Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny!!! I have had my BE14NU40 for a while now. I can't say enough good things about it. Most of all, I enjoy the portability as I take it with me between home and office. It has never failed me. I always have a quality finished product. I produce videos of church worship services and it does everything that I could want it to do. Because of the large volume of storage needed for archiving this data we use it to burn "M" discs which allow us quick and precise access access to whatever we need. I would but it again without hesitation. Great value for the money!!
