After ordering my dvd multiwriter for my first build, I didn't notice it, but it was a IDE drive, and I had thought originally that it was SATA. I had major issues with it to work from the start, its a horrible drive. I had some issues with newegg, but ended up getting my way, ask me how to make them pay for shipping, and give you a full refund. Neat little tricks.
Is running a DVD writer on SATA a ton better then having it connected via IDE?
The two sata drives that I am looking at to replace my current HP are here:
Newegg.com - LG Black 22X R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVDR DVD Burner with LightScribe - CD / DVD Burners
Both which fit my price which is 27.99 + Free Shipping (exact), and are NewEggs top selling and rated drives.
Which should I get, and if you can find a better MULTIWRITER with SATA, Free Shipping, and 27.99 or under, please link me.
The major things I want, are:
- NO HP!!!
- Any drive that does multiple forms of discs
- Any drive that is under or 27.99
