Pros: I recently converted to mechanical keyboards and do not foresee going back. I would argue that this is one of the best "starter boards" since the price is fairly low (relative) and it has the main things needed. Granted, it is "missing" some of the bells and whistles (see CONS) of others, I don't anticipate replacing it anytime.
I really enjoy the brown switches in this board as it provides some decent tactile feedback with a lower amount of the audible tone. Note, that doesn't mean this is at all "silent" nor does it really fall under the "stealth" type of name - that is strictly relative to other Cherry MX switches.
* Ten keyless (relative pro)
* Cherry Browns (relative pro)
* Removable USB (portable)
* Style (relative pro)
* No printing/etching on the top of keys
* Multimedia keys (F1-F12 with the FN key, on MAC the PS, SCLK and PA/BR also do things)
Cons: Personally, I don't have a need for many "bells and whistles" nor do I expect them at this price. That being said, they could fall in this category:
* No Backlighting
* No Dips (if you don't move a keyboard between computers much nor reformat constantly, this doesn't really matter)
* On MAC (may be Apple's fault) - often after resuming from sleep the keyboard doesn't enumerate and register keystrokes.
Pros: So far a great card, it was inexpensive (39.99) when I needed a new card for my HTPC. A few issues with Linux drivers, but great processing video and audio. Also from a great company.
Cons: None to date.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great SSD for the price. You can definitely get better SSD's, but not really in the price range.
+Price/Performance Ratio is favorable
Cons: -Slower than the Vertex3 (which is a given)
Other Thoughts: It recently survived my laptop falling off a car at 85mph on the highway. Very glad I had an SSD in during that fiasco.READ FULL REVIEW
