    Works Great!

    I purchased my Superdrive when i bought my MacBook Pro back in January. I've imported most of my CD's with it and they've all come out sounding perfectly. It's compact and I can bring it with me anywhere I go. I would recommend it if you need an optical drive for your Mac or MacBook.

    Excellent Drive

    I went for this drive because it matches the aesthetics of my other apple products. I've had it for about 4 years and have only had one problem, admittedly it was probably my fault for putting a disk in there that was in less than stellar shape. Overall flawless AND pretty. I've imported over 100cds with this thing and it's still going. I only wish it was a bit faster.

    No problems here

    I purchased the Apple USB SuperDrive despite the less than enthusiastic endorsement of some users.

    To date, I've experienced no problems with it whatsoever while playing movies (which is my main purpose for buying it). Quite literally, plug and play without drama or poor performance. Recommend if you need for play back. For more advanced usage, read other reviews to get a better idea.

    Impressed

    Was worried after reading the reviews but over the last 2 days I've watched a movie, downloaded 6 photo back-up cds and imported about 45 music cds with not a single issue. Complaints about no eject button is easily accomplished using the eject button on my keyboard or the onscreen eject. I am happy!

    Crossing Fingers

    So Far, so good. My experience is that most external optical drives receive, at best, mediocre reviews. I bought this drive today for my late 2012 iMac, and have successfully ripped 2 CDs so far. I don't know why Apple doesn't just include a built in optical drive anymore. Whatever. I'll come back later after a few days, or weeks, with an update. Right now, I'm just crossing my fingers that this thing works out.

    Excellent as always

    The SuperDrive is as excellent as any other Apple product you would buy. It runs at almost no sound whatsoever and runs very efficiently. Its small form factor means you can place it with ease just about anywhere on your desk with your Mac or even take it with you to plug into your MacBook! Very pleased.

    Apple SupperDrive

    I have just finished reading all the reviews and I'm just confused now, I have had a superdrive for over a year now and it has worked wonderful, but most of the reviews say its unreliable and bad.

    It is a wonderful Apple product and I'm buying another one soon. Keep up the awesome work Apple!

    superdrive

    I purchased mine in 2011 and I have had no problems with it at all. I actually have it in my classroom and I am going to get another one for my house.

    Had mine for around 18mo, no problems.

    Works fine, no issues with reading/burning DVDs on my 15" MBP Retina. It definitely doesn't work well with cheap DVD blank media, has to use B-grade or higher. Can't use it with a hub, must be plugged in directly. Overall, a solid little box that does its job. Low review ratings are confusing as it's rated well elsewhere online.

    Exactly What My Mac Needed

    Apple is not shy about charging exorbitant prices for some accessories. Having paid $30 for many cables, adapters etc., $79 seems like an absolute bargain for a sleek drive like this. It plugs in, does what it's supposed to do and has the expected Apple fit and finish. I'm skeptical of reviews that say it worked for a day then quit, yada yada... I've had more Apple devices than I can count and anything like that is a rare exception that is always easily remedied and often either user error or a system conflict of some kind.

    Works right out of the box!

    Plug and play! And, as usual, Apple provides a simple, elegant design with its smaller base.

    Great Drive

    i was hesitant to purchase this storage drive based on some of the reviews I read online. But i did go ahead and purchase this about a week ago, and so far I am very pleased with the performance of this drive. I've burned a CD, reviewed some old CDs I had in my files and installed the 2016 Turbo Tax software. Everything worked well. I will caution you that the User Guide provided doesn't provide much information, but the online prompts given by the drive work well. I would definitely purchase this drive again and recommend ito my friends and family.

    SuperDrive has been super

    This drive was purchased to compliment a 13" mid-2012 Macbook Air. It has never faltered. I see the bad reviews, and if I had read them before purchasing this item, I may have bought a LiteOn. I have not burned or read a dual-layer disk, but this drive apparently will do that. It does not do LightScribe, which I kind of miss, but my printer will do printable disks, which is even better. So, for me, this drive has worked perfectly well.

    Reads and writes CD and DVD

    I used the USB Superdrive on my MacBook Pro 2014 and on my MacBook Pro 2016 using a USB C to A converter. It works fine. If you want to read CD's or DVD that were written to by other computers or you want to burn either CD or DVD's, this device will do it. You have to be patient because it doesn't read or write quickly. On the other hand, it is very reliable and hardy. I had another one that I used for many years but misplaced it and therefore had to buy this one to replace it. You can play commercial CD's and DVD's but be careful because some CD or DVD from a different regions of the world will not play on your computer and, although you can shift regions, you can only do it a few times. I have used it to read my music CD's into iTunes and played movies from DVD.
