BANG!

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio VARPAK 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio VARPAK 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card

Pros: Easy install, drivers work great, manual incase you need, has connector for front panel connection.

Cons: None found yet.

Overall Review: For an upgrade from my Sound Blaster LIVE! 16 bit card, the sound difference is amazing. Clear highs, deep lows, and an over great sound. Plays movies / games like a champion. No need to look anywhere else.

Most Critical Review

Very disappointed

NETGEAR WNDR4500-100NAR N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router
NETGEAR WNDR4500-100NAR N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: 1 of the 3 I ordered worked

Cons: 2 of the units I can't even log into to change the settings. I purchased 3 of these units and only one works.

Overall Review: Normally I've been VERY happy with netgear and use them exclusively with my clients when setting up their networks. Very disappointed in these units and am hoping for some sort of refund / replacement on these units.

Great monitor

Samsung CRG9 Series LC49RG90SSNXZA 49" Dual Quad HD 5120 x 1440 Resolution 120Hz HDMI, 2x DisplayPort AMD FreeSync 2 Flicker Free HDR1000 QLED Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: Amazing resolution, ability to use as one screen or split screen with 2 inputs. 120hz refresh and great control settings.

Cons: Stand could be more adjustable

Overall Review: Easily the best monitor I have ever owned. I went from two 2k monitors to this 1 monitor and I'm so glad I did.

What a gorgeous case

Cooler Master MasterBox MB530P Black ATX Mid-Tower with Three Tempered Glass Panels, Front Side Mesh Intakes, Three 120mm ARGB Lighting Fans
Cooler Master MasterBox MB530P Black ATX Mid-Tower with Three Tempered Glass Panels, Front Side Mesh Intakes, Three 120mm ARGB Lighting Fans

Pros: *Large Interior with enough room for any components you might want to add *Built in RGB fans with a built in controller that you can sync to your motherboard *PSU shroud that has holes in the top to vent the power supply and also so you can see if you have an RGB PSU *Front and back tempered glass panels allow you to show off the components, and the nice cable management in the back *Improved airflow design in the front of the case to allow enough air to be pushed through the case

Cons: *Disk drive bay sits underneath the PSU shroud, and is not removable. This causes a little issue with cable management, but was able to solve.

Overall Review: *Overall this is a great gaming case that affords all the space one might need while also providing an awesome look. I highly recommend this case to anyone looking for a high airflow, high aesthetic case.

Surprising case for such a small price

Cougar MX330 Mid Tower Case with Full Acrylic Transparent Window and USB 3.0

Pros: Plenty of space for my ATX motherboard, 2 fans in front, 2 fans on top, my NVIDIA GTX 970, and a DVD drive. Cable management is very nice, as the back side of the case has a "bump-out" that allows for plenty of room for all your cable needs.

Cons: There are no rubber covers on the holes for the cable management, so you see a bit of the mess through the case to the back side. I was able to avoid most of the clutter by using cable ties on the back of the case to hide the cables from view. The "acrylic" window is hardly see through. Without my lighted fans, you'd never be able to see inside the case!

Overall Review: Overall, I bought this on a sale, and it more than fulfilled my needs for a replacement case on an old computer that had no cable management. It looks so much better than my old case, and am actually thinking of using this case for a build for my daughter.

What a drive!

SanDisk SSD PLUS 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDA-480G-G25
SanDisk SSD PLUS 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDA-480G-G25

Pros: Installed / recognized very quickly on my system. Replaced a 250GB 7200 RPM drive. Used software to clone the drive over to the SSD, and after a quick shut down to unplug old drive, system booted within 8 seconds of hitting power button compared to a 36 second start time on old drive.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've had very good success with these drives. Had my brother order a couple for a build I did for him and was so impressed I bought one for myself. Going to buy a second one to use for a RAID.
