Pros: 750gb and wasnt too expensive
Cons: hard drive prices are too high
Overall Review: This is my 3rd portable Seagate drive have a 500gb, a 1TB, and now a 750gb all work wonderful and have never had any problems with any of them which is why I keep coming back to seagate portables. 500gb is connected to a Raspi for download/media device. 1TB is my personal portable hdd and the 750gb is now for movie and media transfer from my place to the girlfriends place.
Pros: 25 feet for not a bad price
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: Got this for my girlfriends apartment to hook laptops to the TV to watch movies on. She has no tech experience but was able to set everything up herself and she hasn't complained yet so Im happy with it.
Pros: 32GB cheap
Cons: None yet
Overall Review: Bought this for my moms new camera for christmas, she loves the size and can take tons of pictures and videos without having to worry about space issues.
Pros: Light weight
Overall Review: This is my second Segate portable hard drive, First was a 1tb loved it so much I bought this one to hook to a raspi box as a media box/NAS. Works great!
Tons of connection and configuration possibilities
Designed for water cooling
Tons of wire tuck room behind the mobo
Cons: Heavy once completely loaded with all your parts and water cooling loop.
Cant put the 3rd hard drive rack on the bottom if you mount a radiator of any size on the lower door rack
Overall Review: The 3rd hard drive rack can be mounted behind the radiator mounts if you only use a 300 radiator but you cant open the drives and pull them out, they hit the radiator mounts. If you are fine with less than 6 drives you wont have a problem but if you want 6+ and a radiator on the bottom you will have swap issues.
I put my pump down in that area instead
Other than that i have had no issues and love it!
Pros: Great compact keyboard
Red switches are awesome
Overall Review: Had this keyboard since the spring and I love it.
First Mechanical keyboard from a "gaming" keyboard.
Repainted with white plastic paint and put some different color keys on it.
Feels great typing is smooth and easy to use, planning to get another to use for work/laptop
Doesn't over heat
No clicking or grinding so far
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Bought one of these drives to replace an old 1TB sata2 5400 drive. Everything transfered over as fast as the old drive would go. Its mounted under an SSD, 2x WD 1TB, and a 2TB drive and it stays cool and runs fast with a 230mm fan blowing across all 5 drives. Actually feels cool to the touch.
Pros: Does its job
Cons: One failed within 4 months
Overall Review: Bought 2 of these thinking i would need both for my dual cards to run 6 monitors. Shortly after downgraded to 5 monitors so i didn't need one of the adapters. Luckily i had the extra because after about 4 months the one i was using failed and made my eyefinity go crazy. Swapped out for the other one and it has worked fine for about 4 months now.
Cons: Auto focuses about every min or two
Overall Review: Bought this for my desktop computer while on sale. Had to get a usb extension cable for it since the cable is only a foot long. Its a great camera, i use it for web chats and recording video. The speaker is built in and my friends say they can hear me loud and clear from anywhere. the video i record also has great sound quality.
Pros: Short doesn't tangle with the rest of my cables
Overall Review: Bought this thinking 3 feet was longer, turns out it wasn't long enough but still worked when i extended the power strip closer. Will be using the multiple of these I bought for my server cabinet i am purchasing soon being small they wont clutter my cabinet.
Pros: Small in size about the size of my palm
LED's are bright
Overall Review: Great little unmanaged switch to connect all my home desktops together and to the rest of my network.
bought this switch to replace another larger TRENDnet (8port) that some how surged and fried when i plugged it in the wall.
Pros: Power and volume right on the speaker
Overall Review: I bought these speakers for my work computer. they are great cause they sit right on the desk under my monitors.
Create great sound but not over powering
Great highs and lows for the price
Pros: Came free with a laptop
Cons: Gets a little warmer than i would like
only internal storage, no Hard drive
Overall Review: My sister ordered a laptop and this came free with it so i chipped in on her laptop and she gave me the xbox. I bought a cheep 250GB drive from a auction site that may have rhymed with shmebay and popped it in this thing. it does get a little warm though however i was thinking about modding the cooler and case to help with that. over all its an xbox its supposed to just perform.
