Most Favorable Review

Works

Kingston 512MB PC133 Memory for Apple Desktop Model KTA-G4133/512
Kingston 512MB PC133 Memory for Apple Desktop Model KTA-G4133/512

Pros: Works perfect in my 733mhz PowerMac. It's ram. What else can I say?

Cons: none

Overall Review: Don't make the mistake I did by using non-Mac specific ram. It will seriously mess up your system. This stuff is Mac-specific and works well.

Most Critical Review

Meh

LITE-ON SK-1688A/B Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard
LITE-ON SK-1688A/B Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard

Pros: decent for a cheap keyboard

Cons: I found the keys to be a bit mushy. I guess I like a more tactile feel to a keyboard.

great for data recovery

FireWire 800 IEEE1394b 2 Port and 400 IEEE1394a 1 Port to Mini PCIe Controller Card - SI-MPE30018

Pros: I purchased this drive dock after for the purpose of data recovery. This is the only one I found that is a true SATA throughput, therefore it is not limited by a bridge board like other models. The dock clamps the drives in place securely. Also the plate in the middle protects the circuit board on hard drives. This as been an excellent solution for data recovery.

Cons: none as of now

Don't listen to the guy that complained about capacity

Hitachi GST Deskstar P7K500 HDP725025GLAT80 (00A35390) 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA133 / ATA-7 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Don't let the guy who complained about the 127GB limit fool you. He just doesn't understand that on some older computers, the motherboard has a capacity limit to 127GB (exactly). This is not a software issue or a Hard drive issue but merely a limit capacity of the MB. If you have 48bit LGA ATA or higher you should be fine. For instance: the Powermac G4 got this change in Jan of 2002. Hope this helps

Cons: Forget what people say when they don't have the technical expertise.

best value for the price

Logitech X-140 5 watts 2.0 Speakers

Pros: for the price these are great.

Cons: not for what you pay for

Overall Review: they are not the best but not the worst either. If you want better, pay more.

Must have

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: This stuff is a MUST. It will lower your temp if you replace that stupid paste gunk that is on stock coolers.

Cons: none

Overall Review: just get some!
