Most Favorable Review

Great Charger

Tekkeon USB Power Adapter MP1600
Tekkeon USB Power Adapter MP1600

Pros: Great charger. I'm using it to charge my Sidekick Slide which is something my XBox 360 and my powered USB hub could not do unless the XBox or Computer were turned on. This is odd in the sense that both can charge my Zune while powered off. Anyhow, comes with an adapter for everything that was ever rechargeable which is nifty.

Cons: I guess the short little retractable USB cable it comes with is kinda crummy. Not much else to say.

Overall Review: This thing will charge pretty much anything that charges via USB cable as long as you have the original USB cable to the oddball stuff they don't include adapters for.

Most Critical Review

agp 4x?

BFG Tech GeForce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card BFGW6600GTOC
BFG Tech GeForce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card BFGW6600GTOC

Pros: I suppose it would run most of what I throw at it at playable speeds and settings.

Cons: Well, when you look at the picture, it clearly shows you a card that would be compatible with both a 2x/4x slot and a 4x/8x. The card I opened 10 minutes ago is only compatible with a 4x/8x slot.

Overall Review: I can't really bash the card so much as whats shown on the webpage for this item. I specifically picked this card because in the picture, I see what I needed, but when i get the thing, "hey guess what, we mailed you something so very slightly different, hope you don't notice."

Mousepad

Ideazon Counter-Strike FragMat Gaming Mouse Pad
Ideazon Counter-Strike FragMat Gaming Mouse Pad

Pros: Great mousepad. The surface is pretty nice, not your typical spongy clothy surface.

Cons: Eh.... I don't know... the edges are rough on my wrist? That's about it.

Overall Review: Tracks just fine (mouse responds accurately).

Cheap Flash

ADATA 2GB MicroSD Flash Card Model Micro SD 2G
ADATA 2GB MicroSD Flash Card Model Micro SD 2G

Pros: Great price, good quality

Cons: Access time?

Overall Review: It's a tad slow when putting music on and taking it off, but it's not a big deal unless you're trying to put songs on it while dodging bullets.

AVS Gear AZA-SPK-USB1 4 Watts 2.0 Portable Aluminum USB Speakers
AVS Gear AZA-SPK-USB1 4 Watts 2.0 Portable Aluminum USB Speakers

Pros: Cheap, Self powered.

Cons: Given its low price tag, nothing.

Overall Review: Don't expect a whole lot from these. I bought them because a spare computer of mine fried a Sound Blaster PCI card, and the onboard sound is dead. These are plug and play, and they sound quite alright for the price.

Solid DDR2

CORSAIR XMS2 1GB DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Desktop Memory Model CM2X1024-5400C4
CORSAIR XMS2 1GB DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Desktop Memory Model CM2X1024-5400C4

Pros: Cheap, Hi performance DDR2

Cons: Lower end on speed, but that doesn't matter a ton.

Overall Review: I've had 2-3 very random complete system hard locks. Once in Guild Wars, once in STALKER, and one other time just general multi tasking (Zune music player, Mozilla web browser, ect running)I can only assume that the cause is the RAM. It's the only thing not specifically supported by my motherboard.
