Which DVD-ROM drive?

I'm looking at some DVD-ROM drives at <a href="http://www.dabs.com/products/prod-search.asp?action=search&tid=463&ob=price">http://www.dabs.com/products/prod-search.asp?action=search&tid=463&ob=price</a>, and wouldn't mind knowing which drive you people think is respectable alongside a respectable price at the same time.

I've heard praises about Lite-On CD-RW drives, but I've never really come across praise about DVD-ROM drives.

My budget is about £60 maximum, but ideally less than £40. I don't want something flash, just something reliable, sturdy and guaranteed to last a few years (unlike my Creative 48x CD-ROm drive...)!

Thanks a lot!

  1. Grab a pioneer, they are the best and I would think in your price range.

  2. I just bought two lite on's for 29.00 apiece. They are great, I have never had a problem.
  3. I have good experience with both Lite On and Pioneer DVD-ROM.
  4. I decided to order this <A HREF="http://www.dabs.com/products/prod-info3-info.asp?&m=y&quicklinx=X15">http://www.dabs.com/products/prod-info3-info.asp?&m=y&quicklinx=X15</A> today (Monday). Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow.

    BTW, how do you insert links in the posts? I can't seem to do it!

  5. That is a great drive.
  6. well it seems that people either like Pioneer or Liteon... take your pick.

    personally i love my pioneer trayless 106S. use it for everything.

  7. You can probably add Cendyne to that list of recommended drives. I'm not sure about their DVD drives, but their CD-RW drives are in fact Lite-On drives (which I believe are actually the same as the TDK VeloCD).
