Not A Hard Drive Equivalent, But Still Very Fast!

OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G
OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G

Pros: Very nice read and write speeds, cool casing design and the cap holder on the keychain is what made me choose this device over others.

Cons: Not that this is a problem with this drive in particular, but anyone buying a flash drive with a capacity like this should know two things: 1. It's not 16GB, but 14.9. 2. When you format it, Windows will only allow you to format it with the FAT32 file system...which will not allow for the transfer of files larger than 2GB. In order to change it and format it to NTFS, go into the command prompt and type in convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

Overall Review: Not that those are bad things, but people should know this when they go to buy a flash drive this big. Converting it to NTFS would allow you to transfer any size of file [even make it into a portable OS]. It would have been nice if OCZ told people who bought this product how to do this...but no worries it gets 5 eggs anyway. =]

It Was Pretty Good...Except The Color...

HIPER HFF-1W12W-UV Blacklight Reactive 120mm White Case Fan
HIPER HFF-1W12W-UV Blacklight Reactive 120mm White Case Fan

Pros: It is very silent, has very good construction and is a solid fan with very little vibration when it spins. Attatch it to a fan controller and it is basically silent.

Cons: Don't rely on the picture; the thing glows white under UV light. I would say false advertising, but the title says white.

Overall Review: I wish newegg had UV reactive blue fans that were this silent.

King Of The Cases

Thermaltake Black/Silver Aluminum Side Panel / SECC Body MozartTx VE1000BWS Cube Tower
Thermaltake Black/Silver Aluminum Side Panel / SECC Body MozartTx VE1000BWS Cube Tower

Pros: This is the tallest ATX retail PC case on earth. Four times the size of a Dell while taking up less space on the floor compared to a medium ATX tower and offers 4 different cooling zones. It can even support two motherboards and is BTX capable! Comes with all the screws and fans you may ever need. It doesn't take long at all to install in and comes with handy instructions. Cast out of a very sharp looking aluminum, it accents my computer in just the right way and is the ultimate case for the extreme gamer...it also doesn't weight that much; suprisingly.

Cons: Of small concern: -The fans that come with it are 4-pin molar connectors [both kinds, which is good]. -The doors only open 90 degrees, but it doesn't take much to hold them open. Of greater concern: -The PSU is on the other side of the case and all wires need to be threaded through to the other side as such. While neater, it makes it much more difficult and increases the chances of riping a wire. Thats about it. Nothing someone who know's computers can't handle.

Overall Review: It doesn't say I bought this product because it was a gift for X-Mas. 680i, q6600 with Tuniq Tower [fits with extra room], 8800ultra, soon to have 1100W psu.
