I'm planning on selling my Plextor 8X4X32 burner and a Creative DVD DxR2 drive. Is anyone interested in buying them? SPAMI've had the both of them for almost a year now but they work perfectly. SPAMThey're exactly the same condition now from when I bought them. SPAMYou see, I take care of my hardware. SPAM;D SPAMI have all the original manuals, cables for them and the software too. SPAMI still have the retail box for the burner but lost the one for the DVD drive. The reason I'm selling them is that I upgraded to a Plextor 16X10X40 burner and a Pioneer 16X DVD drive. No need for two of the same thing, you know?

Hi techman007,

I've sold mine already but my 'lil bro just bought a Plextor 16X burner too. SPAMHe's going to be selling his Plextor 8X (same condition as mine) and would be willing to go for $55/obo. SPAMI don't know if he's willing to foot the shipping cost. SPAMI'll have to ask him.

I'm interested in the DVD drive. SPAMI'll make a bid based on some futher information. SPAMWhat speed drive is it? SPAMWhat exactly is included with it (ex. IDE cable, DVD player, mounting screws, drivers, etc...)? SPAMIs it guarenteed not DOA?

Any other information you have would be great.

Hi Omega,

Sorry for not replying in such a loooong time. SPAMAre you still interested in the DVD drive? SPAMIf you are, let me know and I'll post more info on it. SPAMBasically it is one of Creative's older DVD drives. SPAMIt comes with everything except mounting brackets and a decoder card. SPAMI use it with my ATI graphics card...thus, no need for a separate decoder card. SPAMI'll post more info on it if you're still interested.

I'm in the process of looking for the specs sheet I had typed up a while ago for the ad. SPAMFor some reason, the email notifications for replying to posts aren't working for me. SPAMSo, I do apologize again for the delay in getting back to you. SPAMI'll include pictures of the drive sometime tomorrow afternoon along with the specs. SPAMThanks for the interest!

Sorry again for the delay in getting back folks. SPAMUnfortunately, I had to go out of town to take care of things. SPAMSad to say, the DVD drive was sold the day I last posted something here. SPAMBesides, the drive was one of Creative's old DVD 2X drives. SPAMSo, I'm not sure if anyone would have wanted it. SPAMNonetheless, it still performed really well. SPAMJust thought I'd break the news. SPAMThanks for the interest though!

Heh, I guess that's ok. SPAMI'm probably better off without it. SPAMI'm not sure how I was going to reach an IDE cable from the correct IDE channel to where the drive was going to have to be mounted, and I'd probably have used it once or twice. SPAMI wasn't exactly looking for a top-of-the-line drive, considering I already have two other drives I can read data with, and don't have any DVD-Data discs. SPAMI also have a free-standing DVD player hooked up to my TV and Bose 5.1 surround system, so I'm covered for the acutal watching of DVD's, just not the specail Computer-only functions. SPAMI'll live. SPAMThanks for the notice.

Hulaboy...long time no talk.

Quick question...weren't you the one with the Viewsonic P810 monitor? SPAMSeems as though we talked about this a long time ago.

I finally bought a Sony CPD-G400. SPAMA short time after I bought it I noticed some screen jitter...sent it back to Sony for some warranty work. SPAMTo make a long story short...UPS crunched it. SPAMThankfully, I had insured it for $500. SPAMBut believe it or not I am still waiting for UPS to settle with me. SPAMI sent the monitor in originally back in early/mid October and I still do not have the check. SPAMI sent it through Staples and the folks there have been great to work with, but I am really beginning to wonder about UPS. SPAMI have never had anything damaged through them before...but now that I have and have seen how difficult they are to work with, I'm beginning to wonder if I should ever use them again.

Anyway, now on to what I want to ask you. SPAMIf/when UPS finally comes through with the money I am thinking about getting a flat panel monitor. SPAMI want to get a 17.4" or an 18.1" model. SPAMI got spoiled with all that screen real estate on the Sony and really do not want to take a step backward.

The question is this. SPAMShould I be looking for a flat panel or should I stay with CRT? SPAMIf I go with flat panel, are there any brands you would recommend over any other? SPAMSo far I like the looks of some of the Samsung models, but I also like the Viewsonic ones. SPAMI like the NEC thin bezel models, but they are a bit more steeply priced than I think I can afford. SPAMI am very leary of going for a flat panel over ebay, but I have looked there for some deals. SPAMAny suggestions? SPAMThanks, chaplndave

Hi chapIndave,

Yeah, it truly has been a long time. SPAMGlad to see that you're still frequenting the board. SPAMYup, I still own the Viewsonic P810 monitor. SPAMIt's a 21 incher CRT. SPAMBuying a flat panel now, huh? SPAM*sigh* I'm jealous! SPAMAnyway, if I was in your situation (getting $500 from UPS), I would definitely go with a flat panel. SPAMThere are a couple of added benefits from this. SPAMSome are that flat panels use a lot less power than the big clunky CRT tubes. SPAMVery good in this time of energy conservation. SPAMAnother one is that you'll definitely reclaim a lot more desk space. SPAMNot to mention the sharp resolution you'll get too. SPAMThe only drawback that is keeping me from buying a big flat panel is the cost.

As far as brands that I recommend, I definitely like the Samsung ones. SPAMEspecially, the model that you can take with you and hook into with RCA cables and use it as a TV as well. SPAMThey're very sharp and I LOVE the 17 inchers. SPAMViewsonics are nice and bright as well. SPAMNECs are half and half with me. SPAMSome that I've looked over are not as bright as those from Viewsonic and Samsung. SPAMThere is also a nice no name brand here at San Diego that is comparable with the Viewsonic panels that I like as well. SPAM

Ultimately, I'd opt for the Samsung models just because of their features. SPAMNext would be Viewsonic. SPAMOf course, it would be good if you can go into a store and actually see and mess around with the panels before you decide to buy any thing, you know? SPAMOnly then can you be absolutely sure if that $500 that you're about to plunk down is going to a good investment. SPAMWell, I hope that long novel helped you in your buying decision. SPAMIf you find any other comparable models that you like I'd like to know of them. SPAMHappy shopping and good luck with UPS! SPAMI'd go straight to a manager about that and write their corporate headquarters about the lack of care that they're giving you in that matter.
