Pros: I've had no issues with this router at all. It has been my home-network backbone for about a year now, feeding wireless N to my laptops and a Patriot media streamer, as well as wireless G to a PS3. My network has pretty heavy data transfer loads, what with moving my media server files multiple times in the past year. No problems at all.
Pros: plug'n'play, 802.11n, great small profile,
Cons: 802.11n nowhere near the 300Mbps advertised, still faster than g though.
It's a bit wide so has trouble fitting in some USB slots that aren't clear on either side of the slot.
Pros: Sturdy construction, easily modded, internal HD, accepts 802.11g/n dongles, streams 1080p with no stutters.
Cons: Had issues setting up network shares and installing new firmware, but the online forum community quickly helped me figure it out.
Pros: Slot-load (obviously).
Fits the Norco RPC-4220 like a glove.
Drive works, and is the best price for a slot-load I've found.
Cons: None that I could find.
Overall Review: Screw holes are not at same height on each side, therefore wont fit my 3.25 bay converters. This could be standard, I'm not well experienced with slim dvd drives.
Pros: Fast, cheap, 4gb per stick... lots of memory.
Cons: 2 of the 4 sticks I bought didn't work. wont' pass memtest, and caused 2 days of trouble trying to complete my new build.
Overall Review: Motherboard: ASRock 870 EXTREME3
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz
Memory: OCZ Gold 4x 4GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Graphics: XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870
Storage: OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE60G 2.5" 60GB
Pros: Optics are excellent quality, great resolution options, good response, good mic pickup, requires little tech knowledge to set up.
Overall Review: I purchased two of these, and they are both working great.
Logitech has always been good quality for me.
Pros: Works perfectly as advertised. My house has cinder-block walls so I cannot use wireless, and this works reliably for my HTPC and PS3, which are upstairs and on the opposite side of the house from my router.
Overall Review: I have a 40 year old house, and the signal has to travel though at least 150ft of wiring. I am able to stream Netflix movies, movies from my personal PC to the HTPC, and play PS3 all without discernible lag.
Pros: Works as advertised.
Cons: I won't take an egg away since I knew it when I got it, but it takes up a USB port for power... wouldn't it have been just as easy to make an adapter for the power cord?
Pros: Small, unobtrusive and does not irritate the ear after prolonged wear. Easily recharged. Fits either ear.
Cons: I purchased 4 of these, and on mine the main button stopped clicking when depressed; it still answers and hangs up correctly, but the only way I know the button was pressed is from the tone in the earpiece, as the button does not move like it did when I first got the device.
Overall Review: Audio quality is acceptable, however when driving, about half the people I talk to complain there is a lot of background noise. I can hear them fine unless there is a lot of road noise. Good product for the price though, that's why I gave it 4 eggs.
Pros: Good fast memory; 3 out of 4 sticks bought were good. Dropped the egg-count down to 3 because of the bad stick, performance is good though... 5.9 across the board for Vista.
Cons: 1 stick failed MemTest86+ v2.0 after 15 minutes of testing.
Overall Review: Glad I got it at the price I did... it's 15 more now! -- Biostar A770 A2+ motherboard; AMD Phenom 9850; GeForce 9800GTX PCIe 2.0
Pros: No Dead pixels for both LCD's I ordered. Everything about it is good. Crisp colors, good contrast, very good black colors. Only minimal bleeding on the edge of the screen, which is only visible in the middle of the night with all other lights turned off. Good response time as well, I game constantly so that is important.
Cons: Stand seems to be a bit hard to adjust the tilt on, and as a result the viewing angle is not optimal unless you prop up the back (raised desk shelf for the monitor to sit on). It would sit perfectly on a normal desk.
Overall Review: I wish I had bought 3, so I could give one to my wife and still keep something other than my ooooold 19" regular LCD as my dual screen.
Pros: Simply does what it's supposed to do. No problems installing a RAID 1 setup with a couple of these. Fast access times, no data loss that I can detect.
Cons: None that I can find so far.
Overall Review: I bought 4 of these total. All arrived in good working order.
Pros: Crisp, clear picture. No dead pixels on arrival. Monitor has worked well for gaming and every day use for almost a year now. Hanns.G makes a good product.
Cons: Speakers aren't very good.
Overall Review: Don't buy integrated speakers unless you are strapped for space on your desk.
Pros: Good airflow, internal hard drive bay faces the side of the case, good looks, easy secure CD Drive hard drive and expansion slot connectors.
Cons: Blue light is a bit bright, but that's good if you want a night-light.
Overall Review: I've bought 4 of these cases in the past year, making computers for my family and friends. Best case ever, by far.
Pros: Corsair yet again is reliable and fast. Can't go wrong with them.
Pros: Speed as advertised.
Cons: Matched pair was not recognized by my motherboard, a GIGABYTE GA-M55SLI-S4 Socket AM2. After install my system continuously reset or hung in the middle of different operations. Did memory test and came up with bad sectors in one of the two RAM sticks. I surmise the faulty stick was not only causeing the system crashes, but also not allowing the motherboard to utilize the matched pair.
Overall Review: Newegg was fast with the RMA request and no problems there. However, the return process took 10 days, shipping itself has taken 5.
Pros: No dead pixels strait out of the box.
Very bright image, great quality.
Speakers are great for simple use, and surprisingly clear for small inset speakers.
Cons: None that I can find.
