This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)
Pros: Very durable, I've let several people fly it and they all crashed it several times, the propellers fold in to help absorb blows. They work very well and the things has great lift. Not as hard to control as some might make it out to be. The 3.5 channel works great compared to some older 2chs.
It charges via USB which it includes a small cable for, and if any of the parts are somehow damaged, which takes quite a bit of work as I've tested, you can just order them online for relatively cheap. Or you can just buy another one. I paid $10 total after everything.
Cons: 6 AA-batteries for the Controller. The listing says flight time is 7-10 minutes. However I checked other listings and I see the flight times listed at 5-7 minutes. I didn't expect half an hour out of it but sometimes it feels like you're just getting a good hang of it when it starts to die. Maybe buy 6 of them so you can just charge them all over and over?? But seriously for the price these few cons are hardly killers.
Other Thoughts: If you're at all interested in it. You pretty much have nothing to lose. I intend to buy a larger one in the long run but this was just pre-emptive so I could try it out. It was a lot of fun. Worth every dollar. My next investment is the Parrot AR 2.0 Drone. Thanks to trying this out.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply
Pros: It worked. For a solid 3 weeks or so.
Cons: It died. After a solid 3 weeks or so.
+3.3V@38A, +5V@40A, +12V@25A
?????? What else do I need to say about a "575W" IT TECHNICALLY ALL ADDS UP TO 575W!!!
Other Thoughts: Basically, let me put it this way. If you LIKE whoever you're buying this power supply for, I'd reconsider. If you don't care about them and or will never see them again. This might be the PSU for you.
Side note: In all defense of this product, no one who buys it seriously thinks it'll handle 575W. I bought it purely because it was the cheapest dual-PCI-E for my 6870 at the time. I had no expectations it would last and didn't even RMA it when it died in less than a month. I really just wanted something temporary at the time and yeah. That is what I got. Soon as it died, swapped it out for an Antec 550W 80plus bronze. No issues since.
