Hey Everyone

I am looking for a good blu ray burner to write my video files to. I am an independant producer and want to be able to master my HD video projects to Blu-ray.

What experience have you had with the burners? About how long can I expect to wait for a 4x burner to write a single sided disk? Also i have heard that some burners don't work in Vista 64bit? (Sony has at least one). Any general impressiones would be great.

Thanks in advance :)

You would be wise to ask this question to the people over at CDfreaks.com

But honestly, the encoding process used is MUCH more important than the medium. (note: the overwhelming number of BR titles still using MPEG2)

Thanks Skittle

I am not so much worried about what codec I use to write my files as I am finding a good burner that works well...

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Skittle,
I'm not worried about it because thats not the topic of this thread. I asked about burners not software/codec solutions to burn my files. I know what i am doing, I will be using either MPEG2 or the VC1 codec for burning depending on which one Encore supports... But thanks for being so worried about it.

I still need someone to suggests a good Blu-ray burner though. Please guys someone has to have had some experience... Any help would be appreciated.

sorry^^ I just see so many badly mastered DVDs these days...

But I would assume that many of the BR burners available produce very similar results... because they are so new to the market I cant imagine that there are many different manufacturers for the parts.

Speed: 4xCLV for a 25gb disk will take around 25min to burn.
