Wonderful

Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX
Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX

Pros: I have had this mouse for a little over a month. It's been wonderful so far! From using one of its predecessors for the last 3 years (VX Nano), Logitech has really made some smart changes. - Darkfield laser works smoothly and accurately on every surface I have tried, even where the old laser had failed. - Increased weight gives the mouse a solid and well built feeling. - More refined grip lets it fit more comfortably in your hand.

Cons: The buttons over the thumb are a little awkward at first, and the hyperfast scrolling wheel is a little unbalanced and makes a clicking noise where the older VX Nano was silent.

Overall Review: Default button uses are set up pretty well, so no SetPoint software needed unless you need to customize. While the new thumb button placement takes some getting used to, it should improve the durability of the mouse where the VX Nano's left-click button failed me twice. No word on the battery life as of yet. Even with heavy usage, it's still going strong. That's a good sign.

Fantastic!

G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

Pros: Installed on a Asus Maximus VI Gene (ROG) in no time at all. They fired up and overclocked without issue. Looks absolutely fantastic. The red/black theme look great on my board/rig.

Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Overall Review: I bought these on sale for dirt cheap instead of some Corsair Vengeance Pro's and halfheartedly expected to have some issues with them (always the pessimist). They have been nothing but flawless and I would immediately buy another set had I a use for more than 16Gb of memory.

Decent fan

Corsair Air Series AF120 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050001-WW)
Corsair Air Series AF120 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050001-WW)

Pros: Looks pretty good. Interchangeable rings are easy to change.

Cons: Can barely tell if is working. Doesn't seen to move much air. If I would have know just how loud my performance series SP120s on my radiator are, I wouldn't have gotten the quiet version of this fan.

Overall Review: The fan screws Corsair included with my case are too snug for these fans. The rubber corners warp so badly out of shape, I was afraid I might break them off. You'd think two fairly new products by the same company would have better compatibility.

Decent fans

Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050009-WW)
Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050009-WW)

Pros: Bought a pair for the front of my Corsair 350d. They fit great, easily installed. They are quiet and move a decent amount of air through the case. They also look great! The interchangeable color rings are easy to swap out.

Cons: One of the fans squeaks at low rpms. Haven't bothered to return it since they are almost always at 60%+ or off and don't make a sound.

Pretty decent router, Very pleased

ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort

Pros: I can only compare it to my previous Linksys single-band 802.11 n router. That said, it is magnificent. The router is on the other side of the house and down a floor, but I'm still getting an excellent signal and the same rates as if I was wired in. Additionally, the dual-band is worth the additional cost since my internet no longer drops out when my wireless phone rings (interference on the 2.4ghz band).

Cons: Back in my day, routers used to be a nickel! Jokes. Don't remember routers being this expensive, but with the improvements over my last router, I don't have much to complain about.

Overall Review: On-screen setup was easy to follow. I found one bit of the directions confusing the way it was worded, but was simple enough to guess what it was asking for.

Nice and Slim

Incipio feather Matte Black Solid Ultra Light Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4/4S                                                         IPH-512
Incipio feather Matte Black Solid Ultra Light Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4/4S IPH-512

Pros: I wanted a slimmer case to protect the back glass from scratches and the Incipio feather does just that. Matte, rubberized finish provides enough grip that the phone won't slip out of your hand or off an unleveled table, but will still slide into your pocket easily. Doesn't feel bulky like the Griffin case I had previously. Can't beat $12 with free shipping including 2 screen protectors (not used because I already had one on the phone)

Cons: A couple small flaws in the matte finish and seams from the injection molding process visible out of the box, but nothing that affects the fit on the phone.

Overall Review: The edges of the glass along the screen are flush with the sides of the case, but the top and bottom are still exposed. Case will not protect phone laying on its screen, still resting on screen protector.
