First of all, this is definitely 100% USB 3.0. It may not matter so much in terms of transfer speed (you'll never reach the full potential of USB 3.0 either reading or writing discs) but I've found that when connected to my MBP (which has native USB 3.0 ports) it doesn't need the second power lead connected at all when reading any discs or when writing CDs or DVDs. I have yet to try writing blu rays but I suspect that'll be the same too. I'll let you know when I've tried them.

It's a good looking piece of kit: The silver metal finish complements my MBP perfectly!

OK it doesn't come with any software, but I'm sure that if it did, it wouldn't be suitable for a Mac anyway. At least you can choose as complicated or as simple a solution as fits your requirements.

Mine came with a Sony BD-5740L blu ray rewriter installed which is capable of handling virtually any type of discs up to the 128GB blu rays which currently cost as much each as this drive does!! Also, because it's a tray type drive (rather than a slot load) it will take small CDs as well as normal sized ones.

All-in-all, an excellent piece of kit, which I have no hesitation in recommending!!

Not a name I was familiar with and I read a number of critical reviews but I took a chance and it led to one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. Instructions are sparse but sufficient - plug in and play, it works like a dream with Windows 7, Nero & Cyberlink. Not only that but it is very small and discrete that you hardly notice it, and so quiet you can hardly hear it. A very neat bit of quality tech. Excellent.

For some reason Apple seem reluctant to supply Bluray devices. The standard Apple drive that came with my iMac was not capable of reading or writing Blurays - a function I needed.

This device not only solved that problem, but actually matches the look of the iMac as well, so it doesn't stand out as an afterthought!

I'm well pleased!

I do love it, after I got it to work which was a bit of a hassle. I'll describe my ordeal in hopes it will be useful to someone else who bought it and is experiencing similar frustrations.

I'm using the drive with an iMac with Retina display. At first, I only connected it to the back of the Mac with the supplied USB cable. (There's also a power lead in the box.) It loaded DVDs flawlessly, but when there was a disk in it, it would randomly refuse to open the tray when prompted, so I had to eject manually. Also, it would only load some Blu-rays. Maybe 1 out of 5. With the rest, it would just quiet down in the middle of the effort and that was that. I then connected the power lead too, also using the USB ports on the back of the Mac. Same thing.

After fuming for 3 minutes, I got my MacBook Air out and lo and behold, the drive worked great (without the power lead being connected). DVDs, Blu-rays, ripping, burning - you name it, it did it. I realized then that for some reason, the latest iMac won't supply enough power to the drive even when I use both cables, so I started playing around with what USB hubs I own (3 of them, currently, all with their own power supplies). 2 were no good, with or without the drive's power lead. The one that finally powered it (using just the USB cable) is this one -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Support-Universal-Charging-Notebook-Ultrabooks/dp/B00HTY55O6

So needless to say, I bought another one just in case (from Amazon.de, because it's no longer available here).

The moral of the story is I hope you own a USB hub that can power that drive fully, because some won't (I'd direct you to the brands that didn't work out for me, but neither is being sold in the UK, so you couldn't come across them if you tried). See what the specs of the UNITEK tell you, and try to find similar when shopping around.

Nice drive, it matches the Mac mini well with its brushed aluminium finish . I've Used it to play DVD and Bluray films and it does a fan job. The benefit of this drive over most is its actually a caddy which neatly holds a slim sata device so in theory if you ever wanted to change or upgrade the drive in the future you could easily.

Works well on my old Acer Aspire Laptop (using USB2 ports) without
needing the extra USB port power lead provided.
I bought this as a reader only & haven't tried writing.
Works on this dual boot laptop in both Windows 8.1 & Linux Ubuntu 14.04
both without any fuss.

The item arrived swiftly and was well packaged.
It was identical to the drive in the picture except that it did not have the name Qumox on the left corner. It matched my computer well and worked straight out of the box.
My issue is about the playback quality of standard DVD's and Bluray DVD's. The Bluray playback is as I would expect of a normal DVD and normal DVD playback was blurry and unsharp. I checked the settings and tried different software but it made no difference.
The disk would not eject when the front button was pressed and occasionally would not open from within the operating software causing extreme frustration.
Item has been returned and I will order a replacement as it may be a faulty unit. It seems to get good reviews so fingers crossed
