G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this RAM installed in my Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 (rev 1.0) since November 2012, and it has not given me a single error. No failed boots, no issues coming in and out of sleep mode or hibernate, no instability of any sort.

Cons: I guess a VERY small con is that the price dropped from $38 to $24 the day after it arrived, but then again, it's now $86 so I can't complain too much.

Other Thoughts: I always like to give my products plenty of time before reviewing them, because knowing it works fine for a few weeks isn't that helpful.

This RAM is on Gigabyte's approved/tested kits for my motherboard, so I expected good results and that's what I got.

ASUS GX-D1051 Power-Saving Gigabit Switch

5 out of 5 eggs Works without any issue, can't ask for more. 01/28/2014

This review is from: ASUS GX-D1051 Power-Saving Gigabit Switch

Pros: We got this switch in August of 2012 and it's still working well, 18 months later. No issues. I like that it has different indicator lights for Fast Ethernet and Gigabit.

Cons: I don't really feel the VIP port does anything. I've checked it with software that checks traffic and it didn't denote any differences, but whatever. A small quibble: I do wish it had an on/off switch. I don't like unplugging stuff to disable its power.

Other Thoughts: This may be an isolated touch, but it's interesting: a few times when the connection to the ethernet cable wasn't super snug (for whatever reason), instead of failing outright, it instead dropped the signal down to 10/100 Fast Ethernet (noted by the amber light rather than yellow). Unplugging the cable and plugging it back in brought it back up to Gigabit. I'd probably blame that on the cable (some of them are old and the latch isnt too secure) but I guess it's better that it gets a reduced speed signal rather than report no connection at all, in those situations.

Rosewill RTK-015 15 Piece Standard Computer Tool Kit

5 out of 5 eggs Good set, great price, very handy! 01/28/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RTK-015 15 Piece Standard Computer Tool Kit

Pros: Got this in July, been using it often the past 6 months. Great set of tools at a good price. Arrived undamaged and works well. No issues.

Cons: None for the value you get

Other Thoughts: They don't feel like the most sturdy tools made, but what do you expect? It was $7.99! You can get a single high quality screwdriver $6 to $10... so to get an entire set for $8? My expectations were met.
