        This drive works well with iMac 2011. Plug and play without any special settings.

        Though it doesn't need extra external power adapter, but it does need to connect two usb ports to work correctly.

            Comments about LG Electronics External Super Multi Blue Slim Portable Blu-ray Disc Rewriter:

            I wanted the ability to read and write blu-ray discs on my new iMac and chose this drive. It's nicely designed, but not as nice as Apple's. But since Apple is choosing to ignore blu-ray altogether I had few choices. It does what it's supposed to do, although it's noisy and a bit slow.

                  I have two LG M-Disc Blu-ray drives. One internal and one external. The internal one works well and I love it. The external is just a paper weight. I would recommond the internal before thinking about buying this one.

                      I have not used the full capabilities, but as far as ripping a CD, it was plug and play with the retina MBP.

                      That said, I know it will take some extra software for Buray, which I have not tried to get working yet. If I get the bluray working i'll bump up the rating.

                      Nice form factor.

                      PS - only plug in ONE of the USB cables.
