    Highly recommended. Its works great on my mid 2012 MacBook Pro (i7 quad core running OS X 10.8). I plugged it in and it worked perfectly, no driver installs, and all my existing software saw the drive and worked with it as expected.

    Likes:
    Works right out of the box (no drivers needed)
    Very small
    Very lightweight
    Excellent for laptop users who need to carry it with them
    No power supply needed (nor is any supplied)
    USB 2.0 cable supplied (this is one of those special double headed cables, in case you have an older computer that can’t sufficient power via one USB port, then yo would simply plug in the other tendril into another USB port, unlike other Blu-ray drives on the market, this second cable is long enough to reach all the way around to the other side of a laptop, for those that have one USB port on each side. On my MacBook Pro I have only used the one port, and have successfully burned dozens of perfectly functioning disks).
    Tough aluminum enclosure seems able to take a lot of use and remain perfectly serviceable
    Attractive (its a solid piece of aluminum with the center machined out, to house the drive) the drive has a black face and the rear panel is white plastic. (The drive is a conventional tray loaded design.)
    Reliable operation with intense daily use (I’ve used it heavily every day since I purchased it, in fact it works so well that I’m in the process of making backups of all my archived data and it works very well).
    Very reasonable price considering you get the drive which can read and write to Blu-ray, DVD and CD; a very nice, tough aluminum enclosure that is seamless and well built) and a USB 2 cable

    Dislikes
    Only one: Machined aluminum edges Edges feel almost sharp. They have never cut me but they don’t have the finished feeling of the aluminum edges in my MacBook Pro, which has never felt sharp.

    Oddities
    -Almost all Blu-ray drives, this one included, will play back Blu-ray movies at a max speed of 2X (instead of the rated 6X). This is intentional (Panasonic says that its to keep the drive noise level down while watching movies. So keep that in mind to set your expectations appropriately. If you are working with data then you get the full 6X speed.
    -You need to get your own software to play back Blu-ray movies off a Blu-ray disk. This is true of all operating systems (there are a few expensive Windows machines with an added cost Blu-ray option that can play Blu-ray discs out of the box, but its not Windows doing it, they just install the extra, third-party software for you , and they charge you a fortune to do this, its much cheaper to get this drive and download free software yourself). This is a Sony licensing issue. Until recently you had to pay for aftermarket software to get Blu-ray movie playback, but that is no longer true, check here for detailed information (read the entire post before making up your mind).

    I received the BLU RAY writer today and plugged it in and VOILA a blu ray on the MAC. It looks beautiful and works beautiful and
    the BLU RAY movies are beautiful….I down loaded the MACGO software, they let you try it out first, so you can’t lose. All in all
    a great deal.

    Received mine today, hooked it up to my new Mac Book Pro – Retina display and was pleased with the ease in installation. I had to (pay for) download a Blu-Ray player app for $40, but it works like a charm. No issues and worth the costs… Super simple set-up is always worth $$ to me..
