Hi there, I've got everything together, 2 sata cables, and 2 ASUS Quiet Track SATA DVD Drives to order off Newegg
Before I make my purchase tonight or tomorrow, I would like if anyone could provide some links to
good high end fast, accurate, quiet, SATA DVD Drives, I've done some searching and haven't really
found any. If anyone could post some links of some drives they think are good, please post.
Here in Oz I find it difficult to find a DVD drive, they are all burners. For the price difference, you mighr as well get a burner.
I just had a LG SATA drive. It went back, it would not read the lead in/lead out areas. I changed it for a Pioneer, and have had no problems.
a DVD-ROM drive wont be any more noisy than a +-RW drive... and not much more expensive... and will probably get more firmware updates. And stay away from pioneer drives... theyve gone down in quality in the past few years.
As far as I'm concerned there is very little difference between most drives on the market. I would go for a retail Lightscribe unit. Retail since you normally get a DVD player and software. Nero "OEM" isn't bad.
