Rating: 5/5 Great Blu-ray drive June 8, 2017 I mounted this in my Mac Pro (Early 2009 8-Core), and now have a great internal Blu-ray drive that is quick and quiet in operation, and is still there after my machine wakes from sleep! Very happy.

Rating: 5/5 Blu-ray on Mac December 8, 2016 Blu-ray on my Mac! At last. I've been delaying getting a blu-ray player for my Mac. One issue is the tray door is too tall for the LG to be internal but it works just fine as an external drive
