Pros: Lian Li cases are top shelf. Nice open design with plenty of hardware and all the Lian Li extras (shock proof HD cages, quick release DVD,etc bays)
Overall Review: I like a flat black case with as few LEDs and bling as one can get, however the blue front case fan provides a nice look with out being over the top.
Pros: They seem to keep my 9800 GTX MOSFETs cool.
Cons: As others have said the thermal tape is almost useless. Unless you have gravity helping you out the smaller heat sinks WILL fall off.
Pros: Simple install on XFX 9800gtx. DRASTIC reduction in temps under load (65 C to 40 C). Actually smaller than the original heat sink
Cons: No cooling for the MOSFETs.
Overall Review: The lack of cooling for the MOSFETs is not all that big of a deal, just buy the stick on heat sinks. Be careful which brand you buy, the Scythe heat sinks don't seem to stick very well. (see reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16835185083)
Pros: Better button positions then my old Razer. The on the fly DPI speed change is surprisingly handy.
Overall Review: The ability to "properly weight" my mouse is, well, meh... maybe other people will find this option more useful.
Pros: Easy install, good geometry, cool and quite. Comes with plenty of hardware (thumb screw, zip ties, grommets). Surprisingly spacious for a Micro tower.
Overall Review: Used as a HTPC. Smooth black aluminum looks nice with out being "flashy." No blinding LEDs to annoy you when watching movies.
Pros: Passable board, functional and reliable, but not much else.
Cons: Two things. First, this board refuses to see my memory @ 1066. I changed the clocks to FORCE it to run at 1066 which worked until I tried a Vista 64 install with 8 gigs. After switching back to 32 bit all the required timing settings in the BIOS are marked “Reserved.” (The same sticks of memory run @ 1066 natively on my MSI board.) Second, the BIOS clear jumper gets hidden under larger video cards (9800 series).
Overall Review: The big row of jumpers for SLI mode… come on now, seriously, why would you do that?
Pros: Fast, cool, and fairly inexpensive (with rebate)
Overall Review: as a side note, I have to manually set the speeds for this memory to get my Biostar T-power to run it at 1066. not a big deal and it's the fault of the Biostar, not OCZ (See the OCZ for correct timings if you have this issue...)
Pros: It's Fallout, you needn't say anything else.
Overall Review: It could use MORE swearing, and tangential statements during battle.
Pros: The fans ARE rather low flow, however with 6 of them in my case they move plenty of air without being annoying or needing a fan controller.
Cons: Not daisy-chainable by default.
Overall Review: Free shipping! WOO!
Pros: Big, Bright, Crisp. Zero dead pixels.
Pros: Physically, the card is OK. Passes tests with flying colors.
Cons: nvlddmkm.sys An unresolved error in the Nvidia drivers causes halts, crashes and failure to load on many games. After a week solid of trying every remedy I could find, I upgraded to the 9800GTX. Runs like a champ.
Overall Review: It seems to be a nebulous issue with what hardware you combine the card with… If you have a BIOSTAR TPower N750, I would avoid this card.
Pros: Inxepensive, simple, has worked perfectly since I first plugged it in.
Overall Review: Not a big deal, but the USB cable seems a little on the short side (shorter then on other My Books.)
Pros: Super fast, quiet, very stylish, plug it in and go.
Cons: Looks lonely if you only buy one, so buy two!
Overall Review: It looks so good it gave my other external hard drive an inferiority complex.
Pros: Low low price. Very small. Soothing blue LED. No built in programs or extra stuff, just storage.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Has no cap, but comes with a little storage box. The exposed connections might become a problem if you were going to use it as a key-chain but for $20, who cares.
Pros: No coasters
Overall Review: I like to rub up against them after burning.
Pros: Nice sound, comfortable to wear, and durable too. On more then one occasion I have clumsily yanked them off my head or snagged them on something and they still work just fine.
Cons: Squat little cord.
Overall Review: I use them at my work computer and I had to buy an extra extension, but for ipod use the extension that comes with them is just fine.
Pros: Does the job. Boosted reception quite nicely. Excellent price with the company rebate.
Cons: SMA or TNC Connectors. Make sure you check the connectors on all your devices. My Linksys router uses TNC so I had to find a converter. My bad, I should have checked first.
Comments: Fantastic little camera. Very crisp, good color depth, nice long cable; I also enjoyed the software suite from Logitech, lots of fun little appz. All in all, it’s probably a better web cam then I really needed.
