Most Favorable Review

Worth more than I paid

Cooler Master Centurion 534 RC-534-KKN2-GP Black Aluminum & Mesh bezel / SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Centurion 534 RC-534-KKN2-GP Black Aluminum & Mesh bezel / SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Case is solid and looks great. Subtle lighting a nice touch. I liked the tooless design and had no problems with it. Plenty of room.

Cons: The manual is WORTHLESS.

Overall Review: This case looks and feels more expensive than it is. While the manual is worthless, the wires and cables are reasonably labeled so you can figure out what goes where. The two fans are great and keep my components cool. Unlike others, I didn't find the LED's to bright at all. If you need a case you really can't go wrong with this one, as long as you feel comfortable with no instructions.

Don't Bother With This Card....

ASUS Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card AH3650 SILENT/HTDI/512M
ASUS Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card AH3650 SILENT/HTDI/512M

Pros: Great spec for an AGP card.

Cons: Included drivers don't work. ATI Hotfix returned my computer to life, but when I try to play games (any games) I get the blue screen of death. Seems to have issues with my SOYO KT600 mother board. Not worth the $$$ to RMA the card. Wasted my money :(

Overall Review: I've spent many hours trying to get this thing working. It's unbelievable that a company can ship a brand new video card with drivers that do not work. ASUS support is non-existent. Does anybody test these things before they ship!?!?!?

Quite literally the most satisfying online purchase I made

Puzzled 5605 Plush Magnet Killer Whale -Pack of 6
Puzzled 5605 Plush Magnet Killer Whale -Pack of 6

Pros: When I opened the package I didn't know what to expect, didn't pay a lot for these things. When I pulled one out of the bag I thought, 'these are supposed to have magnets?', I couldn't tell. but they do, and stick well! They are also high quality, plush, and feel like they are worth more than I paid. Easily worth twice the price. Thanks for such a satisfying product!

Cons: - None

Well worth the money

PowerColor Radeon HD 3650 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card AX3650 1GBD2-V2
PowerColor Radeon HD 3650 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card AX3650 1GBD2-V2

Pros: Cheap, easy to install and competent. I'm playing Bioshock w/high settings at 1024x768 (DirectX 9c). Slows down a bit at higher resolution, but still quite playable.

Cons: There are better cards out there, but not for what I paid for this :)

Overall Review: This is not a gaming video card. It certainly will play games, but if that's what you do, look for a more powerful video card.

Another Excellent Sennheiser Product

Sennheiser CX300B 3.5mm Connector Canal Headphone
Sennheiser CX300B 3.5mm Connector Canal Headphone

Pros: These headphones break the bang for a buck bank. They are excellent headphones, easily worth twice the price. They didn't give me the 'wow' that my pair of PX100's did when I first heard them, but these are a respectable pair of headphones. Highly recommend these headphones!!!

Cons: If you plan on eating lunch while listening to these headphones forget it, all you'll hear is yourself chewing. The chords do make sound when moving. By no means a deal breaker.

Overall Review: As many have said, make sure you use the correct fitting ear pieces. I found the large set worked best for me. There was a big difference in bass attenuation when I went from medium to large ear pieces.

Adds New Life....

AllComponents 256MB 144-Pin SO-DIMM PC 133 Laptop Memory Model ACSO133X64/256
AllComponents 256MB 144-Pin SO-DIMM PC 133 Laptop Memory Model ACSO133X64/256

Pros: Within 10 minutes I removes my two 128MB sticks with these two 256MB Sticks. My Dell Inspiron 8100 booted up with one beep, notifying me of a memory change. The second and third boot executed without any problems. Well worth the 75 dollars...

Cons: None (yet)....

Overall Review: I wish my 8100 would accept 1GB, Windows XP wasn't such a resource hog (nothing to do with the memory), and I could replace my 4500 rpm hard drive with a 7200 rpm hard drive. Buy this now before PC133 memory is unavailable!
