great flash drive

Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF16GUSB
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF16GUSB

Pros: The Xporter XT is one of the best price/performance Flash drives money can buy, Yes. There are faster Drives, but they are either small 2GB ones, or over $100 industrial ones like the Ironkey.. This drive is great, I watch movies on the 16GB one in my car, and do other things with the 8GB one.

Cons: None, Other than the size and takes up almost 2 slots, but then it's water and shock resistant with the rubber. and I've spilled on it and it still works.

Overall Review: The 16GB Xporter XT Boost in HD Tune I get speeds of around 32 MB/s Max, and 30.7 Average Read and fairly good 17-20 Write.. It's one of the best drives. I'd highly recommend it. (I just bought on sale the 8GB Kingston Data Traveler G2, fancy and shiny, and it's slow as can be.. get the Xporter!

PNY Optima 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD2048KD2-533
PNY Optima 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model MD2048KD2-533

Pros: Was nice RAM for the price, most that cheap don't have heatspreaders. But the chips were no good.

Cons: Well, It crashed the computer. it is 533 MHz RAM, but showed up as PC2-5300 667 MHz RAM and it was to much for the computer I added it to. The RAM wasn't the right speed. Then failed Memory tests so I returned it..

Overall Review: Newegg.com is great for RMA's. It's very very easy. No questions asked. answered emails fast and in a friendly manner. I'll do business here again. I get everything from here for my PC.

TV looks amazing

Vizio 47" 1080p 240Hz LED-LCD HDTV
Vizio 47" 1080p 240Hz LED-LCD HDTV

Pros: The TV is gorgeous so far and I completely love it. The full edge-lit LED is amazing and colors are excellent. Blacks are black and it has tons of ports on back for anything you need. I could use an extra component though (not everything is HDMI.) Speakers are louder than most LED TV's and gets very loud while still sounding good.

Cons: Remote problems like everyone else. The Bluetooth part works and I can type and use the back keyboard for Netflix etc but the included remote for actual "remote" features doesn't work. Not sure what is wrong but the remote will not turn on the TV or do ANYTHING. The only part of it I can get to work is the bluetooth features and I had to use my cable remote to get to menu to sync bluetooth. Suggestions?

Overall Review: Only other concern is wide viewing angles the black doesn't seem as black and in dark scenes white letters n lighter backgrounds seem to have a halo of light around them. But this is very minor only in terrible angles. GET This TV if you can get it for cheap like I did!

Great on Water

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR

Pros: These cards seriously are BEASTS. People can say whatever they want about the heat and power consumption. We know that going into it. All cards this good suck power. The GTX 480 is "TOP" dog once put on water-cooling. I can overclock this thing sooo far. and my temps never go above 52c full load.

Cons: Nothing, I wish it could clean my room. It cleans up benchies online though!

Overall Review: DangerDen Nickel+Copper GTX 480 Waterblock on this thing. Slight increase in voltage and I'm getting over 900 on the core and 1800 on shaders stable for gaming. I've benched at 920 Mhz. All while not getting hotter than 52c. Water-cooling Fermi For The Win!

eVGA 480'ssss

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR

Pros: The eVGA GTX 480 simply is a sweet card. It overclocks better than my Gigabyte 480 and it runs a few degree's cooler. I'm very happy with it. These cards Minimum FPS in gaming is one of those points that is overlooked a little, but makes a Huge difference in gaming

Cons: Nothing really, Heat even though these cards are NO where near as hot as reviewers said they are. Mine idle at 41 and 45c in SLI and load around 80c max unless heavily pushed.

Overall Review: I'll be water-cooling mine this week with a DD block. I've been able to push my eVGA 480 to 870/1740/2100 so far with Afterburner at 1.113v. This makes it a beast!

480 SLI

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR

Pros: These cards are simply BEASTS. they just rock. I have a Gigabyte and a eVGA in SLI and these cards are just pure pwnage. SLI 480's is as fast as it gets and blows everything else out of the water. Gaming is incredible.

Cons: Nothing other than the price.. but oh well. in SLI these cards idle temps are 41c and 45c. VERY good temps. No where as bad as reviewers said.

Overall Review: Running highly overclocked to 860 Mhz and 2000 on Memory I'm still not able to see temps above around 85c. and that sounds hot but it's no hotter than any other Top end graphics card. These overclock like beats. and will be Water-cooled starting next week.
