Because Optical Discs Still Matter
If you’ve purchased a new iMac®, MacBook®, MacBook Air®, MacBook Pro® with Retina® Display, Mac® mini, Mac Pro®, or any of a large number of Windows® PC models, you may have noticed something’s missing—there’s no optical drive. If you’re like countless other people, you still have CDs and DVDs (not to mention a Blu-ray Disc™ or two), and a computer with no way to use them. Sonnet makes it simple to restore what’s absent—just connect a Performer™ Blu-ray Player to load software, import CDs, burn CDs and DVD-ROMs, and play DVDs and even Blu-ray movies. You can even boot your Mac from an OS X DVD!Performer is a BD-ROM/8x DVD±RW drive that connects to and is powered by your computer’s USB port. There’s no need to connect a separate AC power supply. This Sonnet optical drive is compact—it’s about the size of two stacked CD cases—and takes up so little space, you can use it just about anywhere.
Blu-ray Movie Playback Software Included
If you’re a lover of movies, recent television shows, and documentaries, viewing them on Blu-ray disc offers an immersive experience, with pristine image quality and engrossing extras. Because support for Blu-ray disc playback is not native to OS X® or Windows®, you'll find the included Blu-ray player software(1) very handy, enabling you to watch Blu-ray movies on your computer or attached monitor.
