    I need a USB CD/DVD drive, mostly for software loads, including boot. Some occasional writing. I do not care much about speed. I want reliability.

    I have been on the egg site, but it would be nice to have some feedback here.

    Their all about a dime a dozen at this point. A hypermature market, so shop on build quality and warranty. I've been very pleased with the Rosewill units, the ROD-EX003 and EX002

    Thank you. If you had to choose between the EX002 and EX003 which one would you get. I see the 2 is aluminum and the 3 plastic.

    Have you ever booted with them ?
