Nippon Labs 2.5" Black SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model USB-25SATA-BK

Pros: USB powered. Lightweight, comes with a cable and sleeve.

Cons: The drive is not real secure in the case. You slide the drive into the top of the case, but its not attached.

Overall Review: EggSaver shipping is really slow. DHL got took 5 days to get the package from Memphis, TN to Atlanta, GA.

Most Critical Review

Okay - could be better

H&R BLOCK 2014 Deluxe Windows - Download
H&R BLOCK 2014 Deluxe Windows - Download

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Does not have all forms (e.g., electric vehicle credits) ***WARNING*** If you need to file state taxes too, don't buy this version. Each state costs $39.95. You can buy Federal+State for less.

Not bad

ICY DOCK Tool-less Dual 2.5 to 3.5 HDD Drive Bay SSD Mount / Kit / Bracket / Adapter - EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B
ICY DOCK Tool-less Dual 2.5 to 3.5 HDD Drive Bay SSD Mount / Kit / Bracket / Adapter - EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B

Pros: Lightweight and holds two drives.

Cons: Does not mount on Antec drive trays

Overall Review: There are no screw holes to mount this on the drive trays in my Antec case. I had to tape it to the tray.

Simple, easy to use

NETGEAR XET1001-100NAR Powerline Network Adapter Up to 85Mbps
NETGEAR XET1001-100NAR Powerline Network Adapter Up to 85Mbps

Pros: Just plug it in and it works. I have one plugged into a GCFI outlet and another into a UPS surge protector (both on the same breaker panel) and it works perfectly. I'm using it for a Directv HD DVR.

Cons: The lights on the front are a bit bright, especially for a bedroom. I covered mine.

Overall Review: It's so simple, I'm getting another one for a network printer.

Best Value

Polk Audio CS1 Cherry Center Channel Loudspeaker Single
Polk Audio CS1 Cherry Center Channel Loudspeaker Single

Pros: This is an incredible value in center channel speakers if you have the space to hold it. It matches perfectly with my monitor 30 fronts. This speaker was a noticeable improvement over my small Infinity center channel. Movie dialogue is clear and easy to hear.

Cons: None - just be sure you know how large it is.

Overall Review: Note that it's a bit heavy too.

Great Flash

Canon EOS Speedlite 580EX II Flash
Canon EOS Speedlite 580EX II Flash

Pros: Great light and a very intelligent device. I love the new locking foot switch, the redesigned battery door, and the fact that the cover to the external power connection now stays attached! This flash seems to power up faster and recycle faster than my 580ex I model and is definitely faster than my 550ex.

Cons: Access to the Master/Slave settings is not as easy as the older models, but it's still workable. Also, since the size of the head changed, my 580ex I diffuser does not fit this model.

Overall Review: Thanks to Newegg rush shipping I got this in one day, just in time to replace a defective flash and use at a wedding. Newegg is the place to go when you want great prices and quick handling of your order. I was going to just get a used 580ex I, but this newer model is not much more and is a better deal.
