As little as I use my current optical drive, I debated whether to even add it. The fact is, sometimes I do need one, though rarely. I could have gone with an external drive, but those are annoying to keep track of. I opted for the Pioneer BDR-211UBK Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer with Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback.
Although it doesn’t support the older (S)VCD that I still have lying around somewhere, it does support quite a few formats.
It looks like one might expect from Pioneer - covered in logos.
For this drive, I did choose to go with the anti-vibration shock absorbers.
You can see it puts a small gap between the mounting bracket and the drive.
Connect a SATA3/6G cable to the motherboard.
and the other end to the drive.
and.. make sure to attach power from the power supply.
