Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's made of something that exists in this dimension and has a nice weight to it. It's shiny and has a nice sticker on it

Cons: I guess the reviews are true for the most part. These blue drives are unpredictable for the most part. If you get one that works, then you got lucky it seems. Im glad it failed before I had all my data on it. It failed in less than 10 minutes

Other Thoughts: Spend a little more and get a black drive. I thought I could get away with spending a little less. Lesson learned

Verbatim 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 95102
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Always burn flawlessly. Been using these for years. Verbatim is the only brand I have used that burns consistently, and so that is the only brand I buy

Cons: what cons?

Other Thoughts: I read reviews about taiwan and india made discs. I dont know what thats about, but if you are burning coasters, then you should check your computer and/or the software you are burning with. I only use NERO and have never burned one coaster that I can remember with these, and I have burned over 300 of these verbatim discs (I still have them all, I archive movies and data on them). Thats not to say it is impossible to happen, but not at the rate some of these reviewers have mentioned. Get a better computer or better software

AVerMedia DVD EZMaker 7 - Digitalize Your Precious Moment! C039 USB 2.0 Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I used it to convert 1 (1 so far) VHS tape with the included software, and it worked. It recorded it at the same quality the tape played at on the tv directly through the vcr. I played another video through a older camcorder and it had some nice looking quality on the computer screen with the included software, but I didnt try capture that, but Im sure it would have been fine

Cons: I was unable to use my adobe premier elements 12 to capture. There was no audio. Furthermore, after uninstalling the included software (not the drivers), adobe would no longer even display the video, it looked like an old static ridden tv channel. I tried using the S-video part of the device, but nothing happened, no video. I am assuming that part of this device I have doesn't work, but I havent fully confirmed that, but the RCA part does work just fine. Also, the drivers on the included disk didnt work on my windows 7, so just go get the newest drivers from the website of avermedia and it works fine. I also recommend installing the drivers BEFORE you plug this into your USB port. That seemed to work the best for me, but results can vary

Other Thoughts: This will do for what I need it to do, and it seems to work reasonably fine. I just wish I could use adobe for the capturing due to the fact it is more robust, but, I can live with it. I have not tested other software, so there may be better alternatives out there to use with this device. But if you need basic converting and saving of your old VHS style tapes, this does work (not sure about the S-video part though). Another thing to keep in mind, the CD key for the software that is included is written on the back of the actual CD itself, not in the instruction booklet or anywhere else
