My new iMac didn't come with a DVD player so I needed to buy and external one
On the recommendations from several people here I called OWC. The woman I spoke with was very helpful in advising me on a model that would work for me. It is a tray model with a manual eject slot in the event the tray doesn't open . All I would need to do is put a paper clip in the manual eject hole and the tray will open .
OWC's DVD price was very good and it arrived quickly. I will definitely do business with them again

Most of us share unpleasant experiences, but I also believe in sharing good experiences too :Cool:

Hi Barbara - as you likely know, Apple has not put an optical drive in their iMacs for 4-5 years - bought mine in 2013 along w/ Apple's external Superdrive (the slot loader). OWC is a great online Apple site and is often recommended here - I've ordered a half dozen products from them over the last 2 years and have never been disappointed - last night I purchased a 1 TB Thunderbolt external HD to do Time Machine backups on the iMac (had a USB Seagate that kept getting ejected!) - good luck w/ your optical drive - if you do have a problem, then you should be impressed w/ their service. Dave :)

Glad to see you got that resolved so easily Barbara. My first encounter with OWC was more years ago than I care to remember. I was doing a processor and ram upgrade on a Blue & White G3 tower. Wasn't sure I had the right parts so I called their support department. I think I was on the phone for about half an hour. It took a while for the parts to be delivered but everything worked exactly as expected. Been dealing with them off and on ever since.

I recently ordered a SSD from OWC and ended up with a double order (my fault) I was amazed when I accessed their site to find a phone number and better yet someone answered! My dilemma was solved in a few minutes, excellent CS I will be doing business with them again.

OWC is a great company to deal with. Tech support is stellar and the sales people are friendly and knowledgeable. I have purchased from the many times, and have no reservations about recommending them. Truly a rare company!

+1911 OWC. There have been times I haven't even bothered shopping around, because their service is excellent and their prices are usually great, or within an acceptable amount of whatever other store has the item.

No doubts what the reference is here! It's not the first running of the Indianapolis 500!;)
