Excerpt: I had my eye on this burner for quite a while, until I decided to go ahead and purchase it - I do NOT regret it at all. This has to be one of the best burners on the market. Its burners Blu-Rays fast, and with no glitches or coasters to date.
Excerpt: APPLE computers do not play the BluRay discs...something having to do with copyright money that APPLE won't pay. You can download a program that gets around this problem though. It plays DVDs on APPLE fine. It also creates discs like a breeze!
Excerpt: Using this on a Mac OS with Toast. I foolishly purchased two different "portable" bus powered drives and never got more than 10 BD-R writes. They are both hooked to a Mac Pro tower, so they have not had to deal with the stesses of being portable. The Samsung was even sent back under warranty.
Summary: This Blu-Ray disk burner does it all. It has more capability than any other device. It is the fastest device out there. It works flawlessly with my Mac without any drivers. Highly recommended.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Excerpt: This is a solid drive, compatible with M-DISC archival media. Performance is good. The included Cyberlink software, however, is a messy, badly-integrated set of applications that are little more than nagware to get you to buy the full versions.
Pros: Consistent Performance, Easy To Use, Good Media Compatibility, Quality Construction
Cons: Cyberlink Software, Lg Firmware Update Utilit
Excerpt: Purchased this for use with my 2010 Mac Pro Tower. Works great as long as you get the right software. I've tried various and some are better than others. It's well built and requires external power. Not too loud. So far on gets about 6x read on Blu-Ray.
Excerpt: The looks and quality of the drive appear to be good. The connecting cable is short, but workable. Setup was simple: Make sure the power switch on the back is off, connect the power supply and the USB cable, and then turn the power switch on.
Pros: Appears Well Designed, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Quality Construction
Excerpt: I needed a portable Blu-ray writer for use with several laptops and desktops for a family of five. Software was easy to setup and I used the device to immediately to create my system disks on one Blu-ray disk instead of several DVD disks. A good investment with up to 14x speeds!
Pros: Accompanying Software, Ease of Use, Improves Performance
