For having two consider.
Speed of transfer during copies.
Wear and tear on a single drive.
redundancy if a failure ocurrs.
Speeds offered for pure reads on one versus the other.
I'm buying my next desktop. Is there an advantage to having both a DVD +/-RW and a CD/RW? Or will I be happy with just one drive that does it all... My instinct is just to get only the DVD +/-RW, but I want to make sure I'm not missing something. Thanks.
