One of the last components I need for my build is a DVD player. Never had one or used one before. I just want something that will get the job done, including preferably writing both DVDs and CDs. Everyone seems to think this can be achieved for the price of dirt these days, but I must admit I'm finding the search a little confusing, like apparently there is a difference between DVD + RW and DVD +/- RW, but I don't know what it is. Oh, and I don't know what DVD RAM is either. If not writing CDs makes things easier, that's fine. If writing DVDs is actually significantly more expensive then I can do without that too, I just heard it was cheap now. Obviously a decent read speed would be nice, but that doesn't generally come into play very often does it? And a slow writing speed is fine as I won't be doing that very often at all.
So please recommend a few cheap ones that will work.
Here's a quick sample of what is available to me. If you can find something on this list that is fine, that would be preferable.http://www.edbpriser...s.asp?ID=245675
NEC AD 5170Ahttp://www.edbpriser...s.asp?ID=195535
Pioneer DVR 111Dhttp://www.edbpriser...s.asp?ID=382253
I don't even really know the difference between them
And to be honest I'm kinda burned out from all my other research into my build plus the night shifts I've been working, so if this is one area where I could avoid more learning and just trust someone's recommendation that would be cool.
