Long time reader, first time poster…
I need to purchase an external DVD drive for a laptop, but I’ve been out of the loop for a while and I don’t know which model is best suited to my needs, which are as follows:
- Must be able to be set as region-free or region toggle must be unlimited or resettable.
- Must be external. Full size 5.25" or slim model? Is it better to buy the drive and enclosure separately or should I get them as a kit? I suppose this has to do with whether I can find a kit that comes with a drive that’s allows makes region resets easy.
- Does not have to be a burner. It’s for watching movies, basically.
I’m not concerned with the host interface. Either USB 2.0 or FireWire are good by me, unless someone has some insight for me.
Thanks, folks, I’ll check back soon for your pearls of wisdom!
