Although I know quite a bit about computer hardware, I won’t even pretend that I keep up with the seemingly endless issues regarding CD/DVD drives. Therefore, I hope one or more of you can help me answer the question…
Is the replacement drive I received at least as good as the one it’s replacing?
Hitachi-LG model GSA-4166B, manufactured in Nov05.
Toshiba-Samsung TS-H652L, manufactured in May06.
There is various other information on each drive’s label. I can supply more of this info upon request.
