PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA  Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Worked great for 2 yrs 10/19/2015

This review is from: PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM

Pros: Fast, handles most DVD RW CD RW

Cons: Not the quality I had expected from Plextor

Other Thoughts: My first CD burner was a Plextor. That was way back when they used a caddy. That drive performed perfectly for nearly 10 years. Figuring that Plextor was still a good name, I purchased the Plextor Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA Burner Drive PX-891SAW-OEM.
It worked well for 2 years, but now the eject button on the front does not work too well. I need to press it really hard, and in a certain spot to eject the disk. I opened up the drive to see what I could do, and was dismayed at the low quality - thin plastics that they are using today. Not a shadow of the old Plextor. But I guess for under $30, what was I to expect.
I may be looking for a blue-ray drive soon, but not sure I will go with another Plextor.

It is very disturbing to find that almost everything is made only to satisfy the price, and not quality. So we're throwing all this plastic out into the landfills every year. It's a shame.

New Replacement Battery For Panasonic NiMH AAA Cordless Phones 8 Pack
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Good, inexpensive, but- 01/18/2015

This review is from: New Replacement Battery For Panasonic NiMH AAA Cordless Phones 8 Pack

Pros: Inexpensive, 800mAh compatible with Panasonic (and others) cordless phone, packed well.

Cons: plastic outer wrap on battery extends onto the edges of the negative (bottom) terminal of the battery, preventing contact with the terminals in some phones. Need to cut off plastic flush with edge of battery so it does not wrap onto the terminal.

Other Thoughts: I bought these to replace the Panasonic batteries in the phone. I tried Eneloops prior to these batteries, but they did not last very long, most likely because the phone is overcharging the batteries.
I chose these because they are cheap, and are not Low Self Discharge as the Eneloops are. This type of battery may be able to handle a constant trickle charge better than the Eneloops.

5 out of 5 eggs I am impressed with this drive 12/02/2013

This review is from: PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM

Pros: Very fast! Compared to my previous DVD/RW, an Asus which I thought was also 48X CD read, this drive is much faster when extracting (ripping) songs from audio CD's. The tray slides out very smoothly, and the drive is extremely quiet.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: For the price ($29.95 + tax and S/H, total $35.29, this is an excellent DVD +/- RW drive. I have always trusted Plextor, and it looks like this drive is another winner.
