Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Obihai OBi200 04/11/2015

This review is from: Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

Pros: Simple to configure. Clear calling. Transparent to the end user.

Cons: Advanced user interface a little difficult to navigate.

Other Thoughts: I have a 120Mps connection so bandwidth use I can't comment on. Using the quick start booklet that came with the device, I had my regular home phone using a Google voice number I got a little while back in about 5 minutes. Adding to that, the Obihai worked with the international dialing feature of Google voice without a hitch allowing me to call Germany and the UK for only 0.01 cent a minute to a land-line. Free calls to the US and super cheap calls to Europe? What is there not to like.

COOLMAX ZU Series ZU-800B 800W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It powers up my PC. It's modular.

Cons: It can't even supply 300W. It's junk.

Other Thoughts: So I went cheap I admit it and paid the price. It didn't last 3 months before shutting down my PC when any load was put on it. When I did a reboot my MB, an ASUS Z97-AR would warn about a surge in the PSU. So I changed the PSU and this time I went with a high end Corsair HX850i and using the link software I monitored the power usage when I played a game. 300w was what I was consuming. The Coolmax isn't worth the headache and it most definitely wasn't coming even close to the advertised rating of 800w.

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very quiet. No coil whine. Blazing performance in real world gaming. 5760x1080 capable.

Cons: I can't afford two.

Other Thoughts: Went from 2x7870 crossfire setup to a single 970 card. Benchmarks are showing slightly slower speeds with the 970 but to be honest I don't see it gaming. What I do see is richer graphics and what I don't hear is fans howling under load. I was just tired of constantly fighting with Catalyst drivers to make things work and so far playing FC4 and Alien Isolation as examples, the experience with the 970 has been awesome.
