    Default Need recommendations for a external bluray drive.

    So I'm wanting to play and rip blurays on my new 27inch iMac, but need advice on which ones are worth buying. I'm wanting to rip my bluray and did collection to something like plex or store them on a hard drive.

    Default Need recommendations for a external bluray drive.

    This is the one I have. I like it a lot. The write speed is fast and it's USB 3.0.
    LG Electronics 14X USB 3.0 Super-Multi External Blu-ray Disc Rewriter BE14NU40 (DVD+/-RW with M-DISC Support) (Certified Refurbished) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FIQKG54...mUvbUpU2773499

    EDIT: I just noticed that link I posted is for a refurb. It looks like it's discontinued because the new prices on it are ridiculous. Still, they're all about the same. Stick with USB 3.0 if you can.

    Well, one of those third party sellers is Amazon. I trust them more than I trust most brick and mortar retailers. It looks good though. Are you just looking for a read drive? If that's the case you can't go wrong for $26.
