Another source for these is microcenter.com:


$59.95, but it is a brand-new, 8x DL DVR-R/W from Samsung. If you just want a CD-ROM reader, it is a bit expensive... Maybe just look for a scrap SFF Dell PC?

Someone else mentioned centrix-intl.com - they are a Good Retailer, and I would second the suggestion to look at their offerings.
