I went out looking to buy a combo drive,and the chap in our local pc shop advised against it,as the combo drives tend to be more unreliable than a dedicated cd-rw or dvd-rom.I eventually bought separate cd-rw and DVD-ROM for £64 the pair at a puter fair.(no doubt I could have got them cheaper online,but I have no "flexy friend")

I agree with Chegs ®

Although i have installed a few DVD / CDRW Combos under duress from clients..... I always buy LG...
