              Comments about ASUS SBW-06D2X-U External Slim CD/DVD Blu-ray Drive:

              I just replaced by Mac Pro, and until I have enough time to get a Blu-ray burner in its second optical drive I needed the capability of burning Blu-rays to back up my projects. This little drive just fit the bill. Its size and price were perfect. It's a little slow, being external, but it gets the job done.

                100% plug-and-play on MacBook Pro. Very Easy to travel with and set up anywhere. USB Y-Cable power (plugs in to two USB ports) provides usability when in the field, but may be less desirable for desktop use.

                      This is a good product but be sure your setup can accomodate the dual port USB connector. My laptop's USB ports are on opposite sides of the machine so I needed an extension (not included) to use the burner capability. Plus I only have two ports so using this device means unplugging everything else. For playback only a single port (seems) to be enough.
