GOOD MP3 PLAYER

PENGO Blue 512MB MP3 Player 03512BLUE
PENGO Blue 512MB MP3 Player 03512BLUE

Pros: SMALL. LIGHT WEIGHT. GOOD SOUND.

Cons: NONE. (SEE OTHER THOUGHTS)

Overall Review: ONE THING THAT SHOULDN'T BE CONSIDERED A CON THOUGH, IS THAT IT'S COMPLICATED TO OPERATE THE FIRST TIME. YOU CAN'T GIVE THIS TO A 12 YEAR OLD AND EXPECT HE OR SHE TO START USING IT ON THEIR OWN BECAUSE YOU REALLY HAVE TO READ THE MANUAL AND UNDERSTAND IT. THAT'S NOT THE PRODUCTS FAULT THOUGH. THE MANUAL IS THERE. IT'S JUST NOT SOMETHING YOU OPEN AND START USING WITHOUT SPENDING A FEW MINUTES ON THE MANUAL.

GOOD ENCLOSURE

Thermaltake A2395 Aluminum 3.5" IDE / SATA ESATA + USB2.0 External Enclosure
Thermaltake A2395 Aluminum 3.5" IDE / SATA ESATA + USB2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: IT COMES WITH ALL CABLES NEEDED. COMES WITH SCREWDRIVER. YOU CAN USE PATA OR SATA DRIVES. SUPPORTS 1000GB DRIVES. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY TOOLS OR CABLES AT HOME, YOU'LL STILL BE ABLE TO OPEN THE BOX PUT THE DRIVE IN THE ENCLOSURE AND START USING IT RIGHT AWAY. I BOUGHT 2. I USE THEM WITH 500GB SAMSUNG DRIVES.

Cons: NONE. (SEE OTHER THOUGHTS)

Overall Review: THERE IS ONE THING THAT I DON'T THINK SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A CON: AFTER YOU PUT EVERY THING TOGETHER, FORMAT THE DRIVE, AND YOU'RE READY TO USE IT, WHEN YOU CONNECT IT TO THE USB PORT, IT TAKES ABOUT 15 TO 20 SECONDS FOR IT TO BE SEEN BY WINDOWS. I HAVE OTHER ENCLOSURES, BUT, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO ANY OF THEM, AS SOON AS I PLUG THE OTHER ONES IN, I HEAR THE SOUND AND IT STARTS GOING. AND I DON'T THINK IT'S A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT BECAUSE I BOUGHT 2 OF THESE AND THEY BOTH REACT THE SAME.

GOOD CARD

SAPPHIRE Radeon X1300 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card 100142L
SAPPHIRE Radeon X1300 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card 100142L

Pros: IT WORKS. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR TO RATE THIS PRODUCT. (SEE OTHER THOUGHTS)

Cons: NONE.

Overall Review: THIS IS MY FIRST VIDEO CARD. I HAVE BUILT 10 SYSTEMS BY NOW, ALL FOR MY COMPANY. I ALWAYS WENT FOR THE MOTHERBOARD WITH ONBOARD VIDEO TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, THERE IS NOT A SINGLE NOTICEBLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE IMAGE I GET WITH THIS 512MB AND THE OTHER 32MB ONBOARD ONES. I AM NOT A GAMER, THAT COULD BE THE REASON. I ONLY USE MY PCS TO GO ONLINE AND OFFICE WORK.

GOOD MEMORY

OCZ Value Series 1GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Desktop Memory Model OCZ26671024V
OCZ Value Series 1GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Desktop Memory Model OCZ26671024V

Pros: FAST MEMORY. ECS PF5 EXTREME (1.0), PENTIUM 4 531, 2GB OCZ, 500GB HITACHI DESKSTAR, SAMSUNG 18X LIGHTSCRIBE DVD+-

Cons: NONE.

Overall Review: IT WOULD ONLY READ AS DDR2 533MHZ WHEN I HOOKED IT UP. THEN I WENT INTO BIOS AND CHANGED THE SPEED TO 667MHZ MANUALLY BUT THE PC WOULD NOT POST. THEN I WENT INTO BIOS AGAIN AND ALSO CHANGED THE TIMMING MANUALLY TO 5-5-5-15 AND THE PC READ IT AS DUAL CHANNEL DDR2 667MHZ 1024MB, PERFECT. NOT A CON. MY FALT FOR NOT HAVING A LOT OF EXPERIENCE.

GOOD BOARD

ECS 661FX-M7 (1.1) LGA 775 SiS 661FX Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ECS 661FX-M7 (1.1) LGA 775 SiS 661FX Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: SIMPLE TO CONNECT. ONBOARD VIDEO. ECS 661FX-M7 (1.1), PENTIUM 4 531, 512MB SUPER TALENT, 250GB PATA WESTERN DIGITAL, SAMSUNG 18X LIGHTSCRIBE DVD+-

Cons: NONE.

Overall Review: I BOUGHT 5 OF THESE. FOR SOME REASON ONE OF THEM WAS NOT LETING ME SHUT DOWN THE PC. WHEN I CLICKED ON SHUT DOWN, THE PC WOULD JUST RESTART. BUT, ONE SINGLE EMAIL TO ECS AND THEY GAVE THE SOLUTION. IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF GOING INTO THE BIOS AND DISABLING ONE OF THE OPTIONS.
