    Looking into buying an external optical drive for my Macbook Pro, can anyone tell me what some good ones are? Which ones should I stay away from? This is all new to me. Thanks for the help.

    I would post this in the MacBook Pro sub-forum, or do a quick search.

    Mac Peripherals would be a good place to look too.

    The fastest (14x) BluRay writer would be the LG BE14NU40, which would however be rather stationary.

    If all you want is a BluRay reader (and CD/DVD writer/reader) take a look at the iClover, which would be more suitable to be tossed into a bag.

    Words of warning: the Apple USB SuperDrive has a non-detachable cable. It's a bit of a nuisance.
