Good

Anonymous, Newegg
17 January 2009
  • Summary: Sony almost always has great quality.
  • Pros: Works Good, used this drive to replace the dvd drive in a HP Pavillion Laptop.
  • Cons: Nothing To Complain About, I just wish that laptop CD/DVD drives came with the bezel not attached so that you didn't have to risk breaking it to change it with the one off your laptop.

Replacement CD Drive for my Toshiba LapTop

James A., Newegg
15 April 2008
  • Summary: . Other: Installation is EASY - BUT ONLY after learning how. One screw UNDER the KeyBoard and one on the bottom are outside of the physical dimensions of the drive. You must somehow know that there are two brackets fastened by screws to the drive's case - and that the two screws holding the brackets...
  • Pros: . My CRX80A - substantially the same as the CRX890A - Fit right in to my Toshiba Satellite A15-S129. Same size, same shape - the brackets fit and it slid into the case easily. .
  • Cons: . Cons:`All I get is "IDE Error" on Boot. The computer does continue to boot and functions without other problems. The BIOS does not allow for settings related to the CD drive. I have not yet found a BIOS UpDate for the A15-S129. .
