Just to paint you a picture.
I’m building a 2nd backup PC in a cupboard (yes there is going to be loads of cooling!)
And the monitor/keyboard/speakers/USB Hub etc will all be in the room next door.
Due to this, I’d like a DVDRW drive that can plug into my USB2 hub (which has a lead back to the PC)
So, I guess I have some questions:
Will there be a problem (speed wise) connecting a DVD Burner to a USB Hub connected to the PC.
If there is a speed issue (perhaps data getting through) then I assume the DVD Burner would work fine if perhaps I just burned at a slower speed (I normally only burn at 8x anyway despite having internal 20x drives on my current PC)
This is only a 2nd PC, so I’m just looking for a basic burner, reliable, good burn quality and good read quality.
Does not have to the the fastest on the planet.
Black and Silver would be me colour choice if possible
I’ve found this (here in the UK)
Freecom 29510 20X External USB DVD?RW/DL/RAM Silver - Retail
LiteOn DX-20A3P-03C 20X USB DVD?RW/RAM External - Retail
Wondered if you had any views on these two drives, or to what I propose doing in general?
