Excellent Card, Excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Patriot 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model PSF16GSDHC6
Patriot 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model PSF16GSDHC6

Pros: 16 GB on the size of a card almost the thickness of a piece of chewing gum! This card is very fast, and I used i every day in multiple devices - My Flash based camcorder, Digital Camera, Portable media player, you name it! As long as your devices are SDHC compatible, you should have no problem at all. The cards is very high in quality, Labels are sharp and crisp, and the plastic has a very nice consistent texture on it. LIFETIME WARRANTY ON ALL PATRIOT PRODUCTS! After extensive use and abuse, however, the card did die on me, and I blame myself for it. (Read OTHER THOUGHTS below for continuation)

Cons: [....This is not a CON....] I bought this months ago for about seventy ($70~) dollars. This just shows how much the price of SD memory in general can just fall within months, even with the current financial crisis. It is now Oct. 31st and the card has slashed itself down to 32.99! Imagine when much larger cards come out, just wait maybe 4 months, and the rices will drop at least 30%~40% within that time range!

Overall Review: HOWEVER I Repeat, H O W E V E R ~ I sent in an RMA form and read about Patriot Memory's LIFETIME WARRANTY. As I was about o give up hope and toss my $70 card out into the bin, I gave it a shot. I filled out an RMA form, got my RMA number and shipped it. Several days later, I received my tracking number and WHAM! A NEW 16GB card at my doorstep! WOW! This is great! This would mean I would never need to buy another card again, unless I lose the card or need another for other purposes. + A Million for Patriot Techs customer service!

Drive DOA

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K2000 HDS722020ALA330 (0F10311) 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K2000 HDS722020ALA330 (0F10311) 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: cheap

Cons: Drive was DOA. Would slow down PC POST tests, and even cause BSOD's. Also when mounted in a USB HDD dock dosent read, only spins and clicks - no bueno. How do I go about getting an RMA or Replacement? I really regret my purchase...

Overall Review: Step up your game Newegg. Please do personally check that the products (especially refurbished products) are functional before shipping.

Rosewill RX-DU101 Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 Docking Station

Pros: Easy to use, plug and play! Great for those handling multiple systems and troubleshooting.

Cons: Eject button is iffy, nothing wrong with yanking the drive out.

Overall Review: Highly recommend!

Excellent Processor!

Intel Core i3-550 - Core i3 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Desktop Processor - BX80616I3550
Intel Core i3-550 - Core i3 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Desktop Processor - BX80616I3550

Pros: Awesome Overclocker! This is my first upgrade since the LGA775 days. Paired with a T5 XE P55 Mobo, and topped with a 30$ range aftermarket cooler. I limited myself to the 1.4v Max provided the given specs from Intel, I was able to hit 4.3GHz Rock Solid Stable!

Cons: No cons what so ever! Though I wish they made chips without the built in GPU.

Overall Review: I was quite surprised by how COOL this chip runs! even with the aftermarket cooler, its very tempting to go over safe voltage zone, as it runs very cool at high clock speeds. 4.0GHz is no longer something impossible to approach for the novice overclocker. Well done intel!

Hits the Spot!

Killing Floor PC Game
Killing Floor PC Game

Pros: It was what as I expected. A relatively simple shooting platform which involves some degree of teamwork and Strategy during online play. I appreciate that it Isn't similar in gameplay dynamics as in L4D (i.e. common characteristics shared with HL2 engine based games like Insane Bunny Hopping and Halo-like bullet spray). Though some may argue the two games are alike - they are totally different and hold their own. Graphics are great and takes advantage of HDR Enviorments. Not really a "First Rate" game, this feels alot like a well produced Indie Game. Don't expect a L4D replacement, but a L4D Alternative instead. To be honest - at a low price of 20$ and getting a Hard Copy (compared to the digital copies sold on Steam for the same price)- its totally worth it.

Cons: Slightly Repetitive. This becomes a non-issue when playing with friends or playing with good team mates online. Can scare the Buhjezuzz out of you if you aren't prepared!

Overall Review: Overall a 9/10.
