Pros: works out of the box Works with external hard drives with their own power Mouse and keyboard work too.

Cons: no power brick

Overall Review: Thought I got ripped off with no brick with the hub. there is a 5 volt power female plugin. But its doing good so far. With only 2 usb 3.0 slots on my HP I will buy another.

Pros: nice looking case

Cons: this case cant hold a dvd/cd drive. any mother board it can house can only be 6 inches wide. My atx MB wont allow any cd dvd drive to be housed in the case.

Low cost Windows

Pros: Cheap. Win 7 is the best MS os so far. Quick shipping from Newegg.

Cons: none..well..its windows. Had to re install all my old programs and setting <lazy snivel >

Overall Review: Installed windows on an old e510 dell to use as a home theater PC. When I installed windows 7 I forgot to remove my raid card. Doh. That was the only hic-up. I did a clean install to a new HD. I will be doing that from now on.

my luck is with seagate brand

Seagate BarraCuda LP ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: this is a low cost 2tb HD for storing videos. So it works great. It's a seagate. I will buy another drive.

Cons: OEM. so it might be a bit of a problem for people that have never used OEM (no install software) but you can download that software from the seagate homepage.

Overall Review: READ CONS. I myself like seagate. All my old seagate drives are still running even tho half are patas (so I dont use them except on test builds) the others are 5+ year old satas.

upgrade my emachine power supply

RAIDMAX RX-450K Continuous 450 watts ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V Power Supply
RAIDMAX RX-450K Continuous 450 watts ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V Power Supply

Pros: I bought this psu to replace my Emachines 230 power supply. My machine kept freezing every 2-3 days ( I leave it running 24-7). Rather then paying 40 bucks to send it in and have it serviced I picked up this psu. So far..no freezes and I think the system even runs better. Good deal for the cash..

Cons: well first off only one sata power connector ( I ordered two molex-sata convert cables). Second..well not loud..but it is louder then my dells psu.

Overall Review: knowing what i know now about this psu I would order a different one. I like quiet fans and PSUs. It was quickly shipped and easy to install (it was only a PSU I know) but for some it might be tricky.

simply WOW!

Rosewill RX35-AT-IU BLK - Aluminum 3.5" Black IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Out of the box and running in fifteen minuets. Easy to put together...and yes..I did read the directions. <man shame> One tool, a screw driver. Now my old 160 gig seagate HD lives and stores again. My new PC has STAT drives and not IDE. 21 bucks for 160 gigs! The drive is hooked up to my home network and works great.

Cons: Well its kind of slow moving files but its USB and not an IDE cable. and the foam peanuts...what to do with them....?
