    I mistyped. I.meant Bluetooth. Lol.

    That being said, disk drives are extremely common if you build your own PC. 😈

      Idk about now… But BluRay Disk drives were quite expensive and not worth it, only worth it if you could burn Blu rays but those were even more expensives. So not common at all. Even physical games that could have benefit from then used just multiple DVDs instead, like the Flight Simulator 2020 which uses likes 10 DVDs

        You said disk drives, not specifically bluray disk drives. The former is not entirely uncommon yet, though the latter may be. Although in retrospect it may have been obvious by context that that’s what you were talking about. Sorry about that.

          Well actually you got confused as I am not the guy who did say “disk drives”, that’s somebody else.

          In any case I understood you as talking about the non BluRay indicating they are common in builds.

          I mentioned BluRays because that’s the only one that nowadays could make sense to have and could be common to add to a build, but not even that is being used commonly due to being expensive and basically only used by movies and those are usually played elsewhere.

          I honestly don’t think most people would bother building a new PC with a normal disk drive, they are completely useless. New games/software/video/music are digital or use BluRays, except music I guess. And any other uses has been replaced with external USB drives or other mediums as those are better in many ways. So unless you have some specific need it’s worthless and if you have a need a external USB disk drive is more practical.

            I wouldn’t say they’re completely useless, but I can agree with enough of what you’re saying to at least respond with a simple “that’s fair.” :)
