Magical Cable

LSI LSI00411 1m Internal Cable SFF8643 to x4 SATA HDD (mini SAS HD to SATA data port)--Avago Technologies
LSI LSI00411 1m Internal Cable SFF8643 to x4 SATA HDD (mini SAS HD to SATA data port)--Avago Technologies

Pros: Its a pretty well made cable

Cons: The jackets near the SATA connectors are pretty thin, you may need to add heat shrink tubing if your chassis has any sharp edges.

Overall Review: for the price it does everything you would expect a cable to

Most Critical Review

Large Drive- Not so reliable

Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD10TPVT 1TB 5200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD10TPVT 1TB 5200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Large drive, despite that it will fit in a mac book pro 17"- WD's RMA service is also quite snappy.

Cons: Died around 6 months of use- started going really slow then failed WD diagnostics when I ran them. That is not to detract from the fact that WD did stand behind their product (as always) and send me a new drive through their RMA service. (Now on the shelf for a mini-itx computer)

Overall Review: I would suggest you used a black label WD product for any laptop they seem to fail a lot less than the blue label products. They (Black Label) also have integrated accelerometers to park the heads under motion.... something any laptop drive should have.... period. (I dont think this drive was taking park commands form apples S.M.S.- could very well be what killed the drive with the abuse my mac gets)

Great Memory

Crucial 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Server Memory Model CT3KIT51272BA1067
Crucial 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Server Memory Model CT3KIT51272BA1067

Pros: I have used this brand in most of my server builds have yet to experience any odd issues. This memory is suitable for anyone who likes uptime numbers.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: Great memory- works quite well in servers and cad/cam machines.

Best Keyboard Ever

Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Brown Switches
Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Brown Switches

Pros: Great design, black metal construction and physical keys with a nice even backlighting.

Cons: None that I could even think of....

Overall Review: This is a great product- I have bought several of these for our heavy office typers (Thats right.... not gaming). Not only does it look nice on an executive desk, because you can turn off the backlighting... It is like a dream to type on. If you want a sharp looking keyboard that has a great feel this is your unit.

Its a cheap case, if that is what you want.

NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: It looks sharp, nice black angles and a well done plastic front cover

Cons: Super thin metal (again its cheap) and the powdercoat was in the threads on my unit so I had to torque through it to get my motherboard standoffs installed.

Overall Review: I would totally buy this case again, its a great little cheap case- just dont be expecting it to feel sturdy or strong.

Odd Behaviour

Mushkin Enhanced Stealth 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069S
Mushkin Enhanced Stealth 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069S

Pros: Price for Specs, simple heat spreader design.

Cons: Despite having proper CAS/Voltage/Frequency and Density for my motherboard this memory would not work. I would normally just toss this up to a complaint about the motherboard, but some other memory with the same specs worked just fine. (And there is another reviewer who also had odd compatibility problems) I just shipped this back to newegg for a refund.

Overall Review: May be great memory, not sure who is at fault here- but I don't care to figure it out when I can just easily order another brand.

Slow Shipper

I will never order from a newegg third party again- this order has not only taken forever to ship- the shipper has not given me any kind of tracking information on my order.
