        I use this to burn BluRays and DVDs on my iMac (no disc drive) for my wedding film company. It works very well and gets the job done. Sometimes the tray doesn't shut all the way at first and I have to give it some incentive.

        Comments about Aluratek USB 2.0 External Slim Multi-Format 6X Blu-Ray Reader / Writer (Tray Load):

        It's doing the job of burning Blu Ray and that's what I mainly bought it for. The write speed of burning 6x hasn't happened yet though. It is only burning at 1x to 2x write speed. So, burning is taking forever. I hope that changes or that I figure out how to get this thing to speed up. Burn quality is nice. Also, loading the disc can be tricky because it feels "unsturdy" because of the balance of the unit on a table.
