CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series CP600LCD 600VA 340W 4 x 5-15R Battery/Surge Protected
4 x 5-15R Surge Protected Outlets UPS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works as stated, make sure you use the provided software with a usb cable to the pc if you want it to detect a power failure loss properly. Easy to read lcd display, the software is great too, easy to use with alerts.

Cons: I wish the display stayed on full time, you have to click it once to make it visible.

Other Thoughts: You don't need as much power as you think you do, I run a gaming pc with a 43in led-lcd tv (as a pc monitor) off the battery backup and I get 15 mins when power drops out. Don't waste money on higher VA units if you don't need more time, in all honestly 5 mins is usually more than most anyone will need to do a safe shutdown or carry you through a power interruption.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: At the time it was leading in performance but that was nearly 5 years ago. It ran very solid, I never had any firmware issues.

Cons: It died 1 month before the warranty was to expire, but if a drive is going to fail, you want it to do so within the warranty period so it could be worse.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had kept working, I only lost some minor data due to the drives age, I had already moved any important data off of it. Surprised it actually ran as long as it did, Seagate has already approved my return and will be sending me a refurbished replacement.

MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Runs quiet, performed well for the tasks I had, at the time I believe it was priced well, not sure if you can even buy this anymore though.

Cons: Cooling was lack luster, seemed like it would run cool but it didn't seem to be very impressive. It started causing unexpected reboots about 2 years in, so I'm now in the market for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Most cards I've owned lasted longer, considering this was suppose to be "Military Class Components" I expected more out of it, seems like a gimic to sell units. I'll most likely look at other brands, first impressions are key and MSI failed to impress =/
