BEst for the money

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: -Best headset for the money -Good mike sound -Good overall sound -Comfortable

Cons: -mike requires adjustment at the start of a gaming session in order to not broadcast breathing while playing

Overall Review: Bought these over a year ago to replace a set of $90 active noice reduction headset that wore out. Did not expect these to last at the pricepoint they were at but have been pleasantly suprised by the quality and the durability. They are a great set as a starter set and also good if you are looking to buy multiple sets for several gaming rigs. Highly recommend these.

Most Critical Review

Fast but unreliable.

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 115GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G
OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 115GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G

Pros: Very fast and very inexpensive compared to other SSDs.

Cons: Prone to failing. I have gone thru 2 now in a little over a year.

Overall Review: I guess you get what you pay for. On the plus side OCZ did not ask any questins about RMAing the drive either time. Then again, it was almost like they expected it to be a Vertex 2 when I said my SSD failed. Low cost is nice but the high failure rate makes this thing a bust in my opinion.

Pros: +Spacious +Good Cable Management +Number of Included Fans +LED Lighting with seperate control +200mm FAN! +Mesh Case +Front I/O panel

Cons: -Propreitary Case Fans -Number of USB ports

Overall Review: Overall this is a great case for the money. I was looking to upgrade and decided to replace my workhorse Antec Sonata II Case that I have had for five years (have built my last two systems in that one.) The cooling is excellent and provided rock solid air flow for my overclocking needs. I added a single 140mm fan to the bottom in the space allowed but otherwise the case has excellent fans in ever other space. The only downside to the case fans is that the LED lit ones are propreitary Rosewill fans so adding one that is led lit requires buying from Newegg (no issue if you do not want to use lighitng on it.) A great addition is a small fan mounted on the oposite side of the case beneath the space on the motherboard where the CPU sits. The only other minus and it is a small one is that the case only includes two built in usb ports. Would have liked more but not enough to remove an egg. I would highly recommned this case for a midlevel gaming rig.

Great quality for the Price

MASSCOOL FD12025S1L3/4 120mm Case Cooling Fan
MASSCOOL FD12025S1L3/4 120mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: -Price -Quality

Cons: -None

Overall Review: Just replace 3 fans on my system that were several years old. They are exceptional fans for the price. Quiet, adjustable and they push a good volume of air. Very happy with the purchase.

The Guarantee makes it worth the money

OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2G8004GK

Pros: -Excellent lifetime waranty -Fast and stable

Cons: -One of my 1st set failed but the guarantee and OCZ customer service made up for the inconvience

Overall Review: I bought a 4GB kit when I built my new system. Worked fine for about a year and then my memory went bad. OCZ was unable to replace them (they no longer made them) but offered me a refund at market value for them. Due to NewEgg's pricing I was able to purchase two 4GB kits to replace them and my system runs stable and fast. OCZ even let me hold off sending the bad memory in, until the new memory arrived from NewEgg (one DIMM was still working). Great customer service from OCZ. I will continue to buy from them in the future.
