Most Favorable Review
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB
Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB

Pros: writes quickly. the price! feels very very sturdy.

Cons: the end cap slips on and off easily and may be lost, but get a little clear tape to keep it down when its rolling around in your bag, pocket, etc, and your good to go. not serious enough to warrent the loss of an egg however.

Overall Review: people say this is big, not really, I've seen bigger thumbdrives with less capacity.

Patriot 8GB (2GB x 4) Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model PSF2G40SD4PK
Patriot 8GB (2GB x 4) Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model PSF2G40SD4PK

Pros: bought two packs, one for my sister, and one for me to split with my parents. fast, its an SD card, not much you can say. Patriot name. good price.

Cons: i wish they each brought their own case, or at least a little plastic sleeve or something. this will warrant the loss of an egg unfortunately.

Overall Review: that makes three 2 gb cards for my eee PC, 1 for my dads 7 MP camera and one for my moms 5 MP camera (can hold 2000 pics on that one, didnt check with my dads 7mp but id guesstimate 1,500ish)

fast lil bugger

Patriot Signature 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model PSF2G40SD
Patriot Signature 2GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model PSF2G40SD

Pros: Writes very quickly. good price. Patriot name.

Cons: none, its an SD card, not many cons you can give these unless they die out on you and dont work within a week or two. which this one certainly has not after using it to install Ubuntu on my eeepc901

Overall Review: Bought it to add storage space to my eeepc101

added another one

Patriot Extreme Performance 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model PEP21G6400LL
Patriot Extreme Performance 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model PEP21G6400LL

Pros: good 800 mhz DDR2 RAM, handles my most intense apps very well, i have a logitech G15 which monitors RAM and CPU usage, and it never goes past 80% while playing crysis smoothly.

Cons: none

Overall Review: i had two of these in my CPU for about a year, and ordered this to add a third gig of ram, surprisingly noticeable speed boost in games.

good cable

KINGWIN HDMIC-02 6 ft. Black HDMI Male to DVI Male Extension Cable
KINGWIN HDMIC-02 6 ft. Black HDMI Male to DVI Male Extension Cable

Pros: used this to plug my ps3 to my high def lcd monitor in my dorm room so i dont have to take a tv to play it... guess what, it works AMAZINGLY WELL. dont pay 100$ for the exact same thing, this cable worked amazingly out of the package.

Cons: none whatsoever. except that i dont have the new xbox350 that has the dvi port, otherwise i'd be plugging my 360 and not my ps3 in!

Overall Review: able to enjoy my ps3 in high def at last =] keep in mind it is a short cable, but for me the ps3 and monitor are right next to each other so its a little long FOR ME, =].

great, writing this review from it

ASUS Eee PC 901 20G - Pearl White NetBook Intel Atom 8.9" Wide SVGA 1GB Memory 20GB SSD Integrated Graphics
ASUS Eee PC 901 20G - Pearl White NetBook Intel Atom 8.9" Wide SVGA 1GB Memory 20GB SSD Integrated Graphics

Pros: bright screen, very fast! wireless works great. amazingly fast boot up and shut down times (less than 30 seconds). size, and weight, and just an overall cool device. all the drivers were working out of the box, and the webcam is surprisingly good quality for such a small thing. decent speakers, not the best, not the worst

Cons: keyboard size is not a con, it is just as expected, small. I'm not sure how to get the blue tooth to work, wish there was an LED for it. alot of unnecessary apps that just take up alot of space. please asus, make it so we can remove unncessary apps that we wont use! the mic isnt all that great.

Overall Review: after messing around with it for a bit i was able to unlock the full desktop or "advanced mode" which looks alot nice than the default interface, although the default is really straight forward, (easy to wok, play, learn) im very happy i waited for the 901. the batttery life seems to last a while but i tend to leave iit plugged. i use this over my beast gaming computer now when im just surfing or chatting on aim to save energy now, it gets the job done if your looking for something to take notes, surf the web, and chat online, then this is it.
