Pros: Reasonable price and low battery consumption
Other Thoughts: After 18 months of usage approximately, I just changed the mouse battery because it died and they keyboard is still running with the same battery (two thumbs up for that). Also, it is very ergonomic. I love the feel to the keyboard keys and has good range (I've used it across the room without any problems)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: USB Wired Game JoyPad Controller For MICROSOFT Xbox 360 Slim PC Windows 7 Black
Other Thoughts: This is a good controller for a casual gamer. If you plan to play a lot, buy something else. Joysticks are not the best construction and will break on you. I have a Logitech controller that is much better as far as fabrication is concerned and payed just as much I paid for this one. I am not saying DO NOT BUY, because I certainly got many hours of gaming out of it. But, buy at your own risk. Again, if you are a casual gamer, this is definitely an alternative (but look into other brands before buying).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: SUPER FAST!
Other Thoughts: Purchased for the purpose of installing the OS and other applications (mostly games) where I believe speed is important. Windows boots up so fast it is absolutely ridiculous. By the time the monitor syncs up the video signal, windows is already starting. In fact, in order to get to the BIOS menu, I had to press F2 blind and wait for the monitor to sync to access the BIOS. I purchased this item on sale for $189.99 (before applying a $40.00 promo code). I think that even at regular price, it is worth buying. That said, since the OS does not need such a large drive, you may want to go smaller to save some money, which is what I was going to do in the first place. But, after considering the final price of $149.99, I could not let that deal go by. Whatever you decide to do, my recommendation is to buy a SSD for the OS, and a conventional drive (or even a hybrid) for your documents, music, etc. It is not that hard to setup Windows to use D: drive for this.READ FULL REVIEW
