Most Favorable Review

Great Price, Great Performance.

FSP Group ATX350-PA 350W ATX 12V (v 2.2)    Power Supply
FSP Group ATX350-PA 350W ATX 12V (v 2.2) Power Supply

Pros: Dual 12v rails Silent ATX 2.0 spec 20+4 pin for future upgrade SATA power plug

Cons: None

Overall Review: Could do with some cable sleeving, but hey its only $xx and rock stable! Best PSU deal for budget systems.

Most Critical Review

Will not work with a lot of laptops!

WD Passport 120GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDXMS1200TN
WD Passport 120GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDXMS1200TN

Pros: Fast, silent, compact package.

Cons: Will not work on a lot of laptops! This drive draws just over 1000ma on spinup (from WD's site), and a lot of laptops are limited to 500ma. It simply won't work. Be aware!

Overall Review: Deceitful of WD not to put a warning about this on the packaging, considering how widespread the 500ma limit is on laptops. They sell a seperate dual-head usb cable, but I wont support this misleading product.

Works perfectly

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GRSL
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GRSL

Pros: 1600MHz CAS 9 1.35v Lifetime warranty

Cons: Large stickers may insulate heat? I'd peel them off if I weren't concerned about it voiding the warranty.

Overall Review: Excellent ram for my AMD A8-4500m laptop, which supports 1600MHz max ram. Runs at the advertised timings and 1.35v, that claimed to be for Intel 4th gen core processors. I guess newer AMD Trinity APU's support this also.

Good for the first year

Rosewill RV450 450 W ATX 12V v1.3 Power Supply
Rosewill RV450 450 W ATX 12V v1.3 Power Supply

Pros: quite dual 80 mm fans

Cons: Old tech

Overall Review: Is starting to die 1 year and 2 months after purchase, so I cant RMA it. Voltages are fluctuating wildly and getting a lot of bluescreens. Will never buy Rosewill again.

Comments: Ive tried 5 cd-r brands, 2 brands of cd-rw's, and this drive wont burn anything without a lot of erros. It did this out of its 30 day warranty period so im out of options, ill have to buy a new one.

CD-R is 48x

TOSHIBA Combo Drive 16X DVD-ROM 52X CD-R 32X CD-RW 52X CD-ROM Beige IDE Model SD-R1612 BG

Comments: It burns/reads any disc with any type of DRM that I can throw at it, but it only burns cd-r at 48x not the advertised 52x. Ever burning app ive tried shows it only does 48x, Nero, WMP, and Itunes.
