    People are not very smart

    • Written by from Hammond

    The reviews bashing this thing is nuts!!!!!! People complaining bc it doesn't have a eject button.. Seriously? If you knew 1/10 of anything about a Mac, you would know you can right click on the disc icon on the desktop and click EJECT!!!! Secondly, if the cord is too short for your use, buy a 2 dollar male to female USB adapter!!!!!!!!!!!! Third, take a chill pill, of course it doesn't work with your 1990 Mac desktop, the firmware is completely out of date.. Fourth, IT IS A DVD PLAYER, NOT A BLURAY PLAYER, of course it doesn't play BluRays. No where does it even lead you to believe it plays them. Apple can't just slap a BluRay drive in it.. It's called copyright laws. Sony owns the rights to BluRay... Tell them about it..

    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.

    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!

    Awesome Stuff!

    • Written by from Thomasville

    I bought this for my Air because I am going to need it going off to college, and it is so fast! I think Apple was very smart when they removed the internal CD drives, and started selling these! Good job once again, Apple!

    Excellent Apple Product

    • Written by from Canyon Country

    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.

    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!

    External DVD drive

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Wow! Love this product...works well with my MBAir! Response time is unbelievable. I enjoy the sleek and small laptop...hence the option of an external DVD drive. It's nice to have only when needed.

    Useful Drive

    • Written by from Topeka

    I have a MacBook Pro and you have to have one of these things because the new model MacBook is too thin to have one internally. Personally I could do with a computer that's a little bit thicker, but this thing isn't that expensive and in my experience works well. I've not burned any disks but have used the drive to install software and watch DVDs. Works fine for these two purposes.

    What Mac are you USING!!

    • Written by from North Salem

    All of the bad reviews don't state which version/model year/cpu of MB their using..To trash this drive before telling us is just poor reviewing..All the newer macs with retina work flawlessly with this drive..To write all these complaints and not telling us is a waste of everybodys time and causes a lot of confusion when deciding on a purchase..

    I dont know what all the complaints are about??

    • Written by from Highland Lakes

    This product is decently priced according to Apple's standards, and it does EVERYTHING it says it will do without any headache. Plug and play. No software required no drivers no headache just read write burn CD/DVD and even Dual Layer without a problem. Just bought one to go along with my 13" Macbook Pro w/ Retina and I am one happy man. Sure maybe Blu-ray would have been good but its not necessary I dont even own a Blu ray disc even though I own a blu ray player.....People complain and give low ratings because of UNREALISTICALLY high expectations and the fact that they want Apple products but wanna pay Samsung prices.

    Apple usb Superdrive

    • Written by from Shermans Dale

    Bought this drive to go along with the Mac Mini and I have to say it works perfectly! i was a bit skeptical at first when reading through some of the other reviews but after going forward with the purchase it was definitely a great buy! Solid, very compact, and easy setup! (just connect and your done) I have tested this with CD and DVD discs which it played both perfectly! Would definitely recommend this for any MAC without a built-in optical disc drive!

    Best match for the late 2012 iMac

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    After first installing (plugging in the USB) it din't do anything and would not accept a CD. So I unplugged and reinserted again - this time it took and I heard the little drive come to life. Make sure the USB is firmly inserted.

    Thereafter I burned my first CD. Opened up iTunes, created a New Playlist, selected Burn to Disc and then printed a jewel case that's pretty cool without having to do anything other than select Print/To Jewel Case or something like that.

    Just insert a CD and iTunes opens and asks if you want to add to the Library. What could be easier?

    The product is aluminum on it's upper side and plastic underneath. It has a large round non-skid pad that works perfect on the foot of the iMac. You push the CD in almost all the way and then it inserts it super fast automatically. Eject using several different ways from the screen.

    Meets all of my needs.

    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!

    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.

    I bought this with my new Mac Mini since I still burn and use CD/DVDs. It's quick, quiet and fast. Not a bad value, actually. Nice metal enclosure to match my Mini.
