Most Favorable Review

Used for a mini-gamer

Antec ISK600 Black Aluminum / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Antec ISK600 Black Aluminum / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: Handling heat issues fine for a gamer PC. Handles a full size power supply though it would be wise to look for as compact of one as you can manage. Might also be wise to go with a modular power supply (though I didn't and its fine). Looks good too

Cons: Things are a little tight inside, but you expect that with a machine this size. And be careful which optical drives you get. This box can't have a full-size one.

Overall Review: I'd stick with SSDs in this box. The positioning for HD's is rather odd and may not even be realistic given cable management. The HD's cage over the top is removable (thank goodness) and its just in the way.

Most Critical Review

Low quality mouse

RAZER Naga Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming Mouse
RAZER Naga Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming Mouse

Pros: The numeric keypad under your thumb is great for mmo games

Cons: My razer naga stopped working within months of purchase. While the buttons worked, the mouse stopped tracking. Don't waste your money on this low-quality piece of garbage. For the additional expense, it should be of better quality.

Manually choosing 5GHz fixes connection

Edimax CV-7438nDM Dual-band Wireless Bridge, Wireless Speaker Adapter for AirPlay Music Streaming, Converts Wired Smart TV / Blu-Ray / Gaming Console to Wireless Network, CD-less Setup by SmartPhone
Edimax CV-7438nDM Dual-band Wireless Bridge, Wireless Speaker Adapter for AirPlay Music Streaming, Converts Wired Smart TV / Blu-Ray / Gaming Console to Wireless Network, CD-less Setup by SmartPhone

Pros: Cost, dual-band, and airplay. As mentioned in the previous review, 5GHz connections don't work, but following the advise of the tech support response finally did get it to connect. I had to try about three of the channels they suggested before it work. Airport routers select optimal channels automatically so I'm not excited with the manual override, though.

Cons: The manual should really stated the 5GHz limitations.

Sub'd in for the Comcast rental modem - no problems

Linksys DPC3008 Advanced DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: Hooked it up, turned it on, and - after Comcast did its setup - has been running just fine ever since. Performing great on my 60mb/s+ service.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I'm really happy that this installed so easy and it delivering the same performance as my previous rental modem. Now I get to save some money.

Used in mini-itx gamer

Thermaltake Tough Power TP-750P 750 W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Thermaltake Tough Power TP-750P 750 W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Quiet. Plenty of power and connections. compact.

Cons: not modular, so its a cable octopus. but, otherwise, no real "cons"

Overall Review: Using this in a gamer pc with a z87/haswell build in the Antec ISK600 case. Its probably overkill, but it was a good fit in this case and was on sale :).

Perfectly good gamer processor

Intel Core i5-4430 - Core i5 4th Gen Haswell Quad-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 1150 84W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I54430
Intel Core i5-4430 - Core i5 4th Gen Haswell Quad-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 1150 84W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I54430

Pros: Stable (not much surprise there). Just fine for gaming. Cheaper than most the other Haswell alternatives.

Cons: Can't over clock it

Overall Review: I'm not big into over clocking, so I don't care that I can't do so. I'm running it with DDR3-2400 on a mini-itx m/b. So far, its done just fine for all the games I've tried. And, it saved me some money over the more expensive "K" processors

Nice set of monitoring tools

All three units were easy to set up and worked right away. Versus some of the other home automation devices I've setup, these were pretty easy (and have continued to work!)
