    ^^^ not exactly.

    That's about the cheapest external burner you can get, but you may run into compatibility issues with OS X or the iLife apps.

    Had terrible luck with Lite-On products, had 4 of their burners die in our office about a year or so ago. Of course, all out of warranty. One cooked a firewire port too we believe. Also, they seem to be touchy with what disks you use, we had many failed burns and disks that wouldn't mount afterwards. Vowed never to buy their products again.

    I hope you have better luck though. :)

    I had lite-on burners for around 8 years no problems. I have around 5 in my PC's, still good.
