Most Favorable Review

Works as expected.

Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Laptop Memory Model KVR800D2S5/2G
Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Laptop Memory Model KVR800D2S5/2G

Pros: Worked like a charm in my HP Elitebook 6930p. No complaints, booted right up.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Good price for good hardware.

Most Critical Review

No Server 2003/2008 Driver Support?

EVGA 113-M2-E113 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 730a HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
EVGA 113-M2-E113 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 730a HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Looks nice, pretty lights inside, even a temp display on the board (not that you'll ever see it unless you have a case with a window).

Cons: ONLY XP & VISTA 32/64BIT DRIVER SUPPORT! Unbelievable! Nothing for Server 2003/2008 on the install CD or their site. SATA port placement is unreasonable being they're at a 90 degree angle.

Overall Review: Guess the machine I built with this board is going to have to be my media box instead of my domain controller/dns/dhcp/ftp box. Very disappointing.

It's a flash drive...

SanDisk 16GB Ultra Flair CZ73 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (SDCZ73-016G-G46 )
SanDisk 16GB Ultra Flair CZ73 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (SDCZ73-016G-G46 )

Pros: -Steel casing -Fast USB 3.0 speeds

Cons: -No cover

Overall Review: I used this to install Windows on a new build along with a PCIe 4.0 M.2 drive; install was about 2 minutes total. Speeds are as expected; drive is pretty small and durable. Overall, great product.

Outstanding PnS

Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Black 12.1 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Black 12.1 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: Time between pressing power and being able to shoot is almost instantaneous. Quality photos...I did not find pictures to be blurry at all - takes amazing photos for a PnS. It has the surface area of a credit card - super compact, which is what caught my eye first about it. HD video from such a tiny thing is pretty impressive. Metal casing is perfect for concert-goers that like to be up front and in the action - super durable.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I bought this so I didn't have to carry around my bulky Nikon D50 - though I fear the Nikon won't get much use anymore. This camera has great features for the price and surely won't let you down if you're looking for a quality PnS.

Why choose anything else?

PC Power and Cooling Silencer 910W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire ready Power Supply
PC Power and Cooling Silencer 910W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire ready Power Supply

Pros: Consistent, dependable power from (in my opinion) one of the best PSU manufacturers out there. This thing is almost completely silent and delivers exactly what I expected from a PC P&C PSU.

Cons: I found I had an excess of extra cables I didn't use; for smaller cases this might be somewhat cumbersome.

Overall Review: Amazing PSU - why bother going with anything else?

Good high-capacity storage

Western Digital Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 931.51GB usable storage; transfer rates are good (50~60MB/s) on initial large file transfers using Vista x64 and it seems very stable. I've heard next to zero noise from this drive as well.

Cons: None that I've encountered thus far.

Overall Review: Technology seems very sound and after quite a bit of research, this drive seemed to me the front-runner for extra high-capacity storage. I bought 2 from Newegg and will probably buy a few more.
