Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK
Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK

Pros: I purchased this unit the first time because of the cheap price. It serves its purpose. Its not an expensive fancy unit. It comes with a carry case, and isn't much heavier then the hard drive that goes in it. I've gotten many uses from this little gadget, I purchased one for a friend. Several of my tech buddies see me use it, and have asked me where I got it. Many of them are owners of one now.

Cons: dont really have any

stable power supply

Pros: purchased this power supply to power my firewall server. Didn't need a high watt power supply for this. Had a instant rebate with free shipping. Couldn't beat that for an Antec power supply.

Cons: none

cheap and good

Pros: This case was cheap, but was worth every penny. Built for my firewall.

Cons: metal around expension slots was flimsy. Not really bad though, i've had worse with other cases. Really easy to install motherboard in.

good buy

Pros: bought this motherboard as a combo deal. I'm a big fan of gigabyte boards. I dont find much flaws in their boards.

Cons: I was using a monitor with DVI, the motherboard didn't detect it during boot up like it should have. I had to plug an analog cable in to configure it. This was the only thing I had problems with.

bang for your buck

Pros: Worked as its suppose to. Replaced my p3/500, and even with single processor, it serves well for my firewall.

Cons: none

Excellent GPS

Nextar 4.3" Navigation System with TTS
Nextar 4.3" Navigation System with TTS

Pros: This device has the ability to hold 300 favorites/contacts. If your at an amusement park, you can park your car, select for it to save current gps location, and when leaving the park have the gps take you right to your car. It pronounces street names, and is pretty accurate on giving precise directions. It comes with a mount for the car, ac charger, car charger, and a carrying case.

Cons: I had to train myself on how to locate Points of Interest. I've used GPS devices that were really basic, and it seemed that it was easier to find what I was looking for. Now that I've learned what im doing with this device, its pretty easy. It does take a few seconds to recalculate if you miss a turn. The smaller devices seem to readjust in a flash.

Overall Review: I was looking around on the manufacturers website for the posibility of updating the maps or even the points of interest. After digging around for about an hour, I found out that I cant update this particular devices as of right now. The site that does their maps, NAVTEQ and they kept pointing me back to Nextar to update the maps.
