BYTECC DVD-100U3 Plastic Black SATA I/II USB 3.0 USB 3.0 External Slim O.D.D. Enclosure for Slim-SATA O.D.D. Devices
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sleek looking
Easy to install my brand new laptop's Blu-Ray writer (BD-RE) (UJ260)
Windows 7 recognized it immediately
AC Adapter included
Burns all of the media that the BD-RE drive supports (see HWiNFO)

Cons: Difficult to remove ODD once installed, will need pliers.
Instructions are unclear in some spots.
Included USB 3.0 was defective on my unit (had to spend ~$20 incl. S&H to replace it)

Other Thoughts: Just as I thought, the USB 3.0 cable was defective leading to coasters. I would give this product 5-stars, but I cannot overlook the fact that the manufacturer decided to ship their product with such a shoddy cable.

BYTECC DVD-100U3 Plastic Black SATA I/II USB 3.0 USB 3.0 External Slim O.D.D. Enclosure for Slim-SATA O.D.D. Devices
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sleek looking
Easy to install my brand new laptop's Blu-Ray writer (UJ260)
Windows 7 recognized it immediately

Cons: Burns coasters of Verbatim's BD-R's (97457) ("semaphore timeout period has expired" messages).
Burns coasters of Taiyo Yuden DVD-R's (Failed to Write Sectors 1122272 - 1122303 - Reason: The semaphore timeout period has expired.)
Difficult to remove ODD once installed, will need pliers.
Instructions are laughingly unclear: "...and then screw ODD on the enclosure"

Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit from another reseller for the express purpose of burning BD-R backups of my laptop's HDD. I was dismayed that the unit kept burning BD-R and DVD-R coasters. Is it a bad USB 3.0 cable they included in the unit? Disappointed customer here and this will influence my decision when considering products from BYTECC in the future.

Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Does the job, fans are a little lightweight and shortlasting 06/07/2010

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans

Pros: * Does the job of maintaining my laptop and its HDD 5-10C cooler.
* Easy positioning of the fans where you want them to be. As for myself, I placed them underneath my laptop's HDD and CPU/GPU

Cons: * Fans only blow at 1200 rpm, but I guess some compromise has to be made for quiet operation.
* I wish there a way to order additional usb-powered fan pairs.
* Fans are shortlived, as one of them started to make this rattling noise a little over two months after purchase (3/10/10).
* Terrible customer service, as my RMA request to Coolermaster to replace the faulty fan (5/24/10) is still pending (6/7/10) after two weeks.

Other Thoughts: Instead of waiting for my RMA status to be resolved, I decided to take matters into my own hands to fix the faulty fan. I first unscrewed the grating. Then, I popped out the fan using two small flathead precision screwdrivers. I applied a drop of lubricant (fanlube) to the bearing, popped the fan back and reattached the grating. Voila, the rattling noise disappeared after plugging the usb connector in.
