Pioneer Black 15X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA 15X Internal Blu-ray Burner BDR-208DBK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works well with DL disks for up to 50GB storage.

Cons: Bare drive--no software included.If you want to watch Blu-Ray movies. This is only part of what you need.Right now, Blu-Ray movies are a moving target and the available software is not keeping up with DRM. Software that plays movies from a year ago will not necessarily play today's movies.Even software that plays the movies OK doesn't always know how to handle the video menu system.

Other Thoughts: Designed for data storage, not for movie watching.

Silicon Power 500GB Rugged Armor A80 Military Grade Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model SP500GBPHDA80S3B Blue
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good shock mounted drive will stand up under most abuse.

Cons: We need to learn a new paradigm on how to handle USB 3 connectors. This was my 1st USB 3 device. The connectors on the device, not the cable, are quite delicate. I see reports all over the Internet of the same problem. USB 3 device becomes intermittent, and then a few days later, fails entirely.

Other Thoughts: I had to remove my drive from the case, voiding warrantee, to recover the data I had backed up on the drive. That's how I know the shock mounting is so good!

LG 6X BD-ROM 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive For Notebooks Model CT40N
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is intended for my Car PC.
Perfect fit for my CarPC case.

Cons: No where on Newegg site or even the manufacturer's site does it say that it requires a mini-sata power connector!
Newegg item #N82E16812186155 or similar is required to use this.

Other Thoughts: Have not used it yet as I now have a space conflict between this and the CPU fan. Ordering a low profile fan to compensate.
