External Blu ray Drive BD Player

Reviewed by David • February 2, 2023

perfect for laptops or Mini PCs without DVD drive

I have 2 Mini PCs and 2 MacBook Airs at home, which don't have CD/DVD drives.
Let's face it, CDs and DVDs are considered obsolete now and they have been replaced by digital downloads/streams and Blu-ray discs. However, I still have tons of DVD movies that I have purchased and CDs that I want to listen to or to convert to digital format, not to mention my friends give me DVD data discs for photos that they have taken. For these reasons, I decided to buy external player that can not only read CD, DVD, and Blu-ray but it can also write to them! I have tons of recordable blank DVD and Blu-ray discs, which I use to back up family photos and important documents. What I really like about this drive is that it can be plugged into USB port as well as newer USB-C port.


[+] Can read any discs from CD, DVD, and even Blu-ray. Please note that you need special software to play Blu-ray movies on your computer though.
[+] Flexibility to connect using either USB 3.0 or the newer USB-C port
[+] The USB 3.0 and USB-C cable is built-in and has storage space under the player.
[+] It can also write to blank CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs, which is what I need it for backing up important files and family photos
[+] It can also write to M-Disc!
[+] Plug-N-Play ready. No need to install any software. It just works!


[-] Absolutely nothing!


Easily 5 out of 5 stars! I love this external drive that can read and write to any disc formats. I appreciate the dual connector design since new MacBooks only have USB-C ports. Highly recommend this amazing drive.
