internal DVD writer vs external DVD

Internal DVD writer vs external DVD Is there much of a performance difference between these two types? I'm choosing between an upgrade for the desktop (IDE) or an external one? I will use it a lot so speed is probably the main consideration.

Internal will be faster as external will be either usb / usb2 / or firewire...
all slower than your motherboard bus speed external also needs extra cables and prob power supply
