This review is from: CyberPower Smart App Sinewave Sinewave PR750LCD 750 VA 525W 6 Outlets Mini-tower UPS
Pros: The sine output is as advertised and is very good. I have a device to measure the output on a scope. The AC output is a good sine wave when charging and during pass thru (AC in). Cool display showing power usage.
Cons: Two of the last three units I purchased were broken on arrival. One had missing pixels on the display that were annoying but worked. One would appear to turn on but never provide power to the outlets. This appears to be a safety startup mode to keep from running the battery down. I own several other CyberPower products and am aware of this feature. After charging for days and recycling it still would not turn on the outlet power. Appears stuck in safe mode.
The common mode, and normal mode noise on this device is high. I have several low impedance isolation transformers that I could place on the AC outlets and run my computers and devices thru the isolation transformer. The noise should be in the mV range and was in the V range coming from the CyperPower. Using the isolation transformer returned the noise levels back to the mV range.
I do not like the user interface of the buttons and display. It is usable but not enjoyable.
Other Thoughts: CyberPower appears to have solved one of the major issues with UPS power and that is a clean Sine Wave. However the noise produced can still produce hard to trace issues with low voltage electronics. A low impedance isolation transformer can solve those issues but cost $400-600 more and are another piece of equipment to manage.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDQ77MK LGA 1155 Intel Q77 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board works great. Everything just worked with no tricks needed to get the install working. Installed one with Win8 64 pro. Other with Windows Server. This board has serial header that I needed for some old hardware that does not like USB to serial converters.
Good choice of options to cover a lot of uses with no issues...
32 GB 1600 Crucial memory with no issues.
Intel 335 drives
No over clock
Windows Experience Index
8, 8, 6.4, 6.4, 8.1
Other Thoughts: I hope Intel copies this board with the next tick of the I7 chip.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HyperX MAX 3.0 128GB External USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SHX100U3/128G
Pros: An SSD hooked up to the USB3 port.
Average write speed is about 130 MB / Sec.
Small drive that can fit in your pocket.
Low power...No power cord, just USB cable.
Rugged as in throw against the wall or drive over it with a truck.
No drivers to install, just plug it in.
Other Thoughts: I use this drive and a larger 1.5 TB USB3 drive and then put a SSD in the laptop and live is good.
Great way to keep company assets encrypted and on your person to lesson chance of theft or loss.
