OWC Mercury Pro 16x Blu-Ray DVD Burner
Mercury Pro 16x External (USB 3 port only) - $179 - in stock
Full sized external BluRay burner, with USB 3 port. Uses the LG 16x burner. Compatible with both Mac and PC. Mac users might want to buy Toast 14 Titanium so you can encode and burn BluRay movies. Can burn 25, 50GB or 128GB BluRay, M-DISC, single or dual-layer DVDs, and CDs.
Notes for Apple Users:
- Apple's DVD Player only works with an internal optical drive or Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with this drive, you need the free VLC Player application.
- Apple's iLife software will support DVD and CD burning with OS X 10.4.3 or later.
- Apple does not support playing back BluRay movies in the OS at this time, so this unit will not play BluRay movies. Hopefully someone will make a 3rd party application that does.
- No Apple software (iDVD nor DVD Studio Pro) encodes and burns BluRay movies. To do this you need either Adobe Encore or Toast 12 Titanium or later.
Ports: USB 3 x 1 (USB3 is fully compatible with USB 2). Requires AC power. Small cooling fan. Warranty - 1 Year.
What's In The Box: BluRay burner, AC power supply, USB 3 cable, 2 x 25GB BluRay discs
