    First, I had to remove the plastic tabs, to allow the SuperDrive to be installed (they are indicated with scissors). Then, the device was mounted seamlessly, and it works as usual as before removal from my 2012 MacBook Pro. No need to buy another expensive external drive! Works as expected.

    Impression:good purchase!;

    Electronics works without any problem, but when I wanted to EJECT dvd, it didn't came out. Because DVD drive fell down and ejected DVD pushed on enclosure. I had to adjust (with tape) bottom (metalic case) to raise up DVD drive, then everything worked perfectly.

    Impression:good, with DIY fix;

    Nice, slim dvd-enclosure for DVD-drive taken from my 2009 macbook pro 13". Fits perfectly, only had to remove 2 small plastic tabs, so the case fitted together as it should be! Really slim case and worked out of the box! None so far. And hope it stays that way. If you need it, buy this one,... Read more

    It is very good looking; looks almost like a factory external optical drive it's thin, well polished and it's closing very tight There are no instructions for assembly. You have to measure your optical drive; if its thicker than 9.5 mm just place it in and you're done. if it's 9.5 mm, just cut or... Read more

    Metal Base with rubberised feet, gives it weight so that the drive will be more stable when spinning. Fits snug and sleek. Fitted with disc drive taken from a macbookpro unibody 9.5mm Plastic top shell, would love for it to be machined aluminium but for this price who can complain. Furthermore, a... Read more

    It totally useful to set up an external optical drive using your recent removed Apple Optical Drive from your MacBook Pro. The optical drive fits perfectly in the case and interface with Mac or Windows machine works perfectly. Doesn't need any external power supply to work, so you can use only of... Read more

    Very good price. You won't find any other place at this price. No user manual. For slim drives, you need to cut off the two notches, otherwise you get stuck as I did, and you need to reopen the case, which is very difficult, as it has a very tight fit. USB plug has a small crack on it, but it and... Read more

    It comes 2 pieces. The silvery plastic is for the top case and the metal part is for the bottom. Nicely built after assembly. No manual for assembly instruction. The tolerance is tight, once it locks it is very difficult to re-open. I got mine scratches a bit at the back as I needed to re-open it... Read more
