Decent System

Genius SW-5.1 1000 25 watts 5.1CH Surround System
Genius SW-5.1 1000 25 watts 5.1CH Surround System

Pros: Easy setup, good cable length, convenient size

Cons: a little static, but not really that bad at all.

Overall Review: Totally give it a 5. I'd pay more for what I got.

Most Critical Review

Do Not Buy

Jabra BT2020 Bluetooth Headset
Jabra BT2020 Bluetooth Headset

Pros: Very comfortable

Cons: It simply doesn't work for a phone it is compatible for. I bought it as a gift for fathers day for an LG VX9900 phone, which is on the compatible list for this device on Jabra's website. It was delivered 2 days later than the scheduled date, and is too static ridden to use. The range is around 3 inches. Now it's costing me an additional 10 bucks to RMA.

Absolute Garbage

Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM)
Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM)

Pros: Easily forgettable.

Cons: Backlight went out 2 weeks after it arrived. I'd forgotten I even bought it until I was cleaning out my storage unit and saw it.

Overall Review: I called for an RMA, but it was going to cost half the price of the monitor to fix.

Review After 1 Year

Creative HS-1200 USB Connector Circumaural Digital Wireless Gaming Headset
Creative HS-1200 USB Connector Circumaural Digital Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: Very good sound, very well insulated so you blasting music or video games doesn't disturb the person next to you.

Cons: The wireless function hasn't ever been very good. You have to have a clear line of sight to the computer and be within about 10 feet or it cuts out completely. Addedly the battery life is horrible, from day 1 at most 20 minutes of wireless before it dies.

Overall Review: Overall I won't be purchasing a new one of these. 100 dollars a year for a headset is far too much. After 1 year the headset turns off immediately even if it's plugged in when it's in use. It no longer even beeps that it's dieing, it just dies. The headset seemed sturdy and well built but after 1 car ride moving from one house to another the left ear piece has something loose in it that rattles around. I'm looking for a suitable replacement, and won't be going with this headset again

And that's all she wrote

MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Provided everything I needed for a really nice gaming rig

Cons: After 4 months the power connector jpw1 shorted out. This cost me not only the motherboard itself but also my powersupply. Fortunately the power supply was more expensive than the board and is covered by a warranty. The board itself is not however, and now I may also need a new processor.

Overall Review: I will not ever buy another MSI product after this, nor will I refer one to my customers.

I'm in love <3
