Six of one, half-a-dozen of the other. See which comes with the best software.


I don't believe that a DVD drive can provide more information than either SATA or IDE can manage. SATA gives better performance and has a cable that is less restrictive to air flow and easier to "tidy up".

Go for a Lightscribe drive.

I've used DVD drives from LG, Samsung, BenQ, and Sony. None have given me any grief. As UncleDave suggests, the thinner SATA cable will have less effect on airflow and wiring clutter. Buy a Retail rather than OEM version, in order to get the software, including a decoder which you'll need to watch movies.
