Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
I have an Acer TravelMate Notebook 4502LMi with an internal Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S(PRS9) burner which is needing to be replaced, as it's mostly on the fritz not reading any DVD/CD. Writing either also becomes a hit and miss, often wasting multiple discs.
My question is what would be the best replacement(s) for the least amount of $$$, and any thing needing to be swapped from one to another, or watch out for gotchas, etc?
I did find a recommendation of a Panasonic UJ-845-B 8X Slim DVD Drive (186-117) for $79.99, but I've found other sites not recommending this drive.
Your thoughts would certainly be appreciated.
My recommendation is to get the exact replacement that Acer recommend. OR a third party equivalent.
In saying that as long as one has a warranty for said device, then really anything else is a moot point.
I think you will find that the Panasonic drive will be more than suitable.
