    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.

    Amazing Device

    This device is the best purchase I have ever made. It is compact and easy to transport. It allows me to watch DVD's when I am on the road and traveling from place to place. It works great and I am glad that I purchased it.

    BURNED OLD CD'S FLAWLESSLY

    I almost didn't buy this because of the negative reviews. I specifically wanted to use it to burn my old music cd's into my iTunes library. I have my old original Metallica, Motley Crue, Van Halen etc. cd's from my late 80's metal days and figured it might be problematic but everyone of them burned flawlessly! If that's along the lines of your intended use GO FOR IT! AWESOME DRIVE!

    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!
