    What's Up?

    I've had this SuperDrive and have been using it heavily for a long time. It has never missed a lick. It is great. I couldn't be happier with it. It's a workhorse and totally dependable. I'm not sure how to account for all the bad experiences that others have had with this model of drive, but I have had a purely positive experience using it. I can only relate my own experience, which has been purely positive.

    Excellent.

    I've had this since 2011 and it hasn't missed a beat. Still works with my brand new MacBook Pro.

    It's awesome

    I use this with my Windows computer, and it works great! I just installed the bootcamp ODD driver from Apple, and I can read and write onto discs. Would highly recommend

    5 stars for the price, convenience and functionality

    I was using a higher end brand play and rip CDs to my external, after my high-end CD player that I used the same way I decided to not dish out 4 figures and pick up this external Apple USB SuperDrive. It just works, plug and play and allows me to still use the software for keeping the same Redbook CD quality. I've used it on my desktop and has traveled in my backpack and no mechanical issues with all the traveling. I do miss some of the features of the $1000 plug unit I had but after using the SuperDrive it just works for my needs.

    (Might not suit your needs but I've found it to suit mine without remotely breaking the bank, YMMV).

    Happy with the Superdrive.

    First off I wasn't happy that the new iMac didn't come with a built in CD/DVD player. Secondly, after reading the reviews I was frankly stunned that they were so negative. I called my go to guy at the Apple Store and asked his opinion about the Superdrive. He said that he'd never had any problems and was surprised that the reviews were negative. So, I ordered one. Out of the box it has functioned as it should. I've had no issues with speed, hanging up, ejecting the discs or copying files. Still not happy about having to tie up a USB port, but it works smoothly and recommend it. I wonder how many people who wrote the negative reviews bought their versions somewhere other than an Apple Store.

    Works great!

    I recently replaced my 2010 MacBook Pro with a 2018 MacBook Air. I've used my Apple USB SuperDrive to burn CDs and to import CDs into iTunes & it's been working great, at least as well as the built in CD drive in the Pro. I don't understand all the bad reviews; it works great for me.

    Great product

    I bought this in 2013 and have used it continuously ever since. Never had the slightest problem with it, so I don't understand the negative reviews here. I haven't been gentle with it either. It gets bounced around in suitcases and briefcases all the time.

    Thankful

    I am cannot figure out the bad reviews either! It saved my life...I am a paralegal stuck in a windows world. And thankfully found this little piece of heaven and now do need to convert from my macbook pro to a windows laptop. Which for a total mac person would have been rough.

    I have had no problems burning pdfs etc.

    Even bought a magic mouse to go along.

    About to buy again for my daughter

    I came online today to buy this product a second time and was shocked by all the bad references it's been given. I bought my first one along with a new iMac going on 3 years ago and have never had an issue. It just works like you'd expect every time I need it. I'm buying the second one today with full confidence for my daughter's new iMac.

    Works As It Should

    I was reluctant to purchase this drive after all the bad reviews, however I'm happy to have ignored them. Had it for three months or so and it operates perfectly. I've burned both CDs and DVDs flawlessly..never a problem. I do admit to using name brand disks..never bothered with the discount stuff. Also never experienced an ejection problems as so many complained. I use the keyboard ejection key as well as 'command e'. Also I've dragged the desktop disk image to 'trash'. Neither method has ever failed..not once. No problems and if forced to have a USB drive sitting on my desk, I want it to at least match my equipment...this one looks great as do most Apple products. Oh yeah..playing prerecorded disk, movies,etc. is also perfect.

    It works

    I'm not sure why there's a lot of bad reviews on this product, but I've had mine for almost 4 years and it works like a dream. I haven't had any problems with this device and it's worth the money.

    Not sure why all the hate

    I've had the Superdrive for like 3 years. I've never had a problem with it. It works exactly as I hoped it would.

    It works for me!

    In spite of some of the bad reviews, I wanted to give the Super Drive a try. I received it on a Monday afternoon and by Thursday afternoon I had successfully ripped 201 CD's. The ONLY issue I had was that it balked at trying to eject a CD with a paper label on it. I was wary of ripping it in the first place, but it worked. I would not use labeled discs in it in the future. I am thrilled that I was able to rip my whole collection so quickly and easily. I have also been able to burn CD's with no problems. I hope it continues to work as well for me.

    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!
