Most Favorable Review

Quality Non-Windowed Case

be quiet! PURE BASE 600 - Black
be quiet! PURE BASE 600 - Black

Pros: - Well built - No sharp edges - Comes with quiet fans - It has a 5.25" drive bay, which was important to me. - Diagonal air slots in the front seem to provide enough air flow for the front fan to work properly, unlike many other cases.

Cons: - I've bought both a windowed one and a non-windowed one. The window is not a door. It's just a sheet of glass with four holes that has to be completely removed each time you open the case. The screws for the windowed one stick out quite a bit, so I didn't like that. The non-windowed one is a typical side panel with two screws in the back, which works great.

Overall Review: - Yes, I would recommend the non-window version.

Pretty Loud

LG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal 12X Blu-ray Combo Drive Model UH12NS29

Pros: Works well enough.

Cons: Quite loud whenever a disc is spinning (reading/writing). I've used other drives which are much quieter.

Overall Review: If you're installing this in a Mid-Tower or Full Tower and want to put it in the top drive bay, get an 18" SATA cable. The SATA cables that come with the motherboards aren't long enough to reach the top drive bay.

Works Well

Overall Review: The cable works as intended. I was able to use it to plug a USB-C external hard drive enclosure into a USB-A port. The computer recognized it perfectly.

Very Loud

be quiet! Pure Wings 2 140mm high-speed, silent case fans

Pros: - Seems well made

Cons: - Loud

Overall Review: I bought this fan to use as a front fan on an NZXT H510 case, since it doesn't come with a front fan. I was very disappointed in how loud this fan was. I couldn't hear the rear fan or the CPU fan, but this fan was very loud. Perhaps it was running too fast, but I didn't have a way to alter that. I ended up not using it.

My favorite mouse

Logitech G502 HERO High Performance Gaming Mouse (910-005469)
Logitech G502 HERO High Performance Gaming Mouse (910-005469)

Pros: - Superb sensor accuracy allows turning up the sensitivity while maintaining full control of the cursor (which in turn greatly reduces wrist strain) - Wired, so no charging to deal with - Very well made

Cons: - The side buttons aren't in a good position for my hand to use them. Fortunately, I've only played one game where I wished I could use them, and I never need them for work.

Overall Review: This is my favorite mouse. I recommend it to my friends and clients alike. I've bought a lot of these over the years. My first one still works great, and I use it most of the day, every day. I recommend using a quality mouse pad with it. I prefer hard mouse pads like the Logitech G440, but that's up to you.

Excellent replacement for stock Intel cooler

Cooler Master i71C RGB for Intel CPU Air Cooler, Anodized Black Aluminum Fins, Copper Insert, MF120 RGB Fan, RGB Lighting for Intel LGA1200/1151
Cooler Master i71C RGB for Intel CPU Air Cooler, Anodized Black Aluminum Fins, Copper Insert, MF120 RGB Fan, RGB Lighting for Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: - Quiet - Much larger heat sink and fan than stock Intel cooler - Well made - RGB for those who like it

Cons: - Can't connect the RGB connector to the motherboard. It only works with the included dongle. - If you don't want the RGB, you can leave it unplugged, but the wire is still hanging there. All you can do is tie it up. It's minor, but I thought I'd mention it. - You can still use the first RAM slot, but I wouldn't say it's easy to put a stick in with the fan in place. If you're only using two slots it's not an issue.

Overall Review: An excellent replacement for a stock Intel CPU cooler at half the cost of a Hyper 212.

Good product

These are clones of the old Microsoft Natural keyboards. They seem to be well-made and allow me to continue using a keyboard I prefer. The Microsoft Natural keyboard I started with definitely helped with my carpal tunnel.

It's a nice looking product. I bought it for an NVMe SSD that I took out of a laptop and it works well. I'm not a fan of the upside down screw for attaching the SSD, but it works. It rattled a little after I installed it. I cut a notecard and put a piece in the end, and that fixed it.

I really like this keyboard. It definitely reminds me of the Microsoft Natural keyboards. As someone who has had carpal tunnel, I appreciate the long term effects of typing on normal keyboards that aren't noticeable in the short term.
