This review is from: BELKIN F9D600-15-DP 15 ft. 6 Outlets Surge Suppressor
Pros: Long cable which is great if you have an outlet far from your workspace (in my case, a computer at a desk) and want something to lay along the wall.
Cons: Not really a true con, but the plug doesn't have the cord lie along the wall and instead is like a traditional plug.
Other Thoughts: Not much else to add - it's a weak power strip with a long cord and fulfills its job of adding plugs at a distance where none existed previously.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This thing is great. Bootup (from the start of when the Windows 7 slash screen first appears) to desktop (including typing my password) takes about 10 seconds.
The Intel SSD Toolbox (available through Intel's website) is unobtrusive. This drive shipped with the latest firmware (though, I did check prior to installing this drive using my old W7 installation).
120GB is enough space for the OS, some basic, small programs, Diablo 3, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Lightroom 3, I still have ~60gb free for more programs.
According to the specs (though, I have no hard evidence for it), this drive has faster write than other, similarly sized drives.
Cons: A little on the more expensive side for SSDs
Other Thoughts: Great as an OS/programs drive. Dumped my data on a traditional hard drive and pointed W7 to look for the data libraries there.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX T.B. Silence UCTB12N-R 120mm Red LED Case Fan
Pros: Very quiet. At an arm's length, it's just a gentle hum (and that could simply be the other fans in the case adding cumulatively to the noise). Seems to provide good airflow. Red LED is not in your face bright.
Cons: LED isn't very bright if that is a concern for you. Not a problem for me though.READ FULL REVIEW
