Works flawlessly in my Mac Pro Mid 2012.

R. Surber, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I have had this drive now going on a month. It was very easy to install into the second drive bay in my Mac Pro. All I had to do was remove the front CD Tray Plate before installing (if you don't do this, the tray will not be able to fit through the drive bay door). I have burned CD's, DVD's, and so far, one Bluray 25 GB data disc. Not only is the drive fast, but it is extremely quiet.

  • Summary: I purchased this burner primarily for backing up data. The Blu-ray Burner stopped working after 2 months and will no longer recognize Blu-ray disk also Burner will not burn a disk over 22 Gigabytes, After that it fails. Contacted Pioneer support after 2 weeks, No response. Lemons happen . However a good company will try to resolve the issue.

Fantastic Burner/Reader

Eric M. Zimmerman, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Awesome burner, burns every blank media I have introduced to it without a hitch, even my cheap Memorex Blue-ray. And as a bonus this drive will read my audio DVDs which my lite-On could not.

So far so good! Works with UBUNTU and WINDOWS.

Greg Spellman, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I've had this drive about a week...so far so good! I bought it to replace a malfunctioning DVD burner in my desktop. The drive came from DIGISTOR/AMAZON very quickly. I run a dual boot UBUNTU/WIN7 machine and I was worried because the drive came with no software or drivers. However, it was immediately recognized and usable in both operating systems, although WIN7 had to load some drivers first.

Works as it should

Sam, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Needed to get a disc drive for my home-built HTPC and figured I might as well just get a blue-ray. I'm almost entirely digital so I don't get much use out of it but when I need it it works, so thats really all I can ask for. Its a no frills drive and it worked out of the box with Win7.

Don't forget your SATA cable

P. Goins, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Works perfect. Very fast and reliable. Only 4 stars because it doesn't include the SATA cable. Otherwise, no issues at all.

makes great blu rays

James M. Case, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: Works great not one coaster when copying blu rays. 4 stars only because the door design catches on my computer faceplate catches and stalls loading every time it tries to close. I have to manually hold down computer faceplate door for unit to load correctly. I would say it wasn't a flaw but this is the only one that does it and have had several other makes in the same unit without the door catching problem.

  • Summary: The drive worked great until it died two months after I bought it. It just stopped reading disks at all. I am not pleased I have to replace this drive already.
