Most Favorable Review

Great upgrade from my 1050ti.

ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060 EVO OC Edition Graphics Card (PCIe 3.0, 12GB GDDR6, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, Axial-tech Fan, 0dB Technology, Auto-Extreme) DUAL-RTX2060-O12G-EVO

Pros: Much more powerful than the 1050ti I was using Price is higher than it should be, but a lot less so than higher end cards. 12gb of ram really helps with newer titles that most older cards just don't have the ram to play well.

Cons: Card is still overpriced, as just about every card is right now.

Overall Review: Overall, this seems like a pretty good card. If you're still stuck on an older card like I was on my 1050ti it's a good upgrade and will provide you decidedly better performance in games. The extra ram lets it play titles that the original 2060 would have struggled with having only half the amount of ram. Card runs quiet and cool, and even while playing fairly demanding games behaves pretty well. This is one of the very, very few cards that it's worth upgrading to right now if you're on an older card.

Great power supply overall

Pros: Works with USB A and USB C so it can plug into your computer, laptop, and most Android phones. Fast USB 3.0 speedscan fit Micro SD or full sized SD cardssmall size

Cons: None that I have found.

Overall Review: If you want a small dongle that works with multiple kinds of devices and the two most used formats for storage cards today, this is a great choice.

Great drives, I'd recommend them to anyone.

Pros: Great speed, big upgrade if you're coming from platter drives like I did.

Cons: None that I've run into yet.

Overall Review: Bought two of these for my main PC, They were great for boosting the speed of the machine and so far have been working just as expected.

Great headphones!

Pros: I'e owned these headphones since about the middle of 2011 and they've held up very well. I use them daily when I work out, and when I'm out on my bicycle. The sound is fantastic, one of the best bluetooth headsets I've had. Could you do better, sure. But for the $40 I spent on these when I got them, you'd be pretty hard pressed to. I've had people hand me $100 pairs of headphones that aren't as good, or are so clunky to wear you don't want to. Battery life is also pretty good. I've had no troubles using them most of the day listening to music at moderate volume levels. I use them on and off while I'm doing different things though, your milage may very if you just have them on constantly. I've also exposed these things to just about every weather extreme out there. from snow in NY to rain in FL, and lots of sweat. They handled it all and are still my Go To headset today.

Cons: The only thing I've had go wrong with these things since I got them is the right earphone has gotten a little loose. But not so as to cause me fear of it falling off.

Overall Review: I'd definitely suggest these to others, and have. I was pretty turned off to Motorola for a long time via another product of theirs I owned, but this brought me back. My experience with these headphones is that they've been a good quality product and I'd definitely consider buying another pair if / when these eventually wear out.

Great board!

BIOSTAR NF325-A7 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Easy install, lots of PCI slots for great expandability, 8X AGP is nice. Bios gives good control over things on the board, and everything I've thrown at it it seems to handle well.

Cons: Nothing major. Only thing I found, is that windows XP doesn't recognize some of the on board stuff out of the box, but it's easy to rectify that.

Overall Review: I paid $89 for the combo of this motherboard, and the AMD 3000+ 64bit proc. It was a great deal, and I've been really happy with the performance it's giving me. Excellent entry level board as well if you're new to AMD, and don't want to spend a lot of money to try one out.
