Pros: Fantastic product. Cheap, reliable, quiet. Everything you could want. Super simple installation. Just plugs in and that's it.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I do a lot of DVD burning & copying, and this doesn't disappoint. Burns a 4.37gb DVD copy in about 15 minutes.

Second time's a charm

Pros: Simple to install, easy to afford.

Cons: The first one I got didn't work. NewEgg happily replaced it for me, no hassle. The second one works fine.

Works great

Omni Gear HDMI-2-HDMI 6 ft. Black HDMI to HDMI 2.0 Cable (4K Ultra HD) Male to Male

Pros: Works like a charm; just as good as the $99 ones. Never pay for overpriced cables!

Cons: None

Overall Review: I laugh every time I see HDMI cables in the stores that cost $99 - $150. Who buys those things?

Great

Rosewill RHM-556 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
Rosewill RHM-556 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: Blocks outside noise very well. I used them on a flight and loved them. Mic is also quite adequate for gaming.

Cons: The mic can sound a little shallow or metallic at times, but as I said, if you are only using it for gaming or Skype, I personally think its fine. You can't use it for any professional recordings or anything like that.

Overall Review: I recommended this headset to my friend who bought it and also likes it.

Excellent

SUPER TALENT Pico_C 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model STU4GPCS
SUPER TALENT Pico_C 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model STU4GPCS

Pros: This is an excellent little drive. It has a very nice solid metal feel, not flimsy or plasticy at all. Perfect for keyrings. I have not tested the speed, but I have copied several things to and from, and even program from it (visual C#) and never noticed a problem speed wise. I recommended it to my boss and he got one too.

Cons: The loop it gives you to put it on a keyring is pretty small, so I had to first put it on a tiny ring, then connect that one to my main ring. Not really a big deal, but I thought I'd mention it.

Overall Review: A coworker suggested keeping it in your wallet, instead of on a ring. That can work too, but with its small size, I would worry it would fall out or I'd forget, and leave it connected to a computer, then lose track of it.

What can you say?

Patriot 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF2GMUSB(Green)
Patriot 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF2GMUSB(Green)

Pros: 2GB of storage, good price. What else can you say?

Cons: It does slide out of its rubber casing, so it might not be best if you want to wear it on a keychain.
