    Very nice

    • Written by from Chardon

    Small, light, solidly built and works like a champ. My 2013 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display needed an optical drive, and this fits the bill perfectly! A good value as well!

    It's a perfect fit.

    • Written by from Helena

    It performs flawlessly and looks beautiful doing it, as is the standard for Apple.

    Pros: Quite, Compact, Unobtrusive, Simple, Pro, A match for the MacBook Pro.

    Cons: There doesn't appear to be a manual eject...I don't know if this will ever be a problem. ...an green light similar to the Magsafe would be a nice bonus.

    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.

    So Far So Good

    I've only used it a few times but so far it does what it is supposed to do. It's quiet and fast.

    Excellent

    • Written by from TYLER

    This device gets such a bad rap, it works in a particular way and works well once you get a feel for it.

    It is just like the 8x Superdrive in the non-retnia MBP, which is why I purchased it for my MBPr. I had a few growing pains with this maybe the first 2-3 uses, BUT I got it down and I feel like it is a quality product to pair with my MBPr.

    THE COOLEST OPTICAL DRIVE YET!

    • Written by from Mooresville

    I purchased this drive because I wanted to install some software. My dad has a LG external drive and it's great. However the download speed is no where's near this thing! I have heard that the CD's or DVD's can get stuck in the device and this happened to my uncle but he too it back and they pulled one off the shelf and said "here you go". Very impressed with Apple's products. You get what you pay for!

    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.

    Remarkable product

    • Written by from Tecumseh

    I am new to the Mac industry, so I'm not up on all the latest and greatest devices for the Mac. Recently I purchased an Apple USB SuperDrive. It's a top-of-the-line product. I put in a CD DVD and it automatically imports. The Apple USB SuperDrive is a remarkable product thank you!

    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.

    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.

    Works just fine.

    I like the eject-less button feature. This device has a very clean design and looks perfect sitting next to my Macbook Air. I have no complaints. It does exactly what it is supposed to accomplish.

    Very pleased

    • Written by from Portland

    I've recently purchased the drive and have listened to around 60+ CDs from store quality to backups made. From the reviews I was expecting problems, but I have not had one problem with any of the CDs. All were readable. I'm impressed at the speed while importing to make backups.

    This is an excellent cd drive. I have used it to rip multiple CDs and DVDs that I own to my MacBook Pro Retina. It was worked flawlessly and quickly. A great product in my opinion.

    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.

    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.
