Very nice

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Bought this to build a gaming rig. Couldn't ask for more expandable capabilities. I've got an AMD FX 8 core running on it, 32 gbs of RAM, and two 1gb 256 bit SLI cards, and it's been a champ. There is even a temp display, convenient CMOS reset and power button right on the board. Someone said in an earlier review that they had two Nvidia SLI cards as well, and they would not work/configure correctly - they got a bad board. All my hardware snapped in and worked like clockwork out of the boxes. This board has been a breeze.

Cons: None

Excellent Quality

Seiki 32" Class 1080p 60hz LED TV - SE32FY22
Seiki 32" Class 1080p 60hz LED TV - SE32FY22

Pros: After spending nearly a grand on the ultimate gaming PC over the course of a year, I really didn't want to splurge on a fancy monitor due to some recent finance changes. I was a little skeptical ordering this because of the low price and the brand name which I wasn't familiar with. Well, I hooked it up via HDMI cable and the picture is waaaay more vibrant than my top of the line LED Samsung monitor, and it has a lot more display settings as well. At first I was a bit perplexed because my desktop was being cut off at the bottom where my taskbar was, and changing the resolution on my video card settings was not fixing it. Then I read the handy dandy manual and realized I needed to turn the scan setting off. Everything has been a breeze thus far.

Cons: None, except my Vizio TV remote likes to turn on the Seiki as well when I am laying in bed trying to watch my 42", haha.

Excellent Signal

NETGEAR WNDA4100-100NAS Ultimate Performance N900 Dual-Band Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 450+450Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Always get Excellent signal. I can even pickup networks in the apartment building down the street with excellent signal. Easy setup, but a bit gawdy if you have it on the front of your box. Also, it will not fit in the rear with other USB peripherals plugged in since it is a bit wide. I like it though :)

Cons: None that make it not worth ordering.

Fast but Loud

Pros: This hard drive performs well, but is a little noisy for the price / supposed quality, I think.

Cons: Loud

Great Cleaning Capabilities

Pros: At first I was concerned because I was holding the button down to produce steam for a good 10 minutes the first use, and nothing was happening. All of a sudden right before I decided to box it up and file an RMA, it started spitting a bit then started steaming properly. Since then it has been working well without any hiccups. I would not suggest cleaning any colored upholstery with it vigorously, I managed to partially steam off some color on my couch arms, and (unnoticeably) melted some fibers as well I think. This thing is powerful for being so little. I have been cleaning our tan carpeting with it though where there is high traffic and it has been wonderful. I also love doing the shower doors and other bathroom areas. I also was able to get a stain out of our fake wooden floors that developed in front of the door from ground in dirt. This thing leaves behind fuzzies though on glass surfaces. Getting baked on junk off your stove and surrounding areas is a breeze though, and our white cabinets no longer have icky yellowed fingerprints all over them. This is a good cleaning buddy.

Cons: None

Good Quality

Pros: Fast read/write, no hiccups yet. Seemed a just a tad loud, but hey .. I have yet to buy one of the same quality that didn't make a little whirrr at least.

Cons: None yet.
