This review is from: OtterBox Commuter Night Sky Solid Case For Samsung Galaxy S III 77-21390
Pros: Looks great, protects the phone
Cons: It is hard to get on and off, but not really a problem. I always manage to accidentally turn my phone off on the rare occasion I take it out of the case. I've had mine for a little under a year, and I drop my phone on hard surfaces pretty regularly and it's now starting to crack, so not excited about that. But, I'll admit, I'm a little harder on mine than most.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It has a lot of room for air to circulate. The side duct is a definite plus, and the included filters for the front vents are helpful in keeping some of the dust out.
Cons: Dust gets in this thing quicker than I would like. Granted, I keep the box in dusty and cramped places, but all of the vents mean that my components regularly get covered in dust. I'm sure that this has resulted in decreasing performance or overheating components at times over the years I've had it (bought it in 2009). The power button has long since fallen off, and I now have to press the little prong that it's supposed to attach to in order to start it up. The reset button no longer works, but my motherboard's acting up so that could be the culprit.
Other Thoughts: You could do worse, but you could do better. I'm thinking of replacing my motherboard/CPU, and I'll be buying a new tower when I do it. That should tell you everything you need to know.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTI/8GB
Pros: It's big drive, has a cap, has a light, and does everything you would expect
Cons: It's really slow - 5mb/s write in my little test of copying a 1GB file. It's not really useful if you're planning to run portable apps off of it - I would go with a USB 2.0 drive if you're looking for that functionality or if you're in a hurry.
Other Thoughts: Worth the price, but barely. I wouldn't call this an excellent deal, just a good one.READ FULL REVIEW
