As the time slowly approaches for me to build my HTPC, I have a question in regards to DVD drives.. My question is what drives out there is everyone using internal/external drives? Are the Slot/Tray loaders? Has anyone seen sound differences from either type?
I'll throw in another vote for the Pioneer. I have that unit in my HTPC. I have a Liteon in my regular PC which is fine also and complement the two with a Sony DRX-500ULX external for burning capabilities.
I'm in the same situation in deciding which type to go with. The issue with slot loading drive is... dust, isn't it? This would not be a problem if you have a case with a door for the external bays. But then, you now have to deal with the door.
