Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this drive at retail a while back, kingston is on top of their SSD game.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: @ "last straw" review: there is no "missing capacity." Storage manufacturers have ALWAYS advertised capacities as ACTUAL gigabytes (prefixes are factors of 1000), and windows has always displayed storage capacity as GIBIbytes (prefixes are factors of 1024.) Watch this:

Advertised: 120 GB = 120 * 1000 M/G * 1000 K/M * 1000 B/K = 120,000,000,000 bytes

Windows: 120,000,000,000 B / 1024 B/K / 1024 K/M / 1024 M/G = 111.758 GB

Open my computer, right click the drive, go to properties, and look at "capacity", and what do you know, 120,000,000,000 bytes, if not more!!!

LG Nexus 4 E960 16 GB storage, 2 GB RAM 3G 4G LTE Black 16GB Unlocked Cell Phone 4.7
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easily the best phone money can buy. Always responsive and smooth, high quality display and construction, and good battery life. You'll be paying at least twice as much for something comparable, like the S3, S4, Note II, Razr HD, HTC One, LG Optimus, etc.

Cons: Cheaper on the official Google Play Store.

Other Thoughts: Responding to the first reviewer: If you want to get the most out of the display, install the ParanoidAndroid ROM or another kernel that allows calibration and look up some people's settings, you can get OLED-level color and contrast without the burn-in or pentile. As for the audio quality, in addition to the above, look for a kernel that supports speaker gain adjustment, you can turn down the gain and increase the volume to get better sound. The Franco, Faux, and Motley kernels from xda-developers will do the trick. The battery can be replaced, but you'll have to undo some screws and tape.

XIGMATEK FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing) Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1455 140mm Purple LED Case Fan PSU Molex Adapter/extender included
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: These fans glow a dim but very deep purple. Late at night when my eyes are completely dark adjusted, I still can't see the light from these fans anywhere but the carpet right next to the case and the fans themselves, while the single blue LEDs in my power button and HDD access light are visible on the ceiling. They're also some of my most powerful fans and also my quietest after having them for 18 months with ~10000 hours of runtime.

Cons: They're not cheap... a set of 4 of these and 4 of the 120mm variants (CLF-F1255) to completely saturate my case cost around $100.

Other Thoughts: Given their apparent diurability, I'd say they're worth it.
