Most Critical Review

dispointment all around

G.SKILL 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) FM-25S2S-128GB
G.SKILL 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) FM-25S2S-128GB

Pros: -easy install & imaging - quieter than my old mechanical sata 74gb 10k HDD

Cons: - WinXp hangs @ start up and occasionally during use. - Non-existent documentation for avoiding above problems included with the product or on the g.skill website - slower than my old mechanical sata 74gb 10k HDD - support forums are dead in comparison to others where the support staff seems very proactive about providing solutions

Overall Review: I expected at minimum faster start up and quicker load times for applications. Neither happened and now I have the added pleasure of having Winxp hang and stutter. I know that WinXp is not optimized for SSD and that I need to tweak some things but G.skill should have provided better documentation somewhere along the way. I am currently awaiting a G.skill moderator to allow me to post on their forums to request assistance. Other support forums are busy with activity and their support staff seems very proactive, About providing solutions and erasing posts about competitors products. While the G.Skill forums are almost deserted with no guides or info. Did I mention that the manufactures page has pictures of the SSD that you can download but no manual!

Super simple install!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: The installation was super easy! My machine is running about 20 degrees cooler at idle. i haven't thrown anything particularly challenging at it just watching the temps for now. My machine is much quieter now as well, I look forward to having one less fan in my case.

Cons: The location of the coolant hoses obstructs one screw on the brackets. The proper sized screwdriver and it shouldn't really be an issue.

great no problems

Cons: none

Overall Review: this is on the corsair phenom II supported list.

awesome value

SAMSUNG 2343BWX High Glossy Black 23" 5ms 16:9 Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 20000:1 (DC) w/ HDCP Support
SAMSUNG 2343BWX High Glossy Black 23" 5ms 16:9 Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 20000:1 (DC) w/ HDCP Support

Pros: big, bright and sharp. No dead or stuck pixels. Samsung 3yr limited warranty. And an awesome price.

Cons: shiny black bezel and those darn smooth buttons that is standard for most samsung LCD monitors nowadays.

Overall Review: The Samsung 3yr limited warranty, which I just put to the test with a different monitor is great. I didnt have to spend a cent and they refurbed my malfunctioning monitor in under 2 weeks (including shipping to the service center and back)

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD3000HLFS 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: works real nice running win 7 boots realfast lots of space for a 10k drive

Cons: none that I am aware of

Overall Review: I think I paid about the same price for my 74gb sata raptor a few years ago. That drive was getting a bit long on tooth so Ive set it out to pasture.
