If you have Blu-ray copying related project, then opting for Sothink Blu-ray Copy would be a good move. That is the case given what it has to offer. For instance, it has 5 copy modes that would really cover most of what users want to achieve. To find out how this copier performs, I had to test it myself and here is what I noted.
Sothink Blu-ray Copy at a glance
You will have any easy time installing Sothink Blu-ray Copy. Once you are through with the installation, its interface will further make it easy to find your way through. Its features are well laid out hence making it easy to clearly identify what each performs.
Compress large Blu-ray movies
Given the large size of Blu-ray disc content, Sothink Blu-ray Copy will come in handy. It makes it easy to compress the content of BD 50 to BD 25. This feature is further helpful if you want to copy the content of a Blu-ray disc to the regular discs. In turn, the regular discs are playable on most DVD players on top of the fact that they can only handle less data than Blu-ray discs.
Relatively fast copying
Burning or copying of disc content may be frustrating when using inappropriate programs. That is contrary to what Sothink Blu-ray Copy offers. With a computer with average specifications, you will be through with copying your discs with minimal impact on your system’s performance. During the process, one should note the less time required.
The other impressive thing about Sothink Blu-ray Copy is its ability to retain the quality of your Blu-ray movies even after copying. For a start, you can even save your copies as ISO files, which are easily manageable for later use like burning or viewing. Your newly created copies are also of the same quality as the original. During this phase of copying, this program lets you choose how you want to manipulate your DVD menus and subtitles.
If you were looking for an easy-to-use application to handle your Blu-ray discs, then Sothink Blu-ray Copy would be a reasonable pick. Not only does program make it easy to make exact copies of Blu-rays disc content, but also retain the quality for future use. Its ability to compress movies is another positive that will surely draw your attention. On top of that, you will enjoy a smooth copying experience with minimum impact on your system. Given all that information, it is clear that this copier is worth a try.
If you are lucky to have a Blu Ray drive on your computer, this one is for you. But the way the new computer market has been going in, I don’t think you will see those drives on computers anytime soon in a mainstream manner unless you pay lots of money and even at then with all that money you pay, there is only a DVD drive. I really would have liked to see the ability to load DVD disks using this utility but it’s only a one way format, so not useful to me.

Check TigerDirect. They sell Blu Ray drives and recorders. NEVER wait for computer manufacturers to do something you can do yourself or you’ll pay through the nose. It’s not a big deal.
You can add or replace a DVD drive with a Blu-Ray drive for less than $50.
Blu-ray/DVD/ADCHD discs still have a place in the entertainment world. If you still own a Blu-ray player and don’t feel obliged to replace it with something that can read from an HDD, you will enjoy the impressive features Sothink Blu-ray Copy has in place on paper. I took it for a quick spin to find out how it really is when put into hard use. Here is what I found out.
Impressive control over output
A robust formatting and preparation engine lets you format your Sothink Blu-ray discs with utter precision. You will determine what audio or subtitle streams to embed. You will also have the power to put chapters and titles and assign each category an audio track and subtitles. The result is amazing control over the product that lets you get the right content for your Blu-ray player.
Fast and efficient
Sothink uses a batch processing technique that leverages NVIDA and CUDA for faster processing with less impact on your processor and RAM. My PC is running an NVIDIA graphics card and I had the change to test out the functionality. The speed, I must admit, was impressive compared to how other tools have performed on my machine.
Blu-ray products tend to be huge. The shrinking algorithm lets you deal with more manageable data on different discs. You can can not only copy BD 50 to BD 50, BD 25 to BD 25, but also shrink the large-size BD 50 to much smaller size BD 25, and vice versa.
No cover generator
This could be the biggest problem I have with Sothink. Most of the Blu-ray disc makers have some tool to help you generate a cover for the disc you are creating. Sothink chose to overlook this and stick to burning the disc. Could be an inconvenience to people who want the whole package.
Sothink is an easy to use tool for someone who is just interested in copying or reproducing Blu-ray discs. You can even save a couple on your HDD as ISOs and the speed of action will always come in handy when burning many discs at a go.

Two CONs and no PROs. What’s up with that? LOL Seriously, even their own web site says that you can’t copy a copyrighted disc without 3rd party software. So it seems to me that the software by itself is pretty useless to most people. Yet people claim they are using this software to copy movies, even 3D movies. I know all those are copyrighted and have DRM protection on them. So I have to ask, how?
