The Archgon Premium External DVD Super Multi Drive clads in beautiful aluminum casing to match the look of the Apple products. It is designed to work with Mac icludes the Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, Mini, and iMac. A high performance DVD drive is used as an alternative to Apple's own SuperDrive but at lesser price. It is very reliable and would reduce the occurrences of the unreadable disks, or stuck Disk that quite often plaque the original iMac slot drive. The DVD external drive could read and write both DVD and CD. The drive is compatible with PCs and ultrabooks, and is covered under a one year replacement warranty for manufacturing defect.

Great DVD Burner for the price, and easy to use too! :)
By Mike H
I have to say I was very impressed with this DVD Rom Drive; you just put a blank DVD in, Apple shows it as a blank disk, you put your files on it, then click burn.
No need for Toast or any external DVD software; I just had a great technical support call from the company (who I left a message for and within an hour got a call back!), and they walked me through the process. He even told me that IDVD would burn movies (haven't tried that yet, but my need was to burn Data discs, so I'll try that next I guess when I get a free minute). It's plug and play, but the only thing that got me was that I was used to a CD of drivers and software to install, but had I put in a blank DVD, I would have figured this all out and saved the Customer Service Rep a call, so that was my mistake really. Has nothing to do with the company or their product at all.
Needless to say they get my recommendation to buy their product; you won't be disappointed. The only thing I'd say is that it requires OSX 10.4 or better (I'm running Snow Leopard so it's fine) and my DVD is just burning away nicely while I'm typing this review. :)

Now it is Crucial with every Mac product!
I ordered this external DVD, because the superdrive that I had for my MacAir spits the CDs out without reading it. I had paid $79.99+tax to Apple when I purchased it 2 years ago, and i seldom used it. I was disappointed with the superdrive. Sometimes I need a DVD drive to read archive documents and write them on CDs again. I was looking for a used superdrive on amazon because I did not want to pay that much again. I saw this item, it said it had Panasonic drive in it, so I wanted to give a shot.
The product reminds me of the PC-laptop style DVD drives, the way you insert a CD etc, with a mac look as it has an aluminum outer shell. So far worked great and it was almost half the price. Now that all mac products are without a superdrive, this becomes inevitable for those of us who need a DVD drive occasionally. The drive works instantly as you plug it in, OS X mountain lion recognized it immediately, and I have used it to read and write CDs and DVDs.
I will keep posting if anything happens to my external drive.

It wasn't expensive, and that's the biggest selling point. It does match the Apple stuff well, and it works as advertised. Seems a tad flimsy, but hey, so was the price.
If your disk gets marooned in there for some reason, unplug for 10 seconds (USB Plug in back) and then plug back in. Press the eject button as soon as it starts blinking. It will eject the disk. This is if you have a problem (I had a bad disk get stuck in my computer). Ordinarily you eject from the desktop, the button on the front only works if there is no disk in (or before it registers the disk).
