    Maybe its too soon but the software needed to work with the blu-ray drive seems to be clumzy at best. Running OS X 10.8.2 I had problems. The Toast 11 that was included did NOT work. But again, the drive seems to work fine and does play Blu-ray disks assuming you have a software player.

    Great Reliable Burner

    By Sam

    from Huntington Beach

    Pros

    • Easy To Use

        Comments about LaCie d2 Blu-ray XL Reader and Writer:

        Running on a Mac, this burner is fast and always works. I burn BluRays and DVDs using Toast software. My one complaint is that my macbook pro (mid 2010, running Mavericks) pretty much slows to a crawl when burning.

                          I needed an extra burner for my MAC Pro and wanted to see the difference between regular DVDs and Blu-ray. The difference was amazing. The burner was easy to install, was easy to use and, in my estimation, as fast as I needed it to be. I would by this product again.

                                  Maybe its too soon but the software needed to work with the blu-ray drive seems to be clumzy at best. Running OS X 10.8.2 I had problems. The Toast 11 that was included did NOT work. But again, the drive seems to work fine and does play Blu-ray disks assuming you have a software player.

                                  Bought the unit for generating Blue Ray High Definition movies that would be compatible with my Samsung BD player. The d2 worked perfectly first shot. No drivers needed on my Mac. Just plugged it in, burned the disc and had a gorgeous result!

                                    Been using LaCie external hard drives and burners for years with excellent results, so naturally turned to LaCie when I went HD. This burner is solid with zero problems encountered. Have not yet found any compatibilty problems with a variety of desktop players from BluRay discs burned with this unit.

                                      I use this for burning HD and Blue Ray discs and it does an excellent job, very quiet, powerful and efficient, so that part is outstanding and I highly recommend this product, but who ever designed the exterior (or may be nobody designed it?), did a horrible job: who places open/close button right under the disc tray, that when it is open, user have no access to push it in order to close it (I use a pencil to reach the open/close button). In my book this is a major design flow in this equipment. A minor flow in my opinion is on/off button being placed on the back of equipment, which is not easely accessible with no on/off light indicator either. Again it does great job for what it is intended, but those "little" things can be annoying.
