Default Dell's external CD/DVD-RW......... - 12-05-2008, 12:48 PM

How many of you actually ordered it with your purchase? I searched for a while to see if I could find another one cheaper, but came to the conclusion that I might as well order it. Couldn't find one that was cheap enough or had good reviews. If you have it, what's your experience with it?

Thanks for the information!

Ordered mine yesterday, should be here next week sometime. White/16GB/1GB/Webcam/Bluetooth/External CD/DVD-RW

When I ordered mine, the option to add that disappeared. Could be because I was using an employee discount program. In any event, I ordered an LG drive from Newegg and think it's better than the one Dell was offering.

I ordered one. I did the same as you, looked around for a bit and didn't see anything that was a whole lot cheaper than the dell offered one so I just bought it from dell.

it works fine for me. It runs off one USB port, no need to plug the y cable in and get extra power. I can't remember if I've tried burning a dvd with the single usb cable though.

it has worked good enough for me so far.
