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!!

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!

Primarily purchased for use with a 2012 15" Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Screen the Qumox Blu-Ray Writer has (so far) proven itself to be reliable and effective. The device came in a plastic wallet with a single slip of paper with poorly written 'English' and Chinese instructions printed on it, a standard USB 3.0 cable, and an additional USB 2.0 to 5V Power cable (for use if the USB 3.0 cable alone can't power the device effectively).

The unit is well made with a fairly sturdy construction and has a great looking case fashioned from aluminium that's a great match for many of Apple's computers. It's generally plug-and-play. Connecting it to all my devices had it auto installed and ready for action in a matter of seconds.

So far so good, then. However, the USB 3.0 cable that came with the device is not of great quality. When connected to one of my PC's it worked well - a bit slow perhaps, but it read all types of discs ok. However, it struggled to read disks properly when used in my Windows Laptop, attempting to spin up and read the disk over-and-over whilst simultaneously refusing to eject the media. When connected to my MacBook Pro it would cause issues in which the Blu-Ray drive would unmount and suffer errors when reading and writing CD's, DVD's and Blu-Ray. Surprisingly the provided USB 3.0 cable just wasn't of good enough quality and was choking the data transfer speeds. Connecting the secondary USB 2.0 cable did not resolve the issue and actually made no noticeable difference to the drive's operation. A quick shop on Amazon for the purchase of a better quality USB 3.0 cable and a days wait for delivery had the drive up and running and performing properly when used with all my devices.

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.
