UPDATE - Oct 18, 2012 - As promised, I have increased my rating to 4-stars due to the new lower price that this is now being sold at, as of today ($240).

-Original Review-

This product is GROSSLY OVERPRICED at $380!!!

This is a good product that works as advertised. The BIG problem I have with this product is the PRICE! LaCie is selling a $110 Pioneer BDR 206 drive, installed in their standard LaCie USB 2.0/Firewire 400 enclosure, for $380! That means you are paying $270 JUST for their enclosure! Why do they think this pricing is acceptable?

LaCie makes wonderful external drive enclosures that look good and work very well. So why only one star? Because of the outrageous price markup! LaCie does not make any Blu-ray or DVD drives themselves. In the case of this product all they make is an external USB/Firewire 400 enclosure, then they drop in a Pioneer BDR 206 internal SATA drive, and JACK UP the price! I really hate when peripheral manufacturers try to take advantage of Mac users by jacking up the price on products targeted for Mac-Users, ESPECIALLY when they are the same products being sold in the PC market for less. What have we done to deserve this gouging?

The GOOD NEWS is that you can accomplish the same thing by buying the Pioneer BDR drive separately for $110:
Pioneer Internal Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Writer BDR-206 (Black)

Then buy this LaCie DVD burner that uses the SAME USB 2.0/Firewire 400 external enclosure for only $90:

I never take the time to review the stuff I get. This however, has been great. I literally plugged it in to my MacBook Pro ( I did have Toast Titanium already installed) and started burning Blu-Ray disks. It's relatively fast, and so far all discs have played. I have used it to burn Blu-Ray discs as well as burn and copy SD DVD's. I've used it via fire-wire and USB with little difference in speed. It is expensive, but If you need a Blu-Ray burner for a Mac- it's great. I have an HD video camera and was tired of viewing lower quality SD video. No you can't watch Blu-Ray's on it - that's not what it was intended for.

The good

Comes with great pack-in software! They give you a Full copy of Toast 10 Titanium complete with Tivo DVR integration and Blu-Ray plug-in extensions, plus some cool tools to aid in creating archival backups and a Remote Burn app that allows anyone on the network to burn to this shared BD-R. Toast 10 also supports remote burning.

The bad

I've got a MacBook Pro unibody (gen 5,1) and when it comes to choice in external blu-ray burners there basically isn't any. This is the only one that I could find that actually said OSX was supported, but I'm very happy with what I ended up with given the lack of options.

The ugly

The design of device itself. Silver and black is cool and all, but the way they did it with this it doesn't look nearly as beautiful as "the usual" Lacie product.

The LaCie d2 Blu-Ray 12x USB 2.0 and FireWire Drive (301906U) does the job, but like others have said, is overpriced. Having read David C. Franklin's very helpful review from June 6th, 2011, I decided to follow his recommendation to buy the same Pioneer Blu-Ray drive that LaCie uses in their d2 Blu-Ray writer and install the drive in a LaCie 22X d2 DVDRW DL Lightscribe USB2.0 and FireWire (301484U) enclosure (link #1 below). Rather than use the Pioneer BDR-206 that David recommends, I decided to use the updated version of the drive, the Pioneer BDR-207DBK (link #2 below).

Link #1: LaCie 301484U 22X d2 DVDRW DL Lightscribe USB2.0 and FireWire US
Link #2: Pioneer Electronics USA Internal BD Writer (BDR-207DBK)

Provided you have some basic skills, disassembling the LaCie 22X d2 DVDRW DL Lightscribe USB2.0 and FireWire (301484U) and installing the Pioneer BDR-207DBK Blu-Ray writer is a relatively simple process.

Drive Removal:
1. Remove the two screws at the rear of the enclosure and remove the cover plate.
2. Remove the enclosure's two rounded plastic side pieces by gently pushing in plastic tabs (on side pieces).
3. Next, slide the top metal cover away from the front of the unit while gently lifting up.
4. Once the top cover is removed, unscrew the four (4) philips head screws from the sides of the enclosure.
5. Unplug the two wire connections at the rear of the drive.
6. Now that the optical drive is free, remove it from the enclosure by gently lifting it up and out (vertically).
