This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 W0379RU 500W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
Pros: Worked GREAT! Super quiet, easy to manage cables for a non modular. Plenty of connectors for everything (mobo, HD4870, Sata, molex). I really like the fan on the bottom as it was bottom mounted in my case to draw fresh air from underneath and blow out the back instead of heating up the rest of the case.
Cons: Only con is that it failed 362 days after I bought it, and unfortunately I didn't buy it from the egg and cannot find the receipt to RMA :(
However, I have other Thermaltake products in my build and have used them in other builds with great success. This was the only failure I've had of a TT part.
I will buy again.
Other Thoughts: Unsure why so many have had 0 day issues. This unit has been rock solid until today. I leave my machine on 24/7 for weeks at a time. I have been known to do extended gaming as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Probably one of the best "budget" cards available. It has taken everything I've thrown at it with no problems. Sure it could run some games better, but for the price its hard to beat. I couldn't afford the 4850 when I bought this and after 8 months I really haven't found a solid reason to change up. I can't "max" out crysis, but I can play Crysis Warhead with decent detail and excellent framerates. I'm considering buying one more since the price has dropped some for Crossfire.
Cons: I didn't buy from the 'Egg and paid way too much.
Other Thoughts: At first I was unsure about the small heatsink / fan and basic reference design, but it performs very well, is very quiet, and no heat issues whatsoever.

This review is from: BELKIN F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router 802.11g
Pros: 2 years of everyday use, still running strong. Its done everything I've asked it to. Easy setup and maintenance.
Cons: Not gigabit on the wired side??? When I go to web based setup and type my admin password, I have to click the button with the mouse, If I press enter, it just clears the text field and reloads the password page. Slightly annoying.
Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was the cheapest wireless router I could find. I actually was buying it for a friend and bought a 2nd one for me. Both are still going strong. I don't have anymore wireless devices but I am using 3 of the 4 wired ports and haven't had any problems at all. The web based setup seems a little basic, but with some poking and prodding you'll find the more advanced stuff.READ FULL REVIEW
