Most Favorable Review
HighPoint RocketRAID 2640X4 SGL PCI-Express x4 SATA / SAS Controller Card
HighPoint RocketRAID 2640X4 SGL PCI-Express x4 SATA / SAS Controller Card

Pros: Works well. Running 4 WD20EADS in Raid 5. Easy to install for the average person.

Cons: 42 Hous to build RAID 5 in background is a long time for a person with ADD.

Overall Review: Make sure you have a DOS USB key if you want to upgrade the BIOS.

Rosewill RPCT-10002 6-Piece Insulated Precision Screwdriver Set
Rosewill RPCT-10002 6-Piece Insulated Precision Screwdriver Set

Pros: Shell Shocker deal. Not bad for projects that don't require a precision fit.

Cons: Pretty cheaply made.

Overall Review: I didn't expect a set of Snap-on screwdrivers for the money and didn't get a set. If you can get them cheap, however, not bad for general work.

Good

AZiO E377-U31 Aluminum 3.5" Black SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure
AZiO E377-U31 Aluminum 3.5" Black SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Works well even with 3TB+ drives. Toolless drive switching is fantastic.

Cons: Not the fastest USB 3.0 enclosure but, for the price at the time, unbeatable.

Great!

D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: Best money I've spent. Much faster than the DIR-825 that I was using previously.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Bought this, originally, thinking I would just use it as a WAP. I used it that way for about a month, then decided on a whim to try it as my main router. It was much faster than the 825 that I had been using. Now the 825 is the WAP and the refurb 655 is doing the heavy lifting.

Good so far.

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

Pros: Fast even in an external enclosure. Got it on sale from the egg for $89.99.

Cons: It still won't hold all my Blu-Ray backups so I need another.
