GeIL is back!

GeIL EVO CORSA Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model GOC316GB1600C10DC
GeIL EVO CORSA Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model GOC316GB1600C10DC

Pros: Just like the instructions say, it defaults to 1333 so your computer doesn't get ticked off at it. I set it to 1600 in the BIOS and away she went! Super fast! Nice heat sinks. I don't know why people are mad about the color. It's awesomely unique! It gives a new pop inside my Antec Nine Hundred case full of boring blue LED fans!

Cons: The only thing I would say I didn't like about this RAM is that the heat sinks felts cheap. Like, they moved when I went to install them kind of cheap. They aren't a solid heat sink setup like most other RAM out there, they are kind of 2 pieces that come together but don't interlock. So, be careful, this doesn't affect the cooling performance, just caught me off guard. Not going to dock an egg for this b/c they work and I didn't break them off installing :)

Overall Review: I got these in a combo with my i7-2700k. They work perfectly fine. I have had no hiccups with them yet. I've used GeIL for about 6 years now and have never had a bad stick (easily over 75 PC builds).

Most Critical Review

Comfy but died FAST

eDimensional Audio FX 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Force Feedback Gaming Headset
eDimensional Audio FX 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Force Feedback Gaming Headset

Pros: When I first got these, they rocked! They are super comfy compared to my Logitech USBs / Fatalitys.

Cons: The mic never worked properly in TS / Vent / in game / Skype. I always sounded like I was talking on a helicopter. Now, its so bad, it just makes a vibrating noise when I talk. I've gone through every codec, reload of Windows, drivers, etc, no dice. The speakers now pop and crackle, and the mic is dead. 1.5 months for $50.

Overall Review: I'm going to order another brand for now on. eDimensional = cheap!

8 second Windows 8 boot time

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD256BW
SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD256BW

Pros: After POST, it takes 8 entire seconds to fully boot to the desktop. It takes longer for my computer to POST... I run an i7-2770k with 32GB RAM and this SSD really made my machine scream.

Cons: I was skeptical about SSDs because I've had lots of friends have SSDs go out on them under a year, but this one has not let me down yet. It's amazingly fast and, so far, reliable.

Great disks, thick label

Verbatim 25GB 6X BD-R 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 97457
Verbatim 25GB 6X BD-R 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 97457

Pros: So far, I've backed up 5 disks full of my pictures with no bad burns. I've verified each one just to be safe, and they've all checked out OK. I really like it that the covering over the media is nice and thick (the label). They should resist my clumsiness better than some other media I have used before. Overall, great media. I got what I paid for :)

Cons: They are plain, but functional. No bells or whistles, just plain, boring labels on top :)

Amazing Monitors!

ASUS VE278H 27" Full HD 1920 x 1080 VGA HDMI Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Built-in Speakers LED Backlight LCD Monitor
ASUS VE278H 27" Full HD 1920 x 1080 VGA HDMI Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Built-in Speakers LED Backlight LCD Monitor

Pros: These are beautiful monitors! They have super fast response times and tons of color mode settings. These come with a DVI-D --> HDMI cable, so if you don't have HDMI, you are covered out of the box.

Cons: I don't think I could fit a 3rd one on my desk without it taking up the entire desk... but that's not necessarily a bad thing :)

Works great

Pros: I got 2 new Asus 27" 2ms LED/LCD monitors and wanted to connect my computer with HDMI cables. These were the right length and super inexpensive. For gaming, video, and normal use, these seem to be working just fine so far. No bleeding, no noise.

Cons: They came in 2 days? Wait, that's not a bad thing :)
