    Great drive, wish it came with Mac software, February 10, 2013

    I bought this drive for my new MacBook Pro with USB 3.0, and for that it works great. It gets enough power for both DVD and Blu-Ray disks from one USB 3.0 port and Apple’s DVD Player worked for playing DVDs immediately. VLC Player worked great for the one Blu-Ray disk I’ve played so far (google around to find out how to get it to work with Blu-Ray, it’s easy but know you won’t get the Blu-Ray main menu with VLC, just access to all the content… some other option for Blu-Ray might be more complete) but there were occasional pauses during playback while the disk spun up and back down.

    My main complaint is that while there’s disc-burning software for Windows, no such software was included for Macs. Instead we are encouraged by LaCie to purchase software elsewhere. This is disappointing.

    So the pauses, plus the lack of Mac software, leads to the loss of one star. It is a great drive otherwise, and being able to be powered from one USB 3.0 port is *fantastic*.

    Works without any problems, but only if you use a USB 3.0 cable with included power connector. I tried it with a single USB 3.0 cable without the extra power connector but it was unreliable. The supplied USB 3.0 cable with power connector is far too short to be useful, so I had to buy a separate longer LaCie one. Before I bought the LaCie cable, I purchased a very cheap USB 3.0 + power cable that did not work, so be careful when choosing.

    I got this Blu-Ray drive for my MacbookAir which has 2 USB ports, one on each side of the computer. The Blu-Ray drive’s USB cords are too short to reach each port, and it needs one port for power. If you’re buying this for a MacBook Air I’d highly recommend getting the StarTech.com Compact 2 port USB 3.0 Hub. It’s just the hardware solution I needed. Then it was just a matter of downloading some add-on files to use with VLC to get Blu-Ray playback working on my MacBook Air.

    My windows machine was a different story. it was a nightmare. First, the software bundled with the Blu-Ray Drive, Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 is 2 revisions out of date, and to upgrade to version 12, you have to pay $. On top of the PowerDVD version 10 and 12, as well as VLC played the Blu-Ray at an unwatchable choppy pace. Fortunately, at the height of my frustration I found a program called “TotalMedia Theater” by ArcSoft. It required rebooting the computer, but once it reboots, my Blu-Ray that PowerDVD and VLC both choked on was played flawlessly in TotalMedia Theater!

    The slim size and not needing a wall adapter make this drive worth buying. However you’ll likely also end up buying a USB 3.0 hub if you’re on a MacBook Air, or buying ArcSoft’s TotalMedia Theater if you’re using Windows. Lacie ought to include TotalMedia Theater instead of the far outdated version of PowerDVD.
