would dvd burner on esata have a performance hit?

Recommended Posts

One of the things that annoys me at the moment is having to get to the frount of my case when i want to burn a disk, since i'm upgrading my pc at the moment anyway and I'll have a few esata ports on my new mobo it got me thinking.

 

I could put my burner in a caddy have it on my desk and I'd have no more problems.

 

The only issue i could forsee is that esata seems to be aimed more towards external hard drives rather than optical drives.

 

So i thought i'd see if anyone else has done this and af there are going to be any problems from doing it.

 

currently i have a pioneer 112 (pata) but i'm going to be adding a sata pioneer burner (possibly with bluray) soon.

ESATA means the SATA controllers will be in AHCI mode. AHCI sometimes does not play well with opticals, so you would have to test it to find out.

 

You could use a USB caddy or firewire caddy instead if desperate.
