Exactly what I needed

EAGLE Consus ET-CSWSINASU2-BK NAS 3.5" SATA & IDE to USB 2.0 & Ethernet 10/100 RJ45 External Enclosure
EAGLE Consus ET-CSWSINASU2-BK NAS 3.5" SATA & IDE to USB 2.0 & Ethernet 10/100 RJ45 External Enclosure

Pros: Price, price, price, quiet, small power supply, nice interface, true SMB sharing (none of this NDAS stuff)... I love this thing!!! One of the only NAS enclosures that supports true SMB sharing. All the others needed drivers installed making them windows only. Well, all the others that wern't expensive :) Did I mention price????

Cons: Just nit picky things but the although the manual is good, it is very basic... I kind of wish that the PSU was built into the case, but it would be tough given the small size. The brick that comes with it isn't very big though, so it's all good...

Overall Review: I've been trying to find a way to use a 1tb drive in my Xbox with XBMC and have failed in every way trying to get my SATA drive working in the Xbox. I was going to use an old PIII computer as a NAS, but wanted transportability. This enclosure works PERFECTLY with my Samsung Spinpoint 1tb SATA drive - brilliant solution, excellent product. Will probably buy a 2nd one...

Cheetah mount

Cheetah Mounts Articulating Mount w/ Motion Swing Out, Tilt, Swivel & Dual Arms for 32-65" Flat Screen TV's
Cheetah Mounts Articulating Mount w/ Motion Swing Out, Tilt, Swivel & Dual Arms for 32-65" Flat Screen TV's

Pros: I haven't installed this mount yet, but it seems very well made and getting it for $45 is practically a steal!

Cons: I hope this is going to be okay for my tv. The description says it's for a 32-65" TV but the box does states it is for a 32-55" with a weight of less than 115 lbs. I purchased this to mount my 55" Vizio LED which is stated to weigh 75 lbs so in theory it should work, but the actual size on the mount is much smaller than I imagined. I'm hopeful it will work but I guess worst case is that I use it on my daughter's 32" for her bedroom...

No frills and just works

KWorld KW-SA220 External TVBox 1680ex w/ YPbPr 1080i Signal Input
KWorld KW-SA220 External TVBox 1680ex w/ YPbPr 1080i Signal Input

Pros: Inexpensive and does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Cons: Only thing I can think of it that it would be nice to have multiple input capability. I mean hook up more than 1 video source like 2 or 3 SVideo sources, but for 45 bucks I'm not complaining ;)

Overall Review: Had an Acer 19" LCD sitting on a shelf doing nothing but collecting dust and an aging 13" CRT television in the bedroom. I've been wanting to replace that 13" CRT for a while now but couldn't justify the cost of a decent size LCD television. For 45 bucks I now have that LCD :)

Does exactly what it needs to do

Eagle INEO I-NA202U Aluminum Alloy 2.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Eagle INEO I-NA202U Aluminum Alloy 2.5" Black USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: What can I say? It works fine. I had an 80g lappy drive kicking around doing nothing and for a shade over 10 bucks I got this case for it so I can haul "stuff" back and forth between work and home... The case is solid construction, light, looks nice and just works.

Cons: The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it only came with a USB power cable and not a USB mini data cable and the cloth carrying bag it came with is a little cheesy. However for 10 bucks, I'm not complaining too much ;)
