Lightning Fast

SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 2TB SATA III Samsung V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-76E2T0B/AM
SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 2TB SATA III Samsung V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-76E2T0B/AM

Pros: --Fassssst!

Cons: --Bought the "No hardware included" version, and so needed to buy hardware to install it on my new rig. It would've been helpful if they'd made that difference clear pre-purchase.

Overall Review: This is my second Samsung SSD, and it's possibly even faster than the 1TB Samsung SSD I bought around 6 years ago; as I'm comparing it with the same 1TB Seagate 6k rpm HDD I use mainly for storage and backup.

Most Critical Review

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Don't know, unfortunately. Dead out of the box.

Cons: Defective out of the box. RMA'd Specifically, cpu fan operational; but all other power switches dead.

Overall Review: Disappointed. Bought it as a replacement for an older ASRock 970 Extreme4 that got wiggy (loss of mouse and keyboard function) after 18months or so of use, when the USB hub gave out. Conclusion: next time invest in a better quality MOBO

Perfect for low-visibility living room setting.

GE 2 Outlet 2 USB Surge Protector, 12W/2.4A Total USB, 10 ft Braided Extension Cord, Flat Plug, for iPhone 11/Pro/Max/XS/XR/X/8, iPad Pro, Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel, 250 Joules, White/Gray, 38432

Pros: --Small size; only 2 power outlets, 2 USB's --White color; blends well with carpet. Black wouldn't've been good.

Cons: --Small Size; only 2 power outlets, 2 USB's

Overall Review: We got this instead of the normal 4-8 outlet power strip to not make too big of a visual impact next to the living room couch, for phones and iPads. Work great so far.

Inexpensive USB Soundbar

DELL 318-2885 AC511 Stereo USB Sound Bar
DELL 318-2885 AC511 Stereo USB Sound Bar

Pros: --Low Price --With my SoundblasterX card gives medium-quality sound (as a rough contrast with my high fidelity headphones) --Long, Flat shape perfect for my needs

Cons: --Has mounting lugs on top designed to only work with Dell monitors.

Overall Review: I would've preferred a Bar that needed only a single 3.5mm audio jack...but Who am I kidding?

Really Like it So Far

AOC G2590FX 25" (24.5" viewable) Frameless Gaming Monitor, Full HD 1920 x 1080, 1ms, 144Hz, G-SYNC Compatible + AMD FreeSync, 96% sRGB Coverage, Low Input Lag, DisplayPort/HDMI/VGA, VESA
AOC G2590FX 25" (24.5" viewable) Frameless Gaming Monitor, Full HD 1920 x 1080, 1ms, 144Hz, G-SYNC Compatible + AMD FreeSync, 96% sRGB Coverage, Low Input Lag, DisplayPort/HDMI/VGA, VESA

Pros: --Crisper graphics than the 3 year-old Samsung 24" it replaced--but not by much. --HDMI input. Which is great as my GTX2080S is HDMI only. --Borderless top and sides reduces overall size of screen nicely. --Good for Gaming. I primarily use it as a gaming monitor; Fallout4, Battletech look great. --Good Price for a mid-tier monitor.

Cons: --Only HDMI --No sound outlet --Last year's model (2019; which is probably why price was low).

Overall Review: It was a good buy. The 1ms and 144GHz. really says it all if you want it for gaming. Haven't yet bothered with G-Sync; and don't know if it'd make a difference

I like it

StarTech.com MUHSMF1M 3.5mm 4 Position TRRS Headset Extension Cable
StarTech.com MUHSMF1M 3.5mm 4 Position TRRS Headset Extension Cable

Pros: Just perfect for my needs. The standard length of headphone cords is just too short; this extension cord does the trick.

Overall Review: Good product overall.

Great Couch Mouse Pad

I've been looking for a mousepad suitable for gaming on the couch. Found it! Got the smallest model--8"x10"--which is semi-rigid, with a slightly raised squishy top that results in very fine mouse control for FPS games like Fallout 4, where precision is essential.

Doesn't track too well

Tracks poorly; at least compared with the much cheaper optical mouse I replaced it with, that worked fine atop a mousepad on my futon couch. This $40 Razor needs to be on perfectly 100% flat surface to work properly.
