G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBSQ
G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBSQ

Pros: Bought 4 sticks of these and they worked perfectly in my 2011 27" iMac. OSX and Windows 7 recognized all 16GB of RAM. Lifetime warranty seals the deal. Couldn't be happier.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Don't worry about the compatibility between 10660 and 10666 - both work fine for DDR3-1333 sticks.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1800 MCE - White Box 1129 PCI-Express x1 Interface
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1800 MCE - White Box 1129 PCI-Express x1 Interface

Pros: analog/digital/astc tuner, comes with fm radio (antenna cable is included too!), one of the few cards that use pci-e x1, relatively inexpensive compared to other brands.

Cons: software still sucks after all these years. wintv 6 feels like just a skin of wintv2000 - stick with using windows xp mce or vista mce, or a 3rd party alternative like beyondtv or dscaler. hdtv signals get choppy at times, and analog/digital tv can get really grainy sometimes. software will randomly crash even after a new reformat/install of windows, driver cd does NOT work with card - you have to go to hauppauge's website and download their latest drivers to get the card totally working - at least thats how it was for me. software/driver install is weird for first time beginners.

Overall Review: remember, this card uses the pci-e x1 slot, NOT the traditional pci slot. overall, this is a decent card if you want to watch analog/digital tv, but i dont think this card is ready for primetime hdtv yet. i would recommend waiting for the next generation of hdtv cards, or possibly even waiting until 1080p cards and content come out to buy one. honestly, stick with your cable/satellite tv hd-dvr if you want to watch and record hd channels.

Patriot Wildfire 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PW240GS25SSDR
Patriot Wildfire 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PW240GS25SSDR

Pros: extremely fast, comes with a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to use in desktops, packaging is great, and is pretty much the cheapest "max iops" 2nd generation sandforce drive you can get today.

Cons: absolutely none.

Overall Review: no firmware updates needed! works 100% out of the box with osx 10.6/10.7 and windows xp/7.

The best laptop ram for the lowest price i've ever seen!

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ

Pros: Installed and works perfectly in an early 2011 15" Apple Macbook Pro, 2.2Ghz Core i7, Radeon 6750 1GB, and Seagate Momentus XT 500GB. Detects all 8GB and is flawless in both OSX 10.6.6 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64 in Boot Camp. Did I mention that it comes with a lifetime warranty as well? Cheap price + lifetime warranty = a win in my book.

Cons: Absolutely none at all!

Overall Review: I remember buying 4GB sticks of DDR3-1066 for around $95 a piece last August and thinking that was cheap. Look how much you can get an 8GB kit for - under $100! It is a complete no brainer to upgrade to 8GB!

G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model F3-8500CL7S-4GBSQ
G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model F3-8500CL7S-4GBSQ

Pros: i purchased two sticks of these, and they both work absolutely fine in my mid 2010 15" macbook pro with core i7. mac osx 10.6.3/10.6.4 detects and uses all 8GB, as well as in boot camp running windows 7 ultimate x64.

Cons: none at all.

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: its seagate, 32MB cache, quiet, cheap for what you get, VERY fast, and its the newest generation 7200.11 drives.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: remember, this is the OEM drive, so it just comes with the drive and thats it! no cables, no manual, no screws, just the drive!
