Pros: - Slammed it into my HTPC, plugged everything in, worked like a charm.
Cons: - 300W seems a bit underpowered for a hardware out there today, however seeing as this was higher than what was already in my machine that had broken, it was worth a shot.
Other Thoughts: Brought my machine back to life, just as I was hoping. All's well that ends well!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed this on my Early-2011 15" MacBook Pro even though it isn't Mac certified, figured it would be worth the risk. Glad I did it. Installation was easy and my laptop's working perfectly. Mountain Lion DP4 is reading all of the RAM fully. Speedier than ever.
Cons: Nothing. Buy this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's been over a year and keeps working fine, plays any DVD/Blu-Ray I've thrown at it, matches my case well, works with Windows 7 as well as Mac OS X
Cons: PowerDVD 8, which this comes with, is the biggest piece of junk I've ever had the displeasure of using in all my days on this blue sphere we call Earth. It's as if it's sole purpose in existence is to tick off as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time possible. I sincerely hope that Cyberlink burns in a fiery abyss full of toxic waste and garbage for creating, and then deciding to stop supporting, this piece of software. I'm pretty sure PowerDVD 8, and PowerDVD 8 alone, will be responsible for all my nightmares in the months and years that will follow. The real cherry on the cake was when I bought Avatar Collector's Edition and it refused to play the disc, demanding I pay $99 to update to a newer version of PowerDVD. I don't think I've ever been physically angry at a piece of software, but that'd do it. My suggestion of what to do with the bundled PowerDVD 8 disc: use it as some sort of shiny frisbee, or perhaps a
coaster as you used to with the old AOL disc.
Other Thoughts: PowerDVD 8 has ruined my life.READ FULL REVIEW
