Summary: Easy to install & Vista compatible, works also here in Europe. Must buy if you want to get best out of your high density videos. Recording speed could be faster, but the quality is more important.
Summary: Custom install with "right angle" 18" SATA cable (not included), carefully remove tray face (clips on) and remove button on front of drive. Without removing any fan covers etc., right angle SATA plugs into one of two SATA plugs on MacPro motherboard then weave cable up to DVD drive area. I've only burned 25Gb BD-R and they definitely burn in about 23 min. at 4x with the Sony BWU200S Int. Sata Blu-ray Disc Drive by Sony.
Pros: Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Works w Toast 8 for data
Summary: Looks wicked, performs fantastic and is quite silent.
Pros: works wonderfully, bought from Sony expecting a higher than average quality product and got one!. Seriously looks like the best optical drive i have ever seen in my life and i doubt anything will ever look better.
Cons: Only 4x available from what i can see do not think they updated this range yet to 8x
