Awesome mount

Rosewill RMS-A871 Black 26" - 32" Bracket Articular Arm wall mount
Rosewill RMS-A871 Black 26" - 32" Bracket Articular Arm wall mount

Pros: Very sturdy and nicely powder coated. Comes with nice substantial lag screws for mounting to studs. Joints can be adjusted for ease of movement. Screen can be tilted and leveled. There is a very simple cable tie system that you can opt to install on the arms. Installs using only one wall stud. This is a very good mounting bracket, I would definately purchase another.

Cons: Written instructions are vague and obviously translated poorly. I recommend just laying everything out and studying it for a while. Im still not sure what a couple of washer like parts are but according to the pictures I didnt need them anyway.

Overall Review: I Used this mount with a new 32" Samsung LCD also purchased at Newegg. There were plenty of mounting screws to choose from for the back of the TV mounting plate.

solid little cooler

Pros: Small and quiet. Solid aluminum. The fan can be easily moved.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I use it with a Lenovo U-260 which is like a 12" netbook.

Nice hybrid?

Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Intel Core i5 1st Gen 470UM (1.33GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 12.5" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit U260 (08763DU)

Pros: Very nice looking with great build materials. Keyboard is very nice. Bought from the manufacturer. There are plenty of reviews out there about this machine. I would recommend it for something a bit better than a netbook but somewhat less functional than a full laptop depending on your needs. Windows 7 is awesome. Small and easy to carry.

Cons: Depending on needs no optical drive may be tough for some. I just use a portable one when I need it. Fan may be a little loud for some. Only 4 eggs due to the short battery life. I keep it in battery saver mode so its only 80% charged. The keyboard is great but not backlit.

Overall Review: Not much bloatware with it. Lenovo actually has some useful software included with it.

Works fine

Seagate Momentus 5400.6 ST9250315AS 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: SATA small, quiet. Needs only one usb port to power it via the enclosure that I put it in.

Cons: None yet

awesome enclosure

acomdata HDEXXUP-240 Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 Enclosure Kit

Pros: Very small, not much bigger than the drive. Drive fits securely in the enclosure thanks to some kind of buffer material on one end. Appears to be very well built.

Cons: None

Overall Review: There are two very small screws holding the drive connector end to the enclosure. You will need a very small screw driver to properly remove them. Be careful putting them back in to avoid stripping anything. Used windows disk manager to format the drive once it was fired up. 250Gig 5400rpm drive only needed one usb power source.

Nice frame

Pros: Large screen, nice picture. You can mount it in just about any real 10x13" frame or use it as is. Its a very sleek, modern looking black frameless screen. Nice remote. Very sturdy metal stand. Has an auto on and off feature. I havent fooled with the onboard memory yet. Just put in a preloaded SD card and turned it on, worked like a charm. Menus arent too complex which is good because the instructions leave a little to be desired which is normal these days.

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: Newegg packaged this for shipment very well and the manufacturer did the same with their packaging.
