Fantom Drives GreenDrive 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" GreenDrive External Hard Drive GD1000EU

Pros: very nice price, extremely fast over eSATA, nice design

Overall Review: wish i had a couple more

Most Critical Review

wish i never bought it

OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: the price

Cons: i purchased this last year in march, it worked for a few months then fried my mobo for no apparent reason, but was not obvious the power supply had failed. i thought the board had failed and replaced it with another. hooked up another one to it and it worked for a little while then it fried that one too and the power supply failed catastrophically with smoke and melted components. i did an RMA through OCZ (their RMA process is super lame took a long time) they replaced the power supply with guess what....another power supply that appears to work, but can not supply stable voltages and it causes frequent crashes and reboots. i am going to purchase another power supply from another company because i no longer trust OCZ for power supplies.

Overall Review: if it seems too good to be true it is...this power supply is a big disappointment

very nice laptop

Pros: very good deal, nice dual core processor, nice monitor and interesting fingerprint capability

very pleased

avoid this game

Civilization IV PC Game
Civilization IV PC Game

Pros: improved graphics, now has religion which changes the game a little, it's fun (for a little bit)

Cons: this is the worst release i have ever seen in regard to bugs and the product simply not being finished. i have experienced multiple crashes and blue screens from this game. later in the game turns take 10 or 20 mins. or sometimes it just never loads, that is ridiculous. avoid this game, at least wait until they patch it (read: finish it)

Overall Review: this game has great potential and i have enjoyed all previous civs, but this one is sadly junk. after playing with this one for a month i uninstalled it and reinstalled civ3.
