No problems

Mushkin Enhanced STEALTH 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996995S
Mushkin Enhanced STEALTH 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996995S

Pros: I have had this for almost a year with my GTX 660, FX 6300, on an ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AMD 970 & SB950 ATX DDR3 800 AMD - AM3+ Motherboard. I have played a library of 130 games ranging from CaveStory to Bioshcok Infinite and Metro Last Light. I have had no complications with this RAM so far.

Cons: Looks bland. Which could be a pro or con depending on what you want.

Buyer's Remorse

AZIO KB577U Levetron Mech5 Mechanical Keyboard w/ Cherry Black MX Switches
AZIO KB577U Levetron Mech5 Mechanical Keyboard w/ Cherry Black MX Switches

Pros: My favorite aspect is its rubber keys. Lots of Macros.

Cons: Too large Too Loud Too plastic

Overall Review: I could do without the detachable Num pad to make it shorter on the sides. and the attachable macro keys are too boxy, needs to be thinner. There needs to be some gloss or rubber padding. I wish I would have gone with the Microsoft SideWinder X4 Returning this would cost me $26

Overall good

ASUS Transformer Book T100 Intel Z3740 Quad Core 2GB DDR3 RAM 64GB SSD 10.1" Touchscreen Tablet w/Dock, Windows 8.1 (T100TA-C1-GR)
ASUS Transformer Book T100 Intel Z3740 Quad Core 2GB DDR3 RAM 64GB SSD 10.1" Touchscreen Tablet w/Dock, Windows 8.1 (T100TA-C1-GR)

Pros: 1. The price 3. Full Windows 8.1 (not RT [this is a huge deal]) 2. Comes with Office! (also a big deal) 2. Small 3. USB and Micro SD 4. Camera 5. Speakers can be loud 6. Set-up is easy. It is virtually a plug-and-play

Cons: 1. Not enough RAM (needs atleast 1gb more to completely win me over) 2. Not a whole lot of built in storage, but the Micro SD slot helps. 3. You might have to update the BIOS when you get it in order to get the most out of your battery (an email to ASUS will tell you what you need to download for that) 4. The charging wire is too short. Your initial charge will most likely be on your floor. Thankfully, wires are cheap. Although ASUS should provide a long enough wire initially.

Overall Review: Managing multiple tabs is slow. 1gb of RAM is really not enough to let this be considered a laptop. There should be 2 models of the t100: one with 1gb and 2gb. I had to return my first one due to the fact that it would not charge. That lead to a long 20 day wait and an annoying transfer of extended warranty; however, it was worth it. ASUS could toss in a couple cheap items to make this purchase phenomenal; such as a tablet pen, a screen protector, a longer wire, and a 2gb option (had to toss that in there). Overall, I am happy with my purchase. There are a lot of case options available for this product. I bought a $20 leather case for it that looks nice, but makes it over 2 times thicker. I really like the keyboard and the 3.0 USB. I would like if the feel of the keyboard. Also the joint feels like solid aluminum, which gives it a premium feel. Would buy it again. I love having the keyboard to type stuff up and work with office and then having the ability to detach it and read documents in portrait mode.

Decent Case

Pros: I like the size and the front look. I like the modest window.

Cons: One of the plastic snaps for the front panel fell off on its own. It's not a big deal but now the top corner is a little loose. Also, while putting it together I lost two screws for my power supply, they vanished liked screws do. It's no big deal, I just screw*ed (NewEgg won't let me use the word since it is "inappropriate.") in 2 corners but it would've been nice if it came with a couple back ups.

Overall Review: The built in stand offs had me a little uneasy at first, especially since both my new mother board and CPU were somehow fried out of the box. But after getting replacements and using some spacers my mind was at ease.

They did the job

Pros: Good entry point into Headsets incase it is your first one. It is inexpensive and gives you an idea if you need anything better. This was my first headset. I was unsure about spending 300 so I got these and a month later I upgraded.

Cons: Volume isn't as loud as I would have liked. Would like more control over mic volume.

Works great

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: Have had it for 3/4 a year with no problems. This paired with my motherboard can boot 8 in 1 second. I get closer to an actual Tb than other drives.

Cons: I've noticed slightly slower performance now that I have 200 Gb left. But that's likely not due to the drive.
