Most Favorable Review

So far so good, try it!

Evoluent VM3R2-RSB Silver/Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2600 dpi VerticalMouse 3 Rev 2
Evoluent VM3R2-RSB Silver/Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2600 dpi VerticalMouse 3 Rev 2

Pros: Comfortable, seems to relieve wrist and arm pain as claimed. Lots of buttons, great tracking feel, accurate. Software seems stable and is highly customizable.

Cons: The lowest button on mouse is useless. I had to disable it because I was constantly clicking on accident. No horizontal tilt scrolling.

Overall Review: If ordinary mice are causing you pain or if you have carpal tunnel, try it. It's worth the $$. I am very happy with it so far.

Not that good

NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS608NA)
NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS608NA)

Pros: Cheap, works... for awhile.

Cons: Although power protected using a UPS with AVR, well ventilated and utilized way under capacity, this switch toasted itself less than 2 years after purchase. Netgear's warranty doesn't cover it. Thing just stopped working one day, done, no power up, reset or LED's...

Overall Review: nothing except more ewaste from the east. thanks netgear :-(

works... but.

MSI Radeon R5 230 2GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card R5 230 2GD3H LP
MSI Radeon R5 230 2GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card R5 230 2GD3H LP

Pros: Cheap, silent, low profile.

Cons: DDR3. Had an issue when initially configuring using an ASUS monitor that had only HDMI in. This card somehow botches the resolution recognition and was only utilizing a small square on the screen (native resolution is 1920x1080). Unfathomably I had to install the whole Catalyst control center suite and then set the scaling to overscan. Works fine now but totally unacceptable OOB experience.

No complaints. Just works.

HyperX 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C8D3K4/8GX
HyperX 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C8D3K4/8GX

Pros: Blue. Works great.

Cons: Made in China. Some Kingston HyperX memory i had purchased for my laptop was actually made in the US. Thus i thought that was awesome and went again after the Kingston HyperX. I think when i bought it the picture said "Made in USA" but alas - Made in China. Still great memoryjust probably wouldn't have shelled out extra the hyperx brand.

Sweet. Worth it.

Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSA2M080G2GC
Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSA2M080G2GC

Pros: Fast. NO, REALLY fast. Windows 7 x64 boots in 25 secs (button to ready to use).

Cons: Only 74GB usable space formatted. Cost.

Overall Review: If you are thinking about an SSD... Get one. Your boot times and shutdown times are faster. Downloads are faster. Application launches are faster. Granted, i can't vouch for long-term reliability and performance, but I think with TRIM support and Intel's SSD optimizer scheduled there won't be significant decrease in performance for average users.
