Optical Quantum 25GB 6X BD-R 50 Packs Spindle Blu-ray Media Logo Top Model OQBDR06LT-50
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Using an Asus burner running the Lite-On PL06 firmware from November '13. Imgburn sees the media as 10x compatible so I let it do its thing*. The first disc tried going over 6, but quickly reverted to 6 and finished correctly. Every disc since then has proceeded to 10x, and also finished correctly. So no coasters yet, most burn at 10x, and Verify confirms a solid burn for each.

* Source Media Type: BD-R (Disc ID: CMCMAG-BA5-000) (Speeds: 4x, 6x, 8x, 10x)

Cons: none yet

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought as the far side of a wireless bridge on the 5GHz band. Required community-enhanced firmware, but then works great, even when the wired end of the bridge is a different brand. This one sits int he living room about 30' from the other, and the PS4 plugged into it can now download at my full 15Mbps speed, rather than an awful 20kbps using the PS4's built-in 2.4GHz wireless.

As a bonus, the USB port onboard can charge the PS4 controller, when oddly enough a USB-AC adapter can't.

Cons: in-box firmware didn't have the right options for bridging and security

Western Digital WD Green WD20EARX 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet, cool

Cons: Bought two and immediately ran Bitlocker on both to force a write to the whole drive. One worked fine, and the other reported some bad sectors. Following up on the bad one with chkdsk caught a huge number and the scan virtually stopped making progress.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is accepting it for refund without a restocking fee, and at least I caught it before there was data to be lost. Remember to do a full write to new HDDs to catch these things before it matters.
