OK I have a Panasonic ST30 television and the 210 Blu Ray player. I am now in the market for a decent Blu Ray burner, preferably one that can do 3D also. I have a dual core, 2.4 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 64 bit laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit and I don't care if it takes me 8 hours or more to burn a disc. I am tired of downsizing to DVDs and I want a burner not just a HDD to store movies on. I have Nero 10 Platinum HD authoring software.


Anyone got any models in mind? I will take internal or external...

I've been real happy with a Pioneer internal. It's not 3d though. Choices will be more limited with external drives.


Nero 10 doesn't support 3d burning.

Ah, thanks for the info. What's the model # of your drive?

Why do you want to burn movies on to a bluray disc? Seems awfully expensive. Just get a 3 bay hard drive enclosure and fill it up with 2tb or 3tb drives and you will come out way ahead in the long run.

In the long run you will need more than three bays and more than 3TB drives
I've gone with an eSATA dock and bunch of 1 & 2 TB drives when each were at the $70 price point. When they start selling 4TB SSD drives for $70, I get some of them too. The core SATA interface is not going to change anytime soon.

Of course, but I was trying to prove a point. Just think how many expensive blank bluray discs you are going to need. And optical discs don't last forever either.

So far I have burned 2 Blu-ray discs. One contains my entire cd collection as mp3 the other is a movie just to see if it actually works. I did the movie on a BD-RE because I may not keep it. I do not really need a Blu-ray burner but you never know.

I have had good luck with the LG burners. I have a 10x and a 12x, and both of them are the best drives I have at reading damaged discs. The write quality on them is high and the discs always play in other devices. Some of the burners I have had write discs that don't work in every player because the write quality is so poor. Samsung has been the worst for me with write quality. The LGs can also change the booktype setting (not an uncommon feature anymore but worth noting), so you can change a bd-r disc to a bd-rom disc after it is burned to make it more compatible with standalone blu ray players.

I have a Panny GT25 and 210 as well. I use a Pioneer BDR-205 for my burning needs. BTW, you don't need a 3D capable drive to burn 3D discs only to read them. If you use the the 210 for playback, then there is no need for a 3D burner.

Afaik they only sell bdr25 at an ungodly price. I dont think ive ever seen the dual layer ones for sale and thats how it used to be with dvds back in the day. So a lot of blurays you arent even going to be able burn without compressing and overall hard drives would be way way cheaper.

You don't need one to read them either, they're no different than 2D BDs in this matter, playback of what's on them is where they're different.

But you did say Blu-ray burner virtual drive instead of of just a virtual drive. There is no such thing as a virtual Blu-ray burner, just a vitrual drive for read only. The OP asked for a recommendation for a Blu-ray burner not whether anyone here whats to burn a disc or not.
