Rating: 5/5 for external DVD June 13, 2016 I have purchased three of these enclosures while doing upgrades on my kids MBP's to include SSD's and moving the original HD to the drive bay. They work well to provide a DVD burner to a drive-less Mac. Another product from OWC that just works.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
