Thanks for the quick response. Sorry if this seems pessimistic but 1x speed ? Invested in the best Blu-ray Writer, the best discs (or so I'm told) not to mention Toast with the Blu-ray plug-in and all that only reaps a 1x burn speed ? Realistically, had I known this would be the result it's doubtful I would've taken the time to install the Blu-ray writer, purchase the discs and the software. Thumbs down guys.
