GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, has PCIe 3.0, USB 3.0, two SATA III ports, Z77

Cons: Died after 10 days, fans wouldn't turn on or anything even after testing every other component in my built.
Also not a true ATX board as it isn't wide enough for the 3rd row of stand-offs. This makes it really hard to get things in like the 24-pin connector as the board ends up flexing without anything to push against.

Other Thoughts: Just skip this motherboard, maybe try the D3H for a few bucks more which is truly ATX sized but it too might die quickly.

PNY Optima 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model MN4096SD3-1066
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Was the cheapest at the time I bought it.

Cons: Can't for the life of it run stable in dual channel mode on a 13in 2009 MacBook Pro. Both sticks work fine separately and pass mem-test with flying colors but when you put 2 in the computer will just randomly kernel panic a lot.
So I decided to run with one 4GB sticks and my old 2GB Crucial stick for a few months and just cut my losses but then that 4GB stick ended up failing. I could no longer boot the computer up with it in.
So needless to say I am back to two 2GB Crucial sticks and wouldn't recommend these for any Mac users.

Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

4 out of 5 eggs Great Bluetooth Mouse 10/26/2009

This review is from: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

Pros: It's really hard to find a mouse that does not require an annoying dongle even with BT being so prevalent now a days, this does the trick quite well. While I haven't really owned any amazing mice in the past this mouse has great accuracy and works on more surfaces then anything I have ever used, but don't expect miracles. It's auto power off is nice and works great. It's also very small yet very usable. And I sense no detectable lag even when gaming but some people might be more 'sensitive' then me.

Cons: 4th button is kinda weird. Also the scroll wheel is very noisy and can be a little too easy to click sometimes but I don't have that happen often.

Other Thoughts: You're probably not going to find a better deal on a small BT mouse.
