Most Favorable Review

Messy but will last a long time

Cooler Master IceFusion - 200 g High Performance Thermal Compound
Cooler Master IceFusion - 200 g High Performance Thermal Compound

Pros: Plenty of thermal compound that will last me a very long time especially with the plastic seal that you can place back on the inside to keep it from drying out.

Cons: Really messy and stains shirts but that's why I wear "cheap" shirts while working on computers.

Overall Review: This is a very good deal for those that build a new system every few years or so. It doesn't seem to dry out as long as you keep the lid on it. TIP: Get a syringe and use it for application or a "tongue" depressor (Ask your doctor nicely for a few).

Pros: Lots of storage for cheap

Cons: 1 of the 2 drives failed in the first few hours of use

Overall Review: Buy the slightly more expensive drives next time... save yourself some headache from these "cheap" drives

Pros: Twice as fast data copy speed as my last SATA DVD Drive Really quiet - I can not even tell when a disk is in the drive Price is very good

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Really glad I replaced my last drive with this one. It is worth it. If you are upgrading from IDE optical drive to SATA it is worth the difference in transfer speeds.

FoodSaver T000-08001 V3440 Vacuum Sealer Kit
FoodSaver T000-08001 V3440 Vacuum Sealer Kit

Pros: Fast sealing works every time! Keeps food fresh much longer Has a "Normal" / "Gentle" Marinate faster by forcing the liquid through the meat Takes rolls so I choose the bag size

Cons: Loud

Overall Review: If you buy in bulk or even just buy big packages of meat and break them up this will pay for itself. You can buy bigger packages of meat and seal it tight so your meat will not frost burn.

Last Review "NULL / VOID"

StarTech.com S352U2RER Dual 3.5" SATA I/II USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure
StarTech.com S352U2RER Dual 3.5" SATA I/II USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: It turned on

Cons: It does not work right with my 1tb drives. I purchased them at the same time as the enclosure so they are the exact same model. I tried to contact the manufacturer but never resolved the problem of RAID1 Failing/resetting and losing all the data. The failure occurs anytime between turning it back on to 4 hours. It is not the drives because I was able to use the drive for 24 hours straight on the external docking stations from the manufacturer.

Overall Review: I am attempting to return it and will probably avoid Startech from now on.
