Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great product that gets the job done! 05/25/2014

This review is from: Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Immediate response after sudden power outages
Cool and quiet
Easy installation

Cons: Bigger than expected

Other Thoughts: I built a desktop for my aunt and I wanted it to be a lower mid-range PC. The price of this combined with the specs was perfect, but before I found this I decided to go with an even cheaper brand which turned out to be a mistake. With the other brand I received 2 dead power supplies in a row then I found a list of power suppliers, their products, and the grades they receive. This Antec power supply was in the B+, A- range which was an even better deal.

One year later and there have been no hiccups even with power outages. It even performs better than the Rosewill 1000W power supply (which is going to be replaced soon) I have in my personal desktop which in a power outage I have to jump through all sorts of hoops to get back on.

Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs How not to do a high storage USB 3.0 flash drive 05/16/2014

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSMNUSB

Pros: Fast speeds
Looks nice

Cons: Bad housing
Big clunky design
Not as fast as it says
Heat problems
Frequently reinstalls drivers

Other Thoughts: I bought this when it first came out as it was the first of its kind and seemed like the best on the market. After trying it out the first time I noticed that the 100+ read/write speeds was clearly a lie, I barely got over 60mbps write using fastcopy on a usb 3.0 port, 8 core processor, 32gb ram computer. A few weeks later the flash drive fell out of the housing when I tried to insert it into a laptop at work. I had to tape it together until I found some super glue.

The housing has a big, clunky, poor design which falls apart because when you insert it, you're actually pushing it apart from the adhesive that holds it together. It's also so big so if you have adjacent ports, you're going to have to remove one so make room for this big thing.

I transferred about 750gb worth of files from my old laptop using this and it got really hot. Hopefully the heat doesn't destroy the drive, but I'm sure it also played a part into the housing falling apart as enough heat can mess with the adhesive.

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs How not to do a high storage USB 3.0 flash drive 05/16/2014

This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Magnum 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF256GSMNUSB

Pros: Fast write/read speeds
Looks nice

Cons: Nowhere near as fast as the specs say
Housing fell apart after a couple weeks of use because of poor design and bad materials
HUGE housing makes it very inconvenient as a flash drive
Tends to get hot after transferring large files
Frequently tries to re-install drivers upon insertion
