I am waiting on a new Dell 530 Quadcore Q6600 with I think only SATA available on the MOBO (I think only SATA after spending a loooooong time with Dell tech help that couldn’t understand why I would need to know about such a thing on a machine just now being built, and why I would need an upgrade already to the DVD burner !!!)
My question is this, having had really good results with LiteOn for a long time (LH-20A1H-LLOC and a SOHD-169PS-FS09 as a reader) what should I be looking at now to equip the new desktop ? I have no problem leaving the LiteOn family but have always liked the abilty to upgrade firmware when an improvement is available. I also use only Verbatim 16X +R media and have not had a coaster in a couple of years.
Thanks for any opinions offered.
