Zalman VE400 Aluminum alloy, Acryl, Poly Carbonate (PC) 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Integrated encryption, virtual optical drive (ISO), and works with any standard 2.5" HDD. Really useful to avoid carrying a ton of CD/DVDs if you're a tech.

Cons: The touch-screen used on the device is really low quality, and doesn't register input very often. So if you have encryption enabled, the touch screen actually stops you from accessing your data. I often have to unplug and replug it about 10 times just to get the touch screen to works.

Other Thoughts: If you can, avoid this model. I've contacted Zalman about this problem and they never ackowledged my problem. I had the ZM-VE200 and ZM-VE300, and will probably go back to the ZM-VE300. Will probably wait for reviews before getting the ZM-VE500 once it comes out before thinking about upgrading.

CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I purchased two sets (for a total of 8 GB) when I built my current system and Windows 7 64-bit runs pretty smoothly with everything I throw at it.

Pretty useful when running several virtual machines.

Cons: I had two defective RAM modules. I got one of them RMAed, came back 1 month later yet still defective. RMAed it again (they paid the shipping this time) and I finally managed to get all my modules working.

Other Thoughts: I had some bad experiences with defective modules, but the customer support helped me out in getting working modules. If I buy RAM modules for my next build, it will definitely be from Corsair again.

I love the limited lifetime-warranty.
