$180 for a compact Bluray drive is a bit steep. I have one of these, but I only use it to play Blurays...https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-BDR-XD07J-UHD-Domestic-genuine-products/dp/B077SYZ6HT/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
Would this work with Macs if you used Parallels with it?
Could you please link some of these reviews.So you can both rip and burn Bluray CDs on that Pioneer?
For some other Bluray players I've seen, I read reviews that says that Bluray CDs can be played on Mac straight out of the box without needing extra software. Does that mean the hardware comes with software preinstalled?
