LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

Pros: The Blu-ray player does work. It works just perfectly fine.

Cons: My lack of knowledge, I guess. I would have thought that Windows 7 Media Center or Windows Media Player 12 would have the capability to play Blu-ray disc. Not so. Apparently since Microsoft lost the battle of HD movie disc- they did not want to support playing the competition's format. I had to download some software to play the Blu-ray movies that I picked up at Redbox. It took me three tries to download a player that wasn't chalked full of bloatware! Took me another hour to get rid of the bloatware. Still would like to find a simple player that works with my remote that isn't full of bloatware. Any third party codecs that will work with MCE or WMP?

Other Thoughts: The Blu-ray disc look extremely sharp on my monitor. I have seen the difference in stores for years, but wasn't sure how it would look on my system. Looks great!

Pros: I needed to upgrade my old front USB ports from 2.0 to 3.0 and so did a friend of mine. I had built both of these machines recently and the Mother Boards didn't have enough 2.0 headers for all of the items I needed to hook up. By installing this part I was able to hook up the built in 2.0 memory card readers and still have the front USB ports. Great price for (2) of these items. Received within 3 days of ordering!

Cons: None

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 DirectX 11 100358L 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Still learning how to maximize my screen resolution and size. The Control Panel isn't as easy to navigate as NVidia cards.

Cons: Far Cry Promo Code doesn't work. To be honest, when you follow the instruction to download the game you enter "". Not exactly the same as Far Cry!!!

Other Thoughts: Someone from Sapphire can contact me to figure this out. I went to AMD website to file a complaint and after filling out a bunch of stuff I was suppose to click on all of the cat pictures. May have worked if you could actually see the whole picture- I could only see the top of the pictures and after 10 trys gave up. Really bad customer service if you ask me.
