This review is from: LG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model UH12NS30
Pros: 1.) Blu-Ray on your PC
2.) fast read speeds for DVD as well.
3.) Burning speeds are on par with dedicated DVD Burners
Cons: 1.) OEM part (no software or Blu-Ray codecs)
Other Thoughts: The only reason I gave it 4/5 instead of 5/5 is the lack of Blu-Ray playing capability out of the box. I understand it is OEM, but you would think it would have built it codecs for Blu-Ray video/audio.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: 1.) Push/Pull fan configuration
2.) All metal design w/ exposed (copper) heatpipes
Cons: 1.) somewhat tall (didn't worry me due to full tower case)
2.) aftermarket backplate no matter what socket type (again, con to some--not to me.)
Other Thoughts: This Cooler is absolutely amazing. My case is plenty deep for this to fit (AZZA Genesis 9000), but may be too tall for some mini-ATX or ITX cases. Does NOT obstruct any DIMM slots on my MoBo, but that may be a motherboard design.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eagle ET-AR504LR-BK 35 Watts RMS 2.1 Black Soundstage Speakers
Pros: I'm not a loud person, and I much prefer speakers with definition to their sound rather than sheer volume. With that being said these speakers keep that crisp sound into loud volumes--which is a major plus.
-Footprint (space taken up)
Cons: I did have some crackling in the beginning until the speaker wires settled and I found my perfect settings.
Other Thoughts: For only two weeks of ownership I can't state the longevity of these speakers, but for the time being it's a 4/5 eggs only because of the initial snap, crackle and pop.READ FULL REVIEW
