4.0 out of 5 stars LG BE12LU38 for Mac, 1 Mar 2012
I bought the LG BE12LU38 as a backup storage system for my video files. I went for the LG over other brands as its blu-ray products were generally getting favourable reviews over other brands. It is well built and stylish, if a bit bulky. It's also very quiet.

The question mark for me, however, was whether this would work on a Mac. LG blu-ray drives are advertised as being Windows compatible but reviews for other LG models suggested that Macs had no problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great album but..., 4 Jan 2010
I agree with others that this is the weakest of their three albums, but on saying that it's still very good.

Stupid decision.
