Great Tv for the $$$

42" HD Display
42" HD Display

Pros: Great price, Nice packaging for the quick air mailed delivery from AIT. Tv doesn't have as high of a contrast as the high end tv's, but for the price it looks amazing. You must have HDMI/DVI to really appreciate the quality. Using composite AV cables looks bad. Colorstream (Green, BLue, Red) is also decent. If you buy this make sure you get a DVI cable / HDMI online for much less money than in rip off stores like WorstBuy.

Cons: No Tuner. Contrast ratio isn't all that high, but for the amount of money paid. You can't complain. Great tv for being right on / under four figures.

Overall Review: The tuner wasn't really a biggie for me, I needed a new dvd player so I bought a dvd/vhs combo with an upconverter hdmi. You can use a cable box / digital cable box for tuner. Or any vhs. Tv came in GREAT shape. not a single scratch, or any sign that it wasn't built right here in my room. :) NO DEAD PIXELS!!!

OUCH

Logitech Extreme 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural PC Gaming Headset
Logitech Extreme 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural PC Gaming Headset

Pros: Cheap, the sound is good, sturdy construction...looks...iguess.

Cons: hurts your ears! The plastic arm that wraps around your ears to hold it in place has a little "ditch" where the two ends of the plastic don't quite meet. Stupidly they put that on the inside where it has contact with the back of your ear. It really does hurt. To the point of getting excruciating after an hour of gaming.

Overall Review: I wouldn't buy these again...thank goodness my dog tore it apart.

Red Hot!

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model F4-2666C15Q-16GRR

Pros: Booted up with out any hiccups in my MSI x99s SLI plus board. With my 5280x. Beautiful heat-syncs, this sticks are great.

Cons: System information only shows 12GB of ram, this is a 16gb kit. Whatever I do I can't get it to recognize the 4x4GB sticks. My bios knows there is 4, but won't see 16gb. Guess I'm going to have to RMA these. Lame. Hope i still have the packaging.

Overall Review: These look amazing in the red and black NZXT case, with Corsair h110 cooler.

Fast Boot...not good for gaming

PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB
PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Relatively fast boot. That's it.....

Cons: Not good for gaming. Not sure if I got a bad drive or what, but I have seen other reviews with this issue. I bought this for my PS3, since I had an old 40Gb HDD in there and was excited to get this cheap SSD in it. The ISSUE is that this thing stutters...loads fast. But during the gameplay it's like it goes to sleep, and whenever the system needs it to load (like GTA buildings terrain etc.) It makes playing games unbearable, to the point where I took the drive out and put back my old HDD.

Overall Review: I bought this because at the time it was less than sixty five bucks. I also own a Samsung Evo 840 256GB drive, and LOVE it. I'll never buy another SSD that isn't a PNY. Going to get this one replaced, to see if it's a problem with just this one. Seek issue.

Better than expected

Overall Review: Bought it as one of the Egg deals of the day. Highly recommend this product if you are looking for a bluetooth device for your car. Using with my Samsung S3.

Awesome

Logitech 970-000001 Revue Companion Box with Google TV and Keyboard Controller
Logitech 970-000001 Revue Companion Box with Google TV and Keyboard Controller

Pros: Streams anything and EVERYTHING in the Chrome Browser. Even has incognito mode. :p I cancelled my cable subscription. Now watch all sports in the browser, Veetle, HBOGO etc. Does everything I'd want it to do. Decent amound of apps available, third party too.

Cons: Logitech and Google no longer work on this device. Not a con for the device, but for the guys who "refurbish" the product. My keyboard was covered in food / scum. Had to clean it out from between the keys with a paper clip, and clorox cleaning clothes.

Overall Review: System doesn't have a power off button. It just runs in the background. Keyboard is great (once cleaned). Refurbished is another word for put in box I guess.....not fixed to like new...
