD Advisor v2.0.4017 gave the test system a pass, no matter that Plextor PlexUtilities scanned the disk and found it Defect free, PCSTATS could not get its official test Blu-ray movie ('10,000 BC') to play in the PX-LB950UE."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
