Pros: I considered this to be an economical purchase for a relatively high performing cpu. It served the purpose intended as a desktop capable of multi-tasking (browsing/Audacity/Handbrake/AVIDemux), but I'm not a gamer. I was satisfied with the cost/performance.
Cons: The cpu died unexpectedly after 3 years of service.
Other Thoughts: From Day 1 the 8350 was paired with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, I didn't overclock it and there were never any overheating issues. After serving as my desktop PC for a year, I built a new system (I7-4790K) and re-deployed the 8350 box as my home server. Since it was hardly taxed as a file server, I started running Handbrake on it. Things were pretty hunky-dory for 2 years until one day -- poof, it went belly-up. No warning, no preceding log entry warning of it's demise, zilch.
Maybe I got my money's worth out of it since it probably averaged running Handbrake 8 hours a day for 2 years, but this it seems to me that this cpu should have lasted longer.
This review is from: PlexDisc 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 50 Packs Logo Top Disc Model 632-810
Pros: When on sale the price is as low as you'll find.
Cons: My experience has been that maybe 10% of these discs fail to burn.
Other Thoughts: I burn a lot of DVDs. These discs are virtually the only ones that result in coasters. When they fail, they are unable to actually write any data; the burner typically sounds to be throttling and eventually the burn process fails. The problem has happened on different DVD drives, so I am pretty sure it is not a hardware issue.
I have used a lot of the Plex-Disc White Inkjet discs and have had virtually no problems with them. They are also a real buy when on sale, and I would highly recommend them over the Logo Top line.
Pros: The cost was reasonable and it performs fine.
Other Thoughts: I got this to use in a Samsung phone, not that it was necessary or any more compatible than a different brand. I haven't run a benchmark on it, but it has good write speed when taking photos, as is expected with a Class 10 card.READ FULL REVIEW
