Great Hub

Manhattan 28 ports MondoHub w/ power adapter
Manhattan 28 ports MondoHub w/ power adapter

Pros: Great hub, unlike a lot of other hubs this one does not backfeed to the connection source (ran into this with a 10 port it went back). Nice heavy usb connection cable, long enough, the power supply is designed so that it does not cover the adjacent plug if installed into a UPS. The buttons are a nice feature to turn thing off and on. Using it for my gaming devices (simpit)

Cons: None

Killer NIC M1 Gaming Network Card – 10/100/1000Mbps PCI Network Adapter -- Less Game Lag, Smoother Gameplay

Pros: If it works in your system great, there have been a decent number of reviews out there to verify it works.

Cons: If it doesn't work you are out of luck at this time.

Overall Review: I've tried the card since relaease with all the patches, no joy on the system Asrock dual MB. I'm guessing the issue is chipset related, I say guessing as I never was able to nail bigfoot down as to what the issues are. Bigfoot started out with some good info on their forums, after a week or two they did a forum scrub and removed any negative issues even if they helped to troubleshot the issues ppl were having, while it is a good a idea to purge forums of destructive info they went a bit overboard. So far the card seems to be hit or miss with ppl , with a true open forum I think all the issues could be worked out quicker but this doesn't exist at this point in time.

Great Value

HEC 7106BB Black 1.0mm Thickness ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
HEC 7106BB Black 1.0mm Thickness ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great case for the price (I bought it for $39 plus shipping). No issues with mounting a MB, or power supply, as others have mentioned there are some issues with the 3.5 cage and the MB PS connection if you fill it with HD's. I overcame this issue by removing the case shielding knockouts and sliding the drives forward, had to drill 2 holes in the cage to mount one of the drives, but everything fit well with the PS cable after that.

Cons: None

Promedia Ultra Replacement

Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System
Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System

Pros: Picked these up to replace my Promedia Ultra 5.1's after I noticed a failed channel in the amp. Logitech put out a nice product with this set of speaker, good sound, looks, controls, size (speakers are a bit smaller then the Promedias). Amp has a good good sized passive heat sink (should help it to live longer then the Promedia. Newegg, had free shipping and a discounted price the day I picked them up.

Cons: None

Comments: Picked one of these up a few months back to replace my old (pre perfectly flat) 19". Once it's been warmed up, calibrated, adjusted it's beautiful. Powering it with a X800XT and playing EQ2 at 1600x1200
