Pros: Fast and pretty quite during burns.
Although it heats up a bit in a multi burn session ( 4 or more DVD burns right after each other) I got no coasters.

Cons: Deducted 1 star for being noisy on PC startup. It kind of clicks and clacks for a few seconds when the PC is started and the drive has power applied to it. (Gear bay drive noise)

Other Thoughts: Other then the one Con I posted it operates well. Watched a DVD movie using it and was quiet the whole time when it was reading.

Pros: Once you get the quirks out of the way it's a solid monitor.
It's August 17, 2016 and I'm still on it.
Almost 9 years and it's still going.

Cons: Required 1 RMA for R82-R83 capacitor replacement (Well known issue after a few years)
Required 1 out of warranty repair I did myself (Replaced 6 dry capacitors on power board)

Other Thoughts: As I just built a new system recently I was looking to upgrade to a new modern monitor and was looking at when I purchased this one. It was in November of 2008 so this thing has been solid for over 8 years. Because of the heat generated from this monitor those capacitors dry out and cause most of the issues people were having. If you replace them as you can see it can extend the life of the monitor. I'm using it to write this now but it's getting long in the tooth for gaming is why I'm looking now but since this has been a solid unit I will be looking at other Hanns-G in the future.

MSI GeForce GTX 960 DirectX 12 GTX 960 GAMING 100ME 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card

Pros: Worked great when it did and looked good
Love the Logo lights

Cons: Display issues on day 36
Locked into 800X600 mode (not driver related)
Power issue on powering up
Graphic Glitch's on power on

Other Thoughts: The GPU lasted a total of 36 days before the issues started. It was out by 6 days of neweggs return policy so it had to be RMA'ed to MSI. MSI has had it for 13 days and still not shipped the replacement so MSI's RMA service is flawed as it should not take this long to ship back a defective card. It's likely I'll get a refurbished card (someone else's problem card) to replace a new card that's 36 days old.

I'll have to consider this defective product if I ever purchase from MSI again but I do have other MSI products but will change brands in a heartbeat if this becomes a pattern. I've had issues before in other PC builds where I had to RMA an item but NEVER in under a year or so and 36 days is not normal for a failure. Not a happy Camper!
