This review is from: Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition CO-9050009-WW 140mm High Airflow Case Fan
Pros: The fan moves a decent amount of air and is reasonably quiet while doing so.
This fan replaced the stock Corsair front intake on the 330R "quiet" case (the stock fan moved down to blow air over the HDD cage). Even with the front door closed, it does an admirable job of providing cool air to the GPU. Given that part of the results are due to the case design, the fan is, of course, integral to the final results so... with the front door closed in ambient temp of 20 deg, the GPU (GTX 770, reference cooler) hit 84 deg after sustained stress-testing. With the door open, it topped out at 82 deg.
Cons: Perhaps I'm just used to longer power cords, but the on on this fan seemed extremely short. I have it mounted as a front intake and had to buy an extension in order to reach the main bundle of connectors mid-way across the back of the motherboard tray. None of the other 3 case fans required this extension, including the front intake just below this fan which, oddly enough, is also a Corsair.
Other Thoughts: Decent fan. Find it on sale and buy yourself a fan header extension with the savings.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston 16GB microSDHC Flash Card with Adapters & USB Reader Model MBLYG2/16GB
Pros: I bought this 5/2009. I used it in my cell phone as media storage for 2 years until I upgraded to a 32GB card 10/2011. From there on, I used it as movie storage for a netbook... until I left it on a plane 11/2012. Worked like a champ, never had any file degradation issues and the read/write and transfer speeds were fine.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: I just bought a replacement (at a local brick and mortar store) yesterday. Instead of a traditional lanyard, I'm chaining it to my belt loop.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model CMFUSB2.0-2GB
Pros: Still works as good as it did the day I received it. I use it primarily to transfer documents between customers' new and old PCs and to transfer drivers to those new PCs. I couldn't accurately estimate how many GBs I've written to the drive, but I'd guess "a whole helluva lot" is pretty close.
Cons: I did lose the cap once. Found it when my robot vacuum cleaner choked on it.
Other Thoughts: I've seen lots of complaints regarding Corsair's newer drives dying after a short period of time. They should repackage these guys and sell them new :)READ FULL REVIEW
