Most Favorable Review
D-Link DUB-H7 USB 2.0 7-Port Hub
D-Link DUB-H7 USB 2.0 7-Port Hub

Pros: Works great with most usb accs.

Cons: Won't work with flash usb drives

Overall Review: I have this hooked up to my Mac Mini because they come with a pitiful 2 usb ports onboard. I have been able to use most of my usb items: mouse, keyboard, external hard drive, camera, video capture. All without problem. However it will not work with any of my flash usb drives. I have four different brands plus my ipod shuffle. Not one will work through the hub. I thought if hubs were powered like this one they would function, but apparently I was incorrect in this thought. Other than that it works great.

Most Critical Review
KINGWIN Ultra Cool Multi-Function Notebook Cooling Pad UC3
KINGWIN Ultra Cool Multi-Function Notebook Cooling Pad UC3

Comments: For the price I expected more. I have multiple notebooks with different applications for each. This is the fourth notebook cooler I have purchased, and the second most expensive. The plastic is brittle, nad just carrying it in my laptop backpack it cracked. The card reader works fine with SD, but won't read any MS media. As others have said, the fans pull not push, so cooling is not as great as it could be. Tried using a usb power cord from another brand cooler, and it overloaded the usb socket. So the fact it has to be plugged into a wall makes it somewhat less useful. Out of all that I've used, the Antec NoteBook Cooler is by far the best. At least it's worth the money. I would avoid this one.

Great Camera

FUJIFILM FinePix Z10fd Orange 7.24 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: Compact, light weight, well built. Solid opening mechanism. Can take pics fast. Nice auto focus system. Great color. Super killer deal with the combo here.

Cons: None at all sofar.

Overall Review: I've owned many digital cameras. Including Sony DSCT1 and DSCT7. I like this camera better than both of those combined. I bought a Fuji S5200 a couple years back, and love the way it takes pictures. This one is even better, and so much smaller.

Great Transmitter

Kensington Pico FM Transmitter for iPod Model 33365
Kensington Pico FM Transmitter for iPod Model 33365

Pros: Very small and you can choose any frequency to broadcast on. Very handy where I live. Doesn't seem to affect overall battery life at all.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Because it mounts directly into the dock port without wrapping around the ipod in anyway, you want to be very careful it doesn't fall. I recommend either a cradle or rubber skin to keep it from going anywhere while driving.

ALTEC LANSING inMotion Portable Speaker For iPods Model IM7
ALTEC LANSING inMotion Portable Speaker For iPods Model IM7

Pros: Worked great and sounded great for the first 4 months.

Cons: Plugged my 20gb 4th gen Ipod into it one day after having it about 4 months. The charging icon didn't come on. Tried to turn the Ipod on and nothing happened. Took the Ipod out and still wouldn't turn on. Took the Ipod to a service center and the main power input was shorted. Of course that isn't covered by Apple's warranty, and Altec Lansing states they do not give coverage to products plugged into their products.

Overall Review: I have owned 4 different Altec Lansing speaker systems for Ipod over the last three years. I have always been very happy with their sound quality and how well they function. After this experience however, I will never buy another product from Altec Lansing. Beware!

D-Link DSS-5+ Desktop Switch
D-Link DSS-5+ Desktop Switch

Pros: Works flawlessly. No problems, and such a great price.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I use this for Halo parties. Have never had a problem with it. I love all of my D Link equipment, and Newegg is the fastest in the business.
