I bought an Acer Aspire R3610, so i am looking for (as per title).
Any advice on what to buy & what not to buy?
Any links for discounts or deals would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

There are a few things to look for:

Power: Does it need to be plugged in, or is it powered by USB so you can use it on the move?
Write Speed: You should go for '8x'
Disc Compatibility: Does it write/read certain kinds of discs - this will be dependant on what you're planning to use it for!!
Looks: A good colour and styling are important!!
Price: You should look to pay no more than £40, and would recommend trying the usual Amazon and Play.com, and you could also check for any stores on eBay to compare prices if you want.

Just bumping this guys as i now have £35 of Amazon vouchers & wondered what would be the best choice. I'm not bothered about 'Lightscribe', just a good,reliable unit.
As i said, looking for one from Amazon.

Thanks for any help.

All sound advice except the bold, which is just stupid.
