What CD/DVD/BLU-RAY (Optical Drive) Should I Buy?

We  sell 2 types of optical drives and they are both offered in either an internal (5.25") type or external USB type.

  • DVD+/-RW (Reads + Writes CD & DVDs)
  • Blu-Ray Writer (Reads Reads + Writes Blu-Ray & CD & DVDs)

The optical drive you use in your system will determine what types of media your system can read and write to.  If you have an older CD or DVD drive with any type of SATA interface and you are happy with it, you can probably move it to a new system without much trouble if the case you select has an internal 5.25" drive bay. For cases with no Internal 5.25" bays we recommend an external USB drive.
