Pioneer Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 10X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer BDR-207DBKS

Pros: I got this drive on sale along with a 25pk of Optical Quantum Blank Blu-ray discs...all for $116 shipped. My Blu Ray player is a PS3 Slim which I've heard is picky about playing certain BD-R's. With this drive and those discs...I have made perfect 1for1 backups and even split movies on 50GB discs ...to 2 BD-R's and ALL play perfectly on the PS3! I use AnyDVD then ImgBurn for 25gb and below stuff and to split...DVDFab 8 then ImgBurn to make 2 discs . This burner worked right out of the box no problems, it's best at 2x and 4x... no coasters so far. I have Vista and dual 2.5ghz with 4GB ram.

Cons: none.... I wish I had bought it sooner!!

Works great!!

Pros: Everything, price, size...etc Working fine on Windows 7 64bit

Cons: install can be confusing if you don't know what you are doing, or common sense...is NOT so common with you!

Overall Review: Ok for those that may be having trouble, just for kicks , here's what I did: Install drivers from disc (while making sure connected to internet just in case), gave permissions to my firewall to "allow" everything during install. After install a window auto opens, just allow all the file types you wish to share and make sure "music" is checked, close it. now you should see in taskbar near the clock a bluetooth icon, right click, go to settings...click first 4 boxes leave last one unchecked in the options tab, go to "share" tab check first box (and ones at bottom if you have printer with BT capabilities. Close entire window, right click on your computer's volume icon, go to "mixer" or master volume control center/screen or whatever your says, In mixer you see an Icon of a speaker with a drop down arrow right underneath it, click it, change from speaker to bluetooth headset. Turn on your headphones to "find me" mode, go back to that bluetooth icon in your taskbar, right click, press "find device" ...your device should now be paired. Now, if you have a BT receiver dongle that has a 3.5mm "out" jack and/or RCA out jacks, connect it to something with Auxiliary "in" or RCA in and you can send stuff from your PC to the "in" device, like car stereo, home audio receiver, TV, iHOME...Mickey Mouse alarm clock radio....whatever your heart desires. I picked up one of these BT receiver dongles for like $20 shipped. It's a TAO BTI-005 or something like that. They sell the exact same one here and a bunch of other places too. Its hooked up to my older Technics Receiver with 500watt amps, let me tell you that dongle sends to my stereo exactly the quality it receives, it fuels the four 12" subs, 7 Surround speakers, 2 mid's and 2 tweeters...very nicely ...with earth shattering sound! and clarity!

Pros: From the moment you get the box, you know you're in for something special. It's like the Beats, very high quality like a little suitcase and treasure box all in one..very nice. The headphones headphones themselves are ridiculous ! The Bass is crazy!! The depth and richness is truly amazing. I use these with my ASUS TF300T tablet , Galaxy S2 Epic 4G phone, and Toshiba Laptop... make sure that whatever player you use to play your music on your devices, that the player has an equalizer....trust me, you're gonna need it! You can customize the music to sound like studio quality in your head. Just make sure the source music is equally of good quality so you can get max benefit. Honestly , these are the best headphones I have ever owned and I'm 40yrs old so I 've owned alot. Im 5'11" 200LBS and these fit my head just fine. Comfy too. Very good noise cancellation....solid range too.

Cons: I can't find anything, except the price seems to be going up everywhere on these things. Get them before it goes up again!!

Beats By ...Who?? Listen to my "Dre-Slayers" !!

Oh and to top it all off...they are bluetooth! and you can answer calls and talk through them too....Although mic could use a bit more fine tunning. Seriously.... find a good deal on these , in whatever color you prefer and get them ASAP before price goes up!! Im 5'11" 200LBS and these fit my head just fine. Comfy too. Very good noise cancellation...

Cons: None, really.

Overall Review: If Dre's name is worth 2 to 5 times more $$$ to you then you won't be happy these. But if you want what others on other sites have called "The Dre Killers" ...then these are right up your alley. Get em !

Good for the money, but not for audiophiles

Pros: price, quality and looks. Great for calls, solid range. you can hear the other person clearly and they can hear you, almost as good as talking right into phone. Music sounds ok. Pair it up with your phone, then use your tablet to connect with your phone using something like "Tablet Talk" app & you can make calls, answer, text ...etc from tablet without ever touching your phone.

Cons: Bass is very weak, not very "rich" sounding, can hang up and answer calls through button on head set, can even redial the last # and of course the volume. Combine this with

Overall Review: I gave these 5 stars because they're good for the money, if you just want to talk and are like me that don't really like the single ear piece thingy, then when you're done you can listen to music without having to switch headsets, then these work. The only problem is that if you're an audiophile, these won't work for you. they just don't have enough bass, depth or richness. I bought these somewhere else for a few bucks cheaper than here. They're better than most ear buds that's for sure. I use these on my ASUS TF300T and Galaxy S2 Epic 4G. I use Tablet Talk to pair up phone and tablet. Then I pair these headphones with the phone, setting it up like that will allow you to be anywhere in bluetooth range from your phone and your tablet will ring and receive your text. You can then call, answer from tablet and use the headset to talk through! works flawlessly. So if you're looking for high quality audio, these are not for you. For great sounding calls and "ok" music then these for the $$ are a good deal.

Great discs for cheap...even on PS3!

Pros: My Blu Ray player is a PS3 Slim which I've heard is picky about playing certain BD-R's. With my Pioneer BDR-2070DBKS drive and these discs...I have made perfect 1for1 backups (movies only of course) and even split movies on 50GB discs ...to 2 BD-R's and ALL play perfectly on the PS3! I use AnyDVD then ImgBurn for 25gb and below stuff and to split...DVDFab 8 then ImgBurn to make 2 discs. No coasters so far. Quality is perfect! I have Vista and dual 2.5ghz with 4GB ram. I have 2 computers and this one has very minimal stuff installed, hardly nothing running in the background or on start up.

Cons: NONE... I'm no expert by a long shot and I can't understand others who have had problems with these discs and/or getting things to play on ps3 or other players successfully. I followed instructions and everything has been fine.
