There seems to be very few choices in this category.
I’ve found a few and I’ve looked pretty hard. I came up witht the following, but I’m sure this is not all and please mention something different.
Didn’t include the Panasonics just because of all the bad things that I have already read???
Also, wasn’t sure if the SONY-NEC drives made for Apple are SATA and able to add Dell’s DVD shroud (if thats the right word)
By the way, my laptop is a Dell M4400
Thanks for any and all feed back and I know everyone has there own opinions. I have an Dell Inspiron 1525 with a TSST RW - DL burner (drive model I’m not sure of), but it is the second one and it is a piece of crap. I have NEC in my old D600 that I use and it has spoiled me I geuss. It is much quiter and have burn very, very few coasters on it. The TSST in the Inspiron is about 1 out of 5 and I use various media types, but never RW or DL’s. The TSST sound like they are going to fly apart!!
