Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Not for me. I am not a technically trained person and I was unable to load, open, start any usable function of this device. All I wanted was a simple R/W player for data and audio. Not achievable for me with this unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Len M from Buffalo DVD Burner This DVD Burner is not too compatible with my HP Laptop that has Office 10 OS. I required me to update the Power Media Player so I returned the burner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disgruted from Poor customer service. Sent unopened product back for refund. Was charged $80 unnecessarily because product was not open. For this reason, I will not consider HP as a replacement for my existing HP desktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by samz from Nicee to have a Buffalo without the mess...... I really love my Buffalo Media Station. It allows my laptop without an optical device to play music and video DVDs and save my pictures on a DVD if I choose. I am hoping to someday have a herd of Bison - so this is a beginning. HA!

Rated 1 out of 5 by jm bk from Lousy device - does not even do simple things This device was a complete wasted of time. I purchased it to play DVDs on my new HP PC (most PCs no longer come with media players). I guess is this latest 'unbundling' aspect of companies that get to 'reduce the sticker price' of what you buy - but then you pay more later... Like having to pay for seat assignments or baggage on a plane. Anyway - this device does not even play movie DVDs. The software that runs the device (Cyberlink) makes you upgrade (!) to a more expensive version to do that. No thanks! What a waste of money...

Rated 5 out of 5 by John0674 from Excellent Accessory to Back-Up Documents and Media I currently own an HP laptop, an HP Envy All-in-One printer, and an HP external monitor. It's important for me have everything available, and that requires backing-up critical documents, as well as movies, television series, and music I've purchase. The DVD that installed the software was very helpful and simple to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pressed Rat from Inexpensive and powers with 1 usb port. I needed to add a writer for my computer. I wanted to make sure the one I purchased was compatable with my HP so I looked on the HP website and found this one. I was lucky in the fact that I only needed to use one usb port not two with some computers. So, I did not need to have a power outlet available. Great! It sits on top of my PC, out of the way until I need it. I am happy with this writer and have used it several times so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drk2318 from Portable DVD Writer Review I ordered the 8x Portable DVD Writer about a week ago from the HP Store. I received the product in three days. Today, I received my custom built HP 15" computer. I cannot wait to tryout both the computer and the DVD Writer at the same time tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rickydee from Works as well as a buolt in drive. This DVD writer works great so far as I have used it. Ihave not used it to write a DVD yet You can load the disk that comes with it or just start using ti to play CD's and movies without having to download any software for it. It is light weight and compact.

Rated 2 out of 5 by John1984A from It works...but... I bought this DVD player for my PC when HP didn't include one in my order for a PC. I had my PC built and at the time I had repeated twice to the rep that I DID indeed need a DVD player for this PC, not just for movies I own, but older games I still play as well. But, I did not get the DVD drive included. I was told that I could return the PC (which I'd already set up) and get one added for free, but wait weeks and weeks again and then spend another day setting it up, or I could get this DVD player for half the price. So I went with what I thought was the easier option. I regret this now. The player is nearly as noisy as a vacuum cleaner when running and it does not come with the ability to play movie DVD's. I would have to purchase the ability to play movies or get some free version where I'm bombarded with ads. I'm happy that it works and will play my PC games and allow me to do those things that require disks, but I am not happy with the level of noise or the fact that I can't watch movies on the thing. I don't recommend this player unless you're desperate. Had I paid full price I'd have definitely sent it back and gotten a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HavasuRed from Requires 2 usb slots I bought this for my new HP Spectre 360 and it requires 2 usb slots. My Spectre only has 1 usb slot. It has 2 usb-c slots so I had to buy 2 adaptors to plug the dvd into the usb-c slots. This dvd player was recommended for my computer when I bought my computer. Why would you recommend a dvd player that would not plug into my available usb slots? The description did not say it had 2 usb connectors. Very disappointed. I have not used it yet as I am waiting for the 2 usb.c adaptors.

Would this be something a writer would use to store their writting?

Asked by: Marlajo
Thank you for your question! This is an external DVD-writer. This can be used with blank discs to store writing yes. But you may want to look at USB memory drives or external hard drives as another option as well.
