This review is from: Friedrich D70BP 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Built-in Drain Pump
Pros: Build quality is better than average.
Set from 30% up on humidity control, Shows temperature plus what the humidity is after you set it.
All digital controls and easy read outs.
washable filter on air intake.
Bucket holds a little over 2 gallons.
includes a 15 foot clear hose for easy draining with built in pump.
Packaged well with easy to read and understand instructions.
Already installed rollers for easy moving.
Cons: Would like a little stronger pump.
Other Thoughts: I live within two miles of the Mississippi river so is very humid in the summer here. I have an older Kenmore with dials in the basement which works decent for its age. I started with this upstairs using the bucket. In two days on low with humidity set to 50% I had to empty the bucket 5 times. My air conditioner is always set to 73 as the wife has to stay cool. In the first 4 hours of operation she adjusted the AC up to 76 and she said it felt colder than it did now with the Friedrich's running at 76 than without it on 73. After two days I was planning on putting it down the basement but she talked me out of it. I emptied the Kenmore 3 times on low with humidity dial set in middle. With it sleek look and the quietness of the unit I don't think she will ever let me put it down the basement now. I have now set the hose up for draining so no more buckets. I plumbed it in to the dishwasher drain and I turned the humidity up to 55% to see if it made a huge difference in the way the AC unit cools. We now keep the AC on 75 so I am saving money there. I figure I will break even on the electric cost and my upstairs is much drier now. When I plumbed in the drain I had to go up about 2 inches after 5 foot then back down to the drain. I was worried it wouldn't be able to go up that slight rise but it did. My idea spot would of took it up about 8 inches but it wouldn't push the water up that incline. If I tried that with my Kenmore even by an inch the water wouldn't drain. I am impressed by this humidifier. When you pick it up it is heavy and that tells you a lot about the build quality. This brand name wasn't known to me but now I see how it is built and works I would feel comfortable buying anything with Friedrich on it period. It is actually quieter than my name brand Kenmore. All I have to say is if this company doesn't take over the market in a short time I would be very surprised.
I didn't have any reason to call support so I cant tell you if it is good or bad but the quality speaks for itself.
Pros: Plenty of connectors 1- 24 pin, 2 x 4+4 pins for cpu connector or epas. 4 x 6+2 for pcie with 2 6 pin also and 10 stat power connectors and 5, 4 pin connectors and 1 floppy.
Cables are easy to twist the way you need them, Plenty long enough for any full size tower to route behind mother board so they can be hidden.
5 year warranty with a single 12 volt rail.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: This PSU is semi modular the cables that come connected to it are the 24 pin mother board connector and 2x4 pin CPU connectors and 2 of the 6 plus 2 pins for vga cards. All other you add if needed. I have a HAF 932 and it fit great in it and all cables were long enough to go behind mother board so they don't interfere with airflow. Is a little bit louder than my last Silverstone PSU but that just means it is keeping it cool. 70 amps on the 12 volt rail means it will power any crossfire or sli video set up. This is my first EVGA product i have ever bought but got it on shell shocker with a rebate which made it a no brainer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB
Pros: Small form factor
A key ring you will need so you don't lose it.
28.8 Gigs useable.
Cons: The best write speed I got was twenty megabytes constant. It would start at 24MBs and go down till it reached 20. Read was only maxed at 152MBs. This is not USB 3 speeds. To me USB 3.0 speeds are in the high 30MB range to 60Mb.
Other Thoughts: I have other corsair USB 3 drives I tested this against and all other USB 3 drives outperformed it. I don't know if they changed the memory in them or not. All my others maxed in the 40's with a constant speed of 39.7 at the lowest. The speed I got from this one is on par with a few of my best USB 2.0 drives in a USB 3.0 port. I have no less than 10 USB 2.0 drives and 5 USB 3.0 drives this was the slowest among the USB 3.0 It was the fastest among the USB 2.0 drives. For the price you can do a lot better in speed even at half this price I wouldn't consider this a deal. I tried to find out if they changed memory in this from the normal ones they put out and I could not find the information I was looking for. So with all things considered get a real USB 3.0 speed drive.READ FULL REVIEW
