    I purchased this because my Imac didn't have a cd/dvd drive. My only complaint is that there's no eject button.

    Works great for putting music or pictures on the macs that do not have cd drives. Only problem is that it does not have a eject button and you have to click eject on the computer which may cause problems if it freezes up.

    Typical disc reader, but does not have any type of eject button. You have to eject via the computer.

    I bought the CD/DVD player with the purchase of the Apple computer as it is a mandatory device for my purposes. I just plugged into the computer and watched a video to check out the retina display. The only criticism I have is that there isn't an eject button on the player itself, it has to be ejected out from the computer.

    Only one issue with this drive and that is that is doesn't have an external eject button. We had an older CD get stuck and had to research and work at getting it out using commands. An external ejection button would make it much easier. Still a great product - just will be aware of putting in old CD/DVDs.

    I needed a cd writer for my MacBook and decided that this was the one I wanted. I trust Apple's quality (most of the time) and liked that it would match with my Mac's aluminum chassis. Upon purchasing it, I found a few flaws. The first was that the USB cable didn't disconnect from the back of the writer; it was built right in. While if you plan on leaving this connected to an iMac or desktop PC this shouldn't be a problem, for mobility I believe this will lead to ultimate failure. Chords break or loose connectivity and without the ability to replace a $1 chord, I believe I will be left with a pretty aluminum brick. I also didn't like that there was no eject button (but that was not a deal breaker). I ended up returning it and went with a different model. I later went to Apple's own website and people were far less kind than I when reviewing the writer. If mobility matters, keep looking.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
