    I have a new rMBP (2015) that I recently ordered, and would like an external DVD drive. Going through Amazon, however, it seems like most of the $10-$40 external DVD drives aren't that great, or wouldn't last that long.

    I have many DVDs – too many to rip – so would you have any recommendations for DVD drives under $40 that's reasonably good quality and would last me a long time?

    Thanks!

    What about the A1379? Is the reliability not particularly good?

    That's like twice his/her budget. And he/she wants to use it to rip DVDs. And he/she has a Retina MacBook Pro, which has several USB-A ports.:rolleyes: -1 for reading comprehension.

    EDIT - And that Pioneer has the USB-A connector that you decried.

    I read it as the new MBP 2016, since he said he just ordered it. Besides I was just saying what I was looking at. I'll admit to the -1 for the reading comprehension. Irish Death does have that power.

    and BTW, you replace the cable with this.

    Sorry for any confusion. I did mention it was the 2015 rMBP in my OP. Apple still sells it. BTW, mine was refurbished. So, I wouldn't need any dongles if the USB connector was USB-A.

    Too expensive. That's why I'd prefer $40 or under, but still having good quality and longevity.
