This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Aluminum front panel, plenty of build room, holds multiple hard drives, great looks, sturdy construction
Cons: poor design with regard to screw holes. Plastic grill for cards cheap and easy to break. instructions poor and not helpful
Other Thoughts: plan ahead for power supply installation, screws may not line up or you may have to reverse the direction. Flip down panel in front may not fit within media center for some, measure carefully. Get a usb IR reader for your remote that sits on top, easy to use. Overall, a great case for the money, I would buy again - it just needs some finesse to work.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache E-IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology
Pros: Great speed as advertised. Works with several blank media types (I have tried 3 successfully). Easy to install and bundled Nero is a nice addition. Great price and decent quality of construction (a little flimsy on the materials).
Cons: A little noisy, but nothing that is unreasonable.
Other Thoughts: For the price, you can not beat it and it is very simple to install and use. Have not tried Lightscribe yet... but the burn times seem long and may keep me from using it other than rarely.READ FULL REVIEW
