This review is from: ProHT by Inland 5410 37"-70" Tilt TV Wall Mount LED & LCD HDTV Up to VESA 600x400 Max Load 90 lbs with 6ft HDMI Cable and Bubble Level for Samsung, Vizio, Sony, Panasonic, LG and Toshiba TV
Pros: -Slim profile! Don't get confused my different product descriptions, this thing has 1" (25mm) profile!
-Durable one piece backplate construction
-Simple installation (except of the securing screws)
-Very wide to accommodate various mounting positions (missing description..the most outer holes are 24" apart, so you know)
-Actually tilts quite more than expected from such a slim profile
-Price! I don't even want to tell you how cheap I got this with a promo offer.
Cons: -Securing screws on the bottom (you'll need about a foot long or longer screwdriver to reach those from the bottom)
-Packaging/shipping method (comes in manufacturer box, barely taped, one side was almost torn open) Wish they'd at least put a couple more pieces of tape on this box.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'd give this bracket 4 eggs, but for the price and comparing to more expensive bracket I returned (larger profile, less sturdy and more expensive), this is a winner and I give it 5 eggs for that. If you're looking for slim profile of 1" off the wall and still want the option to tilt your tv, this is a good choice.
I have a 65" 4k TV weighting 55 lbs hanging on this and it's very solid unlike some other brackets I've tried. I think even if you get it for the regular price it's still a solid buy.
Pros: Cools very good, very quiet
Cons: None for me
Other Thoughts: I've already reviewed this cooler about 2 weeks ago with some details about my experience, which is still awesome.
Thought I'd write again and point this out to some users, that think the fan might be on a louder side while idle. Don't forget to go into you BIOS and set CPU Fan up for Automatic control. On my ASRock Z77 I can adjust speed level for auto as well, which I put towards the high end. I'm a bit frugal with unnecessary noises and I thought the fan ran quiet on full, oh boy, this thing is silent while idle. Now all I hear is my TT 120mm fan in front of the case (Replacing it with what I hope is gonna be super silent Cougar fan this week).
Hope this helps someone as I myself forgot to set that up.
Pros: Cools awesome and is surprisingly very quiet, can't hear the pump at all and only minor sound of air moving from the fan @ idle. The fan does speed up when CPU is under load but still barely noticeable to me. Comes with everything needed for a fairly easy installation.
Cons: The tubes are a bit on a stiff side.
Other Thoughts: This replaced my 6 year old Zalman 92mm heatsink, which cooled very well (could be one of the best air cooled heatsinks). But the fan ran full speed on it, which made it pretty loud. I ran some stress tests with AIDA64 on my old air HS and of course on this bad boy right after I got it in. The idle temps were the same (which I expected, since they were so low anyways) but the difference came under load. Not only this cooler lowered under load temps of the CPU by 10C, but it actually made everything else run a bit cooler, specifically GPU and motherboard. I thought it would make other things run warmer, since now there isn't an extra fan blowing air around, but in reality removal of an extra obstacle where the air comes through and a big warm heatsink that's radiating heat helped the temps. Note that I do have a very well ventilated case.
There's a few different variations in which way you can install the radiator and fan. I've installed it with just the fan it comes with, on the back of the case, with radiator against the case and the fan exhausting air out through it and it works great. You might get a couple degrees cooler by installing it as intake, but I've decided the temps are so awesome already that I didn't really want that extra heat blowing into the case.
