Most Favorable Review

Working cable

Rosewill RCAB-11007 – 15 Feet USB A Male to A Female Extension Cable - Black, Gold Plated Connectors
Rosewill RCAB-11007 – 15 Feet USB A Male to A Female Extension Cable - Black, Gold Plated Connectors

Pros: (1) Cheap/economical (2) Works with USB 2.0 (3) Robust diameter & sheathing

Cons: (1) Not USB 3.0 specification compliant

Overall Review: I was initially hesitant that a 15 ft USB extender cable would allow my periphery equipment to work, but this has performed as stated on two(2) different PCs with two (2) different peripheries. I haven't tried to see what amperage it can transmit (e.g. charge an iPad3), but I'd be really surprised if it's even theoretically possible to transmit the full load amperage through 15 ft of a USB 2.0 cabling to something like an iPad or larger tablet. All in all, if you need a USB 2.0 cable for equipment control signals and minor power loading (e.g. fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth dongle...etc.) then this is the way to go. I highly recommend it!

Most Critical Review

Typical D-Link Disappointment

D-Link DBT-120 USB 2.0 Wireless USB Bluetooth Adapter
D-Link DBT-120 USB 2.0 Wireless USB Bluetooth Adapter

Pros: USB

Cons: It was a minor hassle to get the Vista drivers, but not a major inconvenience. The real issue was quality, it died after 2 months of intermittent use, and IMHO that is extremely poor for a BT adapter.

Overall Review: If you're in the market for a Win Vista+ BT adapter, consider another product in your hunt.

solid performance

VCOM VC-DVI10MM Black Male to Male DVI-D to DVI-D Cable
VCOM VC-DVI10MM Black Male to Male DVI-D to DVI-D Cable

Pros: solid construction, works

Cons: not free or longer

Overall Review: It does what it says, it's a 10 ft DVI-D/DVI-D cable that worked the first try for me. Recommended if in the market for such a product.

Perfect review?

Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX for PC and Mac, Large Mouse, Long Range Wireless Mouse
Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX for PC and Mac, Large Mouse, Long Range Wireless Mouse

Pros: Does exactly what it says.

Cons: Proprietary USB cable, but it takes a single AA battery easily replaceable.

Overall Review: I prefer my computer hardware to keep pace with my thinking/actions, and this mouse does that. It does exactly what it says, every detail; from working on glass to providing clean, non-impeding functions that speed the computing experience. Only room for improvement is non-proprietary USB charging cable and bit cheaper. Overall, it's a must have for anyone who multitasks on a computer.

Simply WOW

Intel Core i7-920 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1366 130W Processor - BX80601920
Intel Core i7-920 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1366 130W Processor - BX80601920

Pros: Blazing speed, eight cores, runs buitifully on Win7 x64; and I mean beautifully!

Cons: Cost at the time was a bit higher than desired, but not bad at all for the performance provided.

Overall Review: If you're in the market for a near bleeding edge CPU (now=9/18/09), then this may very well do what you want, and then some. Running multiple installs also with Zune playing it hums along around a max load of 24% on rare ocassions. Case: ThermalTake VF1000BWS Motherboard: MSI X58M LGA CPU: Core i7 2.66GHz PSU: Corsair CMPSU-520HX Video: NVIDIA GTX 260 RAM: Corsair XMS3 6GB CPU Heatsink: Evercool HPK-10025EA SYS Fans: Vantec TF6025

Clean & Simple

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C9
CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C9

Pros: Simple installation with a MSI board, no issues, no bad sticks.

Cons: None determined.

Overall Review: Corsair made a definite win as far as DDR3 goes. I definately recommend if you're in the market for 6GB of DDR3.
