Most Favorable Review

Excellent

Sunbeam LL-B Blue LASER LED
Sunbeam LL-B Blue LASER LED

Pros: Very bright and the blue lighting almost looks like UV lighting in my case.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Velcro mounting hasn't failed yet like some other lights I've bought in the past. If it lasts past the first week its generally going to stick!

Most Critical Review

Horrible Layout

MSI P7N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI P7N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Fancy copper heatpipe. No jumpers or card needs to be flipped for the board to run in SLI.

Cons: IDE ports at bottom of board, out of reach of my optical drives. SATA connectors are sideways and harder to connect in a small or crowded case. Only 2 PCI slots and one is unusable if you're running in SLI with big video heatsinks. CMOS reset button on the back panel of the motherboard easy to hit accidentally when removing or connecting USB devices. There is an audio connector placed right behind the primary PCI-E 16x slot that interferes with the seating of one of my graphics cards. Luckily I have two different brands that are shaped slightly differently.

Overall Review: Doesn't run any faster than a P6N board that has a better layout. Get the P6N. Newegg is the best ever!

Better than expected

AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR

Pros: Some reviews say that you can't use both inputs at once but you actually can, just not in the Aver software. We use this for a podcast and input HDMI and composite video at the same time and it works great. HDMI is really awesome quality and there aren't any other cards out there at this price that do HDMI in.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I'd love a card with 2 HDMI inputs but I guess you always have the option of buying another card.

worked like a charm

GIGABYTE GA-P43-ES3G LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-P43-ES3G LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: *Good Bargain

Cons: *Doesn't feature some higher end features, but its a mid range priced board so you can't expect that

Overall Review: Bought this to replace a well used (3 years?!?) MSI p6n that I originally bought with my Q6600. Worked with no problem and has some more features in BIOS compared to my old board.

Failed after 6 months

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD642JJ 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD642JJ 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Large capacity for cheap

Cons: Failed after 6 months of operation. Never had a hard drive failure before, maybe I've just been lucky. Failure after 6 months just seems to be worse than just luck, though. More like poor manufacturing.

Overall Review: Luckily I was running this in RAID 1 with a WD Caviar and none of my data was lost.

solved my network problems

D-Link DGS-2208 Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Green Ethernet Switch
D-Link DGS-2208 Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Green Ethernet Switch

Pros: This switch is simply amazing! My home was networked through a wireless router with 100 Mbps speed, but this switch handles the traffic more smoothly and then passes only the internet traffic on to the router.

Cons: None.
