    Preforms exactly as it is meant to

    My father bought this superdrive over 3 years ago when he bought a mac air. It has been used many times since then and still works as if it were brand new. I use it to watch DVDs and it works like a charm. It is fast and the small size makes it easy to use on the go. I am hoping to purchase two soon- one for me and one for my sister- due to the exceptional quality. Unlike many reviews, my experience has been awesome. There have been no problems such as the disks getting stuck, loud noises, lack of functioning, or anything else of the sort. I highly recommend this product, especially to students!

    This SuperDrive works great!

    I received shipment of my driver a week ago. After a simple plug and play I was ready to go. First off I had quite a backlog of CDs to transfer to iTunes. The first minor glitch was the method of ejection, which is not on the drive. A quick search of online manuals solved that quandary. A simple tap on the f12 key releases the CD smoothly and silently. I've already, in three days, imported over 75 discs without a single hang up. Mind you, these discs were in every quality grade imaginable. The small size of the drive is appreciated and being able to burn as well as import makes its versatility a real plus. I know that I could have bought a less expensive drive but I trust the Apple brand and I love the way it looks with my Mac mini in their brushed steel cases. Definitely a five star purchase.

    Perfect!

    I purchased it at the online Apple Store and it was delivered in one day. Free shipping. The packaging was great. The box was encased in a layer of foam. I plugged it into my MacBook Pro Retina 2015 and the DVD automatically mounted. It's a tad noisy but I stopped hearing the hum. It all just worked.

    I was going to buy it on Amazon for $2 less, then I read an Amazon review stating that the drives sold on Amazon weren't genuine Apple SuperDrives, so I went back to Apple.com.

    I was able to get all my pre-sales questions answered by chatting with Apple. That interface too was very Apple-like. Simple, nice to look at and easy to use.

    I'm glad I spent the extra bucks to get a genuine Apple product and encourage you to do so if you have a new SSD Macbook.

    Great little unit!!

    Just purchased this little unit. I am more than pleased. I had one disc not import and get stuck in the machine. Not difficult at all getting it to eject (just did a "force eject"). It was the disc's fault not the unit. I have imported about 26 CD's with out a problem, in fact I am importing as I write this review.Highly recommend!

    Six months and counting, works great!

    So far, it's a really great device for my needs.

    Burns DVD-Rs quickly and easily, matches my MBP, and doesn't give me any trouble. Mac simple, A+

    Exactly What Was Expected

    Beautifully Packaged, Quality Feel, Works On Every Disc I have Used So Far
    May be Double The Price Of Other External Drives But IT WORKS
    I wasted too much time with the cheap ones

    A Life saver!

    My boyfriend recently got me this for christmas and i absolutely love it! I don't understand what all the other reviews are talking about, it's fast, the disc ejects easily, AND music could be synced to the iTunes. Overall a really good product and would recommend to others.

    Reliable and efficient

    I have just finished putting all my audio cd's onto my iMac using this drive. It was a mammoth task the drive has had the best part of a 1000 cd's put through it with no jamming or issues with the drive and only 1 crash from iTunes. I have read the reviews and people have said it is slow and can jam but after processing that volume of CDs in a space of a week I can only compliment it on its efficiency and its value.

    We love our Superdrive!

    It's so small and it just works - so we love ours.
    We knew a superdrive was being excluded from all new iMacs so spent just a little more on one of these and it's been great!
    It reads discs that we knew to be unreadable by other drives. How about that!
    It's good and tiny and useful and is part of our Mac. Plus if it goes wrong (which it never has and we've used and used it for quite a while now), we know we can just unplug it, recycle it and plug in a new one at a very reasonable cost.
    Thank you Apple - this has been a good product for us. Seriously good value.

    Have owned for 3 years, no issues with my iMac 27

    Works as advertised, have owned for 3 years. I've burned hundreds of CDs and DVDs and played many, many more. Usually, if there is an issue, it's with the application I'm using and not with the device itself.

    You won't find a more stable and solid external USB CD/DVD player/writer in this price range.

    usb super drive

    The usb super drive for me works great. For the people that don't know how to use it need to figure it out, its not that hard. And if your DVD gets stuck in it then go to the Apple Store and they take it out and if you want a refund I'm pretty sure that they will give you one. Over all This super drive works really well.

    Most Simplest Plug and Play Device

    After reading the mixed reviews, I still decided to purchase this for my business needs. Can I tell you how awesome this is!? Plug it in, imac reads it instantly, and accepts installation cd's on a dime. To eject, just drop the CD icon in the trash. Bang!!! I was a PC user before and no doubt it would have taken longer to install such things (would have first detected new device and then would have wanted to install it). I am happy with the device in short! Get it, it wont play blue ray and scratch CDs from reading negative comments but thats like any dvd player. I look forward to burning my back up client photographs and such with this. I also love the slim design and yeah, the cord (USB) maybe a bit short but still reaches my imac ports at the back with the superdrive sitting on my desk.

    Enjoy!

    Great!

    I don't really understand all the negative reviews for this product - they prevented me from buying the SuperDrive for quite a while. Finally, I purchased it to use with my MacBook Air, as it has no internal CD drive. It's worked great for me - and I've been using it almost non-stop since I bought it! I would definitely recommend this - it's working well and the burn speed is much faster than any other external CD drive I've ever used.

    Performs well and looks great.

    Althought a little pricy, I did mind spending a little extra for the look and reliability. It fits my iMac perfectly and gets the job done. Great product!

    Apple Superdrive Tryout

    I don't understand all the negative ratings of this product. I tried it out tonight with a movie DVD, and a CD from work. It's pretty simple for me, just look around your screen and find what you need. It plays well, ejects well, piece of cake. I'm not an IT guy, and I'm 61. I do have mine plugged into a new MacBook Air. If you have it plugged into some garbage MS machine, well that's maybe your problem. BTW, this Apple stuff just works. That's all I want.
