Pros: Installed and worked right away. Its quiet and does the job very well.

Cons: It didn't come with money in the box, and it was a full moon

Overall Review: Wish I had a newer board so i could of used the SATA version and got rid of those awful looking ribbon cables

Most Critical Review

Do you smell burning electronics ?

Rosewill RCW-302 - 8" SATA Power Splitter Cable
Rosewill RCW-302 - 8" SATA Power Splitter Cable

Pros: Newegg shipped it fast SEE CONS IMPORTANT

Cons: Well I bought this for a project I was about to start on. Plugged it into molex then plugged into hard drive. Power up system and before the fans even start spinning good I see the magic blue smoke and Get that sickening smell. Before I can hit the master power switch on back of PSU there is a flame on the power sata connector of a hard drive that worked PERFECT before installing this stupid thing. If you value your computer parts keep away from this. Luckily it only fried the hard drive which I have several extra. If it would of fried my motherboard wouldn't of been so easy on Rosewell. Yeah I could RMA the this cable but why risk another component on a $3 cable ? Not worth it.

Overall Review: Stay away unless you like the smell of burning electrics. And yes I know Rosewell will probably reply with 1 of there generic script replys and ask me to contact them to replace the cable but as I said in the cons... Is another computer component worth a $3 cable ?

Decent Power Supply for the price

ENERMAX NAXN ENP450AST 450 W ATX12V Power Supply
ENERMAX NAXN ENP450AST 450 W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Cables are plenty long enough for my mid tower case to run the cables behind the motherboard tray for cable management. Powers all 7 drives and AMD Athlon X2 4200+ with 2GB ram nicely in my Debian file server.

Cons: only 2 of the cables are sleeved. And poor sleeving at that. The sata and molex are not sleeved. Molex connector at the end of the sata connectors makes cable management a bit of a pain.

Overall Review: I Hate to say it but Newegg really dropped the ball and disappointed me on this 1. I ordered it Friday afternoon. And they didn't even ship it out of the warehouse till late Tuesday afternoon. I mean come on. I could understand shipping it out mid Monday or even Monday afternoon but waiting 2 Business days to ship out something ? I wasn't impressed and nearly went and bout a PSU at a local shop and returned this 1.

Not upto the challenge

Rosewill RCI-400MS – 400-Watt DC to AC Power Inverter with Power Protection and Alarm
Rosewill RCI-400MS – 400-Watt DC to AC Power Inverter with Power Protection and Alarm

Pros: It does produce 120volts

Cons: Not sure it actually puts out the 400watts its supposed. I bought this to charge my cordless drill and impact battery's while at work. But cant live upto the challenge. Very disappointed.

Overall Review: Not going to RMA it because it does actually work just doesn't seem like it lives upto its advertised spec. I might find a use for it someday. Still very disappointed. Btw the drill and impact in question is a craftsman 19.2 volt.

Doesnt do what i bought it for

Rosewill RCI-400MS – 400-Watt DC to AC Power Inverter with Power Protection and Alarm
Rosewill RCI-400MS – 400-Watt DC to AC Power Inverter with Power Protection and Alarm

Pros: Was heap and looks nice

Cons: Will not produce enough power for my craftsman 19.2volt battery charger. What a complete waist of money. The fault light will blink on and off and alarm will sound about once a second. I even connected the inverter directly to a 800+ cold cranking amp marine deep cycle battery that was fully charged and it still did the same thing.

Overall Review: I install for dish network and use my cordless impact and drill every day and sometimes i need to charge 1 of the battery packs while on the road. I bought this do that with and it clearly isn't up to standards. Very disappointed

Worst ram ever

G.SKILL Value 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNT
G.SKILL Value 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNT

Pros: none ?

Cons: Absolutely the worst ram i have ever used, Worked fine for about 30 days then all of a sudden blue screens and errors all over the place. I hate this ram and will never buy gskill again. If your looking for good ram, get another brand. cause i sure will

Overall Review: I herby call this product The Memory of DOOM, contacted Gskill about a replacement a few days ago and they haven't contacted me back yet. Half tempted to just get some Crucial and snap this ram in half so someone else doesn't live the same nightmare i have.
