Great Glass

Nikon 2137 SLR Lenses AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Lens Black
Nikon 2137 SLR Lenses AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D Lens Black

Pros: The Nifty Fifty! Great Glass, fast aperture at F1.8, fast AF through screw drive, great Bokeh!. Been using this on a D200. IF your using this on a DSLR DX format with screw drive (D1,D2,D50,D70,D80,D90,D100,D200,D300,D7000) Do note that it is actually a 75mm Focal Length, due to not being on a full frame camera, since this was designed mostly for Film use. For a DX camera I suggest 35mm DX lens. You can still use it, but your not getting its full potential as a lens, also it will not work as good in close range as the 35mm will (I own both) Also works great with Reverse Lens Macro Photography (look it up!)

Cons: No Cons, just do your research when buy it for your camera, make sure its compatible. IF you have a cheaper Nikon with no AF motor, get the 35mm DX.

Overall Review: Best use, Film and FX format CMOS sensors.

Most Critical Review

OK, but really really slow

ADATA Classic Series 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model AC802-4G-RBB
ADATA Classic Series 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model AC802-4G-RBB

Pros: Cheap, no cap to loose.

Cons: Very, very slow, I was maxing out at 1.7MB/Sec on WIN7 trying to transfer 2GB of wedding pics to it, was going to take over 1 hour, this is just really bad. For a few bucks more you can get much better sticks. This is sad, I own an older AData stick that they discontinued and it is much, much better.

Overall Review: Spend a few extra bucks, get a Xporter.

I don't know why they still sell these

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None

Cons: Backblaze just published their report on the failure rate of 4000 of these drives, and its at 32%. To keep that in perspective the also have 2500 Hitachi's going as well, but they only had a failure rate of 4% which is much better. Seagate needs to pull these drives from the market immediately.

Overall Review: More than likely Seagate had a rush to make these after the floods to corner the market, however in doing so they are lemons for sure.

Good Camera, old tech

Nikon D5100 CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens
Nikon D5100 CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens

Pros: Cheap

Cons: old tech

Overall Review: They are trying to sell these now since the 3200 is coming out in a matter of weeks, once it does, you can get the 3200 at almost the same price as this. I would wait and get the 3200 and get a camera that's 2x better, or, wait until the 3200 is out, and the price on the 5100 plummets.

Love it

EPSON Perfection V30 B11B193141 4800 dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Interface Flatbed Scanner
EPSON Perfection V30 B11B193141 4800 dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Interface Flatbed Scanner

Pros: Absolutly love this little guy. Scans fast and easy, and is very high quality. I use it to scan photo's mostly and have done some great resto projects with it. the 4800dpi is perfect. its also slim and fits on my desk nicely.

Cons: honestly there isn't any. Wish the bed was bigger, but I knew the size when I got it.

Overall Review: Buy it!

Decent for the price

Fosmon Multi-Color E27 LED Light Bulb with Remote Control
Fosmon Multi-Color E27 LED Light Bulb with Remote Control

Pros: Cheap considering other brands. IR remote works with multiple bulbs at once, which is what I wanted, so you get even fades among multiple bulbs. I got 2 to fit inside tall slim paper lamps for a wedding decor to pump out red, and it will do just that fine.

Cons: OK, here's where it gets bad, you cant really program the bulb at all, meaning you cant set it to transition or flash between specific colors, its all preset. Flash is just R-G-B over and over, and the fades are through all colors. Strobe doesn't do anything but switch back and forth each time you press the button.

Overall Review: OK for a budget bulb for decor to switch between solid colors only.
