    Samsung SE-506CB reviews

    SE-506CB/RSWD Slim External Blu-ray Writer Drive (White) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great on Mac & Win 8 running in Virtual Box I can now watch & burn blu-rays on my 2008 mac pro running Yosemite with discreet Dolby dts 5.1 surround sound out the optical output. (make sure to enable digital pass-through in the blu-ray for mac player app or mac sound settings & that your audio receiver can decode dts). I also can burn blu-rays from win 8 running in virtual box with no problems (I haven't tried to play a blu-ray in windows yet) I've been using this product for a few weeks & haven't had any problems with it. My mac will burn a disk with this device just fine. However, I'm using ImgBurn to burn in windows & Blu-Ray Player App to play in mac because ImgBurn can burn a dts audio track. You can install ImgBurn in crossover or wine to run it on mac but getting crossover or wine to find this usb device is for the tech & code savvy only.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perfect at first, then not so good. After researching multiple products and reading lots of reviews it seemed that this burner was one of the top ones out there. I received it quickly (because B&H is just awesome) and decided to try it out by backing up my photography catalog to BD-R. The backup used 9 BD-R's and every single one burnt perfectly and pretty quickly (I used Toast for Mac). At that point I was extremely happy with it. After a couple of months it was time to do another backup and when I inserted a BD-R (from the same spindle as before) the drive would not read the disc, so I tried another and then tried to play a BR luck. The drive spins and you can hear it trying to read it, but after about a minute it stops. I looked online for solutions and even upgrade the firmware, but no change. Before I bought this drive I read many other mixed reviews...some had problems exactly like mine and others had none at all. Now of course it's about 10 days past the warranty period, so I guess it's time to start looking for something else. I hate having an $ paper weight that's practically brand new (still has the plastic on the top).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY if you have a MAC!!! This company is great but many many false places will review and say this device is the best for a Mac and this is NOT true. This device will barely function as a DVD player let alone all the other writing and Blueray features. WASTE of MONEY!! No one should ever be allowed to say this is compatible with Mac as it is only maybe 15% compatible. If you have a PC this thing would likely be awesome... I don't have one anymore so I can't review that part honestly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to setup, works on Macbook pro Works as per the specification. Have not tested the bluray writing capablities yet. I rented few bluray discs from redbox and they all worked fine. Just one USB cable and its simple to setup. OS X automatically detects the drive and no installation is needed.For the same price of an apple superdrive, you get this bluray writer. I would strongly recommend this.Also, this is a join venture production of Samsung and Toshiba.Just con so far, When we run bluray movies - just that the drive gets a little noisy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT It just don't write blu-ray discs on W.10 ! I've tried with 3 laptops but immediate say This disc type cannot be closed, even if I tried with several discs ! So, DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT !

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from software requires a paid upgrade Was able to play bluerays with included software when I first bought it. Now the software requires a paid upgrade to even play a blue-ray. This fundamentally goes against my grain after buying the product and expecting it to just work. The 2 stars is because it worked fine when I got it and is fast for reading dvds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung SE-506 for MacBook Pro The drive work perfectly with my MacBook Pro the first time. I had to download an application for it to work to see Blue-ray movies in my Mac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing so far The product is easy to use and can be connected to any USB device that has a screen (i.e., a tablet, TV, etc.) in order to play Blu-rays. That was an added bonus I did not expect. It is very lightweight . I have only used it a handful of times so I cannot speak for its long term use. I have used it about 7 - 8 times in the last two weeks. The only bad thing I could think of, is that it is so lightweight that it feels flimsy. Just don't drop it and you should be fine.
