Rosewill RCR-IM5001 - 75-in-1 Internal Card Reader Hub - 3 x USB 2.0 Ports / eSATA Port / Extra Silver Face Plate / Molex Power Cable - Fits 3.5” Drive Slot
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, does what it's designed to do, lots of ports and options

Cons: Sits extremely far back, microSD slot is extremely deep in, slow, advertised as a 3.5" drive bay but is actually 2.5"

Other Thoughts: On the whole, it seems to me that almost all all-in-one card readers are pretty poorly designed. This one is pretty cheap and has prettymuch every slot you could reasonably need, but it sits very far back in the drive bay (and since my machine doesn't have any external-facing 2.5" drive bays, I had to buy an adapter and fight with both for a while to make it even usable, not to mention the horrible open space around it), the card readers sit very deep in the reader itself, making cards very hard to remove (when putting in a microSD card, I actually had to remove the faceplate and THEN use a tool to remove the card), and its read/write speed is somewhat slow.
If you need a card reader for intermittent use (such as for microSD for your phone) and you don't want to bother with a USB adapter you might lose, this is probably among your best bets. But be warned - I still don't recommend it.

ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Powerful Cooling Performance CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Absolutely fantastic head induction, quiet fan

Cons: Bulky

Other Thoughts: Utterly fantastic cooler, but be careful with your dimensions. Tends to block ports on some motherboards (mine in particular blocks some memory slots from use, but I didn't have enough that the slot it blocks was necessary)

iLuv - Headphone iPod / iPhone Remote Adapter (iEA15)

This review is from: iLuv - Headphone iPod / iPhone Remote Adapter (iEA15)

Pros: Allows you to use your own headphones instead of the awful Apple headphones, as well as keeping the controls near the iPod where they SHOULD be.

Cons: I'm not a particularly active person, so there is virtually no risk of sweat damage... Yet, roughly 3 weeks after purchasing this adapter, it shorted out, allowing me to only listen through one earphone. A few hours later, it shorted out completely, rendering it useless.
