Replacing a superdrive. What is a good replacement?

I have a MacBook core duo white Model Identifier: MacBook1,1 2ghz. The superdrive is dying and is in need of replacement. I was wondering what would be a good replacement. It has the MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857 in it right now. I want a superdrive that is not matishita. Any recomendations would be great.
