Most Favorable Review

Great Product

AFT Xm-4U 11-in-1 USB 2.0 Black & Silver Internal card reader
AFT Xm-4U 11-in-1 USB 2.0 Black & Silver Internal card reader

Pros: Fast transfer rates, easy to install if you have a USB connector on your motherboard. I like the Silver and Black faceplate. Green LED lights up when you insert a memory card or USB device. Fits great right above or below a floppy drive.

Cons: Make sure you have the right USB connector on your motherboard, most of the newer motherboard have.

Overall Review: Great product easy to install and worth the extra cash for somthing that looks like it will last!

Most Critical Review

Low Quaility High Failure Rate For Me

memorex 8.5GB 2.4X DVD+R DL 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 32025647
memorex 8.5GB 2.4X DVD+R DL 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 32025647

Pros: Some of them work and they are a good price!

Cons: I am using a NEC3550A with the latest firmware installed 1.60 The first disc I tried to burn failed. The next disc worked fine.

Overall Review: Not the best quaility but a good price.

Multitasking Heaven

Intel Core i5-750 - Core i5 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor - BX80605I5750
Intel Core i5-750 - Core i5 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor - BX80605I5750

Pros: I am encoding 3 HD videos at the same time, burning a blu ray disc at 2x, and writing this review on internet explorer w/ minimal slowdown! All on a stock cooler and not overclocked. Might take awhile to encode 3 movies all at once. But just wanted to give an idea of what this cpu can handle on a full workload.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Windows 7 Pro rates the processor at 7.3 which was the same as my AMD Phenom II X4 940, but it could not handle the multitasking this i5 can!

Imaging almost as fast as external HDD

Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB

Pros: I am continuing to use this product and being impressed by it! I turned this bad boy into an image for updating macbooks to Leopard. I compared it to a lacie external 5400RPM 2.5 hard drive w/ firewire. It only took 1 minute longer to image w/ the flash drive than the hard drive.

Cons: None thus far

Overall Review: You can use to image at the speed of an external 2.5 PATA 120GB 5400RPM HDD using firewire!

Greatest USB Drive! Good for APPLE

Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB

Pros: I use this on Mac computers all day long. I plug it in and out of more than 10x computers a day. I have had no corrupted file yet. I make sure I eject it every time. With other brand thumb drives corruption has occurred. This is the fastest flash drive I have ever used! Durable housing, not to big in size either.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Comes w/ Lanyard and USB Cover

Runs Fast w/ Heat Spreaders

PNY OPTIMA 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD2048KD2-800
PNY OPTIMA 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD2048KD2-800

Pros: Plugged in and work fast. Durable construction. Silver heat spreaders are made of high quality material. Dual Channel

Cons: With my motherboard I had to manually set the speed to 800Mhz, it did not auto detect and set the correct speed.

Overall Review: Limited Lifetime Warranty is always a must
