CNET Editors' review
If you have a Blu-ray player and don't want to or can't use a native Mac media player app, Mac Blu-ray Player can be used to view Blu-rays in addition to DVDs, but some may find the price tag for the full version too high.
The installation and setup of a free trial version of Mac Blu-ray Player for Mac went smoothly. The initial menus are intuitive and well-designed. The trial version will only function a limited number of times, however, before the user must buy the full version at $59.95. Technical support is available, and the developer's Web site is user-friendly. After we inserted a disc, the program recognized and started playing it quickly and cleanly. Menus for controlling the movie playback are easy to locate and use. In addition to DVDs and Blu-rays, the player can handle several other video file formats and those for audio. The program purports to allow users to include their own subtitles, though we didn't test this.
While Mac Blu-ray Player is well-designed and functional, those looking for a simple disc player app may find its high price off-putting. However, if you have an external Blu-ray player and your Mac does not have native software to accomodate it, this program may be an attractive option.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mac Blu-ray Player for Mac 2.7.6.
Mac Blu-ray Player is a universal media player for Mac. It can also play Blu-ray on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch through its exclusive technical innovation - AirX. It can not only play HD Blu-ray movies, but also support any formats of movie, video, audio, music and photo you have ever seen. Adding DTS5.1 makes its outputting quality even better.

"Fantastic after service."
Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 184.108.40.2066
I'm here to say something grateful to this team and this software.
One: this bluray video player meets lots of my desire on enjoying movies.
Two: one day, one of my disks called Chronicle can not be playback by using this video player suddenly and i'm confused what to do. So i tried to contact macgo's customer service for help. You know what, their attitude is great. They asked me for some information about my PC, bluray drive, and disk for testing and solved the problem soon finally with their exclusive T-shirt for showing sorry.
Three: they are still keeping developing with their hundred percent hardworking.
Sometime it's not stable, but it's ok, because i know they are still working on making their software perfect.
There is no such thing as a free lunch. The money we paid for this mac bluray player is for getting the best service, and in fact mac bluray player makes it.
"Best Blu-ray Player software I have been looking for."

I am so happy to see a new update version of Mac Blu-ray Player. It has been half an year since I got it during which period I saw its great improvement relating to functions.I have to admit it becomes more and more comfortable and considerate for users. I love this elite Blu-ray tool so much. Compared to others, I dare say its effortless operation and multifunction must be a great success over other products. Not to mention its excellent video effect and extra supporting all kinds of media formats. One word "good value for money".
I tried the AirX in this new version just to find the slake video. I don't know why.
