No Audio Monitoring

 

Having to wait till a DVD is burned and played back elsewhere to see if your audio is messed up is really not a good workflow.

Everything is spot on, except one blaring omission (no audio monitoring. please add a headphone jack)

Almost there

 

I just got the unit today, and I very happy with the overall design and layout. I wish these existed 5 years ago! There's a whole bunch of positives, but most everything has been covered already in the other reviews. The unit is actually more compact...

A-W-E-S-O-M-E

 

Burns Blu-ray discs from PC or Macintosh--Perfect for MacBook Air - Burns AV without the need for computer, so no capture card needed or CPU-consuming CODEC-based compression - Memory card slot real handy, Sony Memory Stick but accepts SD too (and Sony...
