It wasn't more than a few months ago that Benchmark Reviews tested the ASUS BC-1205PT Blu-ray Drive, which was proven to be a future-proof asset with the format war recently ended in favor of BD media. But sometimes technology isn't adopted quite as fast as we might think, because in the age of Blu-ray there are people out there who still haven't made the transition into a DVD-burner. Unlike CDs and DVDs, Blu-ray Disc isn't in every household, and since music and movies seem to work perfectly well on the older platforms there might not be any real need for such a premium storage device.
In this article, we do away with the benchmark tests and take a subjective look at the ASUS BC-06B1ST Blu-ray disc optical combo drive. After all, there aren't really very many BD-burners on the market to begin with for there to be a worth-while comparison. Sure, we could create a few dual-layer DVD coasters to see how fast that happens, but in the end it doesn't concentrate on the primary features a SATA Blu-ray burner can offer. Benchmark Reviews tests the functionality and explores the feature set offered by the ASUS BC-06B1ST Blu-ray combo drive.
