    Great drive perfect companion for any mac

    • Written by from Lincoln

    I own a video production studio and I own 6 newer Mac computers three are new 27 inch iMacs they all use this superDrive, I have also used this same superDrive on older computers that I have since traded in, all of them have always worked flawlessly. Even a few times when I used a clients corrupted disk I have had no problem ejecting the disc like I used to have on the Macs that had an internal disk drive. As far as Blu-ray is concerned I use A Lacie works great but it's pricey. My opinion is that Blu-ray is going to go the same way as VHS tape. Yes it gives a beautiful picture but so do most of the Digital devices available today. Ask yourself do you really watch as many Blu-rays as you used to since there is so much stuff on line right now and it's only going to get a lot better. Follow apples lead. There's a reason they don't put internal drives in their new computers. One last thought never buy any drive that requires two USB cables to supply enough power, in my opinion they are junk.

    It's only been a few hours, and I love it!

    • Written by from Evansville

    When I got my MacBook Pro back in February, I was a little disappointed that I couldn't have a CD drive due to its thinness. But lo and behold, I found the SuperDrive, which has proven itself worthy in the short time I've had it. As a professional photographer, I've been forced to go burn my discs on a PC, which has been incredibly frustrating. But the SuperDrive has made it almost too easy! It is definitely worth the investment!

    Beautifully Designed Product

    • Written by from winnipeg

    I took the product out of the box, admired the beautiful, simple, slim design. Plugged it into my Macbook Pro w/Retina Display. Inserted a blank cd and burnt a audio cd from iTunes. It worked simply, efficiently and ejected without the slightest bit of hassle. Apple never ceases to amaze.

    Does the job my Mac Should Already Do!!

    • Written by from Houston

    I purchased my fourth MacBook Pro today. It's been 4 years since I purchased my last MacBook Pro The USB SuperDrive is great, and it does it's job well....HOWEVER, why must I go out and spend another $80 to get my optical disk drive back after spending $2600 on a new Mac??? All my other Mac's came with a built-in SuperDrive. I know most software is available for download these days, but I can't burn CD's and DVD's without an optical drive (something I do several times a day as a musician and photographer), I can't format and perform clean install of a Mac without an optical drive to boot OS X from, I can't install Windows via BootCamp without an optical drive, and most importantly, without an optical drive I can't save a copy of my favorite artist's newest CD to my Mac for listening on the go or syncing with my iPhone or iPad! I came very close to buying a Certified Refurbished MacBook from Apple that was a couple years old, just so I could get the built-in optical drive, but for the money, it made more sense to buy a new one and pickup an external optical drive....unfortunately :(

    Glad I did it

    • Written by from North Plainfield

    I've wanted this superdrive for a long time but the reviews have been all over the place. I absolutely love it. It did freeze one time but all i did was restart my computer and it adjusted itself. No problem ejecting. A few different ways to do it without turning it upside down as some people have said. Silly! Reasonably priced and so far, dependable. After all, if anything goes wrong i can return it to the store. easy!

    Superdrive

    • Written by from Delta

    I recently decided that I would like to purchase the Apple Superdrive, upon reading the reviews, I was quite discouraged at all the negative comments. I visited an Apple Store, and spoke with one of there Tech Employees, voicing my concerns. He assured me that he had been using this product for the past couple of years and never had a problem, he also informed me that to his knowledge, any Superdrives's sold in his store had not been returned. I purchased the drive, and sceptically, connected it to my Mac Air. As one of the common complaints seems to be with the "Eject Disk " I went into settings and clicked on import, and then eject disc upon completion of importing files. To my delight this product did everything that I hoped it would do I have ripped dozens of CD's into my ITunes Library, watched a couple of Music Dvd's with no problems { not Blue Ray } and everything works great. Would I recommend this product? Absolutely, as long as u read the fine print as to which Mac's and operating systems it will work on. Don't forget this device is not a Blue Ray Player.

    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 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.

    Superdrive

    • Written by from Midland

    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.
