    Exactly what I expected to get for $20. Had to break off some plastic tabs to get the thing to close right. Also had to bend some of the metal into tolerance.

    All of this is to be expected. At a glance it looks almost exactly like the slim external drive Apple sells for the MacBook air, but this is made of gray plastic, not aluminium.

    Now I have a working external USB DVD-RW for my 17-inch Macbook Pro. I needed the external enclosure because I replaced the internal carrier with a second hard drive.

    I fully recommend you buy this enclosure. There seems to be nothing else like it, and if there was, it would probably by $100 and not worth it. Just don’t complain when you open up the plastic bag this thing comes in and realize just how well manufactured REAL Apple products are.

    UPDATE: After six months, I can still recommend this product…for what it is!

    Cheap, but works! Eject tutorial!, March 9, 2012

    Initially, I was going to give this product a four star rating, however after looking through a ton of reviewers being pleased with their purchase but rating it at 3-stars, I decided it could use the bump (to each their own, as they say).

    QUALITY/MATERIALS
    The bottom part of the enclosure is metal, the top is plastic with a reasonably near match to Apple’s finish for their products (it’s a little darker). I don’t understand why they didn’t reverse the materials for this thing. You have to break off a couple of tabs to fit in your superdrive, but once that is done you snap on the top and you are good to go! It is not even NEAR as well made as an Apple product (or even a Dell product for that matter), but seeing as I got this from an online auction website for about the price of a venti latte, I am definitely not complaining!

    FUNCTIONALITY
    My superdrive was automatically recognized and installed in both OSX and Windows 7, and I have yet to find a program/function that doesn’t work as well as an internal drive! For a tutorial on how to eject a DVD with your mac’s eject button, read on!

    WHY 5 STARS?
    – CHEAP.
    – Matches my Macbook perfectly
    – Works as advertised.

    OVERALL
    Seeing as the Macbook Air external Superdrive has problems with playing on a macbook or other Mac product, I was pleasantly surprised at this cheap enclosure that worked like a charm! Give it a try – if everything you own doesn’t have to be milled out of a solid chunk of aluminum you might just like it!

    EJECT TUTORIAL
    Ok, so the one frustration with ANY external DVD drive on a Mac is the inability to eject using your keyboard. Follow these steps to rectify that:

    Step 1: Open Automator. When asked what kind of workflow, select “Service”.
    Step 2: At the top, set the “Service Receives” tab to “No Input” in “Any Application”.
    Step 3: From the left toolbar, add a “Run Shell Script” by dragging it over to the right.
    Step 4: Replace the “cat” text with “drutil eject -drive external” (no quotes)
    Step 5: Hit Apple+S and name the service something memorable
    Step 6: Go to System Preferences – Keyboard – Keyboard Shortcuts
    Step 7: Select “Services” from the left side, and scroll down to your named service.
    Step 8: Set a shortcut for your eject command – I’ve been using [Command+Shift+Minus]

    *If anyone knows how to set the eject button in Keyboard Shortcuts, I would be SUPER happy to know about it!

    I am very happy with this purchase as it does exactly what I need it to. Thanks to other reviews I anticipated the common issues and took action accordingly.

    The product looks beautiful on the outside and looks very similar to the finish of my MacBook Pro.

    The short cable is annoying but can easily be solved with a USB extension cable.

    The disc jamming in the drive was easily solved by folding up a single Post-It note about 4 times and taping to the bottom tray to force the drive to fit more snugly on the top as is intended.
