Cons: Dusty, red blinking light indicating fault - looks like dead battery.
Overall Review: If you are going to buy dyson, buy new. Had similar issue with certified refurbished air purifier from dyson recertification - DOA.
Pros: Used it for my build as I needed a drive to install the OS.
Overall Review: No Problems so far.
Pros: Used this as I needed to replace a aftermarket controller I had. I recommend to buy the OEM part, as I have had nothing but trouble from the aftermarket controls.
Pros: Excellent board for cheap builds.
Cons: No USB 3.0 or HDMI
Pros: Quieter than the stock fan, and great for my build in a apex mi-008 case. Very quiet in my build.
Overall Review: Intel G530
8GB Gskill 1600 DDR3
ITX Foxconn H61S
Apex MI-008 with power supply
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Samsung DVD burner
Pros: Some people may not like it, but I think it is great. I saw a noticeable performance boost over Windows 7 on my computer.
Overall Review: Actually has lower machine requirements than Windows 7....
Pros: Fast burner with great features. Have had no problems with it so far.
Pros: Great price for a large drive. Used in a build for a friend as his storage drive. I have had no complaints from him so far.
Pros: Fast, reliable and a perfect size for a OS disk.
Cons: Should have gotten a bigger drive to store applications on it.
Pros: Excellent monitor with great clarity and colors. Have had no problems so far, and it is HDCP compliant, allowing me to use it with my PS3 - the speakers also work through HDMI.
Cons: Speakers are not too good... but they are built-in speakers, so i did not expect them to be good.
Pros: Great to see how much power is being consumed.
Pros: SATA cable.... nothing else really.
Cons: Its a cable.
Pros: Good case with removable cage that can be taken out without tools. No problems so far.
Cons: Very heavy for its size...
Pros: Had no problems with them so far. Hope it stays this way.
Overall Review: Got them for $50 shipped.
Pros: Great for low power HTPC. Used Apex MI-008 case for a machine with small footprint that fit my needs. I got this in a deal with free 8GB Gskill ram.
Pros: Built 2 Mini ITX systems - one with Intel G550, and another with E 350 APU. Both are running great with no problems.... Both are very quiet and hard to tell if they are on.
Cons: A little wiggling is needed to fit the DVD drive and HD.
Pros: No problems installing it or having mobo recognizing ram. I had to use XMP to get the RAM running at full speed (1866), as it was clocked at 1333 when I first installed it. Other than that, No problems at all.
Overall Review: Remember to change the clock in BIOS in order to utilize the full speed of this RAM.

Cons: No Esata, and only 2 memory stick slots.
Pros: One of the main reasons I bought a PS3...
Pros: Back-lit keyboard, easily removable keys for cleaning.
Cons: Hard to press keys with too little travel. Feels cheap, and due to the keys, does not register some keystrokes. Keys sometimes get stuck.
Pros: Not much positive to say.
Cons: Felt cheap, failed in 6 months. I do not recommend this mouse as it feels very cheap and not put together well. I got it with RIKB-11004 keyboard, and both were poor products.

Overall Review: Got it free with one of my orders.
