Pros: Hardly audible even at full speed.
Cons: Doesn't move much air compared to other fans this size.
Overall Review: Ultimately, you can't have quietness AND high airflow. If decibels are your main priority then this is a good choice, otherwise you might want to look elsewhere.
Pros: Simple to set up, ink is cheap/lasts a long time (at least for the price)
Cons: Wireless only. Not a problem for me, but thought I'd mention it.
Overall Review: Cheap ink works just fine 4/5 times, but it has 5 tanks >.> If you just need to print a few things from time to time this is a good choice, may want to look at something bigger if you need volume.
Pros: Takes very little effort to move, but isn't too floaty, and the buttons have a nice tactile feel to them. The charging cable is made well and fits into the mouse without having to mess with it, even if it's a bit stiff at first. Feels nice and sturdy, too.
Cons: The rechargeable battery that comes with this isn't very good, but you could replace it with a better NiCd AA. The scroll wheel has a button to make it clicky or smooth, on smooth it's too floaty and webpages can keep scrolling after you stop (it's easy to compensate for by just being gentle with it).
Overall Review: I might've given this 4 stars, but any issues with the mouse aren't anything that can't be compensated for by using it a little different.
Pros: Good consistency, not too runny or thick and it's not too hard to clean up if you make a mistake. It's also a really good thermal conductor. I put it on my CPU and GPU, both stay very stable at ~30C with the stock coolers.
Cons: It can take awhile for the smell to dissipate, but it's not strong or unpleasent so it's not a big deal.
Pros: BlueTrack works really well, super accurate and smooth (might take some getting used to, actually). The keyboard is sturdy and the buttons have the right amount of softness.
Cons: The scroll wheel on the mouse doesn't click, which is nice for scrolling web pages, but not so much for switching weapons in a video game.
Overall Review: As long as you don't use it for gaming (or use the scroll wheel while doing so), this is a perfectly good keyboard and mouse.
Pros: Has good picture quality and sound. It's also pretty thin and light, good for setting on top of a dresser for the bedroom.
Cons: It's only 720p so fine details won't be as distinct, but the low price makes up for it.
Overall Review: The ClearVoice works a lot better than you'd think, don't need to turn it up nearly so loud to hear what people are saying.
Pros: Definitely better than the stock memory in my Gateway laptop, it now surfs the internet with relative ease even with multiple tabs open. It can even play flash games(sorta), now!
Cons: While it's much better than it was, don't expect this memory to make everything butter-smooth. Even thought this is probably the best memory you can get, remember that it's still DDR2 and so won't be very fast.
Pros: Relatively light and flexible, it shouldn't be a problem routing it through almost anything.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Pros: When they said ultra-slim, they really meant it. It's hard to believe 2073600 (1920*1080) pixels move through there at 60 fps, on top of audio and ethernet.
Cons: The only complaint I might have is how insubstantial the stress relief looks, but at the same time there's very little weight to this thing so it might not be a problem.
Pros: Great picture, the high contrast ratio really makes a difference. Also, it supports both RGB and YCbCr. For $120, you can't go wrong with this one.
Cons: One thing that's quite annoying is that it will crash every once in awhile when hooked up via HDMI. A shame since HDMI looks much more brilliant than VGA.
Overall Review: As long as you hook up this monitor with VGA or DVI, it's well worth it.
Pros: Very powerful for it's TDP (73W). I got this pre-installed in my Dell Inspiron 580 and it's done everything I've asked of it without slowing down even while playing intensive games like Skyrim.
Cons: It is for a legacy socket, LGA 1156, and so quality motherboards for it aren't being manufactured, anymore.
Pros: They're long enough to be routed throughout the case, but no too long as to get in the way.
Cons: Because they're round instead of flat, they aren't quite as flexible in one direction like normal SATA cables, but they make up for it by being more flexible all around.
Pros: Even when plugged into USB 2.0 plugs, it runs much faster than my previous USB flash drive.
Cons: 16 GB is a bit small, don't expect to put very large files (i.e. video, even at low res) on it and still have room.
Pros: The Class 10 speed rating is accurate and the card performs well.
Cons: None that I've encountered so far that aren't inherent to Micro SD cards.
Pros: Easy to open and apply.
Cons: Also easy to use too much and get the paste all over your motherboard.
Overall Review: I don't recommend using an entire packet or you'll end up with a mess and will have to re-clean and re-apply it.
Pros: Awesome sound, it's clear as a bell and has amazing range. It's also really light and comfortable.
Cons: Are kidding me?
Overall Review: After using some mid-range headphones for so long it really amazing what I've been missing. Songs sound completely different, they're rich and clear.
Pros: It's got plenty of room for large components like graphics cards and hard drives. Most of the frame is made of vents, so airflow isn't a problem and the included fans perform well.
Cons: The cable routing area behind the motherboard can get a little tight with thick cables like 24-pin ATX connectors, though not so much as to be unusable. After all, it's better to have sub-par cable routing than none at all.
Pros: Easy to install (as is the case with most power supplies) and the cables have enough length for my Mid-Tower sized case. It runs really quiet and puts off only luke-warm heat at most.
Cons: It's a 450W power supply, so if you're needing more juice for a power-hungry rig, a bigger unit would be wise. Otherwise, it has enough watts to power most low- to mid-end computers
Pros: Easy to use, just put several drops on the chip, then let it soak for awhile and wipe away.
Cons: None that I found while using it, it did exactly as it said it would.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: The faceplate doesn't really snap into place so much as just sit in the gap between the front of the device (media card reader or whatever you have) and the case.
Pros: Simple and well-made.
Cons: Not really useful if you need 2 fully functioning fans off of one plug.
Overall Review: While it works fine, you should keep in mind that it'll cut the voltage to your each fan in half, so don't expect them to be able to move much air as they won't be able to reach full speed.
