Macworld Buying Advice
If you’re looking to add an external optical drive to your Mac, the LaCie d2 Blu-ray Professional BD-R, BD-RE Drive is worth considering, especially if you have other LaCie d2 drives on your desktop. It’s an average performer and worked flawlessly with FireWire 400. If your Mac doesn’t have FireWire, and you want to use Toast, then you’ll either want to look at another drive, like the Buffalo MediaStation or check with LaCie to see if that bug has been addressed.
