Cons: wish it was silver - ah... just trying to find something to complain about.
"I bought this because I refuse to pay apple for a proprietary dvd burner that has a cable that is permanently attached and frays after such a short use. This wasn't much more than the apple burner when it was on sale and it works great! I have a 2011 Macbook Air (newest build running lion) and after I added a USB extender this worked absolutely perfect. (it uses both USB slots - one for power) Final cut picked it up right away and I didn't load a single driver or any software - it just worked right out of the box. I feel bad for windows users because they will rely on a driver disk but honestly I've never had too much trouble with Roxio. Watching my first movie from Final Cut right now that burned and played on the drive.
In any case - if you have a macbook air - don't buy the apple drive. This one is nearly the same size (slightly larger) and has a detachable cable and can burn blue rays. What more could you want (other than one with a thunderbolt attachment.) Excellent drive - I would recommend it for Mac users."

"The size is small and very light, and it doesn't need a power adapter. Works fine. Finally I can enjoy and create my own Blu-ray disc!"
"The hardware itself may be fine, but if you're in Windows Vista and plan on using this to watch Blu-ray movies, forget it. The CyberLink PowerDVD 9 that is bundled is 2 full versions behind their latest version, and it crashes every time I try to play a movie. What's the point? Tech support hasn't been able to help me either.
On the bright side, I was able to buy some third-party software to rip blu-rays to my PC."
