    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!

    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.

    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.
