SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2 2280 2TB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7S2T0B/AM

Pros: A respectable amount of storage space that runs games and video editing very well. I've had zero problems with this drive.

Overall Review: I'd buy this again but I'm hoping for the same drive in larger capacities in the future.

Most Critical Review

Doesn't work at all

Rosewill HDTV Antenna, Indoor TV Antenna Range up to 60 Miles with Amplifier Signal Booster, High Performance Coaxial Cable, 4K and ATSC3.0 Ready, RHTA-18002
Rosewill HDTV Antenna, Indoor TV Antenna Range up to 60 Miles with Amplifier Signal Booster, High Performance Coaxial Cable, 4K and ATSC3.0 Ready, RHTA-18002

Pros: None

Cons: Alot of money for a paper weight. From looking at other reviews, seems like poor quality control.

Overall Review: I've tried everything with this antenna. I've used the booster, tried it without the booster, bought a auxiliary digital decoder box with its own booster, tried directly on the TV, and through the digital box. Results: 0 channels found.

Fantastic hardware, awful software

Pros: Crisp sound, good bass, cool lights, small size.

Cons: The software for running this setup on PC with USB is just awful because of the volume controls. Volume settings are 1-50, yet on 1 sound can be clearly heard across a large room; and the difference in volume between 35 and 50 is negligible. On sound setting 1, I have to go into each program individually and dial down program volume to 10-15% of original volume to get a volume that is only audible to the person at the computer. This is inconvenient in best cases, and impossible to achieve if programs don't allow additional volume controls. Imagine having a sleeping spouse or child in the room and you scroll across an autoplay video without volume controls. Now everyone is awake and angry... And there is nothing you can do but mute your speakers entirely. It feels like there should be at least 5 more volume steps between 0 and 1. I've contacted Sound Blaster support directly and they were courteous enough to forward my question to their advanced support team and got back to me within a few days, but they said they're unable to fix this issue when the speakers are connected via USB. My previous logitech speakers were connected via USB and did not have this problem.

Overall Review: tldr: Great speaker system is a pain to use because volume control software does very poor job controlling volume. If I could go back in time, I'd avoid these speakers. It's a shame such great hardware made so difficult to use because of such bad software.

Holds 3 monitors

FLEXIMOUNTS D1T Triple Monitor Arm Desk Mounts Stand Fits 10"-27" Computer Monitor , 22 lbs per arm Clamp

Pros: Will hold 3 monitors Clamps are strong and mount on most surfaces

Cons: 27'' monitors barely fit, don't expect the curved display setup if your a gamer with 27 in monitors

Overall Review: Made a custom mount for the center monitor to get the curve effect with side monitors Wish each arm was an inch or 2 longer Still a good buy for the price

Crashed after 3 months of very light use

ADATA Premier SP550 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP550SS3-480GM-C

Pros: Decent load times for the short time it worked

Cons: Died under 0% load and less than 20% full.

Overall Review: Buy the Samsung instead. Now that I have to pay for shipping, the costs between this drive and a better quality unit even out.
