Based on several issues I'm having I think the drive in my 5006 may be in need of replacing. I've seen where many others here have done drive replacements, using several different drives.
I have an old Liteon LDW-811s (upgraded from a 411s) sitting around. I can get a sohw-1673s, a sohw-1693s, or a SHW-160PS6 (all of which people have used here). My question is which of the choices available would people here say would be the easiest to install (least cutting/tampering, best fit) yet provide a good solid replacement?
