i never install a dvd drive in my pc...it just waste of space, i have a external dvd-rom usb
plugged, so instead i can hook up another fan in the front ,so airflow will be better,i suggest u do the same,u will like it more, its neater and more efficient .Everything else can be downloaded form net u dont need a dvd rom. http://www.amazon.com/Reader-External-Optical-Drive-SDR...
Ive use Liteon, LG, Samsung,.... all the crappy ones have pretty much weeded themselves out (on newegg at least) Pick one you like.
The one I like the best is my liteon that supports dvd-ram. Sweet media idea, too bad disks are so expensive.
