External Blu Ray Writer - Samsung or Asus? Tags: DVD Writers Asus Blu-ray Samsung Storage Last response: July 31, 2012 2:02 AM in Storage Share gareth_ July 29, 2012 3:55:05 PM Hi, I am in the market for an external blu ray writer for a laptop. I want the unit to be powered over USB. I have narrowed it down to two choices: Samsung SE-506AB or Asus SBW-06C2X-U The Asus is slightly smaller and IMO slightly more attractive. However, the slight size difference and appearance is of very little importance to me. I am wondering which will be the longer lasting, more reliable drive? Does anybody have any recommendations regarding these drives or any preference of one manufacturer over the other?
