Again, you might also consider a *reputable* ebay seller for an exact match.
Retail (Dell) prices on either of those drives will likely range from $90 or
more for the CDRW, and up to $179 for the combo drive.
I purchased a D610 combo drive (24x) on ebay for $56.00 including shipping
not a month ago. The (reputable) seller was an individual though, and not a
reseller. Reseller prices will generally run $80 or more + shipping on
Trust your own comfort level no matter which vendor you choose. Those
