Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprised I originally bought this item as a DVD player to use with my MacBook Pro as my model does not have one installed I am pleasantly surprised to discover that it can also write to blank CD/DVDs, which makes it doubly useful as I can make gifts of pictures etc to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Drive So simple to use literally PLUG and PLAY and very neat on my desk and so quiet too.Worth every penny. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So compact Well packed very reasonable price with the john Lewis grantee. It was so easy to set up just plug in and away you go and it's a nice small item and fits on top of the mini mac 02 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential product This is a great and a must product for playback & backup and it matches the MacBook Pro, MacMini and iMac. 29 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential addition for an iMac Without a CD/DVD drive in my new iMac, this small compact beautifully neat unit is absolutely great, does it's job as you would expect, and fits exactly on the the stand appearing to be an integral part of the set-up. 29 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and top quality Bought this CD drive after discussion with John Lewis partner. Plug and play as advertised, could not be easier to use with my iMac. Not the cheapest CD drive, but a stylish, quality product. 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely useful As the MacBook Air does not have a Cd slot you will need to purchase the USB SuperDrive which allows you to import CD and DVDs into your laptop. I find it very useful and easy to use. It is extremely simple which makes it quick to change, import and export the Cd. The only problem I find is that the cable is quite short so you have to have it close to the computer making it hard to move around whilst CDs or DVD are in for example if you were watching a film. Other than that I am extremely happy with the product and would definitely recommend it if you are buying a MacBook Air (Maybe the mac book should have a cd drive its self but I suppose it can't due to it being super thin) 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin! Simple, finctional, good design, everything you want for a disk drive to go with your Mac. 08 May 2015
