This review is from: macally MEGACAM 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 Portable Video Camera W/ Built in Mic
Pros: I purchased this Macally MegaCam Oct 2012. Using WINXP SP3 on an older Dell D620. This camera is clear and responsive. The auto light correction is good and the built-in mic works well. I have not used it that much in almost 3 years, but when I have it's worked perfect. It has been connected that long so it does last. A nice feature is the built-in shutter that you can close when not using the camera. This way even if it is somehow remotely turned on, no image is sent. I paid 44.95 then, I see now it is currently listed for 23.99... At the time, it was the bleeding edge and still pulls it's weight.
Cons: I don't care for WIN8 because it's a resource hog, but related to this camera, I don't know if it will operate under WIN8. I use either XP, WIN7, or Linux. I will not upgrade to bloatware. I like my systems to run my apps and games, not waste resources on the OS.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this camera. It is also adjustable so that it can be hung off of the top of a flat-screen monitor, or as a stand alone camera. XP-SP3 and Win7 recognized the camera with no problems whatsoever.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Absolutely every single disc burns tremendously slow about .3, that's why they are so cheap. I tried different burn speeds and different software packages it made no difference whatsoever. I have tried many other brands and all of them work fine. I was patient and tried about 6 discsin various sections of the spindle, they all were bad. I am throwing the rest away. Save your money. I'm sorry I didn't try these sooner and possibly I could have got a partial refund I don't know the policy on bad media?
Other Thoughts: These are the cheapest discs that are on a spindle, there is a reason. They are garbage. Giving 0 stars is not an option but that's what they deserve.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill 700MB 52X CD-R 50 Packs Spindle Disc
Pros: These arrived as always from Newegg very quickly and super padded almost to the point of ridiculous but thanks. I got this 50 pack for $5.99 including free shipping with my Premier Shipping Account. I have only burned 5 of these and they all have burned perfectly. I STRONGLY suggest you wait the additional one minute and slow the burners down, it's not a race. Don't burn at maximum it's just not worth making a coaster. I always slow CDs down to 24x and DVDs down to 4x and DVD DL at 2.4x. I've never had a coaster. Sloooow it down people it's not worth throwing money away.
