Great device

Scythe SCKJA-1000 "KAMA JACKET" USB2.0 IDE External 2.5" HDD Adapter
Scythe SCKJA-1000 "KAMA JACKET" USB2.0 IDE External 2.5" HDD Adapter

Pros: Works great, does as advertised. Simple setup, no drivers.

Cons: I wish the adapter fit into the rubberized case, rather it sticks outside of it.

Overall Review: For the price, this is a great device, although i would have designed the case to hold the adapter as well.

Amazing network cam

Panasonic BL-C131A 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless Pan/Tilt MPEG-4 PetCam Network Camera with Preset Modes

Pros: The camera was a breeze to setup. If you are computer savvy, you won't need the instructions, just a little common sense. The camera gets great wireless reception throughout my apartment, especially the baby's room (the most important spot). The web interface is easy to use, and with UPNP, I was able to get it on the internet without any effort at all. To my surprise the camera supported WPA/PSK AES security instead of just the lousy WEP.

Cons: Price could be lower. 802.11N would have been nice.

Overall Review: I think I'll buy a second one for front door surveillance.

Big and Ugly but works great

Rosewill RNX-G1W Wireless White Dongle with External 2dBi SMA Antenna IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Works perfectly, installation was a breeze.

Cons: It's big and ugly, only slightly smaller than my Cell phone.

Overall Review: You'd think this type of technology would be the size of a thumbnail by now. Blue tooth is tiny, why can't wifi be tiny?

Great laptop

HP Laptop Pavilion dv4-1120us Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 250GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 14.1" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Just the right price for this mid-range laptop. I bought this for my wife for her school work, email, blogging and browsing. It's more than powerful enough for movie viewing, and light photoshop work. For a 14" Laptop it's lightweight, I like that I can take out the DVD Burner and slip in a blank placeholder to make it even lighter. Wireless N is nice and fast.

Cons: Bloatware! Took about 30mins to uninstall all the junk that comes pre-installed.

Overall Review: Wish it came with blue tooth and Blu-ray for the same price.

Great Router

Linksys WRT160N Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Works as advertised, I get a nice signal throughout my apartment. Wireless N speeds are nice! Easy to Setup.

Cons: NAT UI is still the same old boring UI. The routers are getting fresh looks, why can't the UI get better on the NAT.

Excellent Headset!

SENNHEISER PC151 3.5mm Connector Binaural Headset
SENNHEISER PC151 3.5mm Connector Binaural Headset

Pros: I've been using these headsets for years. As a daily gamer, I often drop my headset off my desk or accidentally pull on the cords daily, giving the headsets plenty of abuse. The headphones sound great.

Cons: This is the 3rd set that I've owned, each time the mic line gets shorted out at the volume control junction. But no worries, Sennheiser will replace them for free under warranty.
