LG WH08LS20K Black 8X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 6X BD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 8X Blu-ray Burner - Bulk
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, fast, 4MB buffer.

Cons: Do not burn Blu: exchanged for another drive, which do not work either. Faulty firmware is a suspect. No firmware updates available yet, not even option to re-image existing. Customer service at LG is useless, they have a very limited tech knowledge and unwilling to help.

Other Thoughts: ImgBurn reports the drive tries to burn at x8, while it was set to burn at x4. Takes two hours to make... a garbage non-readable disc :( Same story with Nero 9.
Same story when trying x2.
This drive is listed only on commercial LG website, not the regular consumer. This drive is not the same as BD08LS20, it has 4MB buffer.

2 out of 5 eggs Bad Customer Service/Support 01/15/2009

This review is from: Linksys WRT150N-RM Wireless-N Home Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft

Pros: Cheap, fast, and easy to setup.

Cons: WRT150N do not work well with P2P applications, and anything which require high volume of port connections: the router locks up (crashes) every few hour and require power unplugging to restore its functionality.

Other people on the Internet in general confirm this problem, which seem to be in the hardware because I already updated the firmware and played with settings.

Other Thoughts: I'd give the router 4 stars, but the Linksys customer support is very bad:

The router is on the warranty. I called Linksys to solve the problem. They could not. They told me second level tech support can solve it, but it's not free.

In summary they wanted me to pay them for a slim chance to solve the problem caused by their defective design of the router, while it is on the warranty!

Fantom Drives Titanium II 1TB USB 2.0 3.5

1 out of 5 eggs Bad customer service 02/07/2008

This review is from: Fantom Drives Titanium II 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive TFD1000U16

Pros: Western Digital core HDD, solid enclosure, turn on/off switch.

Cons: In the middle of full NTFS formaiiting, the system stops recognizing the drive. Happen each time I try to format the drive on two different computers.
Tech support is only by email and they don't respond for two business days (I got only automated request confirmation reply).

Other Thoughts: I'd give it two or three stars, but customer service is really non-existent...
