external optical drive for mac mini

Recommended Posts

my 2010 mac mini internal dvd/cd is dying on me. i want to replace it with an external player,ripper, burner. I would spend up to $200 for a rock solid reliable piece. i assume connection to the mini would be via usb and i would continue to use itunes/pure music.


thanks for your recommendations.

I am just curious as I also have a 2010 Mac Mini. Isn't that a bit early for a drive to falter? Would it be cheaper to have it repaired or replaced? Do you feel an external will offer a functional and audible advantage?
