it's just a usb dvd drive, not something you should try and fit inside a laptop as it won't be suitable for a huge amount of laptops.
dvd internal drives come in all sorts of sizes, screw holes in different places etc.. different size bezels and so on.
If you are using it as intended as a usb drive it should work on all modern laptops with a decent spec.

​sorry, Im a bit useless when it comes to technology, so as a 'usb' drive, is it feasible that this would also connect to a tablet via a mini hdmi to usb converter cable...say for the transfer of music to tablet from cd's?? or indeed, I bought my wife a hp 11.1" windows 10 notebook, with no internal dvd rw, but it does have usb port, would it work in this? sorry, like I say, I am useless with this stuff
Will certainly do for the laptop.

should be fine.some of the old netbooks had tiny storage in those cases i wouldn't bother. 4gb hard drives and the like.
Will work fine on any computer with USB port. Windows should automatically detect. Can sometimes be interesting if DVD writer already installed. Sometimes does not like 2 DVD drives, but why do this?

On EBAY USB 2.0 DVD/CD external drives for around £6. If coming from China can take up to three weeks or so. A USB 2.0 is perfectly good enough even for a USB 3.0 port (downwards compatible). Should come with cable. Quality will be fine. All built in China anyway.

​and regarding a usb adaptor so it can be connected to an android tablet for example, would this work or would it not even recognise an external dvd writer?
op, tesco Purley is my local tesco! how many were on shelf?
I've been thinking of getting one of these for backup purposes. and for £6 I'll happily bite. but I won't get home to Purley until about 7pm tonight. would be nice to know how many they had on shelf. thanks

there were 2 on the shelf and I got one. so only 1 left
noticed these in my local four of them all had obviously been opened and resealed so gave it a miss,good deal though if you can get one that has not been tampered with.
dam, got mine last week from Tesco for £15 and was a bargain
Got one of these the other day but I can't get my laptop to find it. Got a Zenbook so no probs with hardware

There is a trick.
Move mouse pointer towards the thumbnail and open image in new window
Go to the window and you will see **http://static.hotukdeals.com/images/threads/2473074_1.jpg**
Just before the numbers of the filename, type in high-res i.e
**http://static.hotukdeals.com/images/threads/high-res/2473074_1.jpg**

remove the **

and bingo. so the image becomes.

Picked up the last one in Romford (Gallows Corner), none in Roneo corner
SE208GB model, firmware MF00.
Single USB, rather short cable, connector is MINI-B, not the more common micro (phone cable) format.
24X CD (read, R, RW) CD-RW compatibility likely to be high speed / ultra speed - modern drives tend not to handle old spec CD-RW media of 2x and 1-4x.
8X on DVD +/-R, +RW
6X write / 8X read on DVD dual layer and DVD-RW
5X on DVD-RAM
Supports M-disc

Hmm, single plug USB2, have they really got this down to the 500mA capability, or are they pushing it?
None at arena Coventry tesco
was just going to order from amazon of course for >19, but would like to know if this product is any good?
