ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: remarkable value engineering
works good for awhile

Cons: Fist one lasted 51 weeks
Second one lasted 51 weeks
a little loud when at full speed

Other Thoughts: Talk about great value engineering. This drive was used only rarely. The fist one made it to within a week of the warranty period. No problem getting a replacement from ASUS (had to pay for shipping though).
The replacement lasted the same amount of time almost to the day. The warranty is apparently the life of the product. They specs say it uses less energy. I think that's because when they die they don't use any energy at all. If you think $50 to $60 for a year of of use is OK then this is a good deal.
I have other ASUS products that are great but I won't be replacing this drive with an ASUS drive.

PowerColor AX7850 2GBD5-2DHE/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Price
Works as expected
Runs cool and quiet

Cons: Silly Mail in rebate rules ( one per customer)
Would have liked to order 2 or 3.

Instant rebates good.
Mail in rebates not so good

Other Thoughts: I ordered this GPU before there we any reviews,and was a little worried after reading some of the less than stellar reviews that started posting. Now that I have installed it I can report that I have had none of the problems some others have reported.
1. The card installed perfectly
2. The fan is quiet, at least as quiet as the Sapphire 6850 it is replacing.
3. The fan speed adjusts based on temp. It has never needed to go above 50%.
4. On factory settings I burned it in with Fur Mark and the temp. never went above 74 c. (still quiet)
5. I ran it a bit on Bio Shock Infinite. On 1080 p, highest settings it ran 60 fps without breathing hard. (still quiet)

If you want to check your fan speed and performance go into the AMD Control Center and click on GPU Overdrive under the Performance tab. There you can see the temp and fan speed of the GPU. I honestly can’t hear much difference between idle and 100% fan speed.

This is my first Power Color Product and so far I couldn’t be happier. I have not done extensive testing on games but I would expect it to perform as any other 7850. Time will tell on durability, any issues here would obviously affect this review.

HooToo HT-WR01 Wireless N 300 Mbps 802.11 b/g/n Access Point / Signal Repeater / Range Extender (White)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: See other thoughts

Cons: See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: As an update to be fair to this reseller, I did receive several support emails over night. Suggestions where made which did not improve the situation so I requested an R.M.A.
I received a complete refund no questions asked so I would not hesitate to buy from this seller.
