Pros: I bought two of these to operate in RAID1 for my plex media server, while I haven't had any more than three people access the media at one time, I haven't had any playback issues or slowdowns.
Cons: Wish I had bought three for a RAID5. 4TB seems to fill up a bit too fast.
Pros: With the ASUS Aura program, it seems there are a total of 5 RGB LED lights within the ram sticks.
Each of the LED lights can be set to a specific color individually or added to a global special effect.
16GB modules leave room for more.
Overall Review: It's a bit more expensive than non-RGB RAM modules, but if you're going for an RGB build, these are definitely worth the extra cost.
Pros: With overclock, Mem 1650Mhz (6.6Ghz) Core 1100Mhz, Benchmarks are higher than 290X and 780 Ti stock.
Still runs cold at ~72c under game load with OC.
Cons: Very big. be sure to have ample room.
Overall Review: Specs:

16GB DDR3 1800Mhz G.Skill Sniper
R9 290 Vapor-X OC (OC)
Custom loop liquid cooled
Kingston 240 GB SSD

Pros: I'd just like to make a few updates. After reseating adjusting thermal compound and voltages. I've brought the temps down quite a bit. Idle at 23-26c game load ~33c Prime 95 load 58c Despite the trouble its worth another egg.

Pros: A good white board to write on and project onto. Easy setup.
Cons: Slight glare from projector at wrong angle but to be expected.
Pros: Fairly thin bezel for eyefinity, very bright.
Cons: Controls, including power button, are in awkward position for a 3x2 eyefinity 6 setup.
Pros: 1500 Watts support
Pros: Plenty of outlets, long cable. Nice to have some protection for thousands of dollars worth of computer tech and monitors.
Pros: Price, Screen size, 1080p, ease of use, user interface, set up, inputs, built in speakers are decent.
Cons: Loud. Very, even with silent mode enabled. Impossible to focus completely at an angle. limited but decent options.
Overall Review: Not bad for the price at all. But not the best option for a home theater system.
Pros: Great headset, very immersive, good bass, nice control unit, tons of wires, good construction. I was told by other on vent that it was a huge improvement over using the speaker phone mic on my phone. The best headset I've owned to date.
Cons: There were some draw backs though. The box came with plenty of wires except the one to adapt their specially designed wire to 3.5mm for computer interface. It can be jacked directly into the computer but you won't be able to use the dial interface. The extra cable is only an extra 6$ off their website the Z Seven PC Adapter. For those lucky enough to have a "TOSLINK" or Optical Audio port in their computer you'll be able to work around this using their included "Console Adapter". By plugging the headset into the dial interface which plugs into the console adapter which then connects into the PC though the Optical Audio port. You'll also need 1 free USB port to power the Dial and Console adapter, the Dial will draw power from the console adapter which draws power from the computer USB port (or console).
The other problem I noticed was that when the volume was extremely low the audio wouldn't be able to come though as someone mentioned before. It will be broken and skip, though you can get pretty low before this starts happening but if you were just looking to listen to some very quiet music while studying I wouldn't recommend these.
Overall Review: Great with Video games, Music and movies. Just disappointed as it includes "PC" as a use for it yet doesn't include the adapter that would allow you to use it to its full potential.
