i would like to replace my acer cd burner with an external model, so that i can use if from my laptop with out the need to keep the old system.

what are good brands of externals ( or are they all the same these days?) also what is a the better connection for a laptop ( given that i am not worried about burning time) parallel or usb.

I personaly use an HP 8230e, It is a bit slow on the read ,only 6x but being usb it has the advantage of being able to be plugged in or unplugged without having to reboot the computer.
