6. Blu-ray reading tests
Let's now see how the drive performs with various Blu-ray discs.
-BD-ROM SL (25GB, movie)
-BD-ROM DL (50GB, movie)
- BD-R SL (25GB, data)
-BD-R DL (50GB, data)
-BD-RE SL (25GB, data)
The drive's specifications indicate that it is also able to read BD-RE DL media. However, such discs are not currnetly available on the market. Mitsubishi Chemicals are expected to release samples later this year.
Overall, the LiteOn drive read the all the Blu-ray discs of this test easily and fast enough. A slight drop in the reading curve was reported by CDSpeed at the second layer of the 50GB discs, although ut does not seem to influence the good performance.
