    Blu ray will require third party software OS X has no bluray compatability.

    I also just got this model, well, the silver version. BDR-XD05S. Best Buy seems to have the best price at $75. I picked it up a few days ago, so I don't really have anything to say about it yet, but it was the top pick here: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-external-blu-ray-drive/
    (well, the top pick for a portable model.) They did a pretty extensive review.

    Second this. Its an excellent drive & works well alongside MacGo's blu ray player.
