Review: OWC MRSSBD6X 6x Blu-Ray reader with DVD burner
As 5.25-inch floppies fell before the might of 3.5-inch drives, so did the 3.5-inch to the Zip drive and other assorted media. The return of Steve Jobs to Apple heralded the death of the 3.5-inch drive, and his return also eventually kindled the wide acceptance of DVD Burners, what Apple called "Super Drives" like its ancient 3.5-inch HD cousin a decade before. Now, here we sit a full decade after the Super Drive (optical variety), and now the format is being purged from mainstream computers like its brethren. Once again, Apple led with the MacBook Air family about five years ago, but now, even many desktops and all-in-ones don't have the drive integral to the computer. Just the same, every once in a while, somebody hands over an optical disk that absolutely <strong>has</strong> to be read. Apple solutions purveyor OWC has an answer -- the <a href="">MRSSBD6X 6x Blu-Ray reader</a>, a USB 2.0 bus powered optical drive, capable of reading most optical media, and in its maxed out version, burning Blu-Ray disks as well. <em>Electronista</em> was given a chance to evaluate the Blu-Ray reader and DVD burner version -- <a href="">read our review</a> to see if the device is a must-add to your tech arsenal.<br /><br />
