Most Critical Review

Save your money, its junk.

NETGEAR WNA1100-100ENS N150  Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
NETGEAR WNA1100-100ENS N150 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Works fine on linux (maybe because there is uses working drivers..)

Cons: BSoDs me on windows (bad drivers). Reception is poor (but what can you expect from an adapter with no antenna). 30 dollars for a USB key is a joke, add 10 dollars and you can buy a nice high gain adapter from alfa. Works really warm.

Overall Review: I bought this to do security testing on backtrack. Reaver works fine, injection, etc are inconclusive (depends on the access point really).

Not durable at all

ARCTIC P531 TRUE 5.1 Surround Sound USB Professional Gaming PC Headset
ARCTIC P531 TRUE 5.1 Surround Sound USB Professional Gaming PC Headset

Pros: Decent sound quality Simulated 7.1 surround (not true surround, it's hard to point direction aside from left/right on sound alone).

Cons: Wires are very weakly done, they break very easily, first in the sound control unit (which doesn't even have the support rubber that like every single cable that doesn't come from apple does), then inside the earcups. I started having problems around the 3rd month of use. This is the kind of durability you'd expect from a 15 dollar headset. Also Corsair's warranty doesn't cover regular wear and tear, so unless they arrived broken you can say that this product has no warranty.

Not worth it.

RAZER Lycosa Keyboard
RAZER Lycosa Keyboard

Pros: Nice black color. Backlit. Audio control. Comfortable.

Cons: Tends to hang randomly (last thing you want while in game is to dive under the desk, find the cable and replug it). No additional keys for macros. Lighting tends to shut down for no apparent reason. Lighting button tends to be unresponsive every so often. Very limited lighting options (Everything on, WASD only, everything off). After about a year of use areas of the keyboard start getting dim. Fingerprint magnet.

Great, but not perfect.

ASUS VS Series VS247H-P 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz HDMI VGA DVI-D SPLENDID Modes Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor
ASUS VS Series VS247H-P 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz HDMI VGA DVI-D SPLENDID Modes Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor

Pros: Full HD Great colors Great brightness Good responsiveness Good for gaming and office/school work

Cons: Flimsy stand HDMI output is messed up (image looks zoomed out with large black borders) Wires point to the rear rather than downward so its impossible to mount it closer than 1.5-2 inches to the wall Asus logo on the bottom bezel can break off very easily Supports 75hz ONLY on lower resolutions

Overall Review: Overall I am satisfied with the monitor hence why I taken only 1 egg off, however if you are looking for a screen to use solely with HDMI, or one that can support 1920x1080@75hz I suggest looking for a different screen.

Worth the cost

BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH
BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit Wireless Router - WZR-HP-G300NH

Pros: Fast Good QoS Decent range Decent stock software (based largely off DD-WRT)

Cons: Check whenever its 300NH or 300NH2, attempting to flash NH2 with NH firmware will brick it

Overall Review: I got this to replace an old linksys router that gave me lag spikes every time there was more than 1 device using the network. I couldn't be more satisfied.
