Pros: I can't say at the moment.
Cons: Was DOA. would not post
Overall Review: When I receive a new one. I will post a more comprehensive review.
Pros: Easy to install, not a coaster yet using Nero.
Included software for viewing Blu Ray discs is ok.
Cons: The software is just ok. what do you expect from an OEM version. It works for viewing BR movies Recommend puchasing 3rd party software (Arcsoft TMT3 or Full version of Cyberlink DVD suite 7)
No Sata cable or screws.
Overall Review: Make sure that your system is HDCP compliant BEFORE you purchase any Blu-ray player or Burner.
You can check with Cyberlink's Blu-ray adviser
Pros: The picture loooks incredible as good if not better than my 2yr old samsung 46" lcd tv.
FULL HD. I put a movie my Blu-ray burner and was astounded at the picture quality. Clear, Crisp and Vibrant. Excellent monitor.
Cons: No HDMI connection. A little difficult to attach to stand.
Overall Review: A HDMI connection would of been nice but isn't necessary for my pourposes. Will be getting another soon for wife's system.
Pros: Good sound, easy install.
Drivers are small and not bloated like other sound cards.
Overall Review: Does not support 64bit OS
Pros: Does exactly what is needs to do, play Blue Ray and DVD's. Picture Quality Connected this player via HDMI. It's 2.0 out of the box no upgrade needed. Bitstreams all latest audio compression standards. up-convert DVD also look really good.
Unless you want to consider boot time which is faster than other Blu-ray players I resarched, but still a little slow compaired to a standard DVD Players.
Overall Review: Remember to purchace a HDMI cable.
I have a 3yr old Samsun 46" LCD TV. I was shocked to see how good the picture quality is with this Blu-ray player. a Consumer Reports best buy. I researched at least 10 different players from all manufactures before purchasing the Panisonic DMP-55k.
Pros: A good starter kit.
Keeps 9850 Phenom OC 3.2 @ 35C idle and 42C load.
Cons: All barbs are molded plastic (not able to change)
Clamps are cheap. I changed them out for worm clamps.
pump and reservoir is a all-in-one unit.
Overall Review: When I didn't have it OCed the temps were 26C idle 33C load. Don't get me wong the only reason I gave it 3 eggs was the cons. If the barbs were metal and the pump and reservoir were seperate units it would get 5 egg rating. I works well. TAKE YOUR TIME Setting it up and testing for leaks.
Pros: Works great. I Reset the timings to 4-4-4-12 works fine. No issues at all
Overall Review: I ordered another pair from here a week ago and it still isn't here. The wharehouse is 3-4 Hour drive from me. a little disapointed. This is the 1st time I have had an issue with NewEgg since I started shopping here in 2001 and several thousand dollars.
Pros: The board is great for cooling purposes. I have an AMD Phenom 9850 OC to 3.2 GHz @ 35C Idle 42C full load. Liquid cooled. Easy setup. Board layout is nicely designed. The sound is better than expected for onboard. No need for sound card has quite a bit of features. Has 2 IDE controllers for a total of 4 IDE devices. Overall nice board and would recommend it to anyone who seeks a board for a good price/features.
Cons: Needed to update the BIOS & Mobo Drivers - Not really a Con

Cons: Absolutly NONE
Overall Review: This is the best processor AMD has released in a while. If this this is a hint of things to come the the next gen "Phenom" will be Phenominal. Been in the industry for over 25 yrs. Asus M2N32 SLI-Deluxe WIreless, 2 EVGA 768-P2-N881-AR GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit, 2 GB GSkill DDR 800 (4-4-4-12) 1 WD 150 GB Raptor , 1 HITACHI 1 TB
Pros: It works. nice layout. 2 pata 4 sata
Cons: At the low end of Asus AM2 boards
The BIOS on this mobo will NOT let you do much for overclocking, no voltage control over RAM or CPU.
Overall Review: I got this board for my niece who wouldn't stop pestering me after she spilled something in her system and toasted the board will last her until the next gen of amd arrives (hopefully)
Pros: Excellent air flow. The fans on the side keeps everything around 28C and quiet. Large size makes working inside easy. Tooless design makes install simplistic
Cons: The manual is virually useless and the tech support is nonexsistant
Overall Review: With the the exception of the techsupport I would buy another one of these
Pros: Crisp clear picture, no dead/stuck pixels. The colors, brightness are outstanding. DVI connection
Cons: Their internal speakers leave much to be desired, But who uses them anyway
Overall Review: Great for gaming.
Pros: Heatsink well designed, fan is not
Cons: The fan is flimsy plastic, Heat sink isn't easy to install.
my temps went throught the roof at idle after 30 minutes
Overall Review: I would not buy this heatsink until they improved the fan.
Pros: low Cas 2.5 3-3-6. Good Performance/Price ratio
Quality, Performance, Value what more could you want.
Cons: They're in my wife system and not mine :-(
Other than that NONE.

running 2 Graphics (SLI)
2 Burners (1 blu-ray) 2 TB HDD's.
4 GB DDR 800 (XMS) With out any problems.
Pros: Works as specified with specificly layout of mobos. Check with Coolmaster install maual before purchase (see cons) keeps my 6400+ nicly chilled on ASUS CROSSHAIR AM2
Cons: WILL NOT WORK WITH A ASUS M2N32 DELUXE SLI Mobo. It blocks the first 16x PCI slot and DDR.
Overall Review: I origanally purchased it for my M2N32 DELUXE SLI. That was my fault If I had know that it wouldn't fit I would of gone with another model.
