Apple USB Superdrive, CD & DVD Reader/Writer 4.6 5 25 25
Worth the money Yes it's expensive compared to other similar products but it is really well built like all Apple products. Does the job really well. 27 January 2015

forget pc go mac brought to accompany new laptop what can i say its mac quality style and functional 12 November 2014
Simply the neatest Bit narked that apple no longer have built in CD/DVD drives but this is a thing of simple beauty. It's so thin you wouldn't think there was anything inside. Love it. 11 November 2014
Great disc drive Was debating whether to buy a cheaper product or go for the Apple product. Ordered online with pick up from store next day. No problems. Decided to bite the bullet and buy. In the event excellent decision. Took it out of the box, plugged it in and worked first time. No need to set anything up. Pure simplicity. As with all Apple products, excellent build quality. Very happy purchaser. 11 November 2014
Neat, Stylish and Sleek Apple USB Superdirive Very satisfied with this sleek Apple CD/DVD Reader/Writer and it matches up perfectly with the iMac. It is very easy to use - turning itself on automatically when either a CD or DVD is inserted. If you are looking to transfer CDs to iTunes, it quickly brings up the audio tracks and automatically displays the playlist order. A message asks if you wish to download the tracks. One 'tick' and 'click' selection begins the process, or you can select individual tracks if you don't want all the tracks on the album copied. It is of course also possible to insert a blank disk and record music to the disk via iTunes. I have yet to watch a DVD on the Superdrive but am sure it will be equally straight forward. 04 November 2014
Efficient As you would expect, it works really well right out of the box, and does everything you want it to. No setup required, just plug and play. Burning CD's to iTunes is surprisingly fast, and playing DVD's is as fast as you'd expect a built in drive to work. Unfortunately, Apple's prices for even basic equipment such as this are quite high. Though you do get what you pay for, and it seems like a solid bit of kit. 07 October 2014
Excellent product good value I purchase this from the Reading branch. I plugged it into the USB socket of my computer which is running Windows 8.1 64 bit which immediately recognised the drive and was ready for use within minutes. 16 September 2014
