I don't have to trim heat sinks

CORSAIR Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9B
CORSAIR Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Works as well as the Corsair Vengeance with the tall heat sinks that cause a slot to be blocked with one of the large cpu coolers (and the are lots of those). Tall heatsinks are in my grandson's PC and we use the same Coolermaster 212 Hyper Plus cpu cooler. I could use all four slots with no trouble.

Cons: Doesn't look like a frightened porcupine.

Overall Review: Might not be the choice for maximum overclockers.

Doesn't work

HIS Gift - DIRT3 Game Redemption Coupon

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work. Error messages during attempt to get secondary codes.

Overall Review: Shipping charge for a piece of paper? This review should be a zero.

Waiting almost a year for software

Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Construction adequate for the $99 I paid. Switches are satisfactory. LEDs are bright.

Cons: Software is cr#p. You should be able to program individual keys.

Overall Review: There's a lot of cr#ppy software for peripherals. This is just another example. This could be a bargain if the software was adequate.

Same as HP 2310

HP WH344AAR#ABA 23" 1920 x 1080 DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort LCD Monitor
HP WH344AAR#ABA 23" 1920 x 1080 DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort LCD Monitor

Pros: This is the same monitor as the HP 2310. I have that monitor and it well worth the money. I also got it refurbished. Works great, no bad pixels. Note that specifications refer to 2310 power cord and the ports are the same.

Cons: You take a bit of a chance with refurbished equipment. No bad pixels on the one I got, worked and looked great out of the box.

Overall Review: Bought a second monitor from another source (Asus VE248Q) since Newegg charges high shipping cost to Hawaii so I used super saver shipping. I wish I had seen this one. This monitor is sharper and has better color adjustment than Asus.

There are better

Pros: The USB receiver is small and the Logitech software works.

Cons: Unreliable because of delay in accepting input. I'll never go wireless again. Logitech wireless mice and trackballs work great. This keyboard doesn't.

glad it's deactivated

Corsair Nova 2.5" 32GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-V32GB2-BRKT
Corsair Nova 2.5" 32GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-V32GB2-BRKT

Pros: none as it is small and slow. The size is my fault as I wanted to speed up OS loading cheaply. No luck there as it was big enough but no real world or benchmarked benefits.

Cons: I have bought many Corsair products over the years. The memory and the power supplies are great. This SSD is just awful. Slow from the start and just got slower. I'm going to try to rma it to Corsair. I spent about five hours trying to get working correctly but it still remains slower than a regular 7200 rpm Seagate drive.

Overall Review: Try another company for SSD.
