Wavlink USB Hub, 4-Port USB 3.0 Portable Aluminum Hub ,USB Extension Multi-function USB Dock Hot Swapping Support for iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, or any PC [Silver] Model :3048

Pros: - Aluminum shell so is very durable - USB 3.0 - Nice little blue LED to know when working. - A port for a 5v adapter, for devices that require more power. ( Not included, but I did not need )

Cons: - What would be nice is if the cable was just a little longer, but not really a factor. I knew the length before buying.

Overall Review: These hubs are really nice. I ordered 3 because of my need for multiple computers to have a USB hub. I use 1 with a MacMini and the other 2 with PC's, and it works perfect for all. I was wanting to put the hub on top of the PC', but the cord is too short. Not really a big deal though. I knew this before I purchased the item. My guess is for more compactness, the cord is short. Highly recommend! There is a port for a 5v adapter, if you need more power for devices that require it, but all i used it for was a keyboard, mouse, and a USB sound card.

Pros: Cheap...

Cons: 1st Case broken, 2nd case broken worse... 3rd time the charm?

Perfect for what I needed

Athena Power CABLE-MPCIE4628 6 in. / 8 in.  Cable Male to Male
Athena Power CABLE-MPCIE4628 6 in. / 8 in. Cable Male to Male

Pros: - Adds two PCI-E 6+2 connectors from 2 unused molex connectors - Durable and easy to hook up - Use for a PCI-E device needing more power

Cons: None, worked perfect for my needs

Overall Review: I needed this for a new video card that required 2 PCI-E power cables. Worked perfect right out of the box.

Good reliable drive

Intel 320 Series 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSA2BW160G3H (Recertified)

Pros: - Fast - Reliable

Cons: - Recertified worries me only because of past experiences from other manufacturers with recertified drives failing within a year

Overall Review: Benchmark tests: 167MB Write 267MB Read

Works as expected

WD Blue 3TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EZRZ

Pros: - I find WD hard drives to be of the most reliable - Good quality hardware

Cons: - None to report

Overall Review: I've seen the reviews and opinions of people claiming what hard drive is the best. But best is really dictated by reliability. This drive is replacing a Seagate hard drive that has failed. The drive was just 2 1/2 years old when it failed, and no longer under warranty. Out of all hard drives that I've owner, Seagate is by far the worst. No seagate hard drive that I have ever owned has lasted more than 4 years. Every one of them have suffered catastrophic failure, resulting in complete data loss. I recommend having a backup of your data, if it's on a Seagate drive, or replace with a more reliable product. Benchmarks I am seeing are inline with what the drive's specifications are. I expect this drive to last quite awhile

Worked perfect

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11D-8GSL
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11D-8GSL

Pros: upgraded from 2 x 1GB sticks to the max memory of 8GB ( 2 x 4GB ). Performed beyond expectations Have a certain confidence in G.SKILL products over most other memory manufacturers. Of all the memory modules purchased, I've only ever had to return one, after 8 years of continuous use.

Cons: No cons to really point out. This product exceeded my expectations

Overall Review: Did I say this exceeded my expectations?
