Pros: Quite, cheap, easy to install, does the job
Cons: Probably won't fit in mini cases.
Pros: Does the job
Cons: None so far
Pros: Its cheap, and it does that is intended
Cons: Back port on these things wear out fast. Mine lasted a few months i think before the back port just seems to become stripped. I'm super delegate with hardware, and this thing just was not built to be something that does anything other than sit in place and never be touched again.
Overall Review: Like I said in the title: you get what you pay for.
Pros: Love these little guys! I didn't have enough SATA Power cables for my setup, but these did the job quite well for me.
I used these to connect to both SATA III and SATA II drives with no problems.
Pros: Works as expected - really like the display and the design of the case
Pros: Beautiful Screen, awesome layout and very easy to customize.
One thing to note is that you'll see some comments below complaining that "...the DVI cable doesn't support 2560x1080...". That's true - but it is true for all single-link DVI cables (which max out at 1920x1200) - you need a dual link DVI cable for the 2560x1080 support.. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface for more information..
Considering I bought this for my mac, I also needed a Display Port Adapter to get the most bang for my buck. The product I bought for this is here:
All in all, this is a great monitor and works as expected.
Cons: Only 3 cons (of which only 2 are truly cons)
1) No Height Adjustment
2) The control buttons on the bottom are SUPER sensitive to touch - but the amount of control they give you for configuring this behemoth kind of makes up for this ;)
3) This is the one which is not truly a con: unless you get a dual link DVI cable (or a Display Port adapter if you want to go mac), the screen is going to look a little stretched and even fuzzy. Unfortunately, there really isn't much you can do about this because of the reasoning described above about the maximum resolution ranges standard cables will support
Pros: Spacious, Beautiful Design, Easy to Work with, easy to clean, and quiet. Out of all the cases I've ever bought - this is my favorite.
Pros: If you're looking for a 14 megapixel camera for cheap and without too many bells and whistles, this is the product for you.
Cons: I bought this for my mother in law. My mother had the earlier version which resulted in a lot of blurry pictures. I hoped this would have been resolved with the updated version (this one) but it unfortunately has the same issues.
The steady cam option sucks and actually makes the picture quality worse. The LCD display show noise-filled images (lots of static in the display) until you hold the button down for it to adjust the quality.
If you use the flash, it takes 3-5 seconds for Flash to recharge before you can take another picture.
The battery life on this thing is HORRIBLE. Went through 3 packs of batteries in less than a day. Completely unacceptable.
Overall Review: Overall, not exactly the camera I thought it would be. We wanted to give the mother in law a great camera but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. For a Canon (who is one of the best camera manufacturer's out there), this was a huge disappointment. We are about to return this and look for another option.
Pros: I have a Asus G73sw that was already awesome, but was never getting the top performance it was capable of due to the stock drive that came with it. For instance, I had a 45 second boot time, and a 5.1 Win 7 rating (just because of the drive). So, I bought this drive hoping for a better experience.
Installation took about 5-10 minutes, and then opted to do a fresh install of windows 7 (backed everything up to my downstairs fileserver). The results were amazing!
New Windows 7 Rating: 7.1 (this was due to the video card now. the hard drive gives a 7.9 rating!!!)
Cold Boot into Windows 7 Time: 7 seconds!!!!
The drive is just simply amazing. Fast, responsive, and rocking.
For anyone who is a new to the whole ssd world, I'd HIGHLY recommend you read the article "Windows 7 and SSDs: Setup secrets and tune-up tweaks" on zdnet before you get started...
Cons: The only con I have was related to my own Laptop. The Asus g73sw extra drive bay does not have a casing support for a new drive (you'll have to buy this or call asus to get one). That really sucks because the drive extender that comes with this SSD is not at all enough to make the drive fit snug.
Again, this is mainly because of Asus' design I think. Although there are a lot of others complaining about this.
I don't really feel comfortable with the drive just sitting in there the way it is, but it will have to do until I can figure out how to get the new housing case.
Overall Review: Don't buy this because it comes with a Batman game (personally, the game isn't all that great). Buy it because this drive will be the eye opener you need for the future of performance.
Pros: Great mobo! Easy to work with, and everything is spaced out just like I wanted it.
Cons: Wish it had on-board video. I hate wasting money on video cards when I don't care.. =] but that's just being picky
Pros: New Egg refunded my money.
Cons: I read many reviews here. Some say theirs was DOA, some say it worked fine. I took a huge chance with this once since the one I wanted was on backorder. Was a terrible mistake. It was DOA. Ended up getting the one I wanted anyways
Pros: It's memory, what else do you want to say about it? It worked perfectly out of the box and I've had no issues.
Pros: Great DVD RW. Been using it since I got it and it works nice and smooth with no problems at all.
Pros: I've worked with a lot of cases, but this one takes the cake (especially with this price). Easy to install things and has lots of room for more.
Very quiet machine and keeps pretty cool. I also got the Thermaltake Pwer Supply with it (500W).
Cons: Being a little nit-picky here:
The HD tray's screw is a bit of a waste and gets in the way. I removed mine as it's just not needed.
The door is easy to take off and a pain to get back on.
Pros: Great powersupply!! Worked perfectly with no problem. Love the way the wires are coated and protected. Also, lots of power sources. 5 Stars!
Overall Review: Just being a little picky here. It comes with a 2x2 power socket for the 12v connection to the mobo (which is a 4x4 connection). My motherboard came with the converter thankfully, but maybe something to consider.
Pros: Great picture, easy to setup/configure, very nice details.
Pros: It came packaged up...
Cons: It doesn't work..at all. I read the reviews about a few people getting DOA's and others who say the product was fine, so I took a chance. I got a DOA. Stay away from this MOBO. It will be nothing but trouble for you.
