    Hi guys.
    Just ordered a mac mini, that I will be dual booting with osx and win 7. I do have a bluray reader in my whs server, and I thought about getting an enclosure for it, but the only one I saw was an icydock that was about £35. I have had a look on ebay and seen quite a few slim bluray writers that are usb 2 for about £45-50. They do sell usb3 ones, but these start at about £60 direct from china. Firstly speed wise is there any massive gains from choosing usb3 over usb2 when it comes to using it with optical drives. And secondly can any recommend one?

    Thanks

    Nick
