Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I am looking for a decent slot-loading SATA DVD-Read/Write drive. I have unintentionally destroyed far too many really nice tray-based drives, including an "golden-age" Plextor that would otherwise have still been with me today. This tendency and the door on my PC's case makes a slot-loader much more practical for me.
I searched the web for "optical drive review" and all this really revealed is that I'm so out of touch with hardware reviews that I have no idea whom to trust. Any suggestions on where to do my own research, or on drives themselves?
