5 out of 5 eggs A Simple Power Strip 03/22/2016

This review is from: Rosewill RHEC-16BK6 3 Outlets Power Strip with 6 Feet cord

Pros: Most of the series mode surge eliminators that I use only have 2-outlets and this expands the available outlets to 4 (more than enough for my daughters room). I did not want a long AC power cord either.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Last year I was using MOV based surge protectors which are inherently flawed because they only divert the surge based on a voltage threshold and once they do, the house wiring is required to be a low impedance return path at surge frequencies which it often is not. At 60 Hz it's not a problem but even at 180 Hz it can be challenging. Surge frequencies are often from 3,000 Hz to 350+ MHz and when the surge is diverted it's now on both the Neutral and Ground wires in a 3-prong outlet and will seek an alternate path often in the very electronics we are trying to protect or elsewhere on the same circuit.

Series mode filters work by slowing the surge down in real time, storing the energy in capacitor banks and safely bleeding it a few volts at a time onto the Neutral. They are not cheap, but buying a 2 outlet version (new or used) and plugging an outlet strip into them or an MOV surge protector to expand the number of outlets is a good way go to.

I purchased this from Rosewill on the popular auction site since the deal was better.

5 out of 5 eggs Pefect for tight spaces 02/25/2016

This review is from: Noctua NH-L12 120mm & 92mm SSO Bearing PWM Fans CPU Cooler

Pros: I used this in a 17 year old In-Win A500 mid-tower computer case with the top fan removed. It fit nicely and is very quiet on an AMD triple core Athlon CPU.

Cons: None
