Pros: I have a Maximus VIII Hero motherboard and there are lots of issues with RAM not being cooperative but these worked perfect right out of the box. They fit with plenty (Several mm) of room to spare with my EVO 212 cooler.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Other Thoughts: I have not done any overclocking yet, I just built my system. I would buy 2 more sticks but come on, who needs more than 16GB right now?

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect! Works great as a PC game controller. 12/13/2015

This review is from: Microsoft 52A-00004 Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

Pros: Exact specs/shape of the XBOX 360 controller...seems legit, with a hologram microsoft sticker and everything....but it does ship straight from china...Windows immediately recognized it and allowed for mapping of all the buttons.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a WIRED usb controller just because I prefer it to wireless for PC gaming. This controller was a great choice and whether I'm playing an old school NES emulator or I want to drive in GTA it works great.

HGST Travelstar Z5K320 HTS543232A7A384 (Part#: 0A78603) 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5

Pros: Low price, high space replacement hard drive for a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Paid Fourty Nine Dollars with a promo code on Aug 8 2012

Cons: The SATA power and data connecters taper oddly resulting in difficulty connecting to laptop on board receptacles.

Other Thoughts: So here is the deal with the inspirion 1545. The stock Toshiba fail 9000 drive that came with the inspiron has square tipped metal connectors on the SATA power and data tabs (the L shaped connectors). This Hitachi drive has tapered ends that terminate in a narrowing point that fades into the tip of the connector. That narrowing/depression results in it coming just short of reaching the Inspiron 1545 drive receptacle. The solution is to NOT attach the drive to the guide harness and carefully lower it in to a vertical laptop (hard drive opening up) Then you line it up and push the drive into the connectors. Then slide the drive tray in around it. You will notice the screw holes on the bottom of the laptop will reach the drive and help hold it in place. I was not able to attach the drive to the tray and get a connection.
