I've been burning family movies on to DVD's in the past on my PC but with my videos being in HD and now using Final Cut Pro I think that's kind of a waste of quality.

I've never owned a Blu-ray burner before so I'm coming to you fine folks for suggestions.

I have a 2011 iMac that I'm working on and would like to know what you might recommend as a suitable yet not too expensive External Blu-ray burner to get the job done.

Thanks for any assistance and input. I do appreciate it.

I'm not sure what sort of prices you've been coming across so far...but check some of these out for comparison:

Thanks for the link Nick. I don't know what's good or not but I'll continue to research.

Are all the burners compatible with Mac? Most I've looked at make no mention of PC or Mac, just that they are plug and play.

All of the ones in the link are compatible...since OWC is a Mac specific supplier.
