Replacing Optical Drive on I-Mac G5

Has anyone replaced their optical drive on their I-Mac G5. I need to replace mine due to problem burning disc. (sound issues, fading, muffled sound, etc.) Has anyone tried a aftermarket Optical Drive or should I replace with the original apple Optical Drive. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks

I haven't had a need to replace an optical drive, but I've been purchasing from Other World Computing since the mid 90s. They're a great company that knows Apple products. $99 for a replacement seems like a good price.
