Things You Need to Know Before Choosing a Best Internal Blu Ray Burners

With an increasing number of computer users relying on Cloud storage, you may be tempted to think that a good internal disc drive is not essential. However, if you are looking for the best performance with high-definition movies on your computer, you should consider investing in one of the best internal Blu-Ray drives and best blu ray external drive available today.

Like many other users across the globe, you may be willing to upgrade the DVD drive in your computer, but do not know which is the best one.

Choosing the right internal disk drive and bluray external drive mac for your computer may not be as easy as you may think. This is mainly because there are numerous products to choose from. Modern blu ray internal drives are, without a doubt some of the best options today.

If you are looking for the best internal blu ray burner, then there are some of the aspects you should consider:


What can the best internal Blu ray burners can offer? This is something many computer users tend to overlook while shopping for the best internal Blu ray burners.

What you need to note, in this regard, is that the best internal Blu ray burners are not exclusively designed to write and read blu ray disks. Therefore, your preferred product should be capable of handling other functionalities as well.

For instance, your preferred blu ray burner should be able to read and write dual layer, single layer and quad-layer disks. Additionally, you should consider getting a drive that accepts CDs and DVDs as well. With such a product, you will be able to read and write virtually any type of disc on your computer.

Compatibility | Best External Blue Ray Drive

There is not point of buying a product that is not compatible with your computer, right? Well a disc drive may be fast, visually appealing and affordable, but simply not compatible with your computer hardware or software.

As such, it is advisable to check whether your preferred drive is compatible with your PC.  To begin with, the internal drive you opt for should be compatible with the operating system installed in your desktop.

This should not be a problem as most of the leading blu ray brands manufacture products that are compatible with multiple OS platforms. However, some of the products available today are specifically designed for specific operating systems.

For instance, it is supposed to be the best internal Blu ray burner for Mac and Windows operating systems. To know whether the drive is compatible with your computer, you need to check its specifications before making the purchase.

Supported Surround Sound Formats

Exceptional video and sound quality are some of the reasons why an increasing number of consumers today are upgrading to the best internal Blu ray burners. However, you need to check the sound formats supported by your preferred unit.

Basically, you should consider buying a product that supports surround-sound formats, such as DTS-HD Master and Dolby TrueHD audio formats. Unfortunately, not all the blu ray internal drives available today support such formats.

This may appear to be insignificant, but a drive that supports these formats will give you the best surround sound experience. With regards to surround-sound formats support, these are some of the aspects you need to check:

  • Bitstream Output

Blu ray internal drives that use this mechanism are some of the best today. Such drives are designed to send the undecoded audio bits, as they appear on the blu ray disc, through an HDMI to the receiver. By so doing, the drive allows the receiver to decode the surround sound format internally, hence giving out the best sound quality possible.

  • Internal Decoding

As opposed to bitstream drives discussed above, other blu ray internal drives feature an internal decoder. The internal decoder chip will decode the DTS-HD or TrueHD surround sound formats before sending it to the receiver. As such, the output may either be in HDMI or PCM formats.

Our Final Review

Just as the case with many other computer components, choosing the right disc drive or bluray external player for your PC is not an easy task. As you may be aware, there are many technicalities at play.

While laptops play blu ray internal drives are some of the best today, do you know which of them is ideal for your laptop or computer? Well, this does not have to be a daunting task.

This guide will take you through the various things you need to consider while shopping for the best internal Blu ray burners.
