Anker  2nd Gen Astro E4  Black  13000 mAh  External Battery with PowerIQ Technology79AN13K2-BA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Confidence-inspiring weight, but slim, so it could fit into a pocket. I tested this by topping off my Samsung S4 for a week in the evenings and one weekend. Phone was probably never less than 50% (75%-80% more typical) each time, but the E4 still had over 50% left itself at the end of the week.
Turns on automatically, and also shuts off when the device is charged.
Has a flashlight; can never have too many of those.

Cons: The charging cord is one of those short pigtails with an adapter on it; I'm not a fan of those, as it's one more small piece to lose. You can use your original device cord though.
I've not owned it long enough to give it the full five eggs it probably deserves.

Other Thoughts: After my tests, I have no doubts this would keep my phone charged on a 3-day camping trip. At the reduced price I paid for it, it was a great deal; I'd buy another if I needed it. It's a great item for the prepper on your gift list!

ASUS DVD-Writer 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24F1ST
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked just fine to load software on a new build. Was quiet during operation; no rattles like some cheap drives have.

Cons: None found. I don't know how much use this drive will get, so I can't speak to longevity.
Does not come with any software.

Other Thoughts: Most [cheap] optical drives are indistinguishable from each other, but this one did seem a little quieter than some I've used.

ASRock B75 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Relatively sturdy. BIOS recognized my components properly. No issues with hardware at all. Might deserve five eggs, but it's already out of my hands, so I've done no long-term evaluation. It seems to have all the features needed for a basic build.
Two CPU fan headers if you need them. Back and front USB3.0.

Cons: Unless you want to install Chrome (I didn't), you can't install all the drivers all at once. Since almost all of them require a reboot, this can extend setup time. There's also some other bloat there that many people won't need.
Only one Intel SATA 6Gb/s port.

Other Thoughts: This is a decent basic board. While it would be nice for one PCI slot to be a PCIe x1 instead, that's not a big deal. I'd buy another.
