Never bought one before, installed one, never used it.
My drive is |2374|273d, just plain icky, though it has many capibilities, it is slow, makes me think it is preloading... yes... like a web page... searchin...
Anyways, I am going to buy, and install one soon, I hope I have very detailed information of my computer in my bio or what not, because I am to lazy right now to type it out (hand cramps, sad eh?).

It doesnt matter what kind of computer you have for cdrom drives. I never had any problem installing any cdrom drive in any desktop puter.

I prefer the sony or lite-on drives. The lite-ons are good if you have limited space behind the drive. In computers where a regular cdrom drive hits on the edge of the motherboard so that the drive sticks out of its slot in the tower is where i will use the lite-ons.

I usually buy dvd-rom drives instead of cdrom drives now. They only cost $5 more than the $15 cdrom drives. A lot of the magazines give away dvd's with the magazine and its nice to be able to read them also. I get the sony or lite-on dvd drives also. Dvdrom drives also read cd's.
