Rating: 3/5 Replacing the same model that became unreliable right after the warranty expired July 25, 2016 So far this one is working, no lost discs. It replaced the same model I ordered a while ago to set up a dual BluRay burning station in my old MacPro tower. That one became unreliable and would stall while burning either DVDs or BluRays ruining the discs. I still have it in an external enclosure as it reads fine. The other BluRay burner in the MacPro is an older model from LG and it is doing just fine.

Perhaps I just "lucked" out and got a bad one.
