Summary: I bought this as my built in drive had packed up on my iMac. This only works with iMacs which do not have a built in drive. Hopefully this will be made clearer on the Amazon site as it is very frustrating. Amazon refunded without any problem but it is in their interest and customers to spell this anomaly out clearly.
Summary: It was necessary to have this as the new Macbook 13" comes without a reader and one still needs to reinstall some older apps. It is small and unobtrusive, looks gorgeous in brushed aluminium or st steel?It does not work well from the keyboard usb, needs more power. Absolutely no instructions other than how to exit.
Summary: I love it, it sits under my new iMac and works perfectly without any fuss. The style is clean and minimum. I did read that one buyer had problems removing his/her cd.. this is perfectly simple. If you have an iMac you just touch the appropriate key and if not, use the software on your machine. Great, I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: The Apple USB Superdrive packaging was second to none. It was packed in an enclosing foam case. As always Mac delivers the best. Their SuperDrive is sleek, sits on the desk with elegance and I love the fact that one is not trying to find difficult on/off switches, as one uses the Mac keyboard to release any disks. It is a superb piece of Mac kit and from Amazon the price as compared to the Apple Mac Store was very favourably reduced.
