Default Ebay Blu Ray Drive

Just wondering if this Blu Ray drive would be compatible with this laptop:

0ND5H Sony BC-5540H 6X Blu-Ray Combo BD-ROM DVD RW Burn | eBay

Sager NP5170 Custom Laptop (Built on the Clevo W170HN)

Also I'm really bad at understanding the info, so I just wanna make sure, this is a blu ray burner?

If anyone knows of a better price on a laptop blu ray burner lemme know.
And if anyone has posted a tutorial of how to replace a laptop optical drive, a link would be appreciated too.

My guess is that the drive won't work with that laptop. Laptops aren't like desktops where things are standardized, you need to find a drive that the laptop was designed for or vice versa. Your best bet would be to contact Sager to find out what drives are compatible.

That drive appears to be Blu ray READ ONLY but a DVD/CD burner. The tip off is where it states "BD-ROM". You want something that says "BD-R" or "BD-R DL".
