samsung-blu-ray-SE-506CB-RSBD-black Today only, Newegg offers the Samsung USB Slim Portable Blu-ray/DVD Writer (model SE-506CB/RSBD) for $84.99. Coupon code EMCWWWG26 drops the price down to $63.74 with free Supper Eggsaver shipping. That’s a savings of over $26 compared to retail, over $16 better than its average selling price, and a match for the best deal we have ever seen. It’s also much cheaper than an Apple Superdrive (which doesn’t support Blu-ray).

It’s rated 4.4 out of 5 stars from 141 Amazon reviewers and is currently the best selling external Blu-ray drive on Amazon.

Apple may not be incredibly fond of Sony’s Blu-ray technology, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to read/rip/write Blu-ray discs with Mac OS X.

Mac users can utilize two free pieces of software to rip and convert Blu-ray discs. Also, you can burn Blu-ray data discs directly from Mac OS X Finder, but you’ll need a full-featured program like Toast to burn discs for playback.

Use your savings to pick up a spindle of blank Blu-ray discs.
