RiDATA 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model DRD-4716-RDCB100E
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Buy if you love recycling plastic 08/24/2011

This review is from: RiDATA 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model DRD-4716-RDCB100E

Pros: Inexpensive , free shipping at the time , nice surface texture for writing disc name with ink or marker

Cons: High failure(unburnable) although Nero seems to work for the most part just fine(some burn options such as simulation not available with this media). However i dont usually use Nero because i prefer ConvertXtoDVD to convert and burn and although the convert part works just fine the burn portion stalls out. First i thought it was the software so i used EM Total Video Converter with the same result. Have used HP, Staples brand, Fujifilm , Sony , Memorex, Verbatim , Philips , Maxell , Imation and TDK media and NEVER had any issues.

Other Thoughts: Will never buy this brand again for media.

EVGA 01G-P1-N948-LR GeForce 9400 GT 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: PCI based vid card , so great for that "old" pc that lacks any other type of option.

1GB , 128-bit

Low-profile

Cons: Price , irks me bad that can get a better card for same price and in many cases for far less IF had any other option put plain ol vanilla PCI. Pretty much priced like this cause they know they have you by the you know what.

NO Free Shipping , wow the price was bad enough.

Seems to run hotter then i'd like but that's likely do to airflow in case , lack of fans.

Bracket came bent , easy fix.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card to put in an aging Dell mini pc with a total of just 3 PCI slots for expansion , other 2 slots are taken up by a sound card and wireless card . Replaced a XFX 5200 256Mb 128-bit which was in itself a replacement for the onboard video. It's my young son's pc and it pretty much got rid of the video lag he was having when playing EQ. Overall a very nice card , just now need to figure out how to keep cooler with very little room to play with inside case and i think no extra fan connections on mobo /shrug

Rosewill  Conqueror  WSL Triple 120mm Fans Steel ATX Mid tower Computer Case with Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price is not bad but in the end i think this case is overpriced.

Sufficient cooling.

Cons: The front case door is reversable. However i would highly recommend leaving the door where it is and not try to move it so it opens/closes from the other side. The hinges are spring loaded and once you release the hinges and take out the springs good luck putting them back on. I played the find the spring game for almost 2 hours before i finally just gave up and did not bother trying to put the door back on and just left it off. I had wanted to move it for easier access but it seems all i did was frustrate myself and now the case does not look as nice.

Scratches easy. Resealing the side panels is bothersome and likely will be imperfect(leave gaps) once removed.

Other Thoughts: This is more of an overall impression of Rosewill as a whole. It seems to me that they are on the top end of the "budget" build for pc gear. However it also seems thaty to make this so that they skimp on certain manufacturing quality controls. In other words you roll the die when you purchase one of their products. I have this case , a cpu cooler , card reader , usb card and psu all from Rosewill and they arte fine products thus far but all seem to have some minor but obvious flaw to them. Again i highly suspect due to manufacturing quality.

Went from 4 eggs earlier review to a 3 because of recent door hinge mishap formation of overall impression of Rosewill.
