GEAR HEAD 24x DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R Black SATA Model 24XDVDINT
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This was a great drive for around 2 years.

Cons: Unfortunately, the door belt broke after 2 years. No apparent cause, just wouldn't open one day and some investigation revealed the cause. I don't think I've ever had this happen, and it may be a fluke for this brand also; or it may be a part that they went a bit TOO cheap on. No way to tell.

This drive was also just a bit harder than most to get the faceplate off. In this case it didn't matter, but if you're planning on painting it, it may be a consideration.

PQI U822V 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6822-008GR5XXX
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad so far 10/04/2012

This review is from: PQI U822V 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6822-008GR5XXX

Pros: Haven't done any tests to verify the speeds, but the construction is nice and the size is fine.

Comes with a keyring clip and a small chain (can use one or both).

Cons: It's formatted in some odd manner such that the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool wasn't able to format it (so that it could be used as a Windows 7 installation drive). I was able to clean it using these steps (found online):

Open command prompt.

Type in command line

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (USB Stick)
CLEAN ALL
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=FAT32
ASSIGN
EXIT
EXIT

(Takes a while on some steps)

(I don't think it's U3, or any similar launch, but I have autorun disabled so I'm not positive.)

Also includes some trial software for (IIRC) anti-virus.

Saitek PZ30AUR 104 Normal Keys 4 Function Keys USB Wired Standard Eclipse Red Backlit Keyboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I like these keyboards -- I've owned several different versions.

I like the way they look, and the way they feel.

Cons: 2 BIG problems:

1 -- the paint will wear off on common keys and you'll have a smudge on the clear plastic base instead of a nice letter.

2 -- many games will detect these keyboards a gamepads AND keyboards. So you'll end up with phantom input from the phantom gamepad. (Usually end up walking one direction with no way to stop.) This has been a problem for years unfortunately and still hasn't been resolved. Something to do with the way it presents itself to Windows.
