Great item. To play a blu ray movie unable to use vga hook up. No big deal. To watch a blu ray on my computer have to hook up a HDMI cable and unplug the VGA. Works fine on my laptop without any extra steps.

Unit so far works ok. The reject button is flus with case making it dificult to reject disk inserter.
Product was delivered when promised. Works great. Thanks.
Works fine but it is NOT lightscribe9/30/2012
I like that it sits vertical and since my internal drive on my iMac died I am hooking it up to that. But in truth is advertising, this unit is not lightscribe

I just received the Memorex Blu-Ray Writer a few days ago. I made 2 blu-ray home movies so far with success. While this has USB 3.0 interface, I'm using a USB 2.0 on my pc. Even so speed is very good. It must be amazing using 3.0. So far very satisfied with the product. I have several other Memorex DVD Writers and give them high marks for quality and durability. I'm hopeful that the Blu-Ray writer will be as durable..only time will tell
Great product though it's bigger than ordinary USB hard drive.
Best external Blu-ray for the price9/27/2012
I tested this Magnavox external Blu-ray burner on a couple of DVD ISO images that used to make my older DVD burners choke. They came out fine. The only negative issue is the hobbled software. Although a good brand, the Cyberlink software is several versions out of date and will not perform certain functions in this limited edition version, e.g., burn an ISO image. However, full version software is not exorbitant.
