Pros: The drive works very well. I have burned multiple DVDs with it, and all have worked perfectly. It is also very quiet and of reasonable size, especially for the price.

Summary: Works on a Mac except the included software.
Pros: I use this drive to boot from the Mac OS X DVD after the internal optical drive failed. iTunes had no problems buring a playlist from this drive. It's really fast. The software that comes with this drive is Windows only.
