This review is from: SILVERSTONE SST-ST40F-ES 400W ATX 12V 2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: The price is right for a low wattage PSU that makes no noise. The cables are totally manageable (a real selling point for me in the future). This is a solid choice for a system with low power requirements.
Cons: Silverstone didn't prepare a nice bowl of ice cream for me while I installed this PSU in my client's system.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case looks great to begin with, let alone for the price you pay for it. I was proud to present my client with a system housed in this case; no gimmicky features or cheesy visual drawbacks whatsoever.
The case seems to be of really good construction, nothing about it feels flimsy.
Behind the front panel is a really neat removable 120mm fan mount which made fan installation really easy. If you don't like the media card reader/writer, it's a removable, drive-sized device which can be used in another system.
Both side panels come off.
Cons: The fan that came with this case is a real noise maker, the USB jacks on the front panel are aggressively snug (but functional), and I thought I was going to break the front panel while removing it.
Newegg isn't going to send me 5 or 6 of these for free.
Other Thoughts: Once I replaced the noisy fan with a silent 120mm fan, the case was stealthy. The cons listed are really worth getting over for this case. Don't be nervous that this item has only been reviewed twice, it's undercover awesome.
I can't vouch for the power supply; with few exceptions, I always replace stock PSUs with well researched (and known to be reliable) alternatives.
This review is from: iomega USB SuperSlim DVD Portable Writer Model 34427
Pros: This drive is relatively silent, compact, lightweight, and reliable. Neither my wife nor I have managed to burn even one coaster with it so far. This drive seems to take less time to finalize a disk than other drives (internal or external) I've used in the past.
Cons: The casing is very thin, so you'll want to close the tray by grabbing the drive from the sides instead of the top, or the casing gets in the way of the drive fully closing.
New Egg doesn't pay me to sit in the dark and write reviews.
Other Thoughts: The USB cable forks off to provide additional power to the drive. I wouldn't care if the additional cord wasn't as long as the cord that extends from the drive to the computer. All the extra cord is unsightly, but this would be useful if each side of your laptop only had one working USB port.READ FULL REVIEW
