Pros: This GPU is great. Came from a GTX 570, which was fine for a quite a while, could even play newer games although not on high settings. Maxed everything out I have tried so far, Far Cry 4 runs great. I would say this is great value for the $$$
Although I have read some reviews stating there is coil whine, I have had none, even when running WEI. Even the fans are barely audible when ramped up. Far Cry did BSOD once, but that may be the game, not sure.
Cons: Newegg shipping was terrible. I have learned not to use the 'egg saver' shipping. Took over 2 weeks to get it.
Other than that, as far as the actual product, I guess when I got it some of the fins inside were bent, not quite sure how that happened, must have been during manufacturing. Would be nice to have a backplate too, I don't think you can even get one for this yet.
Other Thoughts: Not sure why some complain about coil whine, personally I have never had a GPU that has done that, ever. I always run high quality power supplies and run behind a UPS, maybe that helps.
Running on a Asus Z87 Pro, 4770k, 32GB Ares 2600 RAM.
Pros: I am happy with this drive. With DVDFAB or Cyberlink I was able to write the full 23.3 GB in about 20 minutes. Ripping a 50GB BD took about 35 minutes.
The one i got was the latest firmware, so i didnt have to update.
I think you are always better off buying OEM and purchasing/obtaining your own software then using what they come with.
Cons: The drive sometimes makes an annoying high pitched sound, but not often.
Other Thoughts: Good drive for the price. I bought the Optical Quantium BD-R 4x discs, they burn at 12x with this drive and DVDFab or Cyberlink.
People who complain about lack of software are mentally encumbered. (newegg's inappropriate word is sensitive...) They put OEM in the description for a reason. Irritating when people give items bad reviews becasue of that...
This review is from: Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50
Pros: Bought a pack of these and was a bit skeptical about quality because of the price. But after using them, I'm impressed. Burning them with my LiteOn IHBS112-04 is very fast.
They say 4x, but i am able to burn at 12 with DVDFAB and Cyberlink. They work great in my PS3 as well.
