Blu-Ray burner for Mac, iMac, MacBook with USB 3.0 or USB-C

A Blu-Ray burner for Mac, iMac, MacBook and the MacBook Pro 2016 from Apple ensures that you can save backups of the system and individual data, private copies of films or series, photos, videos and more on a Blu-Ray disc. In addition, the BD drives are mostly multifunctional, so that you can also use them to play Blu-Rays and burn or play CDs and DVDs. If Data Backup or Private copy, disc burning is also in the age of Cloud not completely out yet.

Blu-ray burner for Mac, MacBook and Co.

Depending on the number of storage layers and other factors, different numbers of GB can be stored on a Blu-Ray disc. 25 GB can be accommodated on a conventional Blu-Ray with one layer (single layer). If you want to burn more onto the Blu-Ray, then a double layer disc with 50 GB might be right for you. With Blu-Ray XL (BDXL) you can use a professional type of data archiving and save up to 128 GB on one disc.

There are different models for burning Blu-Ray discs on an Apple computer or Windows PC. Here are the two best that are very positive on Amazon:

We have been writing the year 2017 for a few moons, but a Blu-Ray burner with USB-C for the current MacBook Pro from Apple as well as other systems with USB-C resp. Thunderbolt 3 haven't come across me yet. The following model is available for this, with which you can at least play and write DVDs and CDs:

Biscon Tech USB-C burner
The following discs can be read and written to: CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-RW, DVD ± R, DVD ± R DL, DVD ± RW and DVD-RAM. Can be connected to the new MacBook Pro with USB-C directly and without an adapter. Different colors on the product page.

Adapter for USB-C to USB-A
