100 Gig Internal Laptop HDD

Hitachi GST Travelstar 7K100 HTS721010G9SA00 (0A25016) 100GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 1) Fast Transfer Speeds 2) Lots of Memory 3) Raid 0 Compatable

Cons: 1) No HDD Screws included (kind of important) 2) Slightly Noisey

Overall Review: This is a great internal HDD for my laptop. I already had one, this was my second. I raid 0'ed it to my main HDD, and it works great. The only downsides to this was that it did not come with screws, and it is a little bit noisey sometimes (just like my other one). The noise is not loud though, some headphones or a playing music/movies/games will not be interfered with by the noise. Gread product, wish it had come with screws.

Affordable, Super Fast, Easy Use

BELKIN F5D8235-4 802.11b/g/n N+ Wireless Gigabit Router up to 300Mbps
BELKIN F5D8235-4 802.11b/g/n N+ Wireless Gigabit Router up to 300Mbps

Pros: + Very Affordable + Very Easy Setup (W/Included CD Program) + Features ability to make a network shared drive (w/ext HDD) + Nice Display (high vis, multiple displays, IE: view download speed, security status, network HDD status, etc) + Powerful WIFI

Cons: - Tall and kind of bulky - Network shared drive has no password protection, anyone with access to the WIFI has access to the Networkds EXT HDD Not too many Cons yet, only had it a few days. No dropped internet or slow speeds to note yet.

Overall Review: The router's Setup CD is quick and thorough. I would say a tech Newbie could succeed with it. The network HDD is only protected by the WIFI encryption (I'm using WPA2 AES), which slightly uncomforting (any guests get access to my WIFI & unintentionally HDD). I'm happy with my purchase so far, and I really like the new router.

IPOD 80 GIG

Apple iPod video (Late 2006) 2.5" Black 80GB MP3 / MP4 Player MA450LL/A
Apple iPod video (Late 2006) 2.5" Black 80GB MP3 / MP4 Player MA450LL/A

Pros: Small Size, Easy to carry Good Battery Life HUGE memory

Cons: When I got it, it worked well, and I loaded all my music into it. Then for some reason, it said that it had been corrupted (after proper ejection procedures). I had to reformat it all over again. Weird glitch.

Overall Review: This has more than enough memory, especially when considering the compression of the Music through iTunes.
