Pros: Mounting drive adapter for SSD that does exactly what it's meant to do. Good for mounting two SSD drives, good space between drive for air to pass through. Sturdy design and worth the price.
Overall Review: Cheap and easy adapter for those pesky drives that lack the adapter despite high price. They know who they are.
Pros: Good speed for upgrading older machines. Despite slower speeds than more expensive SSD's the drive manages to speed up any machines that can utilize sata3 connections. I bought this specifically to upgrade and older AMD machine and found the results great. No problems installing OS or have I had any problems with lockups or the sleep mode problems some SSD have.
Cons: Speeds could be better, bare bone product with no mounting rack which could have added more value. I had to buy a mounting rack adding to the overall price but found a cheap solution. Overall a good product but with reservations, the speeds being the largest factors that one should consider if purchasing this product but expect slower speed, not terrible but noticeable when compared to higher end drives. Limited space makes the drive only suitable for an OS drive matched with a large drive for storage and data space.
Overall Review: No regrets purchasing drive but I also understand that for storage the larger version may be more suitable for needs for buyer.
Pros: The BenQ 27" monitor is a good product at a good price, low latency and a nice looking screen. The angles are a good as a desk monitor, "chest level". Colors are good and haven't seen any significant problems. Many display modes for various applications(for use with media center ect.).
Cons: Limited interfaces. The monitor has DVi, HDMI and VGA, the last being almost useless except for older hardware and machines. No Display port which would have made this monitor perfect for multi-monitor setups.Cumbersome monitor interface that makes menus movement slow and confusing.
Overall Review: This monitor has been useful for desktop and with my laptop for small projects requiring a larger screen than a 15 in. screen.
Pros: Lite-on items tends to be perceived low end in the hardware spectrum but I found if you take care of the product and not abuse them, they tend to last for a long time. I've purchased a few DVD drives in the past and haven't had a problem with them and this drive is no exception. It's small and portable, burns fast and haven't had a disc error since purchasing this product. The single usb cable that both powers and transfers data is simple and clutter free. Setup was as simple as plug in and play with no problems at all. I bought this drive on sale and would recommend others doing the same. No regrets.
Cons: The product's case feels cheap and although the thing doesn't rattle, it's light enough to easily knock over but a clumsy user shouldn't be the fault of the manufacture.
Pros: The size and speed are good for the price, very useful for older machines that I own.
Cons: Wished the formatting took less space, roughly three gigabytes are wasted and cannot be used.
Overall Review: Good product, even better if you can get it on sale. The speeds on older machines are decent but used with an actual usb 3.0 connection it's actually quiet good.
Pros: this board has all the newest features a new motherboard should have at a good price and great for gamer on a budget. Feature rich with usb 3.0, sata3 and 8x8 crossfire which is a lot of bang for your buck.
Cons: Awkwardly placed audio pins and cpu fan pins keep this from being a better board as they require you to criss-cross cables across the board.
Overall Review: received this board one day after I ordered it and ran like a champ, installation was easy and was a great upgrade from a athlon 4400. I was able to unlock a fourth core from a x3 athlon II but ran into visual distortions and so changed it back to a x3. Overall happy with board and features.
Pros: Decent speed for a decent price
Cons: Not very overclockable (but I knew that going in)
Overall Review: Put this in a asrock 870 extreme3 2.0 and was able to unlock fourth core but ran into visual distortions but other than that decent cpu
