Could you please recommend a fast, quiet, dependable CD-ROM drive?
I just built my dream system and have found that maybe I did a little too much dreaming. I am going to return my DVD drive in exchange for a regular CD-ROM. The money saved in this transaction will go toward a DVD player for my home entertainment system. (It's more pratical.) Anyway, I need to do this ASAP, like today, so I can still return the drive within the allowed period.
I am not too concerned with the cost of a regular CD-ROM. Compared to DVD drives they are all cheap. What I want is something that has very fast access speed and, more than anything, is dependable. Quiet would be nice too. Thank you all!
So, my thinking is that if I return the DVD and get a normal CD-ROM I'll save like $175 and if I return the Theater Speaker system and get the 4point system I'll save another $75 or so. That's $250 I could add with the $200 that I'm going to spend on a new CD player for my home stereo. And whoala ... a $450 Sony DVD for my home system for the same amount of money I already have invested.
