ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lasted until around the time the warranty was up.

Cons: Lasted about 12 months before the blu-ray burner burned out. It still burns regular DVD's fine, but will no longer burn blu-ray.

Other Thoughts: There was a progressive deterioration in the burner's ability to burn blu-ray disks. It went from failing on some, to failing on most, to failing on all. It totally failed around the time the warranty was over, maybe a little beyond that time. I tried using disks from 3 different manufacturers, but it didn't make a difference. Basically, I spent 80 bucks on a regular DVD burner.

I have always preferred ASUS optical drives when I buy them, but buying this blu-ray burner was a huge mistake.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q USB TV Tuner Stick/Hybrid Video Recorder with Remote Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It brings the wonder of television to you PC so you don't have to have your TV and PC running at the same time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Let's face it, there are not many good TV tuners that will make everyone 100% satisfied. Of the ones available, Hauppauge is the lesser of all the evils and works more reliably and better than others. The picture is not as clear as I would like it to be, but that's largely a function of the analog cable service rather than the device itself.

The unit I purchased went bad about 14 months after I purchased it. I RMAed it and there were no problems getting a replacement from Hauppauge even though I reside in the lightning state, and it's very possible that a lightning storm was the cause of the failure . It is under warranty for 2 years, and Hauppauge does honor their warranty on this tuner.

In case anyone is looking for alternatives to the WinTV7 software that comes with the tuner, I downloaded and installed NextPVR as a backup to WinTV7 and it does work with the tuner once it is configured correctly. It also works with XBMC.

Microsoft Keyboard 200 6JH-00001 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Please disregard my previous review 02/06/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Keyboard 200 6JH-00001 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard has been working like a champ for almost a year

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I submitted a previous review erroneously for this keyboard when it was supposed to be for a Gigabyte mouse. I bought them both together and clicked on the keyboard review link by mistake. My bad. :-(

My humblest apologies.
