LG BE06 External Blu-Ray Writer

Check out the newer LG BE08 Blu-Ray Recorder <>

Hook the LG BE06 to your PC or MAC by simply by connecting it up to a standard USB 2.0 port.

Nobody could argue that this offering from LG is an ugly duckling.  The sleek and stylish unit operates either vertically or horizontally and comes in an ultra shiney white gloss enclosure featuring a rather nifty touch sensitive eject button.

The fact that this is an external model means that even the novice consumer can purchase and install this drive in a matter of minutes.  The majority of blu-ray writers on the market today are for internal installation into a PC so a working understanding of the inside of a PC was required.

Along with the USB connection the LG BEo6 also requires the connection of it’s power supply so this isn’t the holy grail for the portable worker but at least you can take this drive away with your laptop and enjoy high definition blu-ray movies.

If you where an adopter of the now defunct HD DVD format then you’ll be pleased to hear that the drive is at least able to read your HD DVD’s so that you aren’t forced to sell them for a miniscule amount whilst you then search out the blu-ray version.

As one would expect the BE06 can handle the play back and writing to DVD and CD’s even if it’s not at todays cutting edge speeds.

LightSribe is include to allow for the printing of images and texts onto supported DVDs but the fact that it takes over 20 minutes to print these images may make this feature less appealing.

The LG BE06 features a very respectable 6 speed writing capability but with 4 speed BD-R still being fairly rare it will take a few months before media is available to make the most of these write speeds in either 25GB single layer or 50GB dual layer formats.
