  1. as ive just found out the DVD laser in my Aopen Chameleon 16x DVD-RW has given out on me, im looking for a new DVD-RW drive and a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combi.
    Does anyone have any good ideas for some decent drives?

    Things to take into account:

    1) im a student so they must be pretty cheap
    2) my entire PC is black so the drives must be black

    im currently looking at the Philips LightScribe 16x DVD-RW (anyone know how good it is?)

    Any ideas and views are welcome

    Many Thanks

    phillips chipsets are good. I would opt for a BenQ 1650 which uses the phillips chipset and can be had from places like Newegg for around 35.00 I have no use at all for "lightscribe" and if you are on a budget why would you want to have to spend more for lightscribe media?
