            I use it sparingly but what is most important is that it worked in my iMAC straight out of the box - even though it came with an installation CD ONLY for Microsoft.

            It does what a CD/DVD driver is supposed to do at a very low price.

            For best price go to B&H, and their service is incredible.

                Locked up after playing only 7 DVDs. May be the iMac that locked up, but there was no way of getting the DVD out manually. I smacked the back edge of the player really hard on the edge of my desk and it started working again. Not sure how many times I can do that in the future.

                          Needed an optical drive for my late 2013 IMAC. This unit fits my requirement for a drive to use on an infrequent basis. Low cost, small, and so far dependable. Works well with my existing 3rd party software. Exactly what I was looking for.

                                If you're looking for a fast burner, this isn't it. However, if you're looking for an accurate burn, this is for you.

                                I bought this to use with a tablet/laptop hybrid without a DVD/CD burner. Setup was a snap! 8X is the max burning speed, but I get high accuracy on the burn. My desktop has a faster burner, but I was getting many write errors at faster speeds. I burned over 40 DVDs in the first week and did not have a single write error with this product.

                                On the downside, the bundled software is not good... horrible would be a better description. I suggest finding a different program for burning. I use one program to author my DVD, save it as an ISO image file, then use a separate program to burn the image to the disc.

                                If you can deal with the slower burn speed, buy this product. If you need something faster, be prepared to pay a whole lot more.
