Works great on my iMac!

Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model KVR1333D3SOK2/8GR
Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model KVR1333D3SOK2/8GR

Pros: Installed very quickly in my iMac. (2011 27" Thunderbolt model with four RAM slots). Works flawlessly and detected instantly.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: A great way to add more RAM to the iMac without paying Apple's high prices. I had 4GB of RAM pre-installed via two 2GB modules, I added these purchased modules to it for a total of 12GB of RAM. Needless to say I'm a very happy camper!

I love these headphones!

Pros: Very good quality. Feels good. I think these sound wonderful, I always hear subtle audio difference and other instruments/vocals when listening to music with headphones. I'm no audio expert, but they sound good to me! They fit well and they're cozy on my ears. Also includes a handy 3.5mm (standard mini-stereo) to 6.35mm (1/4 inch) adapter for using the headphones on equipment featuring the larger audio jack.

Cons: This is my 3rd or 4th pair. The plastic hinges (I call them that) around the band that hold the speakers in place are plastic. So they can easily be broken. the little plastic tabs on my previous set broke. The set before that broke by me sitting on them, and the previous set before that met a similar fate. I would call it a design overlook, not exactly a flaw, but if the band connected to the speakers a bit better (maybe a metal clip or a differently designed plastic clip) it would last longer and may be able to take a bit of a better beating. After all it's my fault for breaking them. I'd just say be careful with them, they are pretty sturdy as they are. Not enough to subtract an egg though.

Overall Review: After wearing for a few hours your ears may feel a bit sensitive, but that's usually the case with any type of headphones that cover your ears.

Fantastic DVD-RW drive!

Pros: Affordable, Solid drive, smaller than most optical drives, SATA ports reduce space taken up by cables, easy to install, very quick read and write times. Worked with cheap DVD media and better quality media, very happy with this product.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: My last PC I built years ago used a Lite-On DVD-RW drive so when I built my new PC I once again got a Lite-On and was no disappointed. In fact I may purchase another one for the same PC. Since this was an OEM version there was no software or cables included, however this should not be considered a Con since this was already posted on the newegg.com site.

Good case

COOLER MASTER Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of room inside, this case can hold a lot of devices, the overall case is not too large. I currently have a DVD-RW drive and two hard drives in the case, with plenty of room for more.

Cons: The construction could be stronger, also the front USB/Audio port plate takes away an external 3.5 bay, but that can always be removed.

Overall Review: I haven't noticed my HD activity LED working, although I will double-check to see if it's connected correctly. Maybe it's just tiny and hard to see from where I'm sitting.

Great flash drive

CORSAIR Flash Voyager 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-8GB

Pros: Excellent amount of storage space, fast transfers and compatible with multiple operating systems. Nice blue activity LED. Great for transferring files to and from work, no need to burn DVDs anymore! :)

Cons: Rubber case attracts dirt and dust. The hole for a lanyard would be nicer if it was secured with metal or hard plastic, the rubber one may tear one day.

Works great in my Intel iMac

Pros: RAM works perfectly with my new Intel iMac. No errors, no problems, just awesome performance.

Cons: The RAM isn't the highest speed that my iMac supports but, at this price I didn't really care.
