ASUS DVD-Writer 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24F1ST
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Got it cheap (same price as the cheapest one on newegg at the time thanks to a promo code), uses less energy than the Samsung model it's based off of thanks to the ASUS firmware

Cons: not white or silver (was part of a build that was white, but the ones that were white/silver or had a white/silver face-plate were almost as expensive as a blueray drive)

Other Thoughts: ASUS doesn't actually make the device, its a re-branded Samsung with ASUS firmware...

Rosewill RCR-IC001 40-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: cheap, high gain antennas

Cons: setup

Other Thoughts: This isn't really a pro or a con, but it was a beast to get it working and stable at about 50 feet from the router (though ~5 walls, one of which was load-bearing). If you intend to use this at long range you pretty-much a given that you have to uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in the device configuration (for windows).

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: does what ram should, and you cant beat that lifetime warranty, allows me to use the max speed (without OC) of my A10-7850K's memory controller

Cons: uses more energy than some other ram models (but this is performance ram,not power-saver)

Other Thoughts: not a problem with the ram, but i had to manually set the voltage & timings in the bios
