    No you want a DVDr/w not a ROM

    There's not actually a great deal of difference between DVDr/w price and performance
    My personal preference is the LG or Samsung drives, they can be a bit slower for raw data transfer (ie it's not going to effect a movie playback but copying a big file too or from might take a little longer) however on the plus side they are much quieter than the sony or Pioneer
