Pros: Arrived in a timely manner. Large enough so that I was able to attach to 3 wall studs. Had all the hardware I could ask for and then some. Installed easily enough.
Cons: No built in level, but was not an inconvenience.
Overall Review: My tv is 110 lbs, this is suppose to hold 220 lbs. So it should support my tv with no problems. (It is so far). I've not had any problems tilting either up or down, however I have had help when doing so.
Pros: Good price,$10.00 off normal, lots of room, free shipping. Came very fast, (as usual).
Cons: Nothing so far.
Overall Review: If WD gets their terabyte or higher HD,s up to this level of customer satisfaction, would like to get one of them.
Pros: Nice look and feel. Easy install, just plug the receiver into a usb port and it does the rest. Has very good range. Mouse seems to have an idle mode where it flickers the led, I can only assume this is so it doesn't have a constant drain on the battery. Deffinitely like the off/on switches.
Cons: Only con I can think of so far is I can't use the middle button/scroll wheel as a double click. I have a logitech TrackMan and I've gotten accustomed to the middle double click. Not a big problem and I wouldn't consider it a deal breaker. I took one egg off for that otherwise I would've given all 5 eggs.
Overall Review: Was surprised to find out mouse and keyboard only need 1 AA battery each. I received a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse for xmas. Absolutely terrible range. Wireless in name only. Even with the receiver against the keyboard I still get warnings that the signal strength is very low. Even with new batteries. It goes thru batteries at an accelerated rate. Supposed to last up to 6 months. I've been lucky to get a month. Has no off/on switch.
Pros: At 50 feet it was plenty long enough to run from my router, in my basement, to my tv upstairs with room to spare. Receiving internet tv and movies with excellent quality.
Cons: As someone already pointed out, it's a real bear unplugging it from the lan jack on my computer. But then, how often do you really intend to move your computer around.
Overall Review: For the money, this is a great value. Cost me more for the shipping.
Pros: Very small, plugged into my line out on my computer with no problems. Did what I wanted it to.
Cons: None at this time.
Overall Review: I hooked a computer up to my 65" tv to watch tv and movies over the internet. Used the "SVHS" jack on my video card. Was able to use this adapter to run to my tv audio input.
Pros: Big heat sink. Got it with 5 dollars off regular price with free shipping. Easily twice the size of the stock one that came with my E8500. Very easy to install, much better than that push-pin fiasco intel came up with. All third party heat sinks should copy this design.
Overall Review: I'd like to see if Dynatron makes a cooler for the 478 socket. I tried a different cooler; had a much bigger heatsink, but actually caused the temp of my 2.8 ghz Prescott to rise considerably over the stock cooler.
Pros: Very nice high chrome finish. Very sturdy. Good protection for my fans.
Overall Review: I'd made some clear sides for my computers and was using some window screening as a temp cover for my side fans. These add a very nice professional look.
Pros: Fan looks pink, but emits what I think is a very nice RED glow. I installed several like these in my new build; liked them so much I bought 5 more for my older computer. Put them front, side and back. Really added a nice glow to my systems.
Cons: Can't think of any. For their size they move a tolerable amount of air, don't make a lot of noise and were reasonably priced.
Overall Review: I did not have clear sides on my computers. Went to a local supply store (Like Home Depot, but not) and purchased some sheets of plexiglass. Cut to size and it really dressed up both of my computers. Was even able to make a cooling duct for my CU out of the scraps.
Pros: Very bright, very red. Looks pink in the picture, but when powered up gives off very nice red glow. Like the sleeve on the power cable. I don't think they are very noisy, but that's probably a subjective thing. They do move a fair amount of air.
Cons: Not much of a con; the power leads could be a few inches longer. Had a little trouble getting one of them to the power connector.
Overall Review: I bought two of these for my new computer. Liked them so much I ordered two more for my older computer.
Pros: Pretty red fan. Heatsink appeared bigger than my stock one.
Cons: I turned on my computer, running an Intel Prescott 2.8ghz not OC'd. My cpu temp was 33 degrees celcius. Put on the new heatsink and fan. When I checked my temp, it was 60 degrees celsius. I couldn't believe my eyes. Removed heatsink, cleaned off the stock grease, put on Arctic Silver 5. Made no difference, still running at 60 degrees celcius. Put my stock fan back on, temp dropped back to 33 degrees celcius. That's almost 50 degrees farenheit hotter. Would return but not worth it.
Overall Review: Maybe I was doing something wrong. Can't imagine what. I took my old heatsink off, put on new one, temp soared. When I took the new heatsink off, I could see that the grease was in good contact with my cpu. Put old heatsink on, temp dropped. Unless someone knows something I don't, I could not reccommend this heatsink and fan at this time.
Pros: Came on time. Worked fine. Put it in an EVGA 132-YW-E178-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i. BIOS reads it as 800mhz, will try adjusting settings.
Overall Review: Looks really cool in my case. Unfortunately I did not opt for a case with a clear side. My loss.
Pros: Came on time. Plugged everything in, started up with no problems. Had no problems setting the bios. Only gave 4 eggs because of length of ownership.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Couple of minor annoyances, did not feel the urge to call them cons. My case, and all other cases I've dealt with has a 3 pin power led connector with the center pin empty. The board has 2 pins close together. Fortunately the connection on the MB has room for the led connector to overhang at the edge. I moved one of the pins to the middle (wrong one, led still would not light up) switched them around and everything is fine now. Also, have a speaker in my case but the speaker is on board. Wouldv'e liked to use the case speaker.
