Rosewill USB 3.0 External Slim Aluminum 6x Blu-ray Writer Model RDED-12001 BDXL Support w/ Full Cyberlink PowerDVD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: There's not much to say. This Blu-ray seems to be fast works well on both PC & Mac. (I'm not using the included software.)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Minor nitpick: I purchased this with a mail in rebate. I'm not a fan of rebates. I would rather have a fair upfront price.

Shuttle SZ68R5 Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1155) Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel Z68 Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 integrated in the processor 1 x HDMI Barebone
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: See my previous post. This is an excellent product. I'm using it as a VMWare learning workstation. It fully supports Intel VT-d technology.

Cons: There are no significant cons. You get a lot of bang for the buck.

Other Thoughts: I previously wrote that the SZ68R5 does not support VT-d. I was mistaken. My 2700K was the problem. Intel K chips does not support VT-d. I downgraded to a 2600.

Use caution when you remove the CPU radiator! My system did not have a sturdy CPU socket protector installed yet one was included in the packaging.

Shuttle SZ68R5 Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1155) Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel Z68 Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 integrated in the processor 1 x HDMI Barebone
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is an excellent product. My intent is to build a VMware learning computer. I haven't been in the PC building scene for several years and I'm very impressed with how easy, quiet, and robust this product is. It seems to post and boot much faster than the other 2011/2012 Sandy Bridge computers I have worked with. (including those with SSDs)

Cons: I choose this product hoping that it supports Intel VT-d. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. :( I emailed Shuttle support to request an updated BIOS thus the four eggs. (Fingers crossed)

VT-d allows a VM to directly access i/o hardware. It is useful for experimenting with virtualized file servers or 10Gb Ethernet.

Other Thoughts: The mSATA boot device is novel, very fast, a great way to maximize your available storage. I hope that the mSATA market grows. It seems to be a cost effective alternative to an SSD.

Also, use caution when you remove the CPU radiator. My system did not have a sturdy CPU socket protector installed. You risk touching the CPU pins with the radiator, if you are careless.
