Easy to use

WD TV Play Media Player WDBMBA0000NBK-HESN
WD TV Play Media Player WDBMBA0000NBK-HESN

Pros: Very simple interface and responsive interface. Easy to figure out the various settings, and quick to get up & running.

Cons: Using the remote can be a little bit of a hassle when you are performing the initial setup (entering usernames/passwords for apps, etc). Has quite a few apps that are not very common for a lot of people.

Overall Review: I purchased a couple of these, one for my wife, and one for my mother, neither of which are very tech savvy, and both of them find them easy to use. There were quite a few apps that I think very few people would end up using, but they are easily hidden by using the favorites page/screen.

Mediocre sound

Arctic Cooling P253BT Bluetooth Headphones with Mic
Arctic Cooling P253BT Bluetooth Headphones with Mic

Pros: Inexpensive and nice to use when you need to move around

Cons: Sound isn't the greatest, sometimes sounding "tinny", and I sometimes have troubles getting them to fully connect to the PC.

Overall Review: I generally use these in the office when I am in need of more mobility, especially when I am doing video chats with people. They work just fine for speech communication, but you don't really get the sound quality you are looking for if you are trying to listen to music or watch a movie. Overall, they aren't too bad, just be aware of what you are trying to use them for.

Works as expected

ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Overclocked 6GB Phoenix Fan Edition HDMI DP DVI Graphics Card (PH-GTX1660-O6G)
ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Overclocked 6GB Phoenix Fan Edition HDMI DP DVI Graphics Card (PH-GTX1660-O6G)

Pros: Picked up to replace an aging GTX 1060, and it is doing its job wonderfully.

Cons: Nothing of significance, the upgrade from the GTX 1060 went about as smoothly as you would expect.

Overall Review: Works well.

Simple to use, takes some learning

Totem CNC Laser Engraving Machine 2.5W 30 x 40cm 2Axis DIY Engraver Desktop Wood Router / Cutter / Printer + Laser Goggles
Totem CNC Laser Engraving Machine 2.5W 30 x 40cm 2Axis DIY Engraver Desktop Wood Router / Cutter / Printer + Laser Goggles

Pros: After getting the laser engraver set up, and figuring out how to use the software, it's pretty simple to use.

Cons: Being a kit CNC engraver, there's a lot that goes into getting this put together. Expect to take at least 3 hours of time just fiddling with the puzzle. Once you get that all set up, the software is not intuitive to use at first, and it took me quite a while to figure out how to even get the laser to focus, which required installing the additional "Custom Buttons" package in the LaserGRBL software. I've also apparently run into a problem where the steppers don't want to move the gantry carriage properly, but this could just be that I need to make adjustments (and haven't had time, yet).

Overall Review: It's a cheap laser CNC engraver that takes a bit of work to put together and some time to figure out to use, but it does a pretty decent job.

Works well after some effort

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6600 XT EAGLE 8G Graphics Card, WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System, 8GB 128-bit GDDR6, GV-R66XTEAGLE-8GD Video Card
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6600 XT EAGLE 8G Graphics Card, WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System, 8GB 128-bit GDDR6, GV-R66XTEAGLE-8GD Video Card

Pros: This video card is a significant upgrade over the GTX 1060 that I had, and is performing quite well so far.

Cons: Getting this card to work was a bear of a challenge. After installing it, I was met with "Input not Recognized" on my monitor, which I figured was due to the standard drivers included in Windows not working properly (they were showing up in Device Manager as having issues). After reinstalling my old card in the other slot, I was able to get the drivers installed, but the card didn't appear to be working, still, so I rebooted and noticed that my motherboard (MSI X370 Gaming Plus) wasn't recognizing the card, so I figured I had to update the BIOS, but upon attempting that, I learned that the motherboard doesn't like displaying things via Display Port while in "flash" mode, which resulted in me having to reset the CMOS. After resetting the CMOS and connecting my monitor via HDMI, I was finally able to flash the BIOS, and everything was then being recognized. If I was just a simple hobbyist, this would have been a major issue, so be careful buying this if you don't know what you're doing.

Overall Review: Overall, I am satisfied with the card so far, it was just kind of a pain to get set up in the first place.

Works as expected

EVGA 500 W3, 80+ 500W, Compact 140mm Size, Non-Modular Active PFC Power Supply, 3 Year Warranty, 100-W3-0500-K1
EVGA 500 W3, 80+ 500W, Compact 140mm Size, Non-Modular Active PFC Power Supply, 3 Year Warranty, 100-W3-0500-K1

Pros: Power Supply works as expected.

Cons: The cables are almost excessively long for my needs.

Overall Review: What can I say, this is an inexpensive power supply and it works as expected. It is a non-modular power supply, and the cables are almost excessively long for my usage, but that's not necessarily a bad thing for other situations, it just made cable management within the box a bit more cumbersome.
