Most Favorable Review

Overall a great chair but for its original price it should be extraordinary. (Bought on sale.)

Vertagear Racing Series P-Line PL6000 Ergonomic Racing Style Gaming Office Chair - Black/White (Rev. 2)
Vertagear Racing Series P-Line PL6000 Ergonomic Racing Style Gaming Office Chair - Black/White (Rev. 2)

Pros: - Adjustable in just about every way (albeit tilting the chair could be tricky.) - Visibly durable materials. Box weighed 65 lbs. - Firm yet comfortable. - Assembly wasn't too difficult except for the last part where you attach the top of the seat to the bottom. I recommend feeling for the holes' edges to know where you should be sliding the metals in. As for screwing it together, I recommend using a flashlight and looking for the holes to align them. - Lumbar pillow has straps! Don't be afraid to stretch them up until the shoulders of the seat (but be sure to make the tension even for all sides.) Beyond that, I would be careful. - I am 5"5' and this chair fits me well. It wasn't entirely made exclusively for tall people! - Shipping was surprisingly fast and came much sooner than noted. I used the free shipping that was supposed to be delivered in an average of 5 to 7 days. I got it in 2 days. They made sure I signed as well. I live in Henderson, NV.

Cons: - Tilting the chair is tricky. I'm still not sure if I did it right (and for the bad reviews I can see where they might've ruined the chair in this way.) There is an unlock lever on the left side that I think is labeled incorrectly (up should be lock and down is unlock.) And then you're supposed to rotate the crank while applying pressure (??) - I can see some asymmetrical stitching on the chair. It doesn't bother me but this chair really should be perfect if it was originally at $500.

Overall Review: I bought this for $300 even though Newegg advertised it as 50% off (supposed original to be $600) which was misleading. It's $440 and $380 in other places while having an original price of $500. So even though I still saved $80, it's just a little bit underwhelming after learning about some of the chair's issues.

Most likely the most beautiful RGB keyboard out there.

Corsair K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Speed, Backlit RGB LED, Gunmetal
Corsair K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry MX Speed, Backlit RGB LED, Gunmetal

Pros: - Extremely sexy. I can't stop staring at the lighting I've set. - Materials feel premium. This keyboard is heavy! - Keys are so crisp. For some reason, I actually like typing with these MX Speeds. (Despite hitting the space bar a bit too late some times.) - Volume wheel! - Corsair logo lights up! - Macro keys! - Wrist rest!

Cons: - Macros get messed up for some reason after you restart your PC the first time. The solution is to uninstall CUE then reinstall it. Extra tip: save your actions, lighting, etc. to the library before you uninstall so you don't lose them. - If you put your computer on lock, the lighting defaults to rainbow. The solution is to save your lighting as a profile in the device. - CUE in general can be improved and should be improved. - Cord is the thickest out of all my cords that's not the outlet cord.

Overall Review: - I recommend this to anyone upgrading their potato keyboard and have the money for it. I also recommend it to anyone who wants to gift their old keyboard to a friend and want to upgrade to this prematurely.

Best drone for its price! Great starter drone!

Pros: - Durable! Comes with extra blades. - Good quality video and audio for a tiny drone. - Easy to extract files. - Also comes with a micro sdhc and usb reader!

Cons: - Controls can be better. - Plugs are a bit difficult to detach. - Manual can be a bit confusing.

Overall Review: My little brother (10 years old) loves this and can operate it pretty well! It really is a great starter drone!

Fantastic fan! Quiet yet powerful.

Corsair ML120 PRO LED CO-9050041-WW 120 mm White LED 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan
Corsair ML120 PRO LED CO-9050041-WW 120 mm White LED 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan

Pros: - I have two of their AF120 fans and in comparison, this noticeably draws and blows more air just by putting my hand near it. - You can barely hear this at night. - The best part about the magnetic levitation is that you can use it as both a static and high airflow fan! So you won't require buying separate fans for separate uses if you have this. - Didn't have to break in the holes in order to mount it. - Heavier than your usual fan meaning it's sturdy!

Cons: - The fan itself has a warmer color. My white AF120s have a cooler color so with the LEDs, they look a bit blueish as opposed to this one's yellowish color. I just wished they matched up perfectly in that way. - It is $25 though. At least I got it essentially for free because of promotional Newegg giftcards.

Overall Review: I'm kind of becoming a Corsair fangirl. Even the packaging was well built for this fan.

Cheapest most renowned HDD out there.

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: - Sequential read/write: 183/165 MB/s. - Random read/write: 1355/851 IOPS. - Best version of the WD Blue with 1TB and 64MB cache. - Sturdy build. - Does not go over 45C. - Great for personal storage. Anything more, the other versions (black, green, etc.) might be better for optimal use.

Cons: - Wanna go a step further? A box would be nice. ;P

Overall Review: What can I say? The simpler the component, the less complications to worry about.

Nice fans! Not sure why most are saying it's loud...

Corsair Air Series AF120 LED 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan Twin Pack - White (CO-9050016-WLED)
Corsair Air Series AF120 LED 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan Twin Pack - White (CO-9050016-WLED)

Pros: - I've had these for a while now and, in my experience, they're not loud unless you use a 'performance' setting and/or your PC is under a lot of load. I use the H100i GTX liquid cooler as well, so my PC is quiet all around, especially since I use the 'quiet' mode on the Corsair Link. I overclocked most of my components and my temps all hover around 30C idle and only my GPU reaches a high peak of around 60C under load. The GPU fans are the only thing you could consider loud in my PC, honestly, and all my fans are from Corsair.

Cons: - One helpful tip... Break the screw holes in before you install them! You'll thank me later!
