LG WH14NS40 works and burned 50GB ISO on Verbatim BD-DL-RE as expected

LG Electronics 14X SATA Blu-ray Internal Rewriter without Software, Black Model WH14NS40 - OEM
LG Electronics 14X SATA Blu-ray Internal Rewriter without Software, Black Model WH14NS40 - OEM

Pros: LG WH14NS40 works fine for me in Window 7 SP1 64-bit connected as both IDE or AHCI configuration in UEFI BIOS and the OS. It burned 50GB ISO on Verbatim BD-DL-RE as expected. In addition, during the 50GB ISO burn using ImgBurn v2.57, it was also running Prime95 64-bit torture test with 24GB/32GB memory load and 100% CPU load on AMD FX-8150. This OEM drive also comes with LG Super Multi Blue software.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: It took 90+ minutes to burn 50G data at 2x speed, hope it can go to 4x or faster in the future. Like anything we buy, it is entirely possible to get a lemon. If it is not lemon, a suggestion is to make sure not performing too many tasks at once if the system is not designed or tuned to do so.

Follow-up: Camera lens won't retract after 3 months

Pros: Just a follow-up on the issue of "Camera lens won't retract after 3 months". I sent it back to Canon Service Center, and within 10 days - that's pretty good service and turnaround. They sent back a refurbished but seemly working camera, except I had a black one, and I received a silver replacement.

Cons: none

Works properly with D-Link DIR-655 router without performance loss

Pros: First of all I was concerned if they would degrade the performance of the original antenna, that would be a waste of time and money. I am happy to report that they work properly with D-Link DIR-655 router without performance loss in my 2-story 3200-SqF house - a typical wood frame with drywall. I got three of them at 6 bucks each, and they slightly increase the signal strength a few dBs (from -85dBm to -81dBm). For me, the ROI is better than gambling to buy a new router that could cost $180 and cross your fingers and hope it is reliable.

Cons: none

Overall Review: With that said above, don't expect it perform miracle either. You may have a better chance to improve your wireless performance by tweaking your router such as using appropriate channels, WPA2/AES-Only, firmware update, limiting to N-only broadcast and/or reducing the number of wireless devices.

Works properly with Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2

Pros: This MHL Micro USB to HDMI HDTV Adapter (made by Patuoxun) is reasonably priced ($15 from Amzn) and has a smarter design than other more clunky solutions that require wires after wires, and it works properly by completely mirroring the display with Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 from T-Mobile - it should also with with other cell carriers like AT&T and Sprint.

Cons: Not really a con, there could be a minor issue if you use a cell phone case where the hole of the Micro USB port is too small therefore a bit blocked so you can't completely insert USB jack. But for me, it is a simple problem to solve by shaving off some of the plastic.

Overall Review: When using, just remember to plug the HDMI and USB cable to the proper input ports first, and then connect the Micro USB to the Galaxy S3 or Note 2.

Pros: CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB CMZ32GX3M4A1600C9 works for me on Asus Sabertooth 990FX. Prime95 64-bit torture test more than 24 hours, so far stable without errors.

Cons: None

Rosewill 2 AMP RUC-6181 works as expected

Rosewill 2 Amp 4 Port USB International Traveling Wall Charger RUC-6181 for iPhone/iPod/iPad/MP3

Pros: Some reviewers have questions or concerns whether this can charge iPad. Yes, it can. I have 3 different versions of iPad and have tested all of them and they all get charged properly. Rosewill also clearly prints the specification on the charger: 1USB=2A, 2USB=1A, 3USB=0.66A and 4USB=0.5A. All items are also packaged in a thoughtful form protected container.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: As for the longevity of the device, only time can tell.
