Can someone recommend me an optical drive?

#1MCC1701Posted 7/5/2014 3:38:53 PM
So I am building my new computer right now, and while PCPartpicker.com didn't list any optical drives that were compatible with this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-case-isk600

It appears it is designed to support an optical drive, albeit a very thin one. I've only dealt with "fat" optical drives, but since my case supports it, I would like to have one on the rare occasion I need to use it. I'm not picky, so pretty much the cheapest optical drive that can read blu-rays, preferably also burn discs(being unable to burn blu-rays is fine), and fit in the case is what I need.

Thank you for your help.

This one would work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151271&cm_re=slim_dvd-_-27-151-271-_-Product

They are call slim, if you search for Slim dvd you'll find quite a bit of them.

Cool, so any slim optical drive will work? I'd get that one, but I'd like one that reads blu-rays as well.

Could not find any slim bluray drives. I guess your best option in that case would be to get an external bluray drive.

If that's the case I'll just get a reg slim dvd drive, and then the external bluray drive later if I need it. Thanks a bunch!
