G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Same tight timing as the 1Gb/DIMM memory it replaced.
Good price for “old” RAM.
Mfg. monitors the review thread.
Plenty of surface area on the heat sinks.
Overclocks well right out of the gate.
Sets to 4-4-4-12 without any problems.

Cons: No real cons when it comes to performance, stability or durability.

Other Thoughts: I have never had a problem with Gskill memory up until this last batch; Nov 2012.
I purchased 8gigs (2 pkgs) of this and had issues with both sets. One pair couldn't get through POST and the second died after about 5 boots while I tried to track down the exact problems. Luck of the draw I guess; it happens with all components. RMA with Newegg was a breeze; customer service is a big part of how they have earned my business over the years.
4-4-4-12, huh? I don’t know how long I had the timing set wrong but I did (accidentally) discover that this will run at even tighter timings. This would not have happened had used the number pad instead of the QWERTY. Gotta love that Intel P-35!

IOGEAR GCS22u 2-Port USB KVM Switch w/built-in cables
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Never knew what I was missing 02/27/2014

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS22u 2-Port USB KVM Switch w/built-in cables

Pros: Plug and Play with no hassles or drivers; really.(see other thoughts)
Left/Right LED indicator on switch.
Compact, simple and easy to use single button remote with non skid bottom. The remote allows me to push all of the cables and clutter to the back of the bench.
Cable length allows for a comfortable work area between towers.
USB connectors are marked for keyboard/mouse so I don't get stupid.
It has shown to be compatible with Windows '98 through 7; haven't tried it on 8.

Cons: I'm just a little more lazy now.

Other Thoughts: With Win.'98 I had to place ps2 adapters on the ends to boot with out errors the first time. '98 found the right driver when I switched back to USB.
I did have '98 drop the connection once but it may have been something that I did; an earlier reviewer solved something similar.
The switch performs flawlessly with XP, Vista and 7; more than I can say for the operator at times.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Synapse Cache SYN-25SAT3-64G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 32 Gigs of SSD cache really speeds up an old WD Black!
Product exactly as described IF you read the description.
Adding this to my wifes system has given it the same feel as mine that really has an SSD.
Includes 2.5 to 3.5 adapter - see other thoughts.
Current drivers. All required screws included.

Cons: Risk of corrupting OS. The fix / workaround is not in the instructions.

Other Thoughts: Back up your data!

Five eggs if not for corrupting my OS. I was able to retrieve all of the data from another computer in the Home Group.

The solution; and step missing in the instructions: Secure erase.

Here is how you want to install this.

BEFORE mounting drive in the adapter copy the Dataplex key code from bottom of drive.

Place drive in adapter and then in HDD tray.

Download OCZ toolbox.

Plug in drive

Using the toolbox perform a SECURE ERASE and then enable TRIM.

Download and install Dataplex software.

Following the Dataplex prompts mount the Synapse in the system HDD.

Follow any remaining instructions.

Click on Dataplex from "programs" to verify drive is working.

My only issue was a result of not doing a secure erase. After I followed the steps listed above I have not had any problems or complaints. All said and done I am happy with the drive and would buy another if I had the need.

Note; This drive will show up in BIOS during boot but will not be seen by Win7.

With the prices for 240 Gb SSDs coming down this will become less of cost effective option; even at $40.
