This review is from: COUGAR KBC700-3IS 700K Aluminum Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches
Pros: I paired the Cougar 700K Blue Switches (good for typing) with the wireless "real power hog" the Mad Katz RAT9. So, I don't look back! I am not a gamer but I like to take their stuff because exceeds my expectations for most common domestic desktop applications. Both are very responsive! I don't see any drivers or applications hung ups. To install them I did remove any previous keyboard and mouse applications. First, I used my old wired mouse to walk me through the installation process. Just plug them in! Then, I installed the RAT9's application and later the Cougar UIX from their websites. Good to go!
Cons: The delivery did very lousy job. The UPS brought the Cougar 700K with the original box exposed to the conditions all dusty. To open I had to disinfect it. I am having second thought to buy again from Newegg.
Other Thoughts: Try it! You won't regret.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It pop's anything you throw at!
Cons: This CPU should be available one year ago!
Other Thoughts: Among many things PC is composed by:
Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition (upgraded from Phenom 9950)
K9A2 Platinum (updated the latest bios)
One 15000 RPM Fujitsu HD (Promise SAS controller build in mainboard)
Lite On 4X Blue-ray Burner (I can see even pimples, and hear mistakes from recording studio. Unbelievable, but true!)
2 Radeons 4870 in CrossFire (They speak for themselves!)
Vista 64 (A must have!)
Creative GigaWorks' T-20 speakers (Most of the time, I feel discouraged to connect my Toslink into my Pioneer Sound System.)
Acer LCD 24" monitor 1920 x 1200 (without speakers)
This review is from: LITE-ON Black 4X BD-R 2X BD-RE 12X DVD+R 4X BD-ROM SATA 4X Blu-ray Burner DH-4B1S-08
Pros: A very solid performer in audio and video quality. It does what it says. Of course, your hardware and software has to be Blu Ray capable.
Cons: Lite On SATA model DH - 4B1S - 08 Windows driver issues (solved)
According to Intel, the SATA controller has three modes of operation:
1) IDE mode - no AHCI, no RAID
2) SATA mode (also called AHCI mode) - AHCI enabled, no RAID
3) RAID mode - AHCI enabled, RAID enabled
NOTE: Your mainboard may not have all the three options.
In bios, when setting the SATA controller is important to understand:
An IDE mode device uses a different driver than SATA and RAID mode device.
The Lite On 4B1S - 08 is an IDE mode device and uses a native Microsoft driver.
My driver files: .../cdrom.sys (Microsoft), and .../clbstor.sys (Cyberlink).
Other Thoughts: The Microsoft advice did not work for me: To manually delete the registry entries, go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class.
Select the folder 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
Look for UpperFilters and/or LowerFilters. Remove those entrees.
Once removed, there should be 8 entrees on the right side.
Restart computer. DONE DEAL (my .../clbstor.sys was gone)!
