5 out of 5 eggs Pretty nice backpack 06/13/2014

This review is from: Swissgear  IBEX 17" GA-7316-06F00  Laptop Computer Backpack

Pros: Great division of pockets. The small "sunglasses" pocket is particularly handy for storing wireless mice, headphones, and other accessories. That small pocket alone holds my earbud case, two wireless mice, my Nexus 4 phone, and a few thumb drives.

Durable construction lets me carry two laptops in the main compartment without any fear of broken handles or the bottom giving out.

Seems to be water resistant. Not proof by any means, but does a decent job keeping moisture out of the interior spaces.

Straps are comfortable even with weight in the backpack.

Cons: There are two "handles" on top. One is a fabric material, the other has a rubbery/plastic piece that moves back and forth over a sheathed cable. This second handle seems much more secure to lift the backpack by, and I did so many times. After about a year of ownership, the rubbery plastic cracked.
Over the course of several months, that piece split into two parts. The edges are NOT sharp, but it is uncomfortable to hold for more than a minute or two.
The underlying cable is untouched and holding up great. I have no fear of it breaking completely.

The logos are annoying to me.

Beyond those two minor issues, the pack is great.

Other Thoughts: Purchased Jan 2011. Used daily for three years hauling a 17 inch Asus laptop and college textbooks. Plenty of abuse from me.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7950 100352VXSR 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Runs Skyrim on max with 140+ mods, including many high-def texture enhancers, replacement shaders, improved lighting, etc.

No overheating and quiet. No complains.

Cons: Free games are annoying. I feel like I had to pay extra for the card to cover these, even though I only played one of them.

Other Thoughts: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3 GB. Purchased in June '13. I don't overclock.

5 out of 5 eggs No Problems 06/13/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Has worked perfectly. Quiet and no heat problems, even in my sometimes 80 F apartment.

Cons: Took me awhile to install, but this was probably because I haven't put a CPU fan on in years.

Other Thoughts: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

Got it June '13. Put it on a Haswell i5 and Asus Z87-A mobo. I don't overclock.
