Good

Hitachi GST Deskstar H3IK20003272SP (0S02861) 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail

Pros: I ordered 3, received all retail HDS723020BLA642 64MB cache, SATA 6.0Gb/s. Ran all 3 through badblocks testing, 3 passes, all checked out perfect

Cons: None

Overall Review: Finally hard drive prices are coming back down

Most Critical Review

Dead just after a month

SAMSUNG 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HXMU050DA/M22 Piano Black

Pros: Looks nice, compact, USB-powered

Cons: Dead after 5 weeks

Too slow

Logitech Harmony One Advanced Remote Control
Logitech Harmony One Advanced Remote Control

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Keypresses are too slow, the remote will cache button presses and continue moving well after you're done pressing them. The software is cumbersome and slow to use. There are too many profiles for my devices in their database, I had to try several until I found one that I liked. The remote recognizes when you pick it up, but the component that does this makes a rattling noise.

Overall Review: Touchscreen is really not all that useful compared to hard buttons.

Noisy fan!

ASUS AT3N7A-I Intel Atom 330 (1M Cache, 1.6GHz, Dual-Core) NVIDIA ION Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU Combo
ASUS AT3N7A-I Intel Atom 330 (1M Cache, 1.6GHz, Dual-Core) NVIDIA ION Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU Combo

Pros: ION chipset

Cons: Ridiculously noisy fan. Sounds like a hairdryer. Also, you can change the BIOS bootup image, but you can't stop the intel logo from getting overlaid on top of your graphic.

Overall Review: Trying to get ASUS to fix BIOS issues is a waste of time.
