In a world where every laptop is getting thinner it has become frequent for disc drives to be removed from the equation entirely, such is the case with my new Macbook. Of course the digital age has made physical discs almost obsolete but sometimes a disc drive is necessary, I myself like to have a physical Blu ray disc rather than simply downloading from iTunes and as soon as i purchased my Macbook I knew I wanted to watch some high definition movies on its beautiful screen. I purchased these drive and i can safely say I am pleased with its performance, it has had no trouble playing any DVD's or Blu rays I have thrown at it. Perhaps one of the only problems is the noise that it makes, at times it is extremely noisy but this generally subsides after a minute or two. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants a reliable disc drive to use in conjunction with your laptop.
Blu-ray is the ideal solution for users storing, editing or watching high definition content or writing large or small amounts of data to an optical drive. The unit is backward compatible with DVD and CD formats. Ideal for users who want optimal playback performance of Blu-ray discs, DVDs, or CDs on their PCs. Easy to install and easy to setup the drive comes with a USB 2.0 connection and includes Cyberlink Blu-ray Disc Suite which allows consumers to view DVDs in near HD quality. A great solution to periodically backup and archive your data, preventing content from being altered or erased in the event your system is attacked by a virus or other malware.
