LG Black 8X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 6X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA 8X Blu-ray Burner WH08LS20
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Within minutes I put 5 M2TS files on the included disc no problems.I purchased this drive from a local retailer.The disc included was brand name Verbatim 6x BD-R. Its a great addition to any system

Cons: written on the box : Compatible with all BD/DVD/CD Formats.This statement is false unless by compatible they mean round and disc shaped.The drive failed to write three times on nearly identical blank blu ray discs,Verbatim 4x BD-R.Three discs, three fails.Google it, there are issues with these drives and 4x writing speeds.

Other Thoughts: Made In China like all super high quality products! The LG building in China is across the street from the factory that makes earth spin.Maybe they can manufacture my 27 dollars I wasted on the 3 Verbatim discs and send it to me.

EPSON PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 1080P 1920x1080 1800 Lumens Home Theater 3LCD Projector
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I love this projector!Crysis and other high resolution pc games looks amazing in 1080x1920 projected on a wall for a screen near 9 ft long across the top. blue ray movies 9ft long look great as well.very easy to set up and operate, youll be testing all your movies and games within minutes! i love this projector!I have unintentionally purchased 18 new blu ray movies in about two weeks!! i cant stop, i am addicted now and i really need someone to talk to,it seems epson does not care that all i do now is watch movies, and that ill never leave the house unless best buy is open.

Cons: not sure if its a con or not,fast action on screen can become guess is that a dlp projector may not experience that issue, i am a projector newb,so i do not know for be honest i think the blur may be a selling point to some,with it you actually will capture a more realistic movie theater experience,its the same kinda blur you would have on the big theater screen when camera movements speed up.yet still better looking than your local theater.

Other Thoughts: my throw distance is just @ 12 need to purchase a screen if you have a clean wall.i went all out, replacing drywall and sanding and painting for 3-5 days.the work was well worth the time once i sat down and popped in some blu can find projector screen paint to better bring out the color of the picture although it is not necessary,this projector looks great on a flat white paint alone.1/2 inch sheets of drywall 8x4ft were only about 5$ and it may save time if you have a really beat up wall.

MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs low quality at a price near premium 02/12/2010

This review is from: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Easy to overclock like other 790fx boards.With the right build, its a nice system for PC gamers.Although its still not like the Nvidia/Intel quality, the way its meant to be played!!But there is a few games out there, that will play better on the AMD ATI system.

Cons: MSI.On board realtekHD audio has its limits,after testing out several songs and speakers it becomes obvious how bad it sounds.Certain songs I played, testing the stone corridor and theater sound effects, possibly damaged my speakers.I could not have turn it off fast enough.Maybe this can be fixed by drivers but that leads me to the four lost eggs, MSI support!!!MSI auto updater is a joke.Finding and installing all the proper drivers is is a fiasco involving hours of trial and error and forum research.The packaged driver software is outdated and looks like something from windows 98.The mixed cables included are generic as well a, low resin hard rubber conduit,that seem they will be brittle in 5 years.Unrelated matter my MSI 4870X2OC was 100c+ during driver/OS installation,I had to hit it with a 400w air blower. Speed fan temp, Remote 1 is reading 56c.That seems to be another issue people are having with this board,not sure yet what the solution is, or if it will need an RMA.

Other Thoughts: Due to my experiences over the last year and a half, using MSI products, I will never buy MSI again to protect myself from future problems and time lost.Some kind of Norton security software is included that may be a bonus to some.
