What he said right above. The requirement was eSATA, the enclosure I suggested just happens to ALSO have a USB2 in case of emergency.

It really depends on SATA-x.
SATA-1 is 1.5 Gb/s
SATA-2 is 3.0 Gb/s
SATA-3 is 6.0 Gb/s
Note: BD-1x is 32 Mb/s, so 12x is 432 Mb/s.
USB2 peaks at 480 Mb/s, not counting overhead, so this would be slim for 12x BD writing. It should work better than 4x though.... which would only be 128 Mb/s.
With eSATA 1.5 Gb/s on the enclosure, there is plenty of room for maximum speed BD read/write.
