I need a new DVD burner (internal) for my father-in-law's computer. He's apparently broken the current one - he forgot to push the tray back in after doing something and hit it with his chair.
Given this, I'd like to get him a slot-loading DVD burner, so as to avoid the problem entirely. I need an internal device, and I'll be mounting in a 5 1/4" bay. He doesn't need any super-spec device - as long as it can read/write all the standard formats, it's good.
I see a few options at newegg.com, but they all have mixed reviews. Are there any out there that are generally seen as reliable?
How does one go about mounting slimline devices in a standard 5 1/4" bay? Is there a standard faceplate kit for that?
