If this is just an external cd/dvd writer made by apple I would put a very thick coat on in here.

Almost £60 for a external DVD drive? I'm glad I'm not a Apple user lol. Not voting

It's not white, it's silver (solid aluminium). I've owned one for years and it works perfectly. The fact it doesn't require an external power supply is a major plus point. Sometimes its worth paying a bit more for a high quality item that just works. As with all Apple products, will hold its value so you can expect to recoup 50% of the asking price if you decide to sell after 4 years (this point is often lost on people that complain about Apple products being 'expensive').

It's also 3-4x more expensive than other brands. It doesn't make sense from a financial point of view no matter how much Apple spin you put on it.

There's absolutely nothing "super" about this product except the way it may make you feel once you blindly drop £60 on it.

I think the term you are looking for is 'overpriced'.

I am an Apple user and even I cannot justify the rip off price of this. It is a poorly implemented external writer with a short fixed cable only really intended for the very first MacBook Air.

Lots of older MacBooks have trouble powering it up because their usb ports do not supply enough juice. If you are sold on the looks, there are plenty of well built clones selling for a fraction of the cost.

cold for being an absolute rip off. it may look nice, but x3 the price of a standard one, no thanks apple.

Saw an external dvd writer on amazon today for £12, a decent deal. Saw this and laughed thinking about the idiots who buy from Apple.

I can get a blu-ray drive for less than this oO

I think apple should drop the "IT JUST WORKS" mantra now as there stuff clearly doesn't. 19 dongles anyone

These are like the drives they used to put in MacBooks and iMacs. They will scratch and destroy your discs. Horrible slot loading mechanism. Don't do it.

Totally agree with you on this you pay for what you get

These are garbage, the worst thing that Apple have ever made. Out of the ten bought by our IT department, only four still work two years on. I opened one up and they have the old PATA connectors on the notoriously unreliable Matsushita drives- they must have found a warehouse full of unused ones that are around ten years old and found a way to market them to suckers by spraying them silver. These are old Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro drives with a USB 3.0 connector. Buy any old £20 PC one instead.
