    Works great 4 years later.

    • Written by Andrew A from HUBBARDSTON

    Got mine when I initially purchased my Mid-2015 MBP, and it still works great. Not sure what people are having trouble with, I have never had any issue. You burn stuff, then eject the disk, or go to disk utility and hit eject.

    Apple DVD Drive - GREAT PRODUCT

    • Written by Michael L from LA MESA

    I have read the reviews and decided to buy this unit anyway. I have used it for over two years and NEVER has it failed me. I love this drive. I play video disks and I read disks and I burn disks. - never a coster or an inability to use it successfully. GREAT PURCHASE!!!

    Works Great!

    • Written by Greg L from Littleton

    I almost didn’t buy because of all the bad reviews. But after chatting with an apple representative and learning this is the only external cd drive option,I decided to buy it despite all the terrible reviews. Glad I did- I’m not a tech guy, but this was as easy as could be to use. Just insert the cd, follow the prompts on the screen, then select the button on the screen to eject. No problems whatsoever, no idea what all the bad reviews are about, a bit expensive yes, but not out of line compared to any Apple products. Great buy!

    Apple USB SuperDrive

    • Written by Charles N from Salida

    Despite nearly being frightened away by the plethora of bad reviews, I bought the unit. Hey, it's an Apple. In 15 years all I've bought is Apple and I have yet to regret doing so. My instincts told me if it was a piece of ****, Apple would not have left it on the market. Long story short: I bought it, it got here when it was promised, I plugged it in and it works fine. Apple... your politics gag me, but your gear is top notch.

    Trash

    • Written by Mary-Patricia A from Bradenton

    I loved reading the review about those not being "tech savvy" having trouble with this drive. I'm tech savvy and this device was a waste of my hard earned cash. I used device 3 times; that's it before it stopped working.

    Limited at best

    • Written by Marlyn A from Newport News

    The device itself functions well, but how ridiculous it is that for my Macbook with USB-C interface I cannot charge the computer and watch a movie using the SuperDrive because it only works when connected with the Apple USB-C to UBS adapter. Too limited, is a joke! Does not seems to be worth the money.

    $80 down the drain

    • Written by Katherine R from Laurel

    Says it is compatible with new MacBook Pro models with adapter, but when I try to connect a brand new superdrive to a brand new MacBook Pro using a USB to USB-c adapter, I get a message to plug the drive directly into a USB port that does not exist on this machine. Thanks a lot, Apple. Looks like another $80 Apple tax from this perspective.

    SUPER bad

    • Written by Nikki N from Las Vegas

    So glad that I bought this wonderful cup holder...seriously...I bought something basically to watch movies, but careful, if you actually want to watch something from this century (like a Blu-Ray), sorry this won't work...so now I have an amazing computer, an amazing Disc collection and no way for them to come together with this, Apple's only drive...

    Worthless Junk

    • Written by Josh L from Vinita

    These things are complete junk. The most recent one lasted less than 1 day. This is the last time I purchase one of these from Apple. Time to look elsewhere for a DVD player. Thanks Apple.

    Do Not Recommend

    • Written by Connor L from Wolverhampton

    I have been through three USB superdrive units. When converting CDs to add them to my iTunes library, it would randomly spit out the CD and fail to read it (even discs with no marks or blemishes) then cause iTunes to crash. At first I thought it was my install of macOS and iTunes, so I did a full system reinstall, but the issue prevailed again after a few minutes of use. So it seems that not are there only software issues, it also damages discs by leaving a scratch near the centre hole, so be careful if you do buy this.

    I've now moved to an alternative brand external disc drive which is working perfectly and reading all discs.

    Unfortunately this product is very much 'form over function' - it looks great but it doesn't perform up to the users requirements.

    Final verdict: do not purchase

    Another one bites the dust.

    • Written by Michael M from SAN MARINO

    One Apple Hard Drive died.

    2 Time Capsules died.

    1 iMac 27" fusion drive died.

    None of them recoverable.

    The SuperDrive.

    Used a few times, always put it back in the box after use so that dust would not find its way in. And still, it died with absolute minimal use. Truly disgusted with the lack of quality from Tim Cook's version of Apple.

    Now I need to find another vendor that I can rely on with regards to a CD/ DVD drive, sorry, still have tons of storage on old discs, not like Tim Cook says begone SuperDrive and all my data is accessible elsewhere.

    Total waste of money

    • Written by carl H from Wrexham

    Just bought new MacBook Pro, got the SuperDrive, all it did was just ejecting discs, I tried copying cds to iTunes and the drive would stop before completing, happened every-time I tried, I expected more from Apple. Don’t buy this product, you are just paying for the name no value or reasonable functionality from this product, shameful that Apple haven’t addressed the issues raised.

    Works for me!

    • Written by Rebecca D from Liverpool

    I replaced my 2007 iMac with a 2017 - no built-in drive so I purchased the Superdrive. I plugged in the USB and inserted my music disc. It loaded up immediately and played beautifully. When I was finished, I clicked the eject icon on the screen in iTunes and it popped right out. Each time I've used it, this is exactly what happens. Perfect! I'm glad I didn't heed the bad reviews and gave it a shot.

    Fast and beautiful!

    • Written by Gregg A from Greenville

    I imported more 7,000 CDs into iTunes with my SuperDrive before it started having read errors. Over the years it was always fast and looked great next to my MacBook Pro!

    Not working

    • Written by Jose C from Zurich

    Just bought the superdrive, and simply does not work, it keeps doing noise, trying to read and does not do anything at all. very disappointing for an Apple product that should be compatible. Now what do I do with this junk?
