Verbatim 4x BDXL 100GB Blank Media

Verbatim 4x BDXL 100GB Blank Media

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I received my very first BDXL media. These are way more expensive than BD-R and about twice the cost of BD-R DL media. For my first BDXL recordable media, I decided to get the Verbatim 10-pack spindle. These seem to be one of the lowest-priced media when compared to 3-packs or 5-packs variants of other manufacturers. These BDXL discs are rated at 4x, but my LG WH14NS40 crossflashed to the WH16NS60 firmware detects them as having a…

Upgrading the Lenovo Y720 RAM to 64GB

Hi everyone, I’ve recently upgraded my Lenovo Y720 RAM to 64GB. This laptop came with 16GB initially, but it’s very easy to upgrade it. I was browsing Amazon and found that the Samsung 32GB DDR4 SODIMM modules were the cheapest available, so I went ahead and ordered 2 of them. Upgrading it was as easy as removing the back cover: We can see the 2x 8GB RAM modules installed in the laptop here: And here they are removed: The part…

Ritek Mini CD-R: Part 2

Ritek Mini CD-R: Part 2

Hi everyone, Today, I burned a few more Ritek Mini CD-R media, where I found out they have a surface issue: I didn’t realized this, but it seems to be a plant manufacture problem. I opened another of the 100-pack I have and it have the same problem. The problem is that the data was burning fine, with no errors on my Lite-On iHAS524, but it failed to verify on some parts of the disk, as it was approaching the…

Ritek Mini CD-R Photos and Quality Tests

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I received some Pocket/Mini CD-R I purchased on eBay, which were being sold for cheap due to them not being branded or not having their specs listed. The seller was selling 3 packs of 100 unbranded silver surface Mini CD-R, and since the price was lower compared to other branded media, I decided to buy all 3. The discs were wrapped with no spindle. The discs have a silver surface: Here we can see a single CD-R:…

The M Way USB External DVD Drive

The M Way USB External DVD Drive

Hi everyone, In this post, I’ll show you the M Way USB External DVD Drive. This is a slim External CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo drive, which is quite interesting, given that most units today are DVD writers. This one just reads and writes CD-R/RW, and reads DVD’s, but can’t write them. The brand is unknown, too, but it was on sale a few days ago and decided to get one, just to have just in case one of my other drives goes…
