    welcome to the board mate....

    it is already discussed...., u should have searched.
    ok.
    if u want a cd writer then go for a cd writer and a dvd rom seperately.
    i believe samsung is the best available...

    lol...nice one Pradeep.... drgrudge, exceptions do not make reccomendations...Samsung optical drives suck big time...period...ask a millions people and 1% might be on ur side. Its a known fact that Samsung optical drives develop issues after 6 months. Nothing against you mate but gotta tell the guy the facts. I should cos I own a Samsung drive :-(

    Go for Liteon. No margin for complaints. Buy seperate drives for DVD & CD writing. Combos have a higher rate of failure. On second thoughts, why don't u buy the Liteon Dual layer DVD writer- RS-5750/- !!! Best deal buddy.

    ok guy i will spill my advice. DONT GO FOR COMBO DRIVE. Buy it separately because if the drive goes wrong you may be in a condition to give the drive for service. Suppose if u are going for a separate drives (CDRW & DVD). If one goes wrong u can have other. More over do not go for Samsung and LG. Go for Sony or LITEON. I think so liton will be best. Further you can wait for some day (maybe months) wherein u can get a DVRW (Single layer) at affordable price( in 4 thousands now current rate is 6 thousands)

    Buying any optical drive from samsung is a sin....Take it from me, I've owned 4 drives....none were as bad as samsung.
    Right now...LiteON, LG and Sony..in order.
    And dr.grudge, don't repeat ur opinion again. I've already read it thrice :D

    use Search feature of the forums, you'll find a lot of info on dvd rom drives, especially in the Hardware Discussion section of the forums.
