Most Favorable Review

Great for PS3

Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST9160821AS 160GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST9160821AS 160GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works great in PS3, Quiet, easy to install, quick load times...

Cons: None to date

Overall Review: Swapped out my 60 GB in my PS3 for this drive. It's just as good, if not better than the original Seagate drive installed in the PS3. It was an easy install... So far I'm very pleased with this drive, and glad I decided to upgrade my PS3 now instead of later....

Solid Unit

Clarion 2-DIN DVD Multimedia Station With 6.5" Touch Panel Control
Clarion 2-DIN DVD Multimedia Station With 6.5" Touch Panel Control

Pros: Bluetooth built right in & ready to handle calls & synch phone books. Easy Straightforward GUI/Menu, plentiful Options, solid sound quality, dvd playback is great, has the Ability to Upgrade to a GPS unit for a very reasonable price, Media Manager to dl music...

Cons: Lacking in Screens, Screensavers & no option I'm aware for custom screens. It does have Slightly Slow start up and load times but they're aren't ridiculously long. Though I believe all this is a common complaint with all decks like this.

Overall Review: All around this is a nice solid unit. I'm more than satisfied with it. It's options are excellent, interface is not only user friendly but perfectly easy to access, browse and configure. The menu is perfect. From top to bottom this is just a spectacular Double Din unit that leaves only trivial things for improvement. All around there's nothing major to complain about and only minor gripes I'd like to see built into all units like this. Like more screens, screen savers, customized screens, LED color options, quicker start and load times etc.

Solid despite flaws

HTC Touch DIAMOND 3G Sprint Authorized Cell Phones
HTC Touch DIAMOND 3G Sprint Authorized Cell Phones

Pros: -The touchflow interface is pretty fluid. It can be a bit laggy at times but overall it has solid performance... -The phone itself and interface look incredibly sharp. -There's a lot of free themes available online. Homebrew and even some other carriers themes. -3.2 mega pixel camera takes great shots. Also has a panoramic feature for taking large photos (easy to use) -Speakers and system volume are excellent. -Music player is really good. -Free apps and themes available online. Like Gsen which unlocks the accelerometer

Cons: -Battery life is pretty weak. -The accelerometer is locked & only works w/ certain programs. Though as stated in the Pros there is an app called Gsen that unlocks it. A bit clunky at times but it allows you to tilt the phone for easier texting/typing. It works... -The touch screen is a little to small. Though the key recognition is usually good enough to recognize what keys I hit, and if all else fails there is a stylus... -Weather has preset locations only. So unless you live in a major city the weather feature is useless. Should have a zip code entry to get YOUR weather... -No 3.5mm headphone jack -WinMo -Power button on top. No need for it. The round button should be used to turn the screen/phone on/off...

Overall Review: Overall the Diamond has grown on me to become a very strong device. It functions as a solid phone, browser, messenger, and everything else it should be. Free down loadable themes provide a fresh look while some of the apps improve functionality. Overall it's a great device but the power button should be removed, the accelerometer should be unlocked (which as stated, you can do w/ a free app download), the weather tab should provide a zip code feature, and the battery life needs to be improved. Very few complaints so far.

Pros: Great Speeds, writes great, reads great... All around a solid & reliable unit....

Cons: Very Loud while reading/writing at times....

Overall Review: Only a couple coasters (bad discs) while writing @ 20x w/ 16x rated Sony AccuCore dvds. At 8x no coasters. Despite the noise this drive is a top notch performer. I'll deal w/ the loud noise for such a reliable drive. Top of the line product....

Solid Set

SAMSUNG 2253BW Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1
SAMSUNG 2253BW Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1

Pros: 8,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio & Super Bright back light create a beautiful picture. Pretty much the same exact thing as my Sony 40" XBR3 from top to bottom when it comes to quality, clarity, picture and performance. Except @ a fraction of the price; less than 1/8. A very solid LCD monitor from Samsung...

Cons: There are some clouding issues w/ my set, and I'd imagine this is a problem w/ all these sets. This happens from the super bright back light. When the screen is black there is some noticeable white on the top and bottom of the screen. Easily a trivial problem if you can overlook it, and a small price to pay for such a brilliant picture/bright back light.

Overall Review: First thing I did was set the brightness to 75 instead of the factory default of 100 which imo is too bright... With the $20 rebate this is perhaps the best monitor you can find for $250. Well, actually the new touch of color 19" for $260 and a 18k or 20k Dynamic Contrast Ratio probably would be, but this is still a top of line quality, high performance monitor...

Great Value Ram

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Desktop Memory Model KVR533D2N4/1G

Pros: Excellent Price, Excellent Ram, Easy to install. Several people at work also have this RAM and they all love it; no problems...

Cons: Currently None

Overall Review: Upgrade for Dell Dimension 8400. Solid add on. Probably go ahead and upgrade w/ 2 more sticks in the future. Currently running these two 1 GB sticks w/ the pair of factory 256 MB Kingston sticks that came w/ my PC... At $20 a stick there's no reason not to upgrade.
