Most Favorable Review

Nice and fast with lots of room!

Transcend 1GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model TS1GSD80
Transcend 1GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model TS1GSD80

Pros: Since I'm using it for a fast camera I don't care about the 80X rating. I want fast write speed. This card works fine and fast in a Canon a610 that can do 2.4 shots a second. On Sandra it gives a 9MB/sec write speed on the 2MB file test. On my built in laptop card reader only 5MB/s On the cheapo KingMax SD reader I bought here it's fast. 700+ 5MP shots, 1025 3.2MP shots, I'm happy..:)

Cons: None at all. I wish I'd have gotten a 2GB card, but anything over 1GB is hard to find a compatible card reader.

Overall Review: 700 fast shots on my 5.2MP camera, very compatible. The A-Data and Transcend 150x cards write at 15-20MB/s which is twice as fast as this, but there's a huge compatibility issue. I'll wait 6 months to get a faster 2GB. This has plenty of room to last till then. And by then the 2GB cards will be cheap...:)

Pros: It's fast and cheap. Great for wasting time and money.

Cons: Constant WiFi lags. Not usable. I threw it out.

Overall Review: It was great on the wired connections. On wireless it had constant lags/disconnects. I replaced with a D-Link AC1200 and it is stable and has even better range

Works great for the $129.99 I bought it at!

ASRock Phantom Gaming D Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card RX570 4G

Pros: Faster than a 3GB 1060, but a lot cheaper. Games great for the price.

Cons: Nothing.

Overall Review: I built a new PC (He built it with my help) for my 13 year old gamer. This 4GB GPU, Ryzen5 2400G, 16GB of Gskill Flare X RAM, and a ASRock B450M-HDV MB. He thought his old PC was decent. Now with this one, his friends are all jealous. Good job Asrock and AMD! He games well with no lags at all. At least once I got him rocking a 185Mbs AC wifi connection :)

This is a very nice bang for the buck SSD

Pros: It's fast enough,. 520 or so reads, 390 or so writes. It's reliable over 6 weeks now.

Cons: It's not a super expensive NVME drive, that looks better on benchmarks, but the same IRL

Ok for what it is

Pros: It works good and isn't loud. Even the stock CPU paste on the bottom of it was virgin.

Cons: It is a small low profile fan, this means it needs to spin fast. This means it isn't silent.

Overall Review: For my build I really wanted something very quiet. This isn't like loud, but it is the loudest part of my build. I wish I'd have spent like $30 for something really quiet like a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Nice and very quiet

Pros: WIth the 120mm fan it's pretty silent. It wasn't expensive and sure beats a cheap one that makes grinding noises out of the box.

Cons: It doesn't come with a power cable. I've got about 100 power cables so I don't care. OEM boxed or just kinda loose with no box. In other words NO PACKAGING.

Overall Review: It's great if you realize it's just OEM packed. If you're a noob and don't know what OEM parts are you might be sad.
