Good Monitor

Acer G245HQABD 23.6" LCD Monitor Black 5ms Full HD Widescreen 300 cd/m2 ACM 80,000:1 (1,000:1)
Acer G245HQABD 23.6" LCD Monitor Black 5ms Full HD Widescreen 300 cd/m2 ACM 80,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Good picture quality Sturdy design Monitor looks great

Cons: No speakers, usb ports or HDMI connection (knew this when buying it so not knocking off any eggs)

Overall Review: Great monitor but the pictured one is not the one i received! The one i received is all black with no grey trim as shown. A little disappointed by that but otherwise, it is a great monitor.

Great SSD

Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD2
Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD2

Pros: This SSD has been wonderful for me with no problems as of yet. Computer boots up EXTREMELY quickly. All icons are loaded and programs launch instantly after start-up. I haven't even updated the firmware to the newest version, and that is supposed to increase it's speed even more. Works great for running games. Played BF3 on this computer and this SSD loaded levels very quickly and easily.

Cons: Pricier than a standard hard drive?

Overall Review: Absolutely worth the money!

good product for the money

elgato - EyeTV Hybrid (2009)
elgato - EyeTV Hybrid (2009)

Pros: -tv on your computer for a relatively low cost compared to a tv -ability to record shows while you're not there -pretty good picture quality -ability to hook up all sorts of devices through the rca cable adapter provided (such as vcr, game console, dvd player etc...) -great for college dorms (exactly what i use it for)

Cons: -HD doesn't work on mine, maybe it doesn't have HD support (i thought elgato's website said it does) -uses up a lot of computing power unless you have an intel mac -computer has to be on to record programs (i have a laptop so sometimes i close it forgetting i'm about to record a program)`

Overall Review: this is a great little dangle. provides a quality dvr right on your computer. gives you the ability to record programs and then burn them onto a dvd with toast 9 (sadly toast 9 is not included). overall i'm very happy with this product!

Good External HD

WD My Passport 320GB 2.5" USB 2.0 Mac Storage Model WDMEA3200AN
WD My Passport 320GB 2.5" USB 2.0 Mac Storage Model WDMEA3200AN

Pros: looks great, 7200 rpm, and works very well.

Cons: capacity maybe? 320gb is a little small.

Overall Review: great hard drive for the money.

Great mouse, for casual use.

Logitech VX Nano Black 6 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks
Logitech VX Nano Black 6 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks

Pros: Pretty accurate mouse and has a relatively good feel to it. Very small receiver.

Cons: Buttons are in an awkward place. After about 5 months the mouse wheel got sticky and wont allow the wheel to scroll very quickly. Also i recently got into playing first person shooters a lot and after you've been playing for a while your hand starts to hurt because the mouse is too small.

Overall Review: This mouse was great when i first got it. I know it's not made for playing games so that's why I'm still giving it 4 stars.
