    Default Best/Fast DVDRW

    Decided to get a new DVDRW as my current one is playing up... but i can't decide which DVDRW i should get.

    As the topic says best and fast, i'm indeed looking for a fast drive... not just at reading but also at writing of course. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Bezel colour doesn't matter as i'm moving into a more convenient case soon (secret project eta March time ) and so the bay covers will be stealthed.


    Lastly does SATA drives make bugger all difference as opposed to normal IDE drives? I suspect is more down to the actual drives capabilities rather than the sort of connection it uses.

    Budgets between cheapo £20-50. Thats enough for a good optical... even the cheapo ones look interesting... but i don't know

    edit: It also has to be a Dual Layer DVDRW too

    i'd go for the samsung sata drive, can't stand pata leads. i think all drives have similar peformance thesedays, gone are the days when owning a plextor actually meant something performance wise.

    Still doesn’t stop people specking up Plextor's on expensive machines.


    Carbine, I personally would go for Samsung SATA just as Jameson recommended, there cheap and cheerful and cut internal clutter. I'm putting one in my new computer (only one though).
