Great Monitor - Great price

KDS K-2626mdhwb 26" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor
KDS K-2626mdhwb 26" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: -Big! The colors don't deviate drastically depending on where you sit. -Has an HDMI port. -Uniform Color -Doesn't get very hot at all

Cons: -the menu is a pain to use, but that's not a huge deal seeing as you don't use it much.

Overall Review: This monitor is really amazing. The panel is superb, very bright, no dead pixels and no white ghosting/bleed through at the corners. I use this for design (graphic design, photos, etc.), and video and it stands up against the best. I was EXTREMELY worried about buying this monitor, because I thought it would be cheap and/or fail after a few weeks, but I'm here to say that you should not worry, purchase this as it has everything you'll need and at an unbeatable price. I've had 3 monitors from KDS so far, and each one seems to work without a hitch. One of my friends bought a "better" monitor for 2.5 times the price, he touts his monitors "amazing viewing angle" and color uniformity. Honestly, he paid 2.5 times the price of this monitor, for one that looks the same as mine! LOL!

Great all around speakers.

Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: -Downward facing bass works well, makes downstairs neighbors mad, but I enjoy that anyway ;-) -the speakers actually have sound output coming from the front as well as from the back (literally looks like its a doublesided speaker). If you place them on a desk against a wall, you get a nice full effect -they look sexy, I like the gloss finish and the not-too-bright-or-distracting LED on the volume nob that lets you know the speakers are on.

Cons: -none.

Overall Review: If you need some computer speakers, want them to look classy, want great sound reproduction, and need a headphone out and line in jack (there is one on the left speaker)...this is the best deal. I've found Logitech speakers to last me 4-6 years without ANY problems. They're quality. (I had to buy these because my wife got a little too into vacuuming and decided to vacuum my old logitech speaker cable ;-) )

Great PC Monitor + Fantastic TV

LG 37" 1080p LCD HDTV
LG 37" 1080p LCD HDTV

Pros: -many color correction options - you get the picture,color,brightness, just the way you want it. -swivel stand, easy setup and operation -fantastic menu, easy to make quick changes -amazing picture quality -lightweight and easy to move, doesn't heat up too much -classic design -unbeatable price (under $600) -no dead pixels or defects -super fast newegg shipping (on the east coast) -excellent computer monitor

Cons: absolutely none at all. seriously.

Overall Review: I purchased this after a lot of research (3 weeks worth) to use primarily as my computer monitor, not as a TV. I had my reservations about buying a TV as a monitor because I have the habit of listening to outspoken "color correction" elitists who always say it's a bad idea to use an HDTV as a monitor. I have a Mac Pro and do a lot of design work so I wanted a monitor that was a lot larger for a reasonable price. I also wanted one with adjustable color and a wide viewing angle. I realized that I could achieve this with a well built LCD TV, the LG 37LH30 was the perfect find! If you are looking at this TV to use as a monitor, you are making the right choice. I read previous reviews before purchasing that mentioned the text was hard to read/jagged. All you have to do is bring down the sharpness a bit, and it looks perfect. I use this for my XBOX 360 as well, and of course, it performs flawlessly, picture is amazing! Buy it, it's worth it.

Greatest headphones ever made

ICY DOCK - it's awesome

ICY DOCK MB559UEA-1SMB Aluminum body w/ partial plastic 3.5" SATA USB 2.0 &1394 External Enclosure
ICY DOCK MB559UEA-1SMB Aluminum body w/ partial plastic 3.5" SATA USB 2.0 &1394 External Enclosure

Pros: -Sleek Design -FireWire Ports -EASY installation -can be upright or flat -quiet

Cons: -The only con I can think of is the status light, it's pretty bright and, from a design standpoint, the light's too big. BUT that doesn't really matter, it's a good indicator of drive activity nonetheless.

Overall Review: Just buy it, you'll love it!

Great little unit!

5.25" Light Front Panel (Chameleon) Black Panel
5.25" Light Front Panel (Chameleon) Black Panel

Pros: Very easy to install. This unit was a great touch for the system I was building. The system was for my younger brother, and he wanted it to be a little modified. This was a cheap, easy, and fun way to provide that little extra something for his case.

Cons: The velcro is useless, it doesn't hold down the feet of the LEDs when you're installing them. I had to use tape. The LED's add nice AMBIENT light but are not super bright, my fan LEDs overpowered them. If you have a door on your system, great. If not, the panel lights of the unit itself are VERY bright, you may need to cover them (they're brighter than the LEDs inside!)

Overall Review: If you have a little extra money and want to add a little spiffyness to your system, this will work for you. However, if you've got a budget going on, don't even bother!
