Great CD-R Drives For The Price

Comments: I have used these CD-R drives for over a year now and not one has been defective. Have bought these locally for the same price as NewEgg. Why waste the gas to buy locally when I can order through NewEgg and have them in 2-3 days. Shipping is awesome with NewEgg.

Toshiba support Lacking

TOSHIBA HDD2191 (MK8026GAX) 80GB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Comments: Installed on Dell Inspiron 8000. It would not recognize full capacity of hard drive. Toshiba does not offer Ontrack Disc Manager as other major hard drive manufacturers for free. Had to Buy Ontrack Disc manager ($xxouch) to get the full capacity recognized. Check with other hard drive companies for the software before going with Toxhiba. Fast shipping from Newegg rocks.

Great Board

GIGABYTE GA-8I865GME-775-RH LGA 775 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-8I865GME-775-RH LGA 775 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nicer than the MS* 865GV that I had used before. All English ONLY Manual with more BIOS details. Diagrams are clear. Very fast with P4 640. Says it supports Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: I wish you others would stop complaining about the Socket 775 Heat sink/Fan and learn how to install them. Don't put down a good product because you don't know the proper way to install peripherals. It's not rocket science!!

Great Processor

Intel Celeron D 356 - Celeron D Cedar Mill Single-Core 3.33 GHz LGA 775 Processor - BX80552356
Intel Celeron D 356 - Celeron D Cedar Mill Single-Core 3.33 GHz LGA 775 Processor - BX80552356

Pros: I can't believe how fast this processor runs. A great buy.

Cons: None

Older Technology Better Value

Intel Pentium 4 531 - Pentium 4 Prescott Single-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 Processor - BX80547PG3000EK
Intel Pentium 4 531 - Pentium 4 Prescott Single-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 Processor - BX80547PG3000EK

Pros: Great Price on a Socket 775 that is not the cutting edge technology. Seems faster than a Pentium D 2.66 around the same price.

Cons: Heat sink can be a pain if you are not experienced with newer style Pentium 4

A Good Board

MSI 865GM3-V LGA 775 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI 865GM3-V LGA 775 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Support for Pentium D 805. Runs smoothly in general.

Cons: Won't recognize SATA 150 hard drives if over clocking feature is enabled???!!! Set BIOS defaults and set SATA to automatic. No connector for board "beep" speaker. On board Video a little flacky at tiems
