    After reading a lot on this forum, I have come to conclusion that Lite-On Optical Drives are the best. Correct me, if I am wrong . . .

    I am planning to buy Lite-On SOHW-1633S DVD-Writer. Along with that should I go for Lite-On CD Writer LTR-52327S or Lite-on LTD165H DVD ROM?

    What would be a good option?

    Or should I go for a DVD Writer only because I have seen a lot of members advising to go for separate drives?

    Also, are the above mentioned drives good?

    Could somebody be having info on their warranty & prices in Mumbai region as that would be helpful in making a decision for me.

    Thanks,
    Shyam

    What they are talking about is a combo drive, a DVD drive + a CD-RW in one.

    A dvd writer is one, that can write dvds. If u can, then go in for the Liteon DVD writer.

    well since TECHNOLOGY STOPS FOR NONE
    go buy a DVD ROM
    dont buy a DVD WRITER unless its AN ABSOLUTE NECESSARY for you
    becasue DVD WRITERS are still quite costly wait for the pricces to go down
    as of now you can get a DVD Rom

    Junk the Liteon and get the Pioneer 108D or the Benq 16X dvd writer. Both should be arnd 5.4k. If u are not to bothered to copy dvd's and cd's on the fly dont go for a extra drive. When i doubt abt prices and warranty visit lamington road ;) !
