Most Favorable Review

Great sound for the price

ALTEC LANSING VS2621 28 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
ALTEC LANSING VS2621 28 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: Can beat the sound of this set at this price. I tested some speakers at local store (but not this one), and this one beat all the speakers at this price range.

Cons: Not really. Don't expect this is a boom box, perfect to use in home office / normal use.

Most Critical Review

Terrible utility software

OCZ Vertex 450 Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) VTX450-25SAT3-256G
OCZ Vertex 450 Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) VTX450-25SAT3-256G

Pros: SSD is good until it fails

Cons: Had a older version (Vertex 2) but this review applies to all OCZ SSDs as the util software works for all of their drives. My drive uses a older version of firmware, and has been working for the past 2 years. About a week ago my drive starts failing and my computer randomly crashes. Try to run the util app, and it only works when 1) the drive is not the primary drive, and 2) drive must run in AHCI mode to install new firmware --- IDE is the default mode for many of the systems. My computer uses IDE mode and never bothered to change to AHCI. As my drive went down, I followed the instructions I found on the forums and it's been a nightmare. First the SSD fails much quicker in AHCI mode compares to IDE. It will fail before it even boot into Windows, and there's no exe for running in DOS mode. Now I have to create a bootable linux USB and try my luck again. Had been trying to fix this drive for 3 days.. arrrrrrgh...
