This review is from: Sharp Design Crystal Charm USB-4GB
Pros: The heart itself is very cute, and the USB drive is a pretty standard quality USB drive. It does exactly the two things I wanted it to do - look nice, and store a little bit of data.
Cons: The cord supplied with the necklace is on the cheap side - one end came unglued from the clasp while I was tying it on to the charm. Reading other reviews, this is a fairly common complaint.
Other Thoughts: It's significantly heavier than I was expecting it to be! Not badly so, but there's enough heft there to be surprising if you're not ready for it.
If you decide to get this, consider ditching the supplied cord in favor of a more attractive/durable cord or chain. The black rubber is functional, but perhaps not ideal. (Although it ~is~ just stretchy enough that I'm able to remove the necklace without unclasping it to use the drive!)
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Relatively roomy inside, decent cable management, quality construction, no sharp edges, bottom-mounted PSU, quality pre-installed fans, and simple, classy looks.
Cons: No 3.5" bays...almost no one uses floppies any more, but there are still some useful peripherals that mount in a 3.5" bay.
Other Thoughts: I cannot say enough about how much I love this model. I've been using them for about a year and a half at this point for workstations at my job, and I can't go back to any lower-quality cases. They're easy to work inside of, the quality is outstanding, and a lot of thought went into the design. The Three Hundred brings in a lot of the great ideas of Antec's pricier gaming case offerings, while still staying in the realm of a "budget" case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low price, decent performance for the price, HDMI output, low-profile capable, quiet. Quality of the construction is good, as expected of Sapphire.
Cons: Only entry-level performance...you get what you're paying for.
Other Thoughts: I bought this card to go into my HTPC, so my primary concerns were low-profile form factor, HDMI out for ease of connection to the TV, and enough performance to drive HD video and emulation of my old, gradually fading consoles, and it lives up to all of these desires admirably.READ FULL REVIEW
