Sony Xperia ZL C6506 Black 4G LTE Quad-Core 1.5 GHz 16GB Unlocked Cell Phone
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The Swiss army knife of phones. Beautiful display. Comfortable to hold. Fast quad core processor. 4.4.2 Kit Kat.

Cons: Weird battery issue out of the box (resolved). Thumbprint magnet.

Other Thoughts: Really nice phone that supports pretty much any GSM network out of the box including LTE. The setup to get on T-Mobiles network took less than 5 minutes.

Initially the phone had 4.2.1 and I was worried when I saw the battery life sink like a stone with very little use.

However it was less than a few hours of use that I was notified of a new system update by Sony that took the phone to 4.4.2 Kit Kat. After the update, the battery life seemed to more than double and now I can easily use the phone all day with about a 3rd battery left by the late evening.

The phone has an almost edge to edge display which is amazing and in my personal opinion it's way more comfortable to hold and use than the Z, though it's not waterproof which may be an issue to some.

Sony is a bit of a dark horse in the phone arena but look at the reviews out there and you'll see they hold their own easily against the big names like Samsung and Apple in all areas. If you are shopping for a top tier phone with solid build quality, performance and isn't locked into one network, give this phone a once over. You won't be disappointed.

CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Enormous. Fits everything and then some. Good quality. Well thought out. Looks Great.

Cons: Heavy. Wrong Instruction manual. X-Dock missing cables.

Other Thoughts: First. I did not buy this from NE so the loss of the egg is nothing to do with them. Read on.

This is a great case for anyone who doesn't want any compromise about the size of their build because this thing is enormous. The build quality is amazing but along with that thick sheet metal comes weight which for some may be daunting. I had zero problems building my rig with the exception of turning the hard drive bays 90 degrees..my low IQ was showing when I couldn't figure out how to re-install the bays but then when I went to refer to the manual I found I was looking at a HAF 932 document. Were those wacky workers in China joking around by putting the wrong manual in the case? So with no access to the internet because my build was in pieces to download the right manual, it became a guessing game on how to connect cables and get the drive bays right. For that an egg is lost. Once put together, the rig looked awesome. The only other gripe I have is I would have gladly paid an additional $10 to have the X Dock pre-cabled. Love the case though. Recommended.

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 355 MB/s - 7.2ms in RAID 0 on a 990FX MB. Quiet.

Cons: I don't have any money left.

Other Thoughts: I found these as re-branded OEM's, brand new for $80.00 each and couldn't resist the purchase. They are much faster than my previous single WD 1TB Black Drive which I'm going to use now as a backup drive in case the RAID fails.
