So far good

MR. COFFEE TM75 3 Quart Iced Tea Maker
MR. COFFEE TM75 3 Quart Iced Tea Maker

Pros: Makes tea quickly and has a good sized container

Cons: Not as strong as I like and only holds a little water in the heater for the tea itself.

Overall Review: I have not had any leaks with mine but that seems to be a common issue. I wish others would post how/where it leaks as I don;t see any problems with mine. Also soem report that putting a little ice in the final container helps keep it from cracking as the heat when it first come out can hurt it in the long run. My only issue is the tea does not seem that strong. So I would use the sgtrong setting and adjust with water as even the strong setting is not that strong.

Most Critical Review

Good for HTPC but...

ASUS GeForce GT 640 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card GT640-1GD3-L
ASUS GeForce GT 640 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card GT640-1GD3-L

Pros: Card is smaller so should fit in some smaller cases. Runs cool at default settings. Good HTPC card.

Cons: Only has DDR3 ram which holds the card back (ddr5 is better) Heatsink is smaller so overclocking will cause it to run warm. Price is about $30-40 to much for this level of card. No low profile bracket.

Overall Review: The GT640 and GTX650 are the same GPU but one has DDR3 the other DDR5. Spend the extra $10-20 and get the GTX650. Better heatsink and much faster ram.

Team X Series 32GB Flash Drive Model TX12132GR01
Team X Series 32GB Flash Drive Model TX12132GR01

Pros: Has soft feel case

Cons: Slow write speed. RMA requires YOU to ship to tawain.

Overall Review: Save yourself the headache and buy a faster and more reliable flash drive.

Great card with 1 short coming

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870 MYST. Edition (Tahiti LE) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card (UEFI Ready) AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV3E
PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870 MYST. Edition (Tahiti LE) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card (UEFI Ready) AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV3E

Pros: Great performance for the price. Get a 7900 series, Tahiti, based GPU for a 7800 price.

Cons: Card runs hot and loud. The heatsink is barly good enough for default settings. I would not overclock this card unless the heatsink is upgraded.

Overall Review: Dollar for dollar its one of the best deals out there. It does use more power and produces more noise and heat but if you don't overclock it should be ok.

Does as listed

Patriot Signature 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model PSD34G13332S
Patriot Signature 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model PSD34G13332S

Pros: Low price. Runs at listed specs.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Installed this in my AMD Netbook. Came up at its listed speed and I have not had any errors or problems. Its memory, either it works or not, and this works.

Good but has its flaws

ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Good layout and heatsinks cool well. Accepts bulldozer when it comes out.

Cons: Having issues with USB when trying to wake from sleep. I hope this will be fixed in a Bios update. Right now I can't use the system sleep function as my USB mouse/keyboard will not work to wake. Does not overclock as well as my older Gigabyte board. If you want max overclocks then look at gigabyte. But I run mostly at default speeds so not a major issue for me.

Overall Review: Good all round board for people that need a well equiped single GPU board. If you don't need the extra ports then you can opt for a cheaper board.
