Pioneer DVR-S19LBK 24x Internal DVDRW Retail SATA

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the box., 25 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This drive is reliable and ideal for as a cheap replacement. Some have commented on noise but it is cheap (but reliable).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Avery products, 20 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great software for Avery products, obviously this product does not cater for any other label manufacturer's labels. Each label type has a master to which you can add text, graphics, bar codes to form variations of the master (in the same file). So, for instance, you can design a CD label containing graphics and/or text that will be common to all of your CDs (for a CD set for instance) and then create many variations of the CD using the master as the shared design. Each variation has its own tab showing the master label (as one layer).

I have one gripe with this product; it does not allow any adjustment of the printed image. This is fine if your printer has great alignment but mine does not so I use Acoustica CD label software for my CD labels but DesignPro for my other labels.

4.0 out of 5 stars you pay for quality, 20 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very expensive full faced labels. However the labels do stick very well to any disk surface and with the aid of the Avery afterburner applicator the process is very quick and simple; the labels have temporary holding tabs and the applicator has grips for these holding tabs. The applicator applies the labels gradually so no air bubbles appear as the applicator bends to push the label from the center outwards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value., 20 July 2009

This review is from: Projet Gloss CD Labels (50 Labels)
I found these labels to be of good quality. They stick very well to normal mirror like disk surfaces but with disks that have a grey semi-matt finish the labels take some time to stick - but once stuck they stay stuck. All in all these labels are very good value if you need photo like finish compared to the much more expensive avery C9660 full faced labels.


Adaptec ABM 500 - Memory backup battery - 1 x
Adaptec ABM 500 - Memory backup battery - 1 x

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple installation but very expensive., 20 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One expensive battery when you consider it is just a PDA battery. The battery has a mounting plate attached to it (not seen on the product image) and is attached by using the two board mounting holes on the controller (mine being a Adaptec 2820SA). There is some extra time needed during the controller's boot up process to check the battery status.

Now that I have a battery backup and have enabled the controller's write-back mode the I/O speed is a lot faster and the disks are a lot less busy. Good value if you have been suffering from array rebuild nightmares.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but dim and a little slow, 18 Nov 2004
Pros: Nice looking, cables are tidy, simple connections using USB. Saves a lot of desk space.
Cons: Only supports standard MS mouse and keyboard drivers functions and I think one Belkin mouse. If you want to use fast access keys on your keyboard you won't be able to, it will not recognise them, same applies to using a fancy mouse.
USB feature: USB for connecting PCs using a single USB cable - the keyboard and mouse is limited to PS2 sockets only. This is great for saving space on cables, however it is a bit slow switching between devices - you have to wait a few seconds before the you can use your input devices.
