Combo Drive

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have absolutely no idea where to post this and this was the most logical location so if it needs to go somewhere else, please tell me.
I'm looking for a good, quick, and quiet SATA combo cd/dvd drive. I need some suggestions.

Well quietness is up to the beholder when it comes to burners, but I will say that my Asus drive is much quieter respective to others I've had.

Wait is he looking for combo drive or burner drive? They're two different things. Combo drive does not write, but can read. DVD burner can write and read.

But that drive above is one hella good drive.

I heard bad things about those drives with LightScribe. What's that stuff all about anyway.

I got this lite-on a few weeks ago. It's very fast and very quiet.

Burners are so cheap these days that there's no reason not to get one

Yah, just wanted to make sure what he wanted.

I would go for the Asus or Samsung. You can search it on newegg.com and they will be the first ones there. They have a few awards.
