This review is from: D-Link GO-SW-8GE Smart 8-Port Gigabit Metal Desktop Switch
Pros: I use this box in my home office to connect my iMac and Windows XP box to each other so I can move large files around. File transfer is much faster now. I have tested the connection with iperf, and it reports a consistent 971 Mbps, which is about as good as you can get from Gig-E. File transfers are much faster now.
The switch is easy to use right out of the box. Just plug 'n play. The lights on the front of the unit are easy to see and the light color tells you the connection speed.
Cons: The side-mounting plug is a bit odd, but not a deal-breaker.
Other Thoughts: I hope this thing lasts. The worry I have about such an inexpensive piece of equipment is that it might not last a long time. We'll see.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Verbatim 25GB 2X BD-R LTH 20 Packs Spindle Disc (use w/LTH Compat Drive) 97090
Pros: I have burned two discs and they work perfectly with my BDR-205 burner (using ImgBurn) and Panasonic BD player. Fantastic price, too. Prior to this product, my only sources for affordable BD-R media were Japanese sellers.
Other Thoughts: Hope they make LTH in dual-layer soon!
Regarding the review about the capacity being less than claimed, don't worry. You're getting the full capacity. This is a convention that's been around for ages. 25 GB refers to 25 billion bytes, but there are 1024 bytes in a KB, 1024 KB in a MB and so on. So the 23.3 GB is correct.
