ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: it worked fine for about a year of limited use, other than being noisy.

Cons: Noisy at startup, including every time the PC wakes from sleep.
found it running amok one day - spinning wildly, sounding like a jet engine. Had to reboot the PC to get it to stop. The CD that was in it was too hot to touch.
Sometimes it reads a CD, sometimes not now.

Other Thoughts: Still works kind of, but just ordered a Samsung, which I've had better experience with on two other PC's.

GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Universal Bluetooth Wireless In-Car FM Transmitter with USB Charging , Integrated Playback Controls , and Hands-Free Calling
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: it does make and receive calls. Mic seems to be clear - those on the other end of the call can hear the driver speaking.

Cons: lots of noise on audio. Good enough for phone calls if the car interior isn't too loud, but IMO it's not good for listening to music from your phone.

Other Thoughts: If you're listening to a station or a CD, and a call comes in, you have to tune the radio to the FlexSmart. Setting a pre-set helps, but it's still an extra step besides hitting the "answer" button, or an extra 2 steps if you're listening to a CD or have a DVD going (like in our case - a minivan with rear entertainment system). not a con really, but just a note as the marketing material conveniently skips this info.

ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: it works? Seems fairly quiet when running

Cons: very noisy at start-up! It is annoying to me - it sort of beeps and burps, like it's doing some kind of self-test. and it does it every time my PC wakes from sleep too. My build is otherwise very quiet, so maybe it won't be an issue for those with loud graphics cards or multiple HDD's.

I bought a Samsung for my next build - much quieter.

Other Thoughts: I'd like to ding it more than one egg, but overall, it works fine so it seems unfair to take 2 eggs off for start-up noise.
