Most Favorable Review

Nice

ICY DOCK MB671SK-BB Tray-less 3.5" SATA I, II & III Internal Hard Drive Mobile Rack - Matt Black
ICY DOCK MB671SK-BB Tray-less 3.5" SATA I, II & III Internal Hard Drive Mobile Rack - Matt Black

Pros: Easy install, solid construction, door does not need to be locked in order to run (no need to worry about losing the keys), don't need a tray.

Cons: Drives come out HOT so watch your fingers.

Overall Review: This is my first ICYDOCK and I'm happy. And as others have mentioned, it uses a molex for power, so check you have an available connector before buying.

Most Critical Review

It is a chair

Rosewill High Back Leather Executive Chair - Black (RFFC-11001)
Rosewill High Back Leather Executive Chair - Black (RFFC-11001)

Pros: Easy to assemble.

Cons: Doesn't tilt back very far.

Overall Review: The chair is not great quality, but you get what you pay for and so I don't consider this to be a con. I am 6'1" and about 220 lbs and I haven't destroyed it yet, so I guess it can't be that cheaply made :). But I would not recommend it for someone my height or someone who has to sit in it for many hours.

Best PC RPG Ever

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PC Game
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PC Game

Pros: Simply awesome to play.

Cons: Some minor bugs out of the box, but no show stoppers.

Overall Review: Modding the game has been fun, but the documentation for doing anything fancy is scarce. Steam's mod shop is nice little feature though.

Pretty good

Pros: It works.

Cons: When connected wirelessly, I was having problems getting the driver to find it. So many moving parts it is difficult to say where the problem is, but since it is the only wireless device in my network to have problems, I dinged it a start.

Overall Review: The scanning interface on the unit's console is clunky, as another reviewer said. But since there are only two options, simple trial and error saves the day.

Meh

Enclume 30-in. Decor Retro Rectangular Pot Rack with Grid, Hammered Steel
Enclume 30-in. Decor Retro Rectangular Pot Rack with Grid, Hammered Steel

Pros: It is what is advertised.

Cons: I bought this specific make and model on a recommendation and I am not impressed. It seems overpriced for what you get.

Overall Review: The good news is that NewEgg had the best price in town. Once again, NewEgg rocks.

Do the job

Rosewill HDMI Cable 6 ft., Support 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) and HD 1080p, HDMI Cord 6 Feet Black Male to Male, Gold Plated Connectors, Ethernet/Audio Return Channel, RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3
Rosewill HDMI Cable 6 ft., Support 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) and HD 1080p, HDMI Cord 6 Feet Black Male to Male, Gold Plated Connectors, Ethernet/Audio Return Channel, RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3

Pros: I use these to connect multiple devices to a splitter because my TV only has two HDMI ports. I don't need them long and I don't really care about shielding, gold contacts and all that cr@p. They get the job done.

Cons: None.