Pros: Steady power
Plenty of connectors
Doesn't get hot
Cons: Wires galore
Overall Review: Great PSU, it powers my AMD fx-8120, a water cooling loop, 2 6870's, 3 hdd's and an ssd with no problem what so ever. Never had it drop power randomly or act funny. Wish it was modular cause there are tons of wires that i had to tie down behind the mobo wall but still a great PSU
Pros: Worked well for the time that it worked.
hooked 2 routers to it with no problems
Cons: Failed within 6 months.
Overall Review: Had it hooked up at the house i was living in durring school with 2 routers hooked to it with no problems. brought it home and it just wouldn't work at all, no lights, no power nothing. I think the board fried.
Reliable so far
Overall Review: Bought 2 of these. one to replace a 3gb/s drive and the other to add to my system. Both worked great right out of the box! they dont get hot, and both spin up right away. havent had a single problem with them yet.
The replacement drive is completely full of movies and games and i havent seen any performance drop.
fits 240 rad no problem
7 fans with a modded side panel (no side panel fans)
great wire management
Rubber stoppers for hdds and psu are fantastic
Cons: Mobo sits a little high had to use slim fans for liquid cooling
wish the slots in the back for extra cards were solid instead of mesh
side panel is mesh (modded mine for windows)
fan control knobs could be smaller or set in the face of the case
Overall Review: I man be picky with the cons but they arent things that are a huge deal. I used a asus m5a99x mobo and a 240 radiator mounted to the top of the case. put 2 slim fans in between the plastic top and the metal on the case to hold the rad to the top and get a push pull design. slim fans are needed if doing it this way so the fins on the top can open and to put on the bottom side of the rad to fit above the mobo.
With that being said i removed the top and side panel fans also removed the side panel mesh in the 4 holes grinded down the lip and flanges and epoxied a single piece of plexi to the inside so all 4 holes are covered and you can see in the case. holds everything perfectly. Love this case! Led's on the face are white when the hdds are in use but are like a bluish tint of the hdds are just idling.
Pros: Great laptop, lots of power, fast boot, plenty of hdd space, great battery life!
Cons: Symantec antivirus didn't play well with win7 making me think i had a memory problem turned out it was just a file in the antivirus. scared me but no where near a decrease of an egg since it was software.
Overall Review: Bought this laptop for my sister for college. Did the "free xbox with purchase" deal. I got the xbox she got the laptop. Besides the antivirus problem, she hasnt had a single problem with it. I've noticed i barely every see her charging it so the battery life is great! Fast windows boot, fast response, no problems so far! Great laptop!
Pros: bright LED, decent air movement, not too loud
Overall Review: bought this fan to replace the blue LED fan on the window of my nzxt Tempest Evo case. (took all the blue LEDs out and made them green) fan is very bright and lights up the inside of my case perfectly! The fan is also pretty quiet at least quieter than the stock LED fan.
Pros: Great sound, easy set up, Great highs and lows, volume control cable is great instead of being on one of the speakers!
Cons: None yet.
Overall Review: Set up as a 3 on the desk 2 above my monitors with the sub under the desk. They have great sound with music and games. the volume control sits just infront of my mouse so i can access it quickly. I play a lot of BF3 and the explosions and gunfire sound fantastic when i turn the volume up louder. I normally roll my thumb over the volume control and it doesn't take more than a knuckle length (about an inch of roll) to get the sound at the perfect level when im not alone. Very good speakers so far!
Pros: Quiet, Good speed, easy install,
Overall Review: Great fan! Installed 2 of these fans on the top of my nzxt tempest evo to replace a bad stock fan. installed very quickly and didnt have any problem with them. They create great flow in my case and are pretty quiet. Would definitely buy more!
Comfortable in your hand
Overall Review: I have had this mouse for over a year. I was skeptical about buying something that mad catz produces, however i wanted a mouse that i could customize, worked, and over all looked cool. You can customize your DPI settings to 4 different levels on 3 different modes. I set mine up for:
1) Windows 7
2) Gaming Custom button mapping
3) linux distros (needed to be slowed down)
The only thing i have noticed is when its set for high DPI it gets jumpy-ish (win7) when not gaming and doesnt keep an as smooth scroll. not worth taking an egg away since you just have to switch modes or turn down your DPI with the side button.
