In the endless parade of "me too" products, it’s always a joy to encounter something different and even more satisfying when that something scratches a nagging itch. Such is the case with the latest Blu-ray Disc (BD) offering--an EMedialive Editor's Choice winner--from DIGISTOR (a division of Sunland International).

Hugh Bennett | To my mind, Pioneer’s new BDR-2203 writer kit and BDR-203 recorder offer the best value of any currently available Blu-ray Disc burning systems. The blend of high-performance, obliging compatibility, and reasonable prices make both attractive for everything from HD video authoring and BD publishing to everyday data backup and archiving. Faster and less expensive units may always be around the corner, but at least for the moment, Pioneer rules the roost.

The world's first Qflix drive bundle--hardware by PLDS, software by Sonic, media by Ritek, movie site by CinemaNow, sales by Dell--does everything it should do, from simple-and-seamless download-to-burn of movies from the Qflix catalog to general-purpose DVD and CD burning. The selection of burn-ready CinemaNow movies is still quite limited, and the jury remains out on whether consumers will buy into Qflix's drive- and disc-specific restrictions, but there's no question the PLDS drive and Roxio Venue application are effectively holding up their end of the bargain.

Hugh Bennett | LG's Super Multi Blue Rewriter GGW-H20L offers sound writing performance, broad media compatibility, LightScribe facility and provides BD, HD DVD, and DVD video playback for those with mixed movie collections.

Hugh Bennett | For similar money to Pioneer's BDR-101A, the PX-B900A offers more features including dual-layer BD-R/RE burning, superior blank media support, and CD reading and writing abilities, as well as a functional software suite. That said, it's still early in the game and BD recorders of all stripes need time to mature and reach an affordable price level to attract a larger audience. But Plextor has made a good start.
Editorial/Product Review - Posted 26 May 2007 By
Geoff Daily | As with DVD, proper testing is essential for producing a quality, replication-ready HD disc. Given the exponentially more complex inner workings of next-gen discs and the current state of the technological ecosphere built up around these products, testing disc images has produced a string of challenges.

Hugh Bennett | Some suggest the conflict between Blu-ray Disc (BD) and HD DVD can be resolved by simply offering devices compatible with both formats. I’m not so sure. It’s easy to paint a rosy picture of peaceful coexistence, but compromise comes at a price.

Synopsis: Aside from video capture and DVD authoring, Dragon Burn for OS X offers nearly everything Toast 6 offers, save for Toast’s video capture and very limited DVD authoring. But since Dragon Burn sells for $49 and so does Apple’s own iDVD, you can get all that functionality for the same price as Toast 6. Only time will tell whether Dragon Burn for OS X will be able to steal users away from Toast. But there’s finally another viable recording option for Mac users, and to that we can only say “It’s about time.”

Producing DVD’s unique combination of sound and vision is quite straightforward on the video side, but audio is another story. Before you find yourself up to your ears in audio formats, channel configurations, and audio streams, what do you need to know to make your project sound like DVD?

With well-rounded software bundles, solid rewritable performance, respectable CD-R/RW functions, the fastest writing speeds in recordable DVD, and the option to write to more affordable DVD+R discs, the Sony DRU120A and HP DVD Writer 200e have a lot going for them. However, when all is said and done, our test results here put DVD+R and DVD+RW short of DVD-R and DVD-RW when it comes to physical compatibility with current DVD devices and on low-cost blank media. But keep in mind that DVD products are still in their infancy, and much could change with next-generation products due within the year.

The Que! drive also comes with a nifty software bundle, including PowerDVD for DVD playback, Easy CD Creator 5 (standard edition) for CD recording, and medioStream’s wonderful neoDVD for entry-level DVD authoring and recording.

All in all, the Sony DRU 500A ($349.99) is the DVD peripheral to have. Its support of all formats DVD (except DVD-RAM) and CD makes it as versatile a CD/DVD drive as has ever been released. The drive worked flawlessly in testing except in the case of writing to CDs with Windows XP native packet-writing support. Sony has produced a great drive, but has put too much emphasis on the video aspect of DVD in the software bundle. For anything beyond the most basic CD and DVD-ROM recording chores, the package leaves something to be desired, although the free upgrade to RecordNow DX helps considerably. With slight upgrades to the recording and backup side of the bundle, Sony would have a number one hit here.

Synopsis: The Reflection CD-5121 accedes to a right honorable spot amidst the pantheon of crowd-pleasing one-to-one duplicators with that special audio-oriented edge. It’s a rip-roaring 16X duper in its own right—a hitherto-unseen achievement at this writing—with awfully handy four-button navigation to get you mode-to-mode with estimable speed and ease. Its extensive diagnostic, disc-counting capability, and PC connectivity give it versatility not always found in the single-disc set. It also makes a nice complement to MediaFORM’s ever more diverse line of CD duplication and production systems.
