Hot - that's about £15 less than I paid for this exact model a few months back (from ebuyer)

No complaints though, nice and glossy, usb powered and hasn't needed drivers on any PC I've attached it to.

HOT
only for AMAZON...
Ebuyer would've taken a major freeze from me

Bought this exact model from amazon a month or so ago for £35 delivered... mainly got it to install win7 on my family's aspire revo 3610 HTPC. Can confirm that this worked with absoloutely no problems on windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04.

Nice one, just bought one at £17.50 and I don't even need one... might be useful at some point though and cant go wrong for that price

That deserves a post in its own right! Good find will order from BT - and don't forget the 15% Quidco!

Why? Do BT sell them too?

For those who are buying to install OS onto netbooks with no drive just use this (with USB drive):

Absolutely easy and works like a dream (and it is free).

Are you sure the o2 and the Amazon drives are the same. The pics look different.

I wondered that. The O2 one doesn't even list DVD-R as disc that it reads. Surely it must!?

I ordered the O2 one - fairly sure that it will support DVD-R as well, it support dual layer so I would expect so. I'll update when it arrives.

Says: DVD+RW DL... and looks like the SE-S084 model.

An Amazon seller has them for £39.95.

Hehe... BT used to own O2... hence the confusion!

Thanks for posting that. I thought £31 was good, but £17.50 is a total steal.

I haven't got a confirmation email from o2 yet, though. I'm starting to worry.

It's not showing up in my orders either, though. So I can't track it. Their website is a complete mess.

The o2 one is an incredible bargain, just ordered one and got confirmation. Get rid of this deal and replace it with the o2 one, free next day delivery too. Perfect timing as I need one for holiday, leave on Saturday!

Wait, so does the drive from the O2 website NOT support netbook booting? I thought as long as a computer supported USB booting, you could use any CD/DVD drive?

Agree, is it acceptable in this day and age?

Booting to a USB drive is a BIOS setting... all Netbooks should support this.

Yes they do. Mine came through but took about 15 minutes. I also got one for my O2 Joggler from them.. The order process also tells you you will get a confirmation mail.

Been wondering this myself, anyone got any info?

I'm giving this one heat anyway - it's still a very nice deal

Not official, but if you use custom firmware you should be able to. Will try once I get them.

nice one ordered from o2 with TCB

That is an absolutely sweet deal.

I looked thinking the 30 quid amazon one was good, but £17... insane.

Not even bought the netbook to go with it yet, but at that price...

H&R OP types!

Nice one thanks, ordered one from O2

Strange, I paid pretty much this exact price from amazon 3-4 months ago.

Why when the other one is nearly half the price?

Mine has arrived is indeed the SE-S084 model dvd+-rw, dual layer and dvd-ram

Excellent bargain
