Superb mid-range video card

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 2GB WINDFORCE 2X OC EDITION, GV-N960WF2OC-2GD
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 2GB WINDFORCE 2X OC EDITION, GV-N960WF2OC-2GD

Pros: Huge upgrade from my older HD5770. Fast enough to play Fallout 4 at 1080P ULTRA high settings @ 60fps...oh and it does all that seamlessly: no noise, no heat, no outsized power supplies and electrical bills. Also more video output options than most GTX 960s.

Cons: none so far for me, but if you have mini-tower make sure you have the clearance to fit this long card in and will still need at least 400W power supply (it's very efficient, but not magical).

Overall Review: Uses double (6pin + 6pin) PCI-E power connectors (two MOLEX to PCI-E converter cables included) More than 2 Gigs video memory is a waste of money with these 128 bit cards. Most 960 chipset cards are comparable, but Gigabyte has a very solid overall product with a mix of refinement and performance. MSI is nice too, maybe a tick slower but runs even a bit quieter.

Problematic

BUFFALO LinkStation Duo 2-Bay 2 TB (2 x 1 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) -  LS-WX2.0TL/R1
BUFFALO LinkStation Duo 2-Bay 2 TB (2 x 1 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-WX2.0TL/R1

Pros: Looks nice, has good set of options and more or less logical interface. Price. Support on Buffalo forums is ok.

Cons: Unit came with a defective hard drive and drove me crazy. Array reformat failed half way and I spent many many many hours trying to figure out whats wrong with it and fix it. Tech support is pretty much going on their forums and trying to fish for information, there is basically no real formal guide to do anything on this thing. THE FIRMWARE RESIDES DIRECTLY ON THE HARD DRIVES, so if there is a problem with the hard drives you have to jump all kinds of convoluted hoops to get the unit functioning again. I wouldn't deal with this unit again...

Great entry level server

Pros: Inexpensive, built for 24x7 uptime and reliability, easy to configure. I use these for small office server needs with RAID 0 configuration.

Cons: can't think of any

Great screen protector for iphone 6

roocase Premium Real Tempered Glass Screen Protector Guard for Apple iPhone 6 / 6S 4.7-inch
roocase Premium Real Tempered Glass Screen Protector Guard for Apple iPhone 6 / 6S 4.7-inch

Pros: Super smooth, feels slicker than even iphone's own glass. Good fit Easy to apply (use sticker hinge to line up, then peel off film and lay it perfectly), see youtube. Good price compared to what you'd pay in stores.

Cons: Because it is glass the trade off is it can get small crack-nicks along the edges if it gets rubbed with keys and other hard objects.

Nice and big

Cons: none I could think of

Great iphone 6 case from Spigen

Spigen Aluminum Fit Space Grey Case for iPhone 6 (4.7") SGP10948
Spigen Aluminum Fit Space Grey Case for iPhone 6 (4.7") SGP10948

Pros: looks great. perfect fit, slim, brushed aluminum back does not slip in hand, good quality, does not interfere with camera functions.

Cons: Not really con but slim cases by design cannot give you maximum phone protection. You'll have some protection for the back, sides and corners but if the phone drops flat on the face (very unlikely) you'll have to change the glass

Overall Review: Spigen had similar slim case for Iphone 4 and new one for 6 is just as excellent.
