5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I am running an Apple Mini Server with VMWare using Windows 7. The burner works perfect and I can't imagine using a different Blue Ray Burner that would be easier to install or use ... Luv IT!!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNice Burner

Pros: I own a 2009 Macbook Pro, and used a kit to replace my internal optical drive with a solid state boot disk. This fulfilled every need that the average user will use their internal drive for- it burns and reads DVD. I can't speak for its LightScribe abilities, as I haven't used them.

Cons: Only one con, but this ended up being a big one for me- my MacBook, which will boot off of any external FireWire drive (I've tested it with several), will not boot from this drive with a bootable CD or DVD. I bought it to install a Linux distro via a live CD (I didn't want to do a complicated USB workaround), but it didn't work.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, this is the perfect DVD reader/writer for the vast majority of users. However, be wary if you plan on using it as a Mac boot drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat on most computers

Pros: - I love the portability. I can use it with my mac and my pcs. I just move it to the computer I want to burn from, or one that is not being used.
- burns fast
- Toast software is very good and has lots of functions and options. I just use it for data back up though.

Cons: - It doesn't work on all my pcs, especially the older ones. A couple of my pcs just won't recognize the drive, and one locks up. Luckily, I've got a few computers that it works great with, or else I'd return it
- although it comes with a FW800 cable, there is no FW800 output. That can be good if you want to be able to hook it into your FW800 port on a macbook.

Other Thoughts: I am now using this to back up all of our projects which usually run more than 100 gigs. The Toast software allows you to drag the entire folder over, and it will calculate how many discs it will take, and tell you when yo change them. If you've ever tried to back up using the built in mac drive, you'll appreciate that feature.
