Alright for the price

Plug and play, does the job. A little bit noisy when spinning up. However if you need an optical drive for older software installs or burning DVD's/CD's then it's ideal.

Small But Perfectly Formed

This is really slimline and small, I was surprised. However it seems well built and it works well, just plug it in and away you go, very handy to have nowadays as nothing comes with a DVD player and they are still useful to have. I am running mine on both a Mac and a Windows machine.

An excellent product for the price!

I bought this for my daughter for her Birthday, as she has no disc drive on her laptop. She can now watch DVDs and save her files with ease. She loves it!

Worked straight out of the box

I was expecting to have to at least let it install drivers on my computer or have to go and find them online but no, plugged straight in and played cds and dvds alike. Haven't tried writing discs yet as I have no reason to. Arrived promptly and has been a good experience. The only thing is that it's a bit louder than the fans in my pc but I don't mind at all as its a familiar background noise that I haven't heard in a while.

HP External DVD Writer

This product very competitively priced and is easy to use. It plugs into a USB port which also supplies the power. So far it has worked first time every time both for watching DVDs and for converting DVDs to mp4.

Very pleased

Small, light, portable. I have used it for 3 weeks now and am very pleased with the results. Very good value for money. Only criticism is that I would have preferred a longer connection cord.

Nice reliable product at good price.

Very good item - does exactly what it claims to - no hassles

This external DVD writer does everything it "says on the tin." Used for a few weeks now.
It works seamlessly with Windows 10 and 11 with no need for drivers and supports Autorun.
It may be a little slow but it's a forgivable "fault" overall.
Very happy with this nice piece of kit.

USB CD/DVD writer and player.

Works well. More than makes up for the lack of a dvd-writer on most modern computers.
