All That and a Whole Lot More

Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SNVP325-S2B/128GB
Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SNVP325-S2B/128GB

Pros: Fifteen seconds from "Starting Windows" to ready Desktop. Applications open instantly (Photoshop CS4 x64 in under three seconds). That's it, I'm sold, I'll never go back to mechanical hard drives.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: My 64GB V-series is now my Photoshop scratch disk. Room for two hard drives on my Studio 1735. My old 7200RPM Seagate Momentus is now housed in teh Kingston enclosure permanently and used with Win7 Backup and Restore . . . not that I'll ever need it!

Most Critical Review

Not for my Dell Inspiron 1564

Built NY Micro Dot 15.4" Hoodie Notebook Case Model E-LH15-MDT

Pros: Nice looking, appears to be a quality product.

Cons: Does not fit a Dell Inspiron 1564, not at all. Dimensions given are misleading, as the sleeve houses a plastic insert that does not mold to shape in any way. That would be fine except the laptop juts up on one side . . . the sleeve could potentially damage the laptop rather than protect it.

Couldn't Be Happier

Planar 997-5253-00 Black Dual Monitor Stand for LCD Displays

Pros: High quality construction, versatile setup options. Sleek look to it, but don't let the nice lines fool you: your monitors are in good hands.

Cons: None that I see

Overall Review: I use my 23" Dell touch screens with this and they are rock-solid stable. No wiggles or reverberations. Thank you, Planar.

Super Duper for Surface Pro 3

Pros: Nice, works great with Surface Pro 3. Docs, Music, Photos now stored off the main drive using settings feature.

Cons: Zilch. Zero. Nada.

Overall Review: I love my Surface.

Amazing Value

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with Red LED Fans ATX Power Supply (Not Included)
Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with Red LED Fans ATX Power Supply (Not Included)

Pros: Amazing creature features built into this budget case. It's been awhile since I've done a build, so maybe things have changed across the board. I sure hope they're all built like this: wonderful fans, attention to fittings, smooth edges, solid construction, and it's flat out cool looking.

Cons: Absolutely none. If you're a budget-minded enthusiast, they nailed it here.

Nice Machine

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Intel Core i5 4GB 128GB SSD HDD 13.3" HD+ Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook/Tablet (59359567)
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Intel Core i5 4GB 128GB SSD HDD 13.3" HD+ Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook/Tablet (59359567)

Pros: SSD, Gorilla Glass, and other rock solid features make it a real ultra book. Throw in the touchscreen and it'll make a Mac owner cry.

Cons: Not sure what's up with the exorbitant price here at newegg. I got mine at Best Buy for $750.
