They work around 500 burns5/25/2015 7:48:15 PM

Pros: Cheap, reliable

Cons: Loud

Overall Review: They work great, if you ever wonder, last about 500 burns, but who makes that many DVD's. Go Lite-On/LG for the pros. Samsung makes great external drives for Ultrabooks.

Just called Western Digital12/12/2011 4:56:24 PM

Pros: I just called WD, I was told on the phone the 90 Day Warranty IS HONORED by them, and this is a legitimate Warranty description. I am not sure if I will have any problems, but WD's RMA System in the past has been flawless for me. But for the people on the fence because of the warranty issues, WD did tell me over the phone, from a live person, this is backed with a 90 day warranty.

Cons: I own a WD800AB HDD, and it is so loud that I cannot hear my phone ring. This is a WD800BB not AB, so I am under the impression this should be quieter.

Overall Review: for $16.99 it's worth it. And in the unlikely event is does fail, I have a 90 day warranty from WD and 60 days from Newegg, so I'm covered, and trust me, if something is wrong with a Recert. HDD, it WILL show up in the first 60 days.

Cheap, loud, works.11/16/2011 7:56:01 PM

Pros: Owned two of these. Personally, I would never use them. But I bought it because my 75 year old grandmom wanted a cheap computer to play mahjong.

Cons: Short wires, LOUD LOUD LOUD Fan. Couldn't tell you about warranty.

Overall Review: I had a second one that didn't work on one motherboard, but the one I have now I use as a system tester mostly. Go with the Antec 380 if you want something quiet and sexy.

BEST Mid-level board around for money11/16/2011 7:52:01 PM

Pros: Owned it for one month now. Stressed it with an AM3 130 Sempron and an AM2 Athlon X2 'Dual Core. Encoded 20+ HD Videos, ran for 7 days straight, 4 GB RAM, HD4650 Card installed. No problems. Hands down, the most supportive, easy to use Mobo I've owned. Better then MSI. No Asus though, but still if you grab it on sale for under $40, BUY IT.

Cons: ONLY SUPPORTS AM3 UP TO 95W. DDR2 RAM. Need a PSU with long cables to connect 4 Pin CPU Power.

Overall Review: BUY IT

Best PSU Hands Down11/16/2011 7:46:24 PM

Pros: Purchased a 550w power supply from Tiger Direct, and this is SO MUCH better then that one. Even though it's expensive, do yourself a favor and buy it. Running 1 SSD, 2 500GB Cav. Blues, 3 Multi Drives, 2 Fans 2 PCI Cards and a 4650 with an X2 with 7 Ultimate. SO QUIET. Seriously, if you remember how loud the FAT PS2 was watching DVD's, you will appreciate how quiet this it. VERY long cables for bottom mounted cases.

Cons: None that I know of. No Power cord included? lol

Overall Review: Will never buy another Diablotek again.
