Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by not fully Mac compatible. Packaging indicates Mac compatible. Included software only for windows. Free to download software is not upto much. Returned &refunded no hassle 12 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Samsung Blu-Ray Writer SE-506CB The unit comes in a nice finish and plugs in with ease using the USB cable. It played a couple of Blu-ray discs ok and the results were very good on screen. The reason i can't give it 5 stars is 1. It comes with no soft wear what so ever to run this on and iMac, even though i brought the one in the show for Mac's. You can go to Samsung's web site, but still you won't find any soft wear to run this with. I down loaded a free player of Apples site which plays ok, but won't let you write to the disc, so i need to download some other soft wear to do that. 2. The USB cable provided is very short, so if you need a cable longer then 30cm you will need to go buy another. 25 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent easy to use, blue ray good, HD especially clear, over all a highly recomended 10 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really useful addition for storage Only used this once to test . It worked very well. Only big complaint is with the sub cable not being long enough and with a tendancy not to fit in securely enough. Overall I would recommend this product as good value. 10 June 2015
