Pros: The Crosshair IV Extreme is an awesome mobo that I've been using as my gaming / do everything rig for just over three years now.
All components on the mobo still function as expected.
The boards feature set, from the on-board LED's to the rear mounted BIOS reset button have all proven to be great extra functions when the situation called for their use.
If this board does ever completely fail during my use of it, I will miss it.
Cons: The Lucid Hydra CrossLinx 3 chip that was meant for multi-GPU acceleration going the way of vapor-ware has become a useless part on the board.
Thankfully the GPU's I have used on this board function just fine without using the CrossLinx 3 chip at all.
Other Thoughts: Three years later and I am still very happy with my choice in this motherboard.
There are plenty of new options for system builds today, but with 6 cores at 4.0GHz and 16GB of RAM I personally don't have an urge to upgrade.
This review is from: TCELL XS Mini Hard Disk USB 2.0 Flash Drive - 16GB - Silver
Pros: The metal casing gives this flash drive a very solid feel to it's construction.
The small size is great for my use of this drive while connected to my car stereo's rear USB port.
The appearance of looking like a mini hard disk drive is done very well.
Cons: I have not experienced a negative aspect to owning this flash drive yet.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely a novelty type item, hence its slightly higher cost then competing products of similar capacity.
The novelty aspect is done very well, and with the drive being reliable so far, the extra price seems fair.
I've always been into building my own computers, and interested in technology in general, so the novelty styling fits my personality.
I only wish they offered more capacity options.
This review is from: Syma S009 Apache 3ch RC Helicopter
Pros: This little heli is so much fun... though, I'll admit, I have not flown it much yet.
It is so much easier to control than those mosquito sized heli's.
Cons: Can't do a barrel roll. ;-)
Other Thoughts: It's just cool, and seems great for the price point that most places have this model at.
The dog likes to attack the unit just as it's lifting off the ground... I know he's just playing, but with how fast the blades turn... makes me a bit nervous. As long as he doesn't get hurt, it can be entertaining... that is until he destroys the unit like a mini Godzilla. :-o (finger's crossed)
