Apple USB SuperDrive

  • Overview

    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.

      Perfect DVD drive for Macbook Air Users

      For some reason, the burning speed is much faster on this SuperDrive than other standalone DVD drives you find on Amazon. I tried the Amazon Basic DVD drive, bu For some reason, the burning speed is much faster on this SuperDrive than other standalone DVD drives you find on Amazon. I tried the Amazon Basic DVD drive, but the speed is so slow that I had to return it. The Apple USB SuperDrive doesn't have this problem, though.

      Good idea, but limited.

      This is a good idea when it comes to improving the design of the MacBooks, but for the hassle and the cost, you'd think it could be blu-ray capable. Seriously.

The retina display has a resolution of 2880 x 1800. I think it's time for 1080p viewability.

Although it still irks me that such a device is even necessary in this day and age. Sure improved portability is a nice feature but taking away the optical disk drive to do so seems silly. Overall no complaints, however.

It gets near to the the end of ripping a CD and gives up and spits it out. Very disappointed looking to get another cheaper make.

      non compatible with Mac booker

      I bought this together with the MacBook Pro without DVD drive. The first time I used, it stuck DVD disc, went to store changed to a new one, stuck again. This p I bought this together with the MacBook Pro without DVD drive. The first time I used, it stuck DVD disc, went to store changed to a new one, stuck again. This product cannot use track pad holding with power key to start function. It is not recognized by my old macbook pro either. How can apple sell an external DVD drive product do not compatible with its own without DVD drive Macbook pro?!
