terrible

TDK 8.5GB 8X DVD+R DL 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48973
TDK 8.5GB 8X DVD+R DL 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48973

Pros: none

Cons: i bought these disks to burn xbox 360 backups with my macbook... out of the 20 disks only about 4 actually worked. the rest either failed while burning or would give me "disk read errors." dont be seduced by the cheaper price or free shipping these are a waste of money! even with the verbatims made in 1ndia i've had a 100% success rate

review w/ macbook Al

Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9320421AS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9320421AS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: i bought this drive to upgrade the 160gb 5400rpm drive for the new unibody aluminum macbooks. the instructions on apple's website aren't very clear so to install the drive make sure you have a size 00 philips screwdriver. also, there are 4 torx T6 size dowels that are attached the the old harddrive that need to be taken off and put into the new drive for it to seat properly. i didn't have that size torx so i just used a linesman style plier to do it.

Cons: for this notebook there is definitely a significant increase in vibrations and noise. before the notebook was almost silent. its actually pretty annoying when you are typing at the same time its spinning up because you can physically feel your wrists vibrating.

good product

D-Link ANT24-0400 2.4GHz Omni-Directional 4dBi Indoor Antenna
D-Link ANT24-0400 2.4GHz Omni-Directional 4dBi Indoor Antenna

Pros: worked like a charm brought my reception from nonexistent to excellent

Cons: it looks like the third picture its a lot bigger then i realized the antenna itself is practically a foot tall

Overall Review: it look me a few trys running up and down the stairs to get the angle right before i got perfect reception at my furthest away computer so make sure you fiddle with it a little bit it really makes all the difference

XTERASYS AN-EXT External 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Antenna Extension
XTERASYS AN-EXT External 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Antenna Extension

Pros: increases signal quality significatly

Cons: wish the wire was longer

Overall Review: my room is about as far away from my wireless router as you can get in the house and it barely catches a signal, with this antenna i went from poor to good/ excellent. the only problem is that the wire for it barely reaches my desk where it sits.
