BTW, the TDK 18$ 50pack is still alive in CompUSA. I picked up 2 -R spindles with the typical TY box.

I don’t recommend it, at least for now. Most of them barely passes BenQ Qscan at 8x, some even failed at 8x. I burned a few @BenQ 1620 @ 8x and 12x. PIF was low and looks good but PIE is a little bit too high, max 20~50 and avg 7~12.
(I know it’s more than acceptable in the absolute standard, but a little bit disappointing for TYG02 media.) Well… if you’re out of media and this is the only available TY deal, then it’s worth trying. At least it’s cheap. :slight_smile:


#3

I would also avoid the $40 deal on the 160GB HD. I don’t trust 2MB Hitachi Deathstar drives.


#4

Thanx pipemanid.I’ve been lookin to try one of these but not for $30.$10 sounds good to me. :iagree:


#5

RadioShack is supposed to have the 1GB USB Pendrive for $39.99 AR on the 12th of this month. I have been using the Sandisk 512 MB version and it works great as a boot device for Linux and also as a repair device.


#6

They claim that they have moved past this, but I do agree that 2 MB cache just doesn’t make it. My Maxtors have 16 MB and seem to be a little quicker than the 8 MB versions.


#7

I want one to use as like…extra storage or somethin’.I get tired of d’loadin’ somethin’ then havin to burn it to an RW and such(I hate usin’ up HD space).With this,I figure I just drag n drop(hopefully) and no HD space wasted.The Radio Shack one sounds like a waaay better deal but I’m gonna try this small one and see how it works.Get a feel of it as it were.:slight_smile: Keep comin’ up with those great deals pipemanid.


#8

You’ll like it. I have my Sandisk 512 MB, and two 128 MB pendrives and I don’t have to do the RW burn thing to transfer info. I do have all of my machines networked, but there are times when it’s more convenient to use the USB drive.


#9

that’s exactly why I wanna try it.No rw burns.Most of em fail anyway so I figure $10,why not.I think it’ll be a great alternative.


#10

As we used to say in Viet Nam, “I’d pay $10 to see monkeys f##K


#11

you should write a book on those old sayings from the vietnam war(Fugazi,fubar etc…),I bet there’s a million of em. :slight_smile:


#12

“16X DVD+/-R Double layer External USB 315086 $79.99 after $25, $25 MIRs”

Has anyone figured out which make and model this is?

FUBAR is older than Vietnam. My father knew about it during WWII.

Could be BenQ or BTC. IO has a habit of reboxing drives.


#15

#17

Nosmartz,
Thanks for the education. SNAFU and FUBAR just have that magic ring, fugazi is not as crisp.

#18

I agree but I definately would not want to be Fubar. :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Do they have anything for free. Technically, you can’t get anything for free without it being totally dependent on instant rebates because of the sales tax! Gratis, the people behind free ipods, now offer free LCD monitors and TVs: http://freeflatscreens.iceglow.com/ Gmail invites to everyone that signs up and trys a trial!

Does the word “TROLL” mean anything to you?
