Some specs in relation to my laptop:

  • 8x SATA DVD±R/RW/Dual Layer (+ 24x CD-RW)

  • Has both usb 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

  • Will be installing on a msata SSD with no other OS

Since Ubuntu gives you the option of either creating a DVD or USB to use to install Ubuntu I am wondering is their any advantage or dis-advantage of using one device over the other when both are present?

Main items I'd be interested in is one less error/fault prone than the other and is it faster to install Ubuntu by USB or DVD?

You have USB 3.0 ports. If you have a USB 3.0 drive available, the speed alone should be enough to justify using it.

Other than speed, one advantage would be availability of persistence on USB drives, but I don't think that would be important enough for you.
