Perfect for skyping

PLANTRONICS GAMECOM 1 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset
PLANTRONICS GAMECOM 1 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset

Pros: Audio quality is the best! Awesome bass for just a headset, i actually use these now for my computer headphones. The microphone quality is absolutely perfect for making calls on skype or other VoIP clients, and is good for podcasting as well.

Cons: The cords are just a little to thin for my liking, but as long as your careful then they should last a while. Also, the input and output cords are not separated. So i was not able to plug the mic into the back of the PC, and the headphones into the back of the speakers on my desk, so i have to pull my PC out when ever i use these and plug them both into the back.

Overall Review: If you're looking to replace that old desk-mic, or just looking for a simple headset for audio conferencing, then this headset is just the thing, the quality of this product is more than what i was expecting for the price i payed.

Western Digital Blue WD800JB 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Probably one of the most reliable drives that I bought from Western Digital. This was a big improvement over the 10 gig drive i replaced with this. The drive is whisper quiet, and stays very cool. Over all this drive preforms great for its price and i highly recommend this for anyone looking to upgrade their hard drive.

Cons: None!

Great deal for the price

Pros: Great modem for such a low price, works perfectly with no issues. Comes with light and helpful software, including a Call waiting monitor.

Cons: None at all :)

Overall Review: Originally bought this for a friend so she could use her dial-up connection within Linux, but it did not work on all three versions that we tried (MEPIS, Ubuntu, And Fedora Core 4). However, this card works GREAT on windows.
