Pros: Update from early 2013. These discs burn well using an LG blu ray burner, but I have decided to go back and check these discs.
Cons: After storing them about 8 months. Virtually every one of these discs have read errors on the first part of the disc. The later portions seem to read fine. I now have to recover a couple terabytes of data stored on these discs and parity data that I (thankfully) decided to keep stored elsewhere. The longevity of these discs seem to be an issue. I have another set of the 4x discs I have used, and I hope the 4x will be better off.
Other Thoughts: While initially these seem to be a good disc, there seems to be an issue with the life span of these discs. I hope it is only the way I have stored them, and will find out after I recover the data I have lost, I am going to test the discs I stored using a different method.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Optical Quantum 25GB 6X BD-R 25 Packs Disc Model OQBDR06LT-25
Pros: Very good storage medium, although I cannot comment on the longevity. According to the manufacturer's website, this disc supports write speeds up to 12x with a compatible burner, which I have (an LG BH14NS40, a beast of a drive). I can confirm that this disc will write at burst speeds of 12x and will constantly maintain about 9-10x. I am writing 25 gigs of data in about 12 minutes. Not bad for a blu ray dics. All in all, I will buy these again, unless longevity turns out to be an issue. I am currently using these to archive old dvds, as I can store several dvds on one blu ray disc. Hope these last. Have not had any coasters yet (nor does it look like I will).
Cons: none really, wish they would sustain 12x, but considering most blu rays only write at six, I will take 10xREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Broadway Com Corp P4-OKIA600-BLACK 600W ATX Power Supply
Pros: This was a great power supply to start with, but after about a year, the 12v rail is running high 12.4 to 12.6 volts. I believe this is what fried my hd 4870 and my scythe fan controller, because both failed within about 3 days of each other. After they failed, I checked the voltage, and it was holding at 12.3 volts. Also causing boot problems. Will be shutting the psu down until I can get another (and much better) one.
Cons: Fried my HD 4870 and my Scythe fan controller.
Other Thoughts: Like I said before. This worked very well at first, but began to fail after about 1 year.READ FULL REVIEW
