Most Critical Review

Not too bad

Brother MFC series MFC-J425w Up to 33 ppm Black Print Speed 6000 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
Brother MFC series MFC-J425w Up to 33 ppm Black Print Speed 6000 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: 1.) All features have worked since I purchased the printer 2.) Interactive display works well with wireless devices 3.) Easy to set up and use

Cons: 1.) Auto cleans at the most random times and it seems as though you cannot change it. 2.) The software that installs on your computer will complain at you continually if you are below 50% ink in any of the 4 ink cartridges. This also takes priority over your currently running programs on your computer. 3.) A little on the bulky side but not entirely a con I suppose

Decent Deal on Special

Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac - CD Sleeve

Pros: Purchased this when it was on special for $20 and absolutely made a world of difference.

Cons: I really did not see any cons for this. If you are buying it you probably already know why.

Not Recommended

MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: 1.) Very solid and modern graphics card 2.) Very easy install 3.) Very easy to configure 4.) Drivers are well maintained (Nvidia) 5.) Absolutely no problems for 6months

Cons: Really only one con... Died after 6 months. I maintain my machines well and my equipment... well above average. Not to mention my job in real life is to maintain machines I always maintain mine to the highest standard and just one night this card quit working. I placed my old 560 ti in and it worked immediately.. so did the dedicated and even hooked this card into another machine and it wouldn't work. I normally like MSI and have spent a lot of money with the company. But this is not one I recommend

Excellent

SteelSeries Siberia v2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - White
SteelSeries Siberia v2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - White

Pros: Honestly they just work. The auto-adjust for different head sizes and 100% cancellation of external noises allows me to sit down, put these on and get busy gaming. I have had/ordered maybe 8 headsets and this is easily the best. Just a well made and well rounded product. I have owned now for about 1 1/2 years and literally 0 problems.

Cons: Still none after all this time.

EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 512-P3-N879-RX

Pros: Honestly I have not been able to test the card yet, but I can say that it is a did seem to arrive in fairly ok condition, and for the price it is hard to beat.

Cons: First, this card arrived roughly six days after I ordered it, five if you don't include sunday. Given the 3day shipping is a complete failure- I suppose I will probably pay for a different method in the future. Second, the card does not come with the cables or the CD. So, for the cables you might as well tack on an additional 10-50$ depending where you are ordering from.

Overall Review: In my opinion just buy a card with the cables and CD that comes from the manufact. Otherwise you are probably just out of pocketing the same amount as a 9900 series or a 2X.
