Pros: Large storage capacity in small physical footprint - quiet
Cons: Sometimes when copying between devices the speed is 13MB/sec - other times it is instataneous to copy 4GB+ files. Very strange performance in real-world situations.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 16X bluray - Sata, black, matches everything else in the case, nifty blue activity light.
Cons: Reads approximately 75% of my DVD collection and reads all blurays. Oddly enough, the prior model BW-12 is a much better product. The BW-12 reads every disc I put into it - the BW-16 reads 'most' but not all.
Other Thoughts: BluRay playback software would have been great as that is $60+ to buy separately. The included software for these drives sucks - you'd be better off downloading CladDVD, DVDShrink, DVDFab, WinX DVD Ripper, Freemake, etc etc - any decent BluRay Playback software will run you a lot of cash, but for just ripping blurays or reading/writing files and discs it works fine when it can recognize a disc is in it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This drive just won't die. Have been using it since day 1 as a readyboost drive - always on, always connected to windows, just upgraded the pc, and any speed issues with this were resolved with a simple full reformat and it's back to new quality. Remarkable product from Corsair.
Cons: Too bad it's discontinued but then with USB3 drives out now, this is rather slow by comparisson.READ FULL REVIEW
