Link Depot USB-15-AMB Black USB 2.0 Cable A Male to Mini B Male

Most Critical Review

terrible life...

SilenX IXP-11-14 40mm Case Fan
SilenX IXP-11-14 40mm Case Fan

Pros: Quiet (at least till it died a noisy death).

Cons: Started making a horrible noise after only 6 months.

Overall Review: As other reviewers have said, the life expectancy of this fan is very low. Highly recommend finding a different one if you need one this size.

Fast and lightweight

Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2012 – 3 Users
Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2012 – 3 Users

Pros: Super fast and doesn't slow down your machine like others do. I have had one false positive in the almost year I've been using it. I reported it to Webroot and it was promptly fixed.

Cons: None really. Best AV I've ever used.

Overall Review: Some claim it doesn't work offline, not true at all. It can still identify threats and anything questionable it will remember and check the next time you are online. But lets be honest, unless you go around sticking random media in your PC while offline your risk of getting a virus while offline is near 0.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256D/AM 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

Pros: Very fast, easy to migrate Windows install using supplied Ghost software and instructions. Included magician software does all the needed Windows tweaks for you.

Cons: Tray does not use standard 3.5" drive screws! Had to fix it with a 6-32 tap in order to use it in my Antec case. An easy fix if you have a 6-32 tap on hand but enough of an oversight to remove one egg.

junk

Rosewill RCR-IC001 - 3.5" Internal 40-in-1 Card Reader with USB 2.0 Port & Extra Silver Face Plate
Rosewill RCR-IC001 - 3.5" Internal 40-in-1 Card Reader with USB 2.0 Port & Extra Silver Face Plate

Pros: Got it when it was the Shell Shocker so it was cheap.

Cons: Does not work at all with Win7 64-bit even with the 64-bit drivers from Rosewill site. If you could give 0 eggs as a score that is what I would give.

Overall Review: Since I sat on it for over a month before installing I'm stuck with it, not that it would be worth the effort to send back anyways.

Does not get any better

Antec Mini P180 Black Steel Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Antec Mini P180 Black Steel Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: I'm using this for my WHS box. With a passively cooled Atom 330 MB, 4 HDs, and a Corsair 400W PSU this thing is almost silent.

Cons: It's large, but I knew that before I bought it.

Overall Review: It comes with an extra 120mm fan, but if you are using all the 3.5" drive bays there is no place to install it.
