Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned item. Spent 45 mins on the phone with Apple support team before we decided the product was faulty. No problem with returning the item for a refund. Still deciding whether to try again with this model or try another brand. 11 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Essential addition to latest MacBook Pro! You will need to purchase this USB Superdrive if you aim to run CDs and DVDs on a latest MacBook Pro (no internal driver/writer). It operates with just a single USB connection and does this without the need for a separate power lead which means it is compact to transport. Operates effectively, although be very wary of touching it whilst it is running. I touched mine, albeit very lightly, during a recent presentation and it suddenly stopped working, losing sound and vision in mid flow - faulty electric wiring? 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple and looks good Does what it says on the tin, good quality and nicely designed but a touch pricey hence 4 stars. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised Worked straight out of the box, and with my iMac the short lead is ideal. Reads a variety of discs, all produced on my PC. Would thoroughly recommend this product. 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good drive Very simple to connect and use, but not compatible with blu-ray. Good for iMacs which don't have a disc drive so can play cd's & dvd's and load program discs. 03 November 2015
