CD, DVD and Blu-Ray - what ever you are after we have something to suit you. Due to the rise of USB media and availability of data online optical media is a dying tech. As default all of our PCs no longer come with a CD/DVD Re-Writer as standard due to nearly everything being online or being able to transfer data via a USB drive.
All optical drives we now sell are external USB versions however if you really want an internal optical drive, it is still possible with a case that has a front 5.25" bay. Simply contact us first and we can advise on the options to choose or if you are confident in choosing a case with a 5.25" bay, go ahead and order with an external optical drive and pop a note in the order comments box about wanting an internal drive - We will then supply the system with an Internal equivilent optical drive.
