Most Favorable Review

Glad I went with this

Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate for System Builders Single Pack DVD
Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate for System Builders Single Pack DVD

Pros: 64-bit OS, great layout, stable. A lot of software is now available for use on x64 systems.

Cons: User Account Control is annoying at first when you are re-installing all of your software.

Overall Review: I was hesitant to purchase Vista after all of the bad press there is about it. However, I realized that most people have probably never used it or are just hating on MS. I understand an older computer will have a hard time running the OS, but the user is able to turn off Aero and have a setup similar to XP. I also don't know what the guy is talking about SP1 being 5 gigs. It's around a 150-200 MB compressed download. There are currently 34 language packs at around 150 MB each, but why would you install all of those?

The best router for the money

Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router up to 54 Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router up to 54 Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)

Pros: Supports 3rd party firmware. Stable!

Cons: No USB port

Overall Review: This is the best router for the money for any user. Flashing with DD-WRT makes this router very powerful.

Update on my last review

Nokia E71 Unlocked GSM Bar Phone with Full QWERTY Keyboard 2.36" Gray 110 MB internal dynamic memory
Nokia E71 Unlocked GSM Bar Phone with Full QWERTY Keyboard 2.36" Gray 110 MB internal dynamic memory

Pros: See Other thoughts

Cons: See Other thoughts

Overall Review: Some people simply do not know what they are talking about in their reviews. HTML e-mail is available on this phone, however, you must look at the attachment with the e-mails to view it in the web browser. Also, the US version (which is this one) does NOT come with a 2GB microSD card. One customer said, "...it has some sort of thermal sensor or shock sensor, or might be an accelerometer! who knows..." This is incorrect. The light simply pulses.

Great Phone!

Nokia E71 Unlocked GSM Bar Phone with Full QWERTY Keyboard 2.36" Gray 110 MB internal dynamic memory

Pros: S60 OS, great form factor, full QWERTY keyboard, A-GPS

Cons: The video screen is only 15 FPS, still runs Real player, 2.5mm headphone jack

Overall Review: I had the Nokia e51 for a week before I saw the Newegg price for the e71. This is a great phone and there is no better place to buy than here.

I like Bose

Bose® Companion® 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System
Bose® Companion® 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

Pros: Great sound from quality speakers. Nice design.

Cons: None

Overall Review: These speakers sound great and contain a built in subwoofer. To me, that was a plus because I have a lot of cables, a router, and cable modem below my desk and I didn't want a subwoofer down there as well. Speakers are something you should hear for yourself before making a purchase.

Great Power Supply

SeaSonic M12 SS-600HM 600W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
SeaSonic M12 SS-600HM 600W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Very quiet and stable.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I probably could have gotten away with a 500W power supply, but I figure I will be adding some components over the years.
