Most Favorable Review

Asus Prob - But Great RAM!

HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2K2/4G
HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2K2/4G

Pros: Great timing, fantastic price, great speed as well

Cons: Not compatable with Asus P5Q SE/R with more than 4 or 6GB of RAM!

Overall Review: I worked on this one for about a month - with more than 4 GB of RAM, the P5Q SE/R would start getting flakey with Blue Screens and file corruptions. Clocking down to DDR2800 makes it pretty stable with 6GB, but still inconsistent quirks, freezes, etc. Asus will not support it from what they say since it is NOT on their QVL (although the 1GB version of this RAM is). NewEgg came to the rescue and RMA'd the mobo - will switch to a Gigabyte board!

Most Critical Review

NewEgg Good - Reader Bad

SYBA SD-U2CR-CHC 20-in-1 USB 2.0 Blue Compact Memory Card Reader
SYBA SD-U2CR-CHC 20-in-1 USB 2.0 Blue Compact Memory Card Reader

Pros: Small, cheap

Cons: Unit performed similar to other users who had issues with 2GB cards. All the machines I plugged the unit into would lock upon inserting the card, and then go on to find the drives unrecognized.

Overall Review: Hopefully with these complaints this unit will no longer be sold.

Great For Price

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Easy to build and configure, well placed fan positions, 3 speed fan selectors.

Cons: Need to make sure your power supply has a long enough power lead since it's at the bottom!

Overall Review: The case is great - good looking, easy to assemble (the front fan locations are a cinch with the thumb screw cages for them. Only thing was I had to use the extension on my CoolMax power supply to reach the mobo connector - not terrible or anything against the case, I'm just glad I didn't need to go find another powersupply!

Excellent Value

RiDATA Lightning Series 4GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model CFR4G-233X-LIG2
RiDATA Lightning Series 4GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model CFR4G-233X-LIG2

Pros: Reasonably fast, consistent, cheap, and just work!

Cons: None that I've encountered.

Overall Review: These have worked very well on my Nikon D300 and also with my friend's Canon 40D with no ill effects or corrupted files. I also use these pretty heavily as a new wedding photog, so the cost is very benifical and I've never had a bad image or bad card.

Great Bang For the Buck

Dolica WT1003 4-sections monopod

Pros: For the price, you get a great monopod. The unit locks snug to the height you need and doesn't budge, feels sturdy, light, and the carrying case helps keep it together with my other equipment on my small Canon bag.

Cons: The carrying bag could be designed a little easier to get the unit in and out quickly, but I'm picky.

Overall Review: Worked great while at my friend's wedding and at the Scottish games held last month.
