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. It was bundled with Roxio Toast 10 which works for writing HD movies on DVD or Blu-Ray media, both of which played properly on my Toshiba BDX2000 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player .

Summary: Bought the drive to watch my Blu-ray movies on my new 27" iMac. No Blu-ray movie player exists in the Macintosh operating system so you can only use the drive for this purpose if you install Windows and get a Windows OS compatible blu-ray player. I requested it be returned. The supplier consented, paid for the return shipping, and refunded the entire sum of my puchase. Wonderful experiance. Shopping is safe and worry free at AMAZON!
