Pros: They're cheap, they work. That's all you need, really. And they look cool.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy into those expensive "high speed" RAM offerings. Stick to the cheap mainstream (in this case, DDR3-1600) and you won't go wrong. You'll hardly if ever see a performance increase with the aforementioned options. This has always held true for RAM.

For multiple tab web browsing, and general multitasking such as music, instant messaging and the usual stuff one does with their PC (including gaming), I'd tend to recommend installing at least 8GB for future proofing. Therefor, you may want to look at the 2 x 4GB offerings.

Pros: Had this one for over a year now and it still works good, but I have to admit I barely use it anymore. When I got it I was burning DVD movies/tv and such, and just recently I ripped a CD, but it doesn't get much use anymore.

It's pretty darn cheap, it's fast, it's quiet (when you want it to be, but it can ramp up to blazing RPMs if you tell it to), and it works reliably. Not much more one can say about a simple optical drive. They've been around for ages and people are losing interest in them.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Like the sound card, people just don't care or aren't using optical drives anymore. Who needs 700MB/4.7GB of storage for a CD or DVD, respectively, when you can have many times that amount on a tiny USB thumb drive that will last longer anyway.

If you're still buying CDs, rather than high quality MP3s or lossless audio such as FLAC for use in your portable media player, or if you rip your own music discs, or if you'd rather install software by disc than download instantly online, then you may have use for one of these. They're kinda entering a niche market in my opinion.

Pros: It works. Not much more to say.

Cons: Expensive for being a single, common cable. Knocked some stars off for this reason alone.
