    Are these decent specs for a DVD-RW drive, if not I'm taking any suggestions I can get I can spend about 150-200 USD.

    *moved from DVD-ROM* ... close :)

    The specs are fine, but I for that price I would look into a Plextor, Pioneer or a Sony.

    BTW, NEC's are good drives also. You can get a dual layer NEC 3500 for around $65 from Newegg.com

    ok thanks I know it's pricey, but I want a usb one and it has to be black because my case is black and I'm not good with wires so me trying to install it would probably equal my computer blowing up
