External DVD/CD
#12
I'm thinking of getting one just for offline storage, not for video.  Specifically a Liteon eb1 because I've had really good luck with Liteon.  https://www.newegg.com/lite-on-model-eb1...eb1+liteon

I assume you want to install libbluray but beyond that what about burning software under Linux?  I've used growisofs.  And I like X-CD-roast https://sourceforge.net/projects/xcdroast/ even though it's been dropped from debs so you need to build from sources.

I'm into terabyte drives lately but for some stuff I'd prefer it not taking up space on my nvme at all.  I have DVD drives but now it's time to go bigger.  Anyway, anybody had experience with these?

A single layer Bluray disk holds 25 GB https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray  Oh, but Sony and Panasonic are working on an Archival Disk standard which holds much more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archival_Disc  Reliability/readability seems to suffer when you go for density, par files may help, keeping multiple copies defiinitely.
