LITE-ON Black 4X BD-ROM 12X DVD-ROM 32X CD-ROM SATA Internal 4X Blu-ray DVD ROM Model DH-4O1S-08
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After 8 months, still works as it should. Perfect video playback with an AMD64 X2 4400, 2GB RAM, geForce 9800 w/ 512MB VRAM.

Cons: I wouldn't recommend any Blu-Ray drive for a serious home theater setup. The security issues with HD video and sound make it expensive (if at all possible) to get all the Blu-Ray goodness from your discs. In my case, I had a perfect picture, absolutely flawless on a 42" LCD TV at 1080p, but I couldn't get the lossless audio. Turns out, on top of everything being HDCP compatible, you need an approved protected audio path. This means a new sound card, and not many support this (I've found one - and only one - that may work).

Other Thoughts: Stick to standalone players or the PS3 for watching true HD movies. My drive is getting packed away in its box, since I have no further use for it.

Pros: Cheap RAM from a respected company.

Cons: Cons? Not a one.

Other Thoughts: Vista's specs say 512MB minimum. I say it's more like 2GB.

5 out of 5 eggs Great little device 01/26/2009

This review is from: SYBA SY-IDE2CF-NB25 Ultra IDE to Compact Flash Adapter

Pros: Worked flawlessly in an old Toshiba laptop. I have a 4GB card in it and I'm running Debian Linux with no problems.

Cons: A little slow, but still tolerable. Mounting holes only work for HD caddies with screws on the bottom, no on the sides lik mine. Some quick drilling took care of that.

Other Thoughts: It's weird having a laptop that runs so quiet.
