There are plenty of people that want to add a Blu-ray burner into their daily routines, but might not have the know-how to do so. Now OWC (also known as Other World Computing) has announced its new line of OWC Mercury Pro Blu-ray “Quad Interface” external drive solutions.

The new drive will be the first to market that allows four different ways to connect: FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0, and eSATA. The company says the new drive also has a 4X Blu-ray write speed, which translates into a semi-painful 1GB per minute.

Still, you won’t be wasting any time with the install. Also, the Mercury Pro can read and/or write HD-DVD, DVD-RAM, and CD-R/RW.

Compatible with both Mac and Windows systems, the Mercury Pro is available now, starting at $499.99. If you want to add of Roxio Toast 9 Titanium (Mac OS X) into the equation, it will cost another $80.
