    Great product!

    • Written by from Laredo

    I bought this drive for late 2012 iMac. I brought it home and connected it to download some CDs I wanted on my iTunes account. No problems here! I was able to eject each CD without any drama or problems. Fast enough for my iMac. Great product.

    Perfect DVD Drive for MacBook Pro Users

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I purchased this drive apprehensively because of all of the bad reviews. But I was not disappointed. I think there are many inaccurate reviews of this drive which have driven down the overall rating for this product. It works exactly as described and I am using it to rip DVDs so I can watch them on an iPad and iPhone. Works perfectly and is faster than I expected. I can rip a DVD movie in about 20-30 minutes depending on the length of the movie. Overall, I would highly recommend this drive.

    Perfect addition for the MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Just got a new MacBook. The only problem was not having a CD drive built in. However the Super Drive solves that problem very well. Currently using to add music to ITunes and it works perfectly. I would definitely recommend this drive for anyone who needs an external drive.

    Works Perfect

    I had it for a little over a year and no flaws. When i see all these negative reviews people must be doing something wrong. Those complaining about no reject button hello the reject button is on the top far right.

    Easy to use and great design!

    • Written by from Bath

    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.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Houston

    Just got a new MBPr, and found that to use my old copy of Windows 7 in Bootcamp, I'd need an external drive. I thought I could get away with using my superdrive on my old MBP or iMac, but...of course not.

    Bought it, hooked it up, and loaded Windows. Ejected disk just fine. No problems whatsoever. I'll probably use it for burning iTunes CD's, as I don't watch movies much on my computer.

    Best For My MacBook Airs

    • Written by from Conroe

    These have been great to have as I have a MBA at home and another one at the office, and they are speedy replacements for the old DVD/CD burners I used to own that took up valuable space. These fit right underneath my Apple displays and have a very small footprint and an extremely low profile. I love mine and being bus powered they are absolutely so handy to have and use. I couldn't get by without them and I'll never go back to anything else.

    I am not really sure why some people are complaining, Ive yet to have very many issues with any Mac product. This Driver works great on my 2012 Macbook Air. I wonder if some people didn't read what it's compatible with first or if they are just using it wrong. This is pretty simple to use and if you need a longer cord just match up a male to female for a longer cord. Ejecting isn't hard most have a eject button on their keyboard just right click on the disc icon. That's what I've done and had zero issues. I mainly burn from CD's to my iTunes. If your having issues just call a apple rep or go to the store they are always helpful to me.

    works great, works quietly

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Bought Apple's external optical drive for a 2013 Macbook Pro Retina as while I don't use a drive often, I do have DVD's I want to watch (don't care for BlueRay) and the occasional transfer of software from a CD. I've played about 30 DVD's so far and it's done very well. I initially compared it to another well rated drive, with a single USB cord, from another prominent company and preferred Apple's (obviously). The extra $40 was worth it. I like that when playing a DVD on Apple's drive it is near soundless; I realize this only matters if you are playing quiet music or you are sensitive to extraneous hums and clicks when you sit near an object, but to me it matters. I also like that Apple's doesn't have extra moving parts like a tray for the DVD that has to be ejected and pushed in each time. Lastly, the aesthetics are far better on Apple's (like all their products)... it isn't a light weight cheap plastic box, it feels solid and it looks sleek.

    The Apple USB SuperDrive makes downloading my CDs and soft wear efficient and i have noticed that downloading speed is faster then the drives that comes with the laptops. The only downfall with having it external is that when travelling it is annoying having to take and find space to put it. I am very happy with the SuperDrive and haven't had any difficulties with it such as it not ejecting and not having an ejecting button on it, my MacBook always picks it up.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Torquay

    For the price point of $99, this was a great investment for my iMac. (The occasional burn to DVD for work and for watching movies). No issues with reading or writing. Simple and elegant design. Just works.

    Flawless Operation

    • Written by from Live Oak

    I purchased this drive to load software and to view dvd movies. It works with my macbook air with absolutely no issues. I have noticed that some people have complained about it, but I suspect it's because they are using an older mac and this drive is compatible with Apple's newest offerings.

    Elegant and easy to use

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Although I think Apple's race to eliminate optical drives from even its desktop computers in the pursuit of slimness is a bit excessive and also premature, I've had only good results with this drive. I use it with my iMac and my Retina MacBook Pro with absolutely no issues. It plays and burns DVDs without complaint, working exactly as expected after nearly one year of use. The aluminum enclosure is solid and I find the slot-loading mechanism to be reliable. In contrast, the Samsung Blu-Ray drive I also use is plastic and somewhat flakey in its behaviour.

    Almost perfect but would be with blue ray!!!

    • Written by from brisbane

    I can't fault this drive. The disks slide in with ease, the build quality is amazing and it is very small and perfect for taking anywhere. The only things that i would change is the addition of Blue ray and a physical eject button on the drive. Overall this drive is perfect for my needs and it is definitely worth the small extra cost over a cheap drives by other companies which i have had bad experiences with in the past. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a small, good quality drive that they can take anywhere.
