Great Webcam

Pros: Quick easy installation, excellent resolution and video appearance. Works great with Skype. For the price, it will not disappoint.

Cons: Requires latest video drivers if you have intel intergrated video card.

Most Critical Review

I am not impressed

Rosewill RNX-N150PCx, Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (1T1R) Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates, PCI 2.2 Interface

Pros: Okay for average user. Decent price tag.

Cons: Can not rely on constant connection. Drops signal and have to reactivate profile setting to reestablish connection.

Overall Review: In the future I will purchase something more reliable.

DOA

Pros: Got it fast, included an adequate amount of standoffs/screws.

Cons: First power-on and it just would turn off after about 5 seconds and repeat. I blamed everything else changing the RAM, then the PS, then finally the switches.

Overall Review: I sent it back today and hope to receive a replacement board that works. These things happen I will keep this updated to how the new board performs.

Great!

Cons: None

Louder than expected, but fast

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity 100283VX-2L

Pros: Great card for the $$$. I use it for WoW and can play with very high settings.

Cons: Increased my systems total noise to a level that I was trying to avoid before.

Speedy, Fast install, Quick OS load

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 55GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G
OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 55GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G

Pros: Runs pretty fast, I am using Windows 7 (64-bit) and it boots to a usable desktop in under 20 seconds. I have all the updates and couple of apps installed and I still have about 30GB remaining. Bumped my WEI score for the Hard drive to 7.3 (from 5.9 with a 7200 rpm).

Cons: Still a bit pricey. I was hoping as they became popular the price would drop. It is hard to convince others that this upgrade is worth the money as it stands now...

Overall Review: I'm using my 7200rpm 1TB drive as a secondary for storage as 60GB is not enough. Just mailed in my rebate form.
