This review is from: SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black PATA Model SH-S202N LightScribe Support
Pros: Price is good, drive is very quite and fast.
Cons: I bought two of these drives, one of them Burns lightscribe,dvd-r,cd-r's just fine while the other one has had a few bad cd-r disks(2 out of 5) while using Verbatim Lightscribe Cd-r's. The drive I have had the issues with is in an external enclosure so maybe that has something to do with it.
Other Thoughts: This drive is very short, when mounted in my external enclosure the power is very hard to hook up when the drive is mounted far enough forward so the front fits nice.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: EVGA 256-P1-N399-LX GeForce 6200 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card
Pros: I can now use vista Aero, and dreamscene. Make sure to get drivers from Nvidia website so you have the newest ones.
Cons: The driver Included on CD and manufactures website is outdated and caused sleep and hibernate to not function in Vista SP1. when trying to do either you just end up at the login screen.
Dreamscene didn't work with old drivers, I would get a blue screen error and PC would crash when I tried to open any dreamscene video. driver from Nvidia fixed issue.
Sleep still doesn't work with this card, but hibernate now does with the newer driver.
Other Thoughts: Vista SP1 included driver is old too. if you do a fresh install of vista SP1 you need to install with your integrated video, then install this card after vistas install is complete, otherwise it will bluescreen during install.
Before installing this card disable your onboard video in XP or vista device manager. also check your bios settings an make sure you have it set to look for new card so you don't run into issues.
Reading online a bit I found out I shouldn't install this in PCI slot 1 on my dimension2400.
