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!

Please see the pics I posted for this item.

This item works for an optical drive (mid 2012 15 inch MBP's DL DVD-RW). I used the drive in a Macbook duo core, Dell XPS notebook, and of course the MBP the drive came in. CD's and DVD videos played without any problem. The case feels solid (does not creak or feel flimsy), and overall very satisfied. I'd give it an extra star IF it came with a cheap padded pouch...

Details:
There are some comments on this item from other verified purchasers. I am thinking they received a bad product or maybe a different variation of what I had received. Just in case if you do are not sure of what this item is for, I will mention some of the details.

I cannot speak to any other optical drives, but this case was almost too easy to install the optical drive that came out of a MBP 15 (mid 2012). I'm pretty sure Apple did not change the optical drive for a while - after all, they still do not support Blue-rays... So, the drive that is in the latest MBP is still the DL DVD RW/CD RW/DVD-rom.

As others also stated, this item does NOT come with any directions. However, this is a tool-free case :).

The first time I closed the "clamshell," I noticed one side was thicker than the other. I carefully disassembled the case and saw there were two protruding pieces of plastic. One looked to be a screw hole for another type of drive. Anyway, a small plier was used to remove these two protruding things and the case closed tightly around the optical drive. Please see the pics posted.

I plugged the drive into an open USB port and tried a music CD. The CD didn't seem to want to go in, so I pulled it out and the stick-on dust cover (slot-loaded case) was stuck to the CD.

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.

works 100% with no problems. People who are saying they are having problems with it fitting properly, not ejecting correctly etc.. Before you insert the optical drive there are 2 tabs in the cover that need to be removed. They have a pair of scissors pointing to them. Break those tabs off FIRST. Then install your optical drive and close it up. It will snap completely closed and everything works with no issues! I would of gave it 5 stars but the instructions DID NOT mention anything about those tabs. I had to do some reading from other posters about that.

Also I wanted to note that it works with no drivers needed to be installed on your end. Windows 7 already has the drivers and of course it just plugs into your macbook laptop with no problems and works. Only thing that sucks is the eject button no longer functions but I've read you can fix that some how. I personally don't care since this thing is used maybe once in a blue moon.
