About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

DVDs are optical disks that have many uses in computer systems. Whether you run an enterprise data center or you just have a personal computer, you will have to use a DVD at some point. Other optical drives exist but are not as popular as DVDs. CDs were the first optical disks but are currently being phased out because of their low data storage capacity and low X-factor. Blu-ray discs, on the other hand, are still very expensive, leaving DVDs as the best choice for businesses and organizations.

Types of DVD Drives

DVD drives are devices that can either read data from or write data to these optical disks. In this category, we have DVD ROM drives. These can only read data to the optical disk and cannot write to them. If you are looking for a DVD drive that has both capabilities, then it is better to try out devices designated with RW.

DVD-ROM Interfacing

Most of the DVD-ROM drives are SATA drives. That means they use the SATA protocol to transfer data from the optical disk to the target device. Earlier models of the drives might still be using parallel interfacing or any other protocol but are on their way out.

Which is the Right DVD ROM for your Application

There are as many DVD ROM brands as there are computer systems. When looking for a drive, you need to keep in mind that these devices are not universal. They might be using the same SATA protocol, but the form factor varies. The IBM DVD-ROM drive for ThinkPad is not the same as the HP's Slimline Drive for ProLiant servers.

Once you have known the brand which you want to buy, you might need to consider the X-factor next. This parameter defines the data read speed of a DVD ROM drive. Some IDE drives have a high x-factor of up to 48X, and others a low value of 8X. The higher the value, the faster data can be read from the optical disk.

Where to Buy DVD ROM Drives

After considering all the factors, you now have the last task of deciding where to source the drives. That should not be a problem since you are already here. With ALLHDD, you can buy brand-new or refurbished products at the best price. There are also all models for every application. Contact us to know more about shopping on our website.

What is the Manufacturer/Brand Warranty?

In general, a manufacturer's warranty service/support is a written guarantee to the buyer of a product. Its terms assure the replacement or repair of the product, if necessary, within a specified period after the purchase (2-5 years depends on the brand/manufacturer). It is typically included in the price of the product. Products are brand new sealed and the original manufacturer box is complete with the Manufacturer's genuine warranty. For most of the brand new/retail products it comes with the manual and box, exceptions may apply (i.e., Cisco, Juniper Networks).
