Most Critical Review

DOA

Microsoft Wireless Laser Notebook Mouse 6000
Microsoft Wireless Laser Notebook Mouse 6000

Pros: I have other MS Laser Mice and they have worked fine but this is the second one out of five that was Dead on arrival.

Cons: It still has a USB dongle and as I said before this one was DOA

Overall Review: none to speak of other than Newegg rocks. Thanks goodness for their awesome RMA service

Not for Windows 7

Rosewill RC-217 SATA II 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 PCI RAID Card
Rosewill RC-217 SATA II 4 Port RAID 0/1/5/10 PCI RAID Card

Pros: None that I can speak of, other than it is cheap and easy to have a redundant card when it only costs 40 bucks.

Cons: I could not get this card to work with 4 Samsung 1.5 TB drives in RAID 5 config. I could seemingly create the RAID 5 array in card BIOS and then boot Windows, load the driver for the card and initialize the drive and format it. But, when I reboot windows afer formatting the 4.2 TB array, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit hangs on the Wndows blinking beacon logo screen. Apparently a driver issue. Also tried the SiI reference driver to no avail. Basically a waste of money for me.

Overall Review: I would like a fix to this but that looks unlikely given the age of this card so I would strongly suggest staying away from this card.

Seems tpo work fine

Western Digital Caviar WD2500BB 250GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works well, Installed easily and did not require a low level format.

Cons: Seems kind of slow. Gave it a foour just because no EIDE drive deserves a 5 anymore.

Overall Review: Good drive for a legacy application like the one I am using it in.

Works great

LG Black 6X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 40X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray/HD DVD-ROM & 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Model GGC-H20L
LG Black 6X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 40X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray/HD DVD-ROM & 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Model GGC-H20L

Pros: This drive is working great on a cheap little low profile box that I made with an AMD 4000+ X2 proc and it plays both blu-ray (beta-ray as I like to call them) and HD-DVDs.

Cons: The software that comes with the drive only supports 2-channed sound output. "No 5.1 for you, now get out of my store!!!" Oh well.

Overall Review: Too bad HD-DVDs lost to blu-ray. They really where a superior product.

Awesome MCE keyboard
