    Just wondering if anyone knows of a USB3 BluRay drive that will work with Mac, and fast enough at reading to be able to take advantage of the bandwidth for backing up?

    Are you looking for a Bluray drive or a bluray player? There are several drives, but to actually play BLUray DVDs...you need the software which I think there are only 2 companies.

    Google has the results for blu ray drives here

    Thanks for the help - I'm looking for a drive, in order to a) backup/transcode films I own, b) transcode 3D films I own to side by side format, so I can stream them though Apple TV (though I wish they've do frame 120Hz frame interleaved 3D on the Apple TV, and make them available to buy in iTunes!)

    I have one currently, but it has a riplock limiting it to 2.2x bluray read, on the assumption the user is a pirate (which I'm not).
