Looking for decent external cd/dvd burner

Any suggestions? So many brands on Amazon. Not sure which one to get. I need USB 3.0 and cd/dvd burner. Any ideas?

Ya your right USB 2.0 or 3.0 doesn't make a difference.

I have some cheap generic one from AliExpress. They didn't bother to put a brand name on it. It works fine. The actual drives all come from a few big manufacturers, and it's not hard to put it in an enclosure with a USB interface. The generic driver is built into Windows, so no software needed.

just get whatever the cheapest one u can find from a known brand like ASUS LG or Pioneer. usb 2 or 3 won't matter for dvd or cd write or read speeds.
