This is my first post so Im not sure that this question has not been answered but I have recently been wanting to upgrade my optical drive and have been wondering if it would be better to just go with an external drive or would it be better for me to spend the extra money to get an internal drive installed? I heard from somewhere that external drives are slower because they take a lot of time to transfer through the USB or firewire cord but Im not sure how correct that statement is. I was wondering if anybody had suggestions?
QUOTE Thanks
