Kaybles Model DVI-DD-6FT Black 6 ft. M-M Premium DVI Digital Dual-Link with Ferrites M/M 6 feet - OEM

Pros: Heavy Sheathing Good Connectors Better Picture Worked With New Graphics Card

Cons: Did not come with winning lottery ticket numbers as I had specifically requested.

Overall Review: I work in an IT department, and deal with ridiculous numbers of cables, this is a very good quality one and is on par with the best we've bought from our vendors.

Long Life, Low Noise

Enermax Marathon 80mm Silent PC Case Fan UC-8EB
Enermax Marathon 80mm Silent PC Case Fan UC-8EB

Pros: Extremely quiet while running. Has been going for 2+ years on a home theater PC. The addition of just one fixed a poor build a friend had made. Good airflow for small, quiet, inexpensive fan.

Cons: It did not make case levitate a foot off the ground.

Overall Review: Would, and will end up repurchasing more of these little fellows in the future as builds require.

SYBA PCI to Parallel Port Controller Card Model SD-PCI-1P
SYBA PCI to Parallel Port Controller Card Model SD-PCI-1P

Pros: Worked Kept legacy (pre-y2k) office junk functional far beyond its lifespan.

Cons: Kept legacy office junk functional FAR beyond its lifespan...which means I had to keep supporting it.

Overall Review: Legacy ports, sometimes you have to have them.

It's Purple!

BYTECC C6EB-3P 3 ft. Cat 6 Purple Enhanced 550MHz Patch Cables
BYTECC C6EB-3P 3 ft. Cat 6 Purple Enhanced 550MHz Patch Cables

Pros: Worked Did not stop working after plugging in I like anti-snag cable ends Can easily tell which cable this one is due to color

Cons: Transfers don't happen before I click the download button.

Overall Review: Most home networks don't need Cat6, but heck, it's so cheap these days, might as well future proof.

Very Good Deal

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7Q-16GBRL
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7Q-16GBRL

Pros: Very big jump in responsiveness, then again the pc in question went from 4 gigs to 16. Needed memory for virtual machines, and this did the job in spades.

Cons: Case is yellow and black, RAM is red, so if you open the case, move the wiring bundle that covers the RAM, and take a picture like that, it clashes slightly with the color scheme.

Overall Review: The RAM is bottle-necked by other parts now.

Good Starter

D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150
D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150

Pros: I've owned this little guy for approximately two years now, I like to wait before I review things It has been a decent unit, with fair range and speed for the length of time that I have owned it. And it did outperform a much more expensive draft-n router that a friend had, we lived near each other and with like settings I could connect to my router in his apartment, he could not connect to his in mine.

Cons: As time has gone on it does appear to need more frequent restarting than it used to, and loses connection partway through video streams on my smart tv. Too many separate internal file transfers will also cause some slowdown.

Overall Review: Will be updating to a somewhat more current router and will possibly use this as a booster for my yard. Also I was re-configuring my network today and noticed that the date could not progress farther than 2012, I guess dlink bought that whole Mayan apocalypse thing. For those of you that need time based settings, the newest firmware lets you go to 2017. Which reminds me, I need to Google 2017 apocalypse predictions to see what is happening then.

Quick Shipping, Pretty Obvious Knockoff

Much cheaper plastic frames than my real Nike sunglasses, weird non-retail packaging. Pretty much what you get when you buy from an unbranded sunglasses hut in a mall.
