In market for a reasonably well priced DVD drive

  1. I need to get myself a new optical drive and I'm at a loss as to what kind to get. I know that DVD would be the best, as I do allot of gaming and hate having to switch cds during an install. It would be great if the drive did not have a tray. Also, if someone could run through the specs one should look at when looking at DVD drives, that would be great!!

    thanks a bunch : )

    You want the drive to be able to support dual-layer and write both DVD-R and DVD+R. A DVD-ROM is a useless purchase in our time.
