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.

    This, however, plugs the gap just nicely.
    I bought this so that I could upload all of my music CD's and ripped DVD's to my iTunes library.
    This it has done without any problem whatsoever. Simply plug in the USB and you're good to go.
    It's design is sleek and unobtrusive and it sits comfortably on the desk whilst the finish compliments the iMac, keyboard and magic trackpad nicely.
    All in all it has performed as well as the built-in drive on my wife's MBP and I would happily recommend it to anyone.

    I'm not sure what people's general opinions are about the removal of built-in optical drives, but honestly I'm glad my MacBook Pro I'm not sure what people's general opinions are about the removal of built-in optical drives, but honestly I'm glad my MacBook Pro didn't come with one when I ordered it late-2013. Naturally it meant I had to buy an external optical drive and I have used it plenty of times. I have never had any serious issues; the only minor problems I've had is when I've been using blank discs and not told the drive to do anything with it so then the MacBook Pro stops recognising there's a disc in there. But that's the advantage of it being external - No force eject required, I could just unplug and plug it back in again!

    Really easy to use and having it means I can also lend it to my dad when he needs to use discs. Highly recommend this if you use discs on a reasonably regular basis.

    I have been using a Mac since 1992. I have upgraded appropriately over all those 22 years and consider myself an Apple nerd. My PC I have been using a Mac since 1992. I have upgraded appropriately over all those 22 years and consider myself an Apple nerd. My PC associates, friends, family, business contacts all consider me to be really stuck back in the 20th century.

    Despite this I have just purchased yet another iMac. OS X Yosemite. Beautiful. Started to set up a printer (also brand new) only to discover there was no optical drive on my new machine. Apple support told me that Apple consider these to be obsolete. Pardon me Mr Apple. You didn't tell me. Long story short. I had to buy an external device - the superdrive whatsit. Arrived today. Plugged it in. Nothing appeared on my desktop. Murky looking blue icon in the dashboard. Inserted printer set-up disc. It whirred reassuringly then spat it out. Again and again. And again. No messages, alerts. Nada` I must be an idiot.
