This review is from: Samsung Electronics 24X DVDRW SATA Optical Drives Model SH-224FB/RSBS
Pros: When it worked everything was normal. Thought it was superior to the LITE-ON drives (their doors always failed to open so I always had to stick a pin in the tiny hole to open them).
Cons: There is NO lock for the sata cable therefore the cable comes loose with the slightest vibration on your system. What kind of company makes a sata connection that won't hold the cable in place?
After a few months it just doesn't detect any dvds I insert. Complete waste of money. Wish I could just get my money back or at least a replacement. No chance far as I can see.
Pros: Excellent FPS and smooth gameplay. Came with 3 games via the AMD promotion, only one of which I ended up playing (Alien Isolation).
Cons: Hate and I mean HATE Catalyst software and especially AMD Evolve bloatware. Don't get me started on unreliable drivers. Never had issue with Nvidia in my life.
Had an issue where no matter what monitor I plugged in to wither DVI output the primary would randomly SCRAMBLE when I moused over to my secondary monitor. I had to reboot to get the darn screen back to normal. HDMI simply would not work at all! (Found that out after the 30 days were up). Epic failure and had no luck finding a solution via support.
Other Thoughts: I sent VERY detailed info and the responses I got indicated that support had ignored much of what I told them. They only replied 3 times then stopped responding. Should have just returned the card but decided to keep trying to troubleshoot on my own and ended up past 30 days. So I boxed it up and will try and sell it. Such a waste of time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Still going strong, everything labeled and easy to read, cables covered with a nice material, not too stiff, has a bad to store all the cables in (see the cons below though).
Cons: I didn't notice this when I got it 5 months ago because I only owned one graphics card at a time. I just bought a new GPU and when I went to pair them up I discovered that 2 of the GPU power cables are completely missing. I checked the box to see how many were supposed to be included and sure enough there is supposed to be 4 6+2 PCI-E VGA cables, but my PSU only came with 2 in the box. Someone goofed at EVGA and so I am knocking off 1 star.
Other Thoughts: I noticed that they never bothered to respond to my previous review detailing why I DID meet all of their rebate requirements. This indicates to me that they have no interest in doing the right thing.
Seems a rarity when EVGA honors it's rebates (I envy those of you who got yours). I don't care how well you meet the criteria (I met them all!), they are looking for any excuse not to give it to you to make that extra bit of profit.
