Opinions on Blu-Ray Writer / M-Disc?

I was looking for a Blu-Ray writer and I came across this LG model:

<a href="http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-WH12LS39K-Blu-Ray-Rewriter/dp/B00632U162/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332211187&sr=8-1">LG Electronics WH12LS39K M-Disc</a>

It says that it also burns M-Discs, with which I've never had any experience. There are reviews but I'm guessing that most of them occur shortly after the purchase. Has anyone had any experience with M-Discs and this model of Blu-Ray writer. Is it dependable?

Thanks

  1. I am curious about this also. I can't help you with comments on the BluRay but I have had very good luck with the LG DVD burners. All of my builds have nothing but LG optical drives in them currently and my new build will probably use a few from this rig even though they are over 6 years old. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My only complaint about the new LG's is the chrome strip across the front, but that's being picky.
  2. Thanks for that at least. Maybe we'll be lucky and someone else will chime in about M-Discs.
  3. In 2009, the Defense Department's Naval Air Warfare Weapon's Division facility at China Lake, Calif. was interested in digitizing and permanently storing information. So it tested Millenniata's M-Disc against five other optical disc vendors: Delkin Devices, Mitsubishi, JVC, Verbatim and MAM-A.

    "None of the Millenniata media suffered any data degradation at all. Every other brand tested showed large increases in data errors after the stress period. Many of the discs were so damaged that they could not be recognized as DVDs by the disc analyzer," the department's report states.
