Product Information

The sleek, compact USB SuperDrive.
  • Everything you need in an optical drive.

    Whether you’re at the office or on the road, you can play and burn both CDs and DVDs with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It’s perfect when you want to watch a DVD, install software, create backup discs and more.

    Take it anywhere.

    Only slightly bigger than a CD case, the Apple USB SuperDrive slips easily into your travel bag when you hit the road, and takes up little space on your desk or tray table when you’re working.

    The essence of simplicity.

    You’ll never have to worry about lost cables with the Apple USB SuperDrive. It connects to your MacBook Pro with Retina display, MacBook Air, iMac or Mac mini with a single USB cable that’s built into the SuperDrive. There’s no separate power adaptor, and it works whether your Mac is plugged in or running on battery power.

    It looks similar to the previously released Super Drive. However Apple claims that this updated model supports the new Retina Display MacBook, as well as providing support for other macs that do not come equipped with a built-in drive. It is well constructed and from the moment you open the box, you know you are in for a high quality item.

    The drives footprint is no larger than a standard CD case; I have taken mine in my bag to work and had no problems with added bulk or weight. It connects to the mac via USB and there is no additional software to install. It has not failed to recognise any DVD or CD that I have inserted. With a slot loading mechanism, there are no buttons on the drive and no hatches to lift. Simply insert the disc by sliding it in the slot and remove via the on screen eject button. I feel obliged to add that the cable from the Super Drive is fairly short (~12 inches). This may be a pro or con, depending on your needs, but the cable can be extended using a usb extension.

    Conclusively, the Super Drive is a premium product that works well out of the box, and presents with no issues. What you are getting is a device that compliments the aesthetics of your mac and functions efficiently. 5/5

One caveat however, is that the usb lead used to connect the drive is ridiculously short which sometimes makes it inconvenient to use. You would think for the price charged Apple would supply an extension to the lead in case it was needed.

Stylish like Have owned this drive for just over a year, have used it only occasionally and until recently was very happy with it. Stylish like all Apple products and met my needs. However, recently it has stopped taking in disks and looks like a terminal failure. Would have expected better reliability for the price.

    It works really well but I think it would benefit a lot from having a detachable USB cable. Other than that, it's great!

    I bought this USB SuperDrive for my 15" retina display macbook pro.

    It's so easy to use, just plug into the USB port, and then I bought this USB SuperDrive for my 15" retina display macbook pro.

    It's so easy to use, just plug into the USB port, and then insert the disk as you would on a imac or an earlier version of the macbook pro. I have used this for DVDs and to rip CDs to itunes. It is also easy to backup music from itunes onto a CD.

    The cable is about 30cm. On a flat surface this is plenty to connect the SuperDrive while having the front of it face you, and have it a fair distance away from your mac.

    In conclusion it is a great product, easily connectable to your mac, and a sleek design matching the scheme of your mac.
