Most Favorable Review

NUCs are great

Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) BOXNUC8i5BEK1 Intel Quad Core i5 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Love how they are so small, quiet and reliable.

Cons: Would like a 2nd HDMI port.

Overall Review: For anybody who is not a gamer that needs a high end video card or someone who likes to upgrade components all of the time I think NUCs are ideal. They are a great "PC for your mom" solution. Highly recommended.

Just as bad as people say

SanDisk 128GB Ultra Fit CZ43 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Up to150MB/s (SDCZ43-128G-G46) [Old Version]

Pros: Small and lots of space.

Cons: Overheats and disconnects just like the other negative reviews say it will. It is basically unusable. I will be returning this item.

Pros: None

Cons: Huge, overly bright light, very loud fan, caused system to blue-screen every time I used the Blu-ray drive that I installed into the chassis.

Disappointed

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R
CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R

Pros: Great specs

Cons: Heat spreader fell off coming out of the package!

Overall Review: I've always loved Corsair memory. I've used them probably 10+ times but not sure I will again if this is what their productions have come to.
