        The duplicator works good with my MAC.
        Don't expect to get much done as it is "SLOW"

        The drive looks nice and comes with a stand, but the usb port on the drive itself is hard to plug into sometimes. The drive views and burns disk with ease. But beware that you have the codecs install for dvd and Blu-ray if you want to watch movies. Also, not all laptop displays are rated for Blu-ray even if stated as HD Display.

          Comments about ASUS SBW-06D2X-U External 6x Blu-ray Writer (Black):

          On deadline for an award submission I discovered that my documentary had to be delivered on Blu-ray. I didn't have time to research or shop. I feel very fortunate to have had a perfect experience with this burner. Other than the fact that my iMac did not immediately detect the device (and after a Final Cut reload, iMac restart and a cold boot failed) I used Disk Utility where the drive appeared with a drop-and-drag option. But after that, the ASUS drive showed up right where you would expect it ("Computer") and remains accessible there. After burning four versions of the project I can report that each on rendered without a fail. Playback produced everything you would hope for on Blu-ray. I would by no means guarantee this outcome regardless of platform, software or file source. But I could not be happier in the short term. And the price worked for me....
