This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Red) Model DTIG3/32GBZ
Pros: Decent read and write speeds and Kingston is good for their warranty (how I received this one).
Cons: Bulky (compared to previous model), light obscured, and you can't put it on a key ring/lanyard easily.
Other Thoughts: Compared to the one that failed (DTI/32GB received as a Christmas present 2010) it is slightly faster. However, they have changed the casing design and have made this product worse in terms of utility. For products that have multiple USB ports beside each other (PS3, laptops, etc.), it is now too big to have multiple products plugged in at once. I also have seen this problem with the Corsair Flash Voyagers. There was an activity light that was clearly visible, now they have that LED underneath the orange "grip" section, which is pretty much opaque. The grip itself isn't that useful and the back part of the grip has too small of an opening to put this on a key ring or lanyard. So, one step forward in performance, two steps back in utility.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Logitech X-540 70 watts 5.1 Speakers
Pros: Exceptional for the price.
Cons: Had some hum initially, but it was the source I was using (1/8 stereo jack from TV headphone out). Uneven response at very low frequencies (60 Hz and below). Wired remote and no optical inputs could be a problem for some people.
Other Thoughts: Really good computer speakers; not made for home theater. I've worked in car and home audio and I think they sound good overall after you play with your source EQ a bit. I have my PS3 passing through my computer via digital optical into a gigabyte motherboard and I control everything through realtek and dolby interfaces. Because of this, I don't care about the remote being wired. Cables are the right length for apartments dorms, etc. After switching the source, there has been no audible buzzing or humming. I have had it turned all the way up to test for distortion or amplifier hum and none is apparent. As always, great service from newegg and quick delivery.READ FULL REVIEW
