Nice Hard drive

Toshiba N300 8TB NAS Internal Hard Drive 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5inch - HDWN180XZSTA (RETAIL PACKAGE)
Toshiba N300 8TB NAS Internal Hard Drive 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5inch - HDWN180XZSTA (RETAIL PACKAGE)

Pros: Great storage capacity! Runs quiet! All 8 GB show up on Windows 7 64 Bit! Read and write seem pretty quick for a platter drive.

Cons: No real cons..it's a tad heavy, but that's good, it means it is built strong!

Overall Review: Toshiba makes great hard drives, I highly recommend this drive if you have need for a large capacity storage drive. I installed this drive in my front room movie PC connected to my 32" Vizio TV, and now I am in the process of putting all my movies and other needed stuff on it.

Most Critical Review

Seems OK so far....

DEEPCOOL N6000 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" Metal Mesh Panel 200mm Fan with Blue LED
DEEPCOOL N6000 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" Metal Mesh Panel 200mm Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Packaged well, and fast delivery of course by the egg. Lightweight construction, which can be good and bad. It has 2 USB ports on the side, a ON/Off switch for the blue light, that way you do not have to have it on if you don't like it. You cannot actually see the bright blue light with a laptop on top of the cooler so I am not really sure why it even needs to be there. The fan speed is adjustable, with a little rolling switch like a volume control dial. Cooler size is perfect for my Dell Inspiron 1520 15.6 display machine.

Cons: So far at the time of this review, I type this out on my laptop with this cooler running. The fan noise is not acceptable. The lowest level is noisy, and the highest setting is very annoying! All the controls, the volume dial, and the fan light button feel cheap and probably will not last would be my guess.

Overall Review: Time will tell the true test of this laptop cooler. The size is perfect for my Dell Inspiron 1520, with a standard 15.6 display. And as long as the fan holds out, it will probably do a good job of keeping the PC cool, but with too much noise!

The Best PSU

CORSAIR CX-M CX650M 650 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi-Modular Power Supply
CORSAIR CX-M CX650M 650 W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi-Modular Power Supply

Pros: I have been using Corsair PSU's for several years now, and I have found them to be top notch for any, and all of the PC's I have built, and used for home, and business use. They provide plenty of steady power for all the internal components, and the modular quality of these units makes it super easy to install without a over abundance of cables filling up the PC case.

Cons: I can honestly say that I find nothing wrong, no cons to attach to these power supplies.

Overall Review: I can reccomend corsiar power supplies for you current or next computer build, either gaming, graphics, of simple home use.

Awesome PSU

CORSAIR RM850 CP-9020235-NA 850 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply
CORSAIR RM850 CP-9020235-NA 850 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply

Pros: Fully modular! Plenty of power! Quiet running! Easy install!

Cons: Heavy. If Corsair could make a PSU like this but have it half the weight, then it would be perfect!

Overall Review: I highly recommend this PSU for the serious PC user. I have been using Corsair power supplies in my PCs for the last 15 years, and they are reliable, and meet the needs of the average PC user, and those that are into gaming or have a dedicated rendering/graphics rig.

Pros: Easy set up on my Windows 10 PCInsert the disk, follow the steps, and Bob's your Uncle!I like the small foot print, and quiet operation.

Cons: The lid is kind of flimsy

Overall Review: If you want a simple, stand alone scanner for basic home use, than this is a good choice.
