Best 8 Port Ever!

NETGEAR 8-Port Fast Ethernet 10/100 Unmanaged Switch (FS108NA)
NETGEAR 8-Port Fast Ethernet 10/100 Unmanaged Switch (FS108NA)

Pros: Best 8 port unmanaged switch ever created for the benefit of mankind. I replace old and fairly new Lxxxxxs switches on regular basis with these. The Prosafe product line runs circles around anything out there, PERIOD.

Cons: NONE!

MSI, G31

MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: In-expensive, booted up first time, zero issues. The way I like it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Too be honest, I bought this simply because it was red and black to replace another board in a customized PC. I believe I got a great deal, time will tell.

CTA Wii Power Station

CTA Digital Ultimate Power Station for Wii
CTA Digital Ultimate Power Station for Wii

Pros: In-expensive, fairly easy to setup. Cools Wii very well.

Cons: 40mm fan is a bit noisy when it is the only thing running in a room. No problem, simply shut off the power station/Wii.

Overall Review: Its 35 bucks and thats what you get. Rechargeable battery packs...too early to tell.

My 2 cents

Logitech 980231-0403 Gold Plated Audio Connectors Connector Circumaural Precision PC Gaming Headset
Logitech 980231-0403 Gold Plated Audio Connectors Connector Circumaural Precision PC Gaming Headset

Pros: I needed a headset bad...I surfed Newegg and went with this since it had a very good price. The microphone on my exact same last pair finally quit. The previous headset was of decent quality and thats why I decided to go with it again. It has decent bass, and noise isolation while not making your ears sweat. Sometimes I simply wrap it around my neck which permits me to hear my kids when we are playing online. Connection cable is super long alonging me to route it around my PC or recline and watch a movie.

Cons: Can not handle my abuse/temper :)

Overall Review: Please bare in mind, my last exact same pair was highly abused. This company makes excellent(4 egg or star) products versus price but you get what you pay for. Someday I will step up to nicer set.

GO N310

SAMSUNG GO N310-13GB Navy Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60GHz) 10.1" WSVGA 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook
SAMSUNG GO N310-13GB Navy Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60GHz) 10.1" WSVGA 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook

Pros: Sturdy, well constructed, feels solid. The battery life is pretty good. Compact design is perfect for my needs(see thoughts). Even though it only has 1 gig of memory it surfs the net just fine. Came with Win XP...perfect since I work on 90% XP PCs which makes it ideal to fly through settings while helping customers. I also have it dual boot using Ubuntu Netbook Remix...flawless.

Cons: Graphics could be a little more powerful compared to the some newer netbooks with ION LE HDMI graphics. Be advised, due to its design some of the features on the installed XP are not present.

Overall Review: I use this mainly for work as remote client PC but works great at home for my wife to check email and do family budget stuff. I got mine at an incredible price at newegg(who rock!).

Legacy P4 board

BIOSTAR P4M900M4 Socket 478 VIA P4M900 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
BIOSTAR P4M900M4 Socket 478 VIA P4M900 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: First board quit...could be my fault but not tellin...Biostar RMA'd it. Second board running over a year now as my "lab rat" in testing operating systems...Linux, XP, Win7...yes thats right a 2.8 ghz Prescott on Win 7 RC, it runs very well. Drivers not an issue.

Cons: Not enough Sata connections...oh well. Could use nicer heat sinks on the voltage regulators since they get really warm.

Overall Review: Wow, Nov 09 and people are still buying this board! Great board if you are still determined to get your 100 plus dollars out of the 478 pin Intel processor. Nuff said.
