So I assume that most folks here use an internal optical drive. I know I do. I have always figured that a true external drive is just a no-no. Sure you can take an internal drive and make it external but that seems fraught with possible issues as well. But every PC build I do (which happens every 2-4 years) I notice fewer and fewer decent cases with an optical drive slot. In fact now there seems to be only a handful of what I would call a good case available with a drive slot. I was just curious what other people might thing of this dilemma and if you face it as well. Or am I wrong and everyone is using external optical drives?
