The SSD is a Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III for $60.
The disks are Optical Quantum 25GB 4X BD-R OQBDR04LT 25 pack that came with a combo from the egg.
The reviews are hit and miss and allowing 10% for those that have slow computers, eat Cheetos and try to burn at MAX+, I think a reasonably fast computer with clean fingers at 4-6x might work pretty good.
I could’ve gotten the drive for $60 or $71 with the disks, so I thought for $11 it would be a good chance to test the disks.
I built this computer in January of 2011 and it is not done yet. The 120GB SSD is a temporary until I get a Sandisk Extreme 240GB (I hope for $99 this BF/CM) and then the 120GB will be for Linux and the 240GB for that hog we call Windows, and the 1TB HDD will become totally for storage.

So I got a great deal on the SSD and the LG, but it is gonna cost me a diamond to boot…you married guys know what I mean.
I have been in computers since I was 15 and I’m 48, so, I study everything before I buy it. I told my wife I studied her before I married her and that cost me a diamond too! Hehehe…
No, really. Some people think a drive is a drive and they are not as you all know.
Anyway, you guys have the best info on the drive and as you can see I was here a long time ago, passing through and never posted…but I been keepin’ an eye on you kids…
I had to make two posts before it would let me see the scans of the LG so I thought I’d try to contribute something when this thing arrives even if it is negative. I look for negative and judge the source to make my decisions and you guys got nominated as a source of information…
This is where I read about the bitsetting and I really don’t know…I guess a chipset could block it…why? You never know with this copy protection and stuff and I thought maybe I missed something. I hope FW will fix this drive up to be a champ even if better ones come out later.
My DVD burner is a iHAS224 B version…Worth more now then when I bought it two years ago! Look it up if you don’t know…
And to think, I’m not a gamer or have an Xbox.
Also I chose these disks over the 25 pack Rosewill as the Rosewill had more negative reviews by quite a margin.
