To get the best Blu-ray burner, you need to test it from such aspects below.
(1) Input: An eligible Blu-ray burner should support various video formats, including MKV, MP4, AVI, M2TS, TS, MOV, WMV, WMA, 3GP and more.
(2) Output: It’s good if a Blu-ray burner can burn videos to Blu-rays discs that have corresponding storage capacity (BD-25, BD-50). But it would be better if it can compress videos to fit a smaller disc (BD-5, BD-9, BD-25).
(3) Output quality: If you burn videos to Blu-rays for preservation, you will want to retain the original quality of the videos. So please remember to check the output quality before making a decision.
(4) Burning speed: The source files can be large so it’s important to check the burning speed of a Blu-ray burning software program. A powerful Blu-ray creator won’t let you wait too long to get the burning done.
(5) Customization: Customization tools can help you create your own Blu-rays, so customization features like creating menu, adding external subtitles, selecting audio tracks and more would be a plus.
(6) Ease of use: A good Blu-ray maker should be clean and intuitive. Before deciding to purchase such a program, please first check if it is easy to use for you.
