Pros: It was only $17 with free shipping.
Cons: Dead after three days. Drive still spun and was detected by motherboard and OS install CD but would it could not be formatted or partitioned. Seems the read/write heads went out.
Other Thoughts: I never buy refurbs but this was only $17 and had rather good reviews for refurbs so I decided to give it a shot. Didn't need a very large drive to build my girlfriend's daughter a box to play Minecraft on, so this would have been perfect.
Newegg paid to have it shipped back so I didn't have to, which was awesome. There are no more in stock so I couldn't get a replacement. Newegg policy won't refund for refurbished items but since it was out of stock they refunded me anyway.
Thanks Newegg. That's why I continue to shop with you.
This review is from: Rosewill RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3 6 ft. Black High Speed HDMI Cable M-M
Pros: 6 feet for cheap, but it's not cheap quality. I use it to connect to my 48 inch 1080p TV which is pretty amazing.
Cons: It refuses to cook me breakfast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Modular cables reduce the amount of clutter and airflow restriction. Nice blue LED
Cons: With my first RX-530 I had no idea how loud this sucker is when you have a high end video card drawing power from it.
The worst problem is that the 6+2 pin connectors for the video card are so poorly designed that the cable itself sticks straight out of the video card and into one of my case fans. I had to disconnect the fan because of this. As if this weren't bad enough, my case has beveled side panels to give more room inside. If I had straight, flat side panels, I wouldn't even have been able to put the side panel back on.
Clearly, this is all unacceptable so I have purchased a Corsair PSU and once it arrives I will be returning the RaidMax one.
Other Thoughts: My first RX-530 lasted for about four years until the fan died and the PSU overheated and blew out. There is some chance that this was my fault so I won't hold that against RaidMax, but this problem with the ultra stiff, poorly designed 6+2 pin PCI-e power connectors is just plain not acceptable.READ FULL REVIEW
