Works great on my Macbook Pro.

Rj7877, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Purchased my Lacie drive from a secondary vendor and thus far this drive has worked perfectly. Build quality is unparelled by other manufacturers, with aluminum outer case. I will admit price is more than most other drives when compared with similar features however given the reliability of the...

Best optical drive I have owned.

Russell J., Newegg
19 August 2013
  • Summary: Everything is perfect with this drive. Works flawlessly on my MacBook pro and installation is a breeze. No need to reconfigure settings like some devices on PCs. My MacBook Pro instantly recognizes the drive when plugged into one of my 2.0 USB ports.

GREAT BLU-RAY BURNER for MAC !!!

NP520 "Nep61", Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I wanted a Blu-Ray burner to archive some Photos and Music and Videos I have, which I wanted to clear off my hard drives. I wanted it to have a FireWire connection, because USB2-- in my opinion-- gets bogged down and is extremely slow. This unit did the trick...

quality always a good choice

David Ladely, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I heard the LaCie was the best quality Blu-ray recorder, was compatible with both Windows and Mac,and was the only one that also offered firewire in addition to USB. In addition, the LaCie is built very well and runs cool. So the LaCie has earned its reputation.

Nice Burner

Lucas M., Newegg
9 July 2012
  • Summary: Honestly, this is the perfect DVD reader/writer for the vast majority of users. However, be wary if you plan on using it as a Mac boot drive.
  • Pros: I own a 2009 Macbook Pro, and used a kit to replace my internal optical drive with a solid state boot disk. This fulfilled every need that the average user will use their internal drive for- it burns and reads DVD. I can't speak for its LightScribe abilities, as I haven't used them.
  • Cons: Only one con, but this ended up being a big one for me- my MacBook, which will boot off of any external FireWire drive (I've tested it with several), will not boot from this drive with a bootable CD or DVD. I bought it to install a Linux distro via a live CD (I didn't want to do a complicated USB...

Cheap Build Quality: Build Your Own & Save

Hugh, Amazon
18 May 2012
  • Summary: The LaCie d2 Blu-Ray 12x USB 2.0 and FireWire Drive (301906U) does the job, but like others have said, is overpriced. Having read David C. Franklin's very helpful review from June 6th, 2011, I decided to follow his recommendation to buy the same Pioneer Blu-Ray drive that LaCie uses in their d2...

LaCie D2 BlueRay

Mr. CAUNEAU Francois "fc06", Amazon
13 May 2012
  • Summary: A quite expensive device, for a quite cheap cheap look : rough case and plastic tray of a vintage "ATX" look. Works with a Mac but should be hidden at first :( Another point : I ordered it to be shipped to France, but I could not use it : LaCie neglected to provide the proper plug for my country.

Hardware Problem Free, Software Not So Much

E. A. Montgomery, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Needed a Blu-Ray writer for a 2009 iMac to write HD home movies. The LaCie was plug and play, no problems with the drive being recognized after I hooked it up with a FireWire cable.
