I'm looking for a good/cheap external Bluray drive for ripping my Blurays that compatible with my Macbook Pro, Was looking at some online but don't know what to get. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I've been using a Samsung SE-506CB RSBD.
I've ripped about 100 DVD's and 50 BluRays with it since I bought it.
Before its latest firmware update I would, on rare occasions have problems with it not seeing the disc. I found unplugging it from the USB and plugging it back in would temporarily fix the problem. Since the latest firmware (TS02) I haven't had to do that. However I don't know if thats because I've been lucky or its been fixed. It wasn't a "reported problem" so it may have just been my hardware (computer or burner).
Even with that said I would still recommend it.
I have NOT tried to burn any CD's, DVD's, or Blu Rays with it. So I can't comment on that aspect. But for purely ripping disc its been fine.
The drive comes with Windows software so you'll need your own software but set up is just plug and play. MakeMKV, Handbrake, OS X Dvd software and others work fine.
Hope this helps.
