Most Favorable Review

Amazing for the price!

ASUS Laptop M50 Series M50Vm-B2 Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium
ASUS Laptop M50 Series M50Vm-B2 Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium

Pros: Great screen with high resolution, loads of amazing features, awesome value, and runs most games. Shiny surface and design is really cool looking. This laptop runs half-life 2 lost coast on full settings . Blue Tooth, Wireless N, and Light Scribe. New egg shipped same day.

Cons: A little on the heavy side, but i knew that prior to buying, not a big deal.

Overall Review: Doesn't have blu-ray, but I would never use it anyway. This is Not a gaming computer, it is not made to run the newest games on full settings, the 9600GS is a good card, but it will not run Crysis on high or very high, very well, and if you plan on running New games, then plan on spending at least 3000 dollars on your next laptop.

Most Critical Review

Not the best.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: -Works -Transfers heat from cpu to heatsink/waterblock with mediocre performance. -Easy to spread (if that is how you prefer to apply the TIM)

Cons: -Long Cure Time -Extreme pain in the asset to clean off even with 99% rubbing alcohol. -Stains cpu heat spreader and wants to get stuck in corners and leak around. -Not even close to being the best performing TIM -Expensive -Conductive (Yeah, even a little bit counts)

Overall Review: I honestly don't know why this stuff is so popular... I've used a pretty wide variety of TIMs and looked at a lot of tests and reviews. My favorite so far is MX4 -No cure time, Better than AS-5 in performance, easy to clean off, inexpensive, and non-conductive.

Works Nice

"KAZE Q" Fan Controller
"KAZE Q" Fan Controller

Pros: Works great, has solid construction. Brushed aluminum looks great sitting in the floppy slot of my black case

Cons: Fits VERY tight in a 3.5" drive slot making it hard to install; no biggie Can't turn fans OFF. Also no big deal

Overall Review: Comes with extension cables; a nice touch.

Look No Further

NETGEAR SRXN3205-100NAS Wireless-N VPN Firewall
NETGEAR SRXN3205-100NAS Wireless-N VPN Firewall

Pros: -Price -Great range and speed of wlan -Fairly easy setup -IPsec VPN works better than my previous Symantec VPN/Firewall 200 -Works great for a small buisness network -Good firewall

Cons: -To my understanding, requires Netgear VPN client for IPsec.

Overall Review: Netgear tech support is very good as well.
