not sure which is better, but just to say i know more than one person who has used novatech and they are usually very good
If you really want the dvd-rw, I would say go for the Evesham option, you are unlikely to get a drive for the novatech for the difference in price. You would probably have to go for something like the Freecom external drive which is almost £100 more.
Evesham have been around for a while, as far as I know they are a pretty reliable company, if not always the cheapest.
If you don't ned the dvd-rw though, go for the novatech.
