    I am looking into an external Blu Ray writer/burner for my Mac Pro and I did google them except everything I read was early 2010, so I am curious if anyone has suggestions that may be new.

    Looking for FireWire 800, simple set up, and a good warranty. Though I know I will have to jump through a few hoops to get video to the drive. Besides using it for video I like the idea for using it for storage.

    The LaCie drive I looked at had mixed reviews so I am not sure about LaCie. I loved LaCie until my Porsche external HD drive died after 2 years and their warranties are bad, maybe they changed. Granted I have had a Maxtor external HD drive that has died 3 times, at least Maxtor keeps giving me new drives with their 5 year warranty. I know drives don'y last forever, but 2 years was pretty bad in my opinion.

    Thanks for any info
