Pros: -Plays Blu-ray movie discs smoothly via the included PowerDVD 9 software (You need to download a ~100MB free update after installing from the disc for it to work properly).
-FAST ripping speed for those looking to back up a Blu-ray movie to a video file or disc image.
-Easy firmware upgrades with SmartPack utility (using newest firmware CL0K at the time of this review).
Cons: The only thing it can't do is LightScribe, but unless you are publishing software discs for resale or happen to have OCD about the aesthetics of your discs, who really needs it that badly.
Other Thoughts: Awesome drive, really hope it will last for a long time.
If you really need LightScribe, there is an otherwise identical LITE-ON drive with that feature included for 30 dollars more.
This review is from: ASUS Arctic Square 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler
-Good performance for 2 years and counting
-Awesome shiny chrome look to it
-Includes blue LEDs to give your case some more character in the dark
Cons: The part which attaches to the motherboard to lock the cooler into place is pretty wide and will not fit properly on some motherboards due to heatsinks for the northbridge.
Other Thoughts: It only fit sideways on my motherboard, so my arctic square blows air toward the top of the case rather than toward the back. This probably increases my temps a bit because my case's intake fans can't effectively blow into the intake side of this cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I ordered this drive for storing my files and perhaps PC backups. I was lucky to have a friend point this drive out to me during a sale when they were offering $15 off. At $75 for 2TB It was hard to ask for more. Definitely not something you would want to install your operating system on, but for extra storage it is one of the best drives on newegg at the moment.
Also included 4 screws for securing it to your HDD cage.
Cons: 5400 RPM makes transfer speeds a little slower than many users are accustomed to when using 7200 RPM drives. Still great capacity for a media server or storage though.
Other Thoughts: When I formatted this with the maximum sized NTFS partition, I was left with 1.81 TB of free drive space.READ FULL REVIEW
