Great Drive!

Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit
Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit

Pros: 1TB platters Quiet Cool Efficient Decent sized Cache

Cons: none

Overall Review: I rarely buy "Retail" kits as I don't ever need the extras , but these when on sale for same as a barebone so I nabbed 2 running in Raid 1 or mirror setting in Win7. Works great as all my Seagate drives do. I've been buying Seagate drives for over 15 years and have yet to have any of my 35TB worth of drives fail. Highly recommended.

Great Card!

XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation XXX OC Video Card R9-380P-4255
XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation XXX OC Video Card R9-380P-4255

Pros: Great cooling design, 4GB VRAM, power efficiency over previous generation. Clean design. Removable fans for cleaning.

Cons: None that I've found, so yup no coil whine here.

Overall Review: I own 2 of these. One DID come from XFX the other from AMD, I must disclose this. Based off the Tonga 285 architecture I wasn't expecting super performance , but good. Well XFX has done a great job of re engineering these cards and with the 4GB of VRAM, they really work well. 8350/Crossfired ( 2x380) on a 600W PSU, they beat out my 290X/9590in most of my racing sims! Well done XFX, very pleased with your rendition of this line. * The card I received from AMD was actually purchased directly from here at Newegg. So I have a retail variant experience with it.

Still going strong!

Pros: Fully Modular, Silent operation off load, reliable

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've enjoyed this unit for some time now. It's very efficient and I love the "hybrid" fan control. This unit has powered an AMD FX-9590 and R9 290x for some time now with out complaint. Another reliable XFX product and satisfied purchase.

Love this stuff!

Pros: Provides better then stock (in most cases) heat transfer Easy dispenser

Cons: Getting pricy

Overall Review: When on sale grab it. I always use this in a new build. Original experience many years back yielded a 20 degree temperature reduction on same fan, and have never looked back since.

Rosewill Gaming Keyboard RK-8100, Anti-Ghosting feature, Fully programmable keys, 10 profiles setting
Rosewill Gaming Keyboard RK-8100, Anti-Ghosting feature, Fully programmable keys, 10 profiles setting

Pros: Lots of features if you elect to use them. Rubber "gaming" keys Has withstood daily use with no issues

Cons: Software for programmable keys not overly efficient, will hang up once in a while.

Overall Review: Got this for 15 bucks on sale. That is absolutely worth it at that price. It's been used daily and I've had no issues with any of the keys, other then the software provided for the mulit function keys has caused occasional hang ups. Best if used as a gaming or general use keyboard. I'd have knocked one egg due to the software, but for what I paid and reverting it to a normal keyboard, it's and excellent deal when on sale.
