Size: Panasonic UJ-260 Blu-Ray Burner XLColour: External with Silver Housing Verified Purchase
I have a MacBook Pro and wanted an External Blu-ray Burner/Drive.

I searched for quite some time and looked at various makes and models.
I was comparing makes and models and YES, the price also!

In my case, the drive needed to work on the Mac side as well as the Windows side of my MacBook.
I was also looking for the drive to be simply powered by just the USB cable.
The good thing about the Panasonic UJ-260 is that not only does it come with a USB cable, it also comes with a second USB cable that can provide extra power, should you be burning a high capacity disc that might take some time.

The drive is very sleek and I like the metal casing.
The bottom of the drive comes with very unobtrusive rubber feet. Therefore, the drive fits very nicely into the fabric cover that comes with the drive.

I've had problems with some makes of blank discs in the past, so, that was the first thing I tried with this drive.
There were no problems with writing to the blank disc I used. Whilst this is not a scientific test, and it can be that not all discs will work with all drives and the writing software used, I was pleasantly surprised with the results I got with this drive.

It's a real plug and play - no software needed for Mac or Windows.
Windows on my Mac is running in a virtual machine and the drive works perfectly.

The price is excellent compared to others I looked at, and having used it, I call it 'value for money'.

In a word: perfect! Not only does it do what it says on the box, but it does so with the upmost ease - you plug and it plays. That's it.

Most modern laptops (anything that's 4 years old or less) won't require external power and the casing is understated, slim (it just fits perfectly into my laptop bag) and sturdy with a metal top. I was a little worried not seeing Panasonic branding on the product when it arrived, instead it's been rebranded with the supplier's own name and slogan "We LEICKE IT" - and I'll tell you what, I definitely "leicke" it too! ;)

Comes with the cables you need and a nice velvety bag to protect it. It runs relatively quietly and if you don't have the right software to burn blu-ray's (which doesn't apply to me, being a video editor) then it even comes with a CD that contains a free licensed version of CDBurnerXP 2.5 along with drivers for PC or MAC in case you have problems.

Oh! and playback? So far, flawless! Any doubts you may have had about smooth playback on USB2 for blu-ray playback are completely quashed with this product as I've had no stuttering or pausing whatsoever! :)

I would strongly recommend this product over the competition and trust me, I'm the type of person who does (and who did) research against all my options thoroughly, especially as I needed a reliable, portable and future-proof solution for my line of work (I say again, I work in film and video production)so if you can afford it, go for it as you will not be disappointed!

Size: Panasonic UJ-890 DVD RW DL RAMColour: External with Black Housing Verified Purchase
I bought this as the internal drive on my Acer laptop stopped working and it is an excellent replacement. It easily reads CD's and DVD's and will write to them as well. I have used Nero and Itunes to write to with complete success. Easy to use with windows 7 one just plugs in the drive and it is instantly recognised. Powered from the usb cable it needs no external power source, which makes it versatile and easy to use.

I bought this external burner a while ago and I have to say I haven't been disappointed. It still works perfectly.

I connected it to my Acer Aspire (windows 7) and it was immediately ready for use, no additional drivers needed. What is best: It doesn't need any external power, just the USB cable, which is provided. I haven't had any problems with burning. It is also relatively quiet.
Little extra: Comes with a nice little bag.

All in all, a fantastic item and excellent value for money!

For price, compact size, quietness of product and performance - this item is a must have.

It was a simple plug and play matter and the unit works so well with our Apple Mac Mini.

Would recommend it to anyone, especially if they are looking for a portable device, due to its dimensions.

Very happy with this purchase.

I purchased this blu ray burner because of the good reviews. In the beginning, it would not do anything, neither read nor write. Just loads of noise and then silence. I tried it with 3 different computers. When I was thinking of sending it back, it finally managed to read and write something after making a more promising set of sounds. Since then, it has been a time-consuming business. When inserting a good BD disk (Panasonic or other top brand, by the way; make sure you get a good brand, otherwise things go wrong lots of times), 2 times out of 3 it says it cannot write to it because the disc is closed, and please insert a blank one. So, a lot of computer rebooting until it finally recognises it as a blank BD, and then it is usually possible to write to it (if the software does not crash, that is). In my experience, writing from computer hard disk and from USB key is more likely to be successful than writing from an external HD.

All in all, very mixed feelings. Once the stuff is on the blu ray disc, it is great and should be safe for many years to come. But to get there, lots of hours invested and some frustration too.

PS. No sign of Panasonic brand anywhere any more, not even a sticker. Just plain Leicke. The computer identifies it as Matshita, though, which should be Panasonic.
