Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Update to previous review 06/20/2014

This review is from: Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50

Pros: Inexpensive... if you get a decent batch

Cons: You might hit a batch of coasters...

Other Thoughts: I'm increasing my original 1 star rating to 3 stars... while I initially burned a bunch of coasters,I am now getting reliable burns. I actually moved the orignal LG drive to another machine... and bought a Pioneer Blu-ray Burner SATA BDR-209DBK. I made another two coasters in the Pioneer... then after that every burn has completed and verified. So I'm hoping it was just a string of faulty discs in the first pack. NewEgg support was helpful and I almost RMA'd the whole batch... but they asked that I test the second stack... if my current good results continue I'll remain happy. I'll re-test in the LG drive soon.. Thanks NewEgg!

1 out of 5 eggs Not working with LG WH12LS39 05/26/2014

This review is from: Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50

Pros: low Price, standard spindle packaging, fast delivery

Cons: they do not burn in an LG WH12LS39 writer

Other Thoughts: My LG WH12LS39 BluRay writer does not like these discs at all. You might get a write to start if you set your speed to 4X but so far none have closed without errors. Firmware is up-to-date and so far no successful burns after trying at least 4 different programs. I guess you get what you pay for... bummed that I bought two spindles!

Same drive had no problem with a stack of Rosewill RMI-SB25I BD-R's.

IVIEW HFR2-SU3 RAID 0/1/3/5/10, JBOD, CLONE, Normal 4 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I picked up a pair of these during what I believe was a close-out deal. The enclosure is mostly brushed aluminum with plastic accents. Structurally it seems fairly solid. It's very easy to install drives and to configure the mode. The eSata connection makes transfers speedy. The cooling fan is reasonably quiet.

Cons: The plastic drive brackets that you attach to each hard drive are secured with 2 screws (one on each side of the drive.) This allows the bracket to pivot a bit in relation to the drive... but it doesn't cause a problem when inserting the drives in the case.

Other Thoughts: So far, I've only run the enclosure in JBOD mode (2x1TB and 2x80GB) via eSata cable. The connection was easy and runs fast. Large transfers average between 60 to 100 MB/sec. On sale I picked these up for less than $40 each... an incredible bargain.

The only disappointment was with NewEgg's new shipping options. The free shipping option (that used to be UPS and took about 2 to 3 days) took about 7 or 8 days via the unholy FedEx -> US Post Office alliance. In the past, FedEx in my area has proven to be unreliable and consumer unfriendly... at least this time the packages got to the proper destination.
