Most Favorable Review

Nice, cool fan with heatsink

Scythe SCIT-1000 Slim Hard Disk Cooler
Scythe SCIT-1000 Slim Hard Disk Cooler

Pros: This is small and probably one of the "coolest" looking hard drive coolers out there. Easy to install, just screws onto the bottom of the hard drive. It lowered the temp of my hard drive by 7°C, and I can't even the fan.

Cons: Costs money?

Most Critical Review
PNY 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model P-FD08GU20-RF
PNY 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model P-FD08GU20-RF

Pros: the computer recognizes it

Cons: almost every file that I write to it gets corrupted

Great memory and RMA process

OCZ Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ26672048VDC-K
OCZ Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ26672048VDC-K

Pros: One module worked when I got it. I was able to send only the DOA one back to OCZ (I needed the working one for a computer job), and they shipped a new black one directly from the factory in Taiwan. My black module that I got as a replacement looks sick

Cons: One stick was DOA

Overall Review: OCZ's RMA process was fairly quick and painless

Good, cheap RAM (with rebate and sale)

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX

Pros: Works great, got my rebate about a month before other ones that I sent at the same time were even mailed. Nice big heatsinks.

Cons: If you're in the US, the rebate is a prepaid Visa card. Look for mail from Citi Bank addressed to you. Chances are that's your prepaid Visa.

Overall Review: HUGE

Great memory

Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model KVR667D2N5/2G
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model KVR667D2N5/2G

Pros: This is the shortest stick of ram that I have ever seen; it's less than half the height of the one pictured.

Cons: only DDR 667

Great card

ASUS GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card EN9800GTX+ DK/HTDI/512M
ASUS GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card EN9800GTX+ DK/HTDI/512M

Pros: This is a great card with a nice looking heatsink. It runs cooler than my regular 8800GT. Only runs in the low 40s with Folding@Home GPU running.

Cons: It went down in price $20 before I received it, but newegg wouldn't refund any money:(
