Corsair Neutron Series GTX 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-N120GBGTXB-BK
Corsair Neutron Series GTX 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-N120GBGTXB-BK

Pros: Very fast and easy to install, comes with adaptor plate and screws. The SandForce controllors seem to have the bugs worked out of them.

Cons: No cons at this time.

Overall Review: Used this to update the wife's P45 system so I'm having to use SATA II rather than SATA III. Works faster in AHCI rather than IDE mode. Used a dual hotswap unit for mounting and all is fine, only took 2.5 hours from start to finnish for install and loading W7 32 bit OS with updates and software.

Rosewill Server Case or Chassis - RSV-R4000 - 4U Rackmount - 4 x Included Cooling Fans, 8 x Internal Bays
Rosewill Server Case or Chassis - RSV-R4000 - 4U Rackmount - 4 x Included Cooling Fans, 8 x Internal Bays

Pros: Good price, strong case, plenty of room for all your hardware.

Cons: Specs say it will mount a standard ATX mobo but there are no holes to line up with a 12" X 9.6" front 3 holes. Removed the standoffs and used nuts to mount to the mobo to keep it level.

Braided Line

PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line Moss Green - Bulk Spools  20 lb.; 1500 yds.
PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line Moss Green - Bulk Spools 20 lb.; 1500 yds.

Pros: Much thinner and lighter than what Power pro line used to make.

Cons: expensive!

Overall Review: Have used braded line for 14 years and found it to be very good for bait caster reels. Switched from spider wire to power pro when prices went to high about 9 years ago and have found it to be as good if not better.

Pros: Low price, easy setup, good sound.

Cons: Complicated Manuel, does not work well with other brands such as Toshiba DVD/VCR recorder, Sharp HDTV and others.
