It worked great at first although you would need to purchase/download an updated software to be able to read Blu-Ray. It is NOT "plug and play" as the box says.
After maybe less than 20 uses, it no longer reads my Blu-Ray discs but reads DVD's fine. It crashes quite often when it did work.
Not very reliable for the price I paid.
Product is not listed on Samsung website for troubleshoots/queries, attempts for repairs are fees that end up costing you just as much as buying a new one.
I've not even had a chance to use it to write Blu-Rays.
Would not recommend this product at all. After much research online, a lot of other people have been having the same issue as me, so it's quite a common issue.

I purchased this to view Blu-Rays on my 27" iMac and to rip to my hard drive to watch on my iPad and this works perfectly in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion without having to install any drivers or additional software. Just plug it into your Mac and 'it just works'.

There is now an officially endorsed Blu-Ray playback application for OS X which works perfectly with the drive.

Have used it only a few times - literally, no more than 10 - and then it stopped working: only reads normal DVDs now. Would not recommend.

I purchased this primarily to watch Blu Ray movies on my MBPr. I thought DVDs looked amazing on the retina screen but Blu Rays are taken to the next level (look even better than on our expensive Pioneer plasma). I am using this in conjunction with MacGo Blu-Ray Player software and it works very smoothly.

I went for the white model (also available in black) as it is a better visual match for Apple devices. The build quality isn't quite as good as Apple's devices but nevertheless, it is a good product. It has a slide out tray rather than a slot on Apple drives. It is a little noisier than Apple drives too but the sound of your movie will drown that out (and I usually sound isolating wear headphones).

Highly recommended.

I got this drive with a single-head cable, plugged it into a usb3 hole on my mac and it worked out of the box. I ripped a blu-ray using MakeMKV and it went at 9.4M/s [2.2x].

Really useful, really works. does what it says on the box but has screwed up once or twice & with the price of blu ray discs that could be costly but overall I considered it to be the best available so a small loss is no different to any disc burner.

It does exactly as it said and delivered a really nice Blu-ray disc out of Adobe Encore off my MacPro Tower. The menus and everything worked straight away. If all the video footage had been without fault it would have been magic!
