OWC low cost Superdrives

Other World Computing on Thursday unveiled low-cost Superdrives for almost any Mac released within the last decade, offering 48x CD burning and LightScribe labeling technology. OWC claims the drives are quiet, and do not require any extra software to be installed with the drive. Users can also write to dual-layer DVDs at up to 12x speeds, while single-layer discs can write at up to 20x. OWC is selling the Superdrives starting from $35.

The Superdrives are being offered for the Mac Pro, PowerBook G4 Titanium and Aluminum, iBook G4, PowerMac G3 through G5, iMac G4, and the eMac.

    Get Pioneer

    Do yourselves a favor and go with a Pioneer drive mechanism if you're getting one of these. They're by far the most reliable and best performing drives currently available. I've seen some bug reports of problems with some of the TEAC and LG drives sold in some of OWC's enclosures.

    1st gen MBP left out

    Wouldn't you know it? I have a 1st generation MacBook Pro, which only has a relatively slow, single layer DVD burner, and there's no upgrade option.
