This is sorta neat. It’s the OWC Memory Pro Blu-ray Quad Interface—a mouthful to describe an external Blu-ray drive that can connect to your Mac or PC four ways. That is, Firewire 800, Firewire 400, USB 2.0 and eSATA. Too bad Firewire 400 is on its way out, though.
The drive, which starts at $499, can read and write Blu-ray discs, DVD, DVD-RAM (that’s still around?) and CD-R/RW. Those of you looking to add Blu-ray burning to your fancy new MacBook can now choose between this guy and that Amex model.
Being that we’re dealing with OWC, Mac users can rest assured that the drive works just fine with the likes of iDVD and Toast. Speaking of toast, if you pony up an additional $80, to $579, OWC throws in a copy of the latest version of Roxio Toast.
