MSI N650-MD1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

4 out of 5 eggs Good for everything but SecureBoot 10/13/2013

This review is from: MSI N650-MD1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Good performance for the price. Quiet fan. Working fine in Windows 8.1 with no hassles. One output connection of each major kind, so typically no adapters needed. MSI's "Live Update" software would download and install new firmware for the card, if there were any.

Cons: Doesn't exhaust all out the rear bracket. Doesn't support Windows 8 "SecureBoot"; how about some updated firmware, MSI?

Other Thoughts: Using this card on an MSI H77MA-G43 motherboard.

5MW Green Astronomy Powerful Laser Pointer Pen

5 out of 5 eggs Powerful, indeed 12/01/2012

This review is from: 5MW Green Astronomy Powerful Laser Pointer Pen

Pros: Strong, vivid laser spot. On a reflective surface it can be almost dazzling. Uses ordinary AAAs instead of expensive and short-lived watch batteries.

Cons: A bit bulky, but that's an okay tradeoff for using AAAs.

Other Thoughts: Cats are notorious for chasing red laser-pointer dots. Interestingly, my mother's cat was totally indifferent to this green laser dot, but kept trying to sniff and paw at the beam. Fortunately I bought it to use as an actual pointer and not as a cat toy.

SILVERSTONE ST60F 600W ATX 12V 2.01 / EPS 12V SLI Ready Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Voltages are stable. Cabling is plentiful. Modular cables keep the clutter down. The black mounting screws are a nice touch.

Cons: The modular cabling isn't as modular as it could be, i.e. this has all six SATA power connectors on one harness. And maybe I got one with a bad fan, or maybe I'm spoiled by the Antec that this replaced, but it's not quiet.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the fan with a 120mm SilenX and the power-supply noise is unnoticeable again.
