Easy to use
I was using some cheap black plastic external drives, which, honestly, weren't bad. I had this problem where after enough time, my Mac (24" iMac, and later a 2014 Mac Mini) wouldn't recognize it unless I restarted. That was the only problem. So, after a lot of years of these two cheap drives working well (I would use one for a while and for some reason or another switch to the other, but they both had the same performance) and ripping literally thousands of CD's into my iTunes library, I decided to get this Genuine Apple USB drive, thinking that the problem of lost recognition would disappear. But that problem is still a problem, unfortunately. If it happens with a genuine Apple product, then there is no solution for this. However, there are still some upsides to this. The Genuine Apple USB SuperDrive only requires one USB port, whereas my two previous cheap drives required two. They also had tray loading, and this Apple drive does not, which turns out to be easier and requires less room, or at least seems to take less room. It also feels and looks solid, no hint of cheapness like my previous drives, and it matches my aluminum Mac Mini and my two 30" aluminum Cinema Displays. On the first day I plugged it in, and it just worked. So, although it didn't solve my issue, it still brought a number of improvements to tasks that I work on continually, which is ripping CD's to my iTunes. For the consistent look to my computing setup alone, it is worth the money in that while there's really nothing wrong with black plastic, plastic looks cheap compared to aluminum. And both of my previous drives were from different companies, so one has rounded edges and a non-flat top while the other is more boxy... now I have a clean, consistent look. The lack of a tray has turned out to be a great thing and I now have an additional USB port. I picked this up for a third of the original cost of a new drive, and now I have two reliable backups although if something happens to this Apple drive, I'm definitely going to be purchasing a new one just like it.

Well made external DVD Writer
After going the “cheap” route with other brands, including LG and Panasonic, this Apple version has proven to be more durable, more stable, and more dependable. And that’s from a refurbished unit! With the discounted pricing on eBay, this DVD device is worth every penny.

Another Great Apple Product
Love Apple products (I am a Mac-head).... this dvd/cd burner works flawlessly, was easy to hook up, and does what it is supposed to do. I do a lot of music transfers from CD to my iPod, so this item was a must for me. It arrived quickly and was very reasonably priced.

Great quality and value
While I was frustrated I had to buy one of these in the first place (I personally miss the CD drive on my Macbook Pro!), this was a great find: high quality, like new, still in the original packaging, and it cost me >$30 less than if I had gone and purchased it new at an Apple store.

Great easy to work burner/player for Apple.
Fantastic DVD/CD burner, player. Simple to work. Just plug & play. The Mac recognizes it, & gives you all the commands you need. Just insert a disk, & when you're done it will eject automatically or you can go on screen, click the app & select eject. Simple as can be. One note place the device with the logo/black side down.
