Pretty good

SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 500GB SATA III V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-76E500B/AM

Pros: Easy to install. Currently running Windows 10 for me.

Cons: Nothing really. Wish it had a higher capacity.

Overall Review: Good bang for your buck. Speed and capacity at a bargain.

Most Critical Review

It hurts

PLANTRONICS .Audio 355 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
PLANTRONICS .Audio 355 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset

Pros: It works. Looks nice.

Cons: This thing makes my ears hurt. Sometimes I need to stop and just take em off. The ear cushions are just plain uncomfortable. After buying this back in 09/2010 the right speaker has just crapped out on me. I won't recommend this and wish I hadn't skimped out on price for a better headset.

Overall Review: I gave it 2 eggs because it worked fine (discomfort aside) up until it broke. I did drop it a few times but nothing major and cheaper headsets have lasted longer.

Simple to use and easy to setup

Pros: The title says it all. I use it to put my laptop on it and my keyboard underneath when not in use.

Cons: Not adjustable but honestly that could be a pro since its so simple to setup.

Overall Review: Looks nice. Easy to setup and use.

Great for the price I bought it!

ideazon RED1000 Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Laser 3200 dpi REAPER Edge Gaming Mouse

Pros: DPI switching on the fly. Two extra buttons. Great feel. Smooth mouse wheel.

Cons: Now here's a few thing that irked me. Skin/dust particles accumulate on the surface of the mouse. I often bump the mouse onto my keyboard causing me to press the lower thumb button (my own dumb fault.) And the DPI can only be increased and not decreased. For this reason the DPI should only have 3 options not 4 (My own opinion.)

Overall Review: My hands are dainty but others with gorilla hands may accidentally press the DPI button while gaming. I've done it a few times in the heat of intense gaming.

Alright

Plantronics S12 Telephone Headset System (65145-01)
Plantronics S12 Telephone Headset System (65145-01)

Pros: All the features are nice, mute button, volume control etc. The sound quality is nice. The headset rest is a great touch. Easy installation.

Cons: I mainly bought this for the sound dampening qualities and in this regards I knock an egg off. I work at as tech support and I work at home. My customers can still here my cockatoo squawking downstairs and a room away. The bird isn't that loud. When using the headset function after a few hours my ear will hurt and I need to switch. When using the earset it hangs loosely and I constantly need to adjust it. The cord gets tangled ALL the time.

Overall Review: It sure beat my $20 dollar headset from walmart but I was expecting better background sound dampening.

Blank Screen

G.SKILL 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5S-2GBNT

Pros: Works fine by itself with no other sticks plugged in.

Cons: When I use another stick along with this one Windows won't start up. Bios won't start at all. Instead right after turning on my PC I get an empty black screen. Absolutely blank.

Overall Review: I've memtested both sticks and got no errors. Both sticks are the same exact type (DDR2-800 PC2 6400) and the total amount of RAM (4GB) from both sticks is the amount my mobo can handle. Either stick works fine on its own. Before I bought this new stick I was running 2 of the same sticks (one of which I'm using along with the new one). Only things I can think of is I need to configure my mobo which I don't know how or that the 2 sticks are incompatible.
