CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It does everything it is supposed to. It is a Corsair, which is a solid brand. It has a decent warranty, to boot. What more is there to say?
Oh, and 80+ Bronze certified. I purchased this for $25, after MIR.

Cons: Not modular? But I knew that when I purchased it.
One of the screw holes did not line up perfectly on the computer case I was installing this in, so I was forced to use 3 screws to stabilize it. I think this is an issue with the case, as I had some trouble with the previous PSU, as well.

Other Thoughts: If you need a 500W PSU, and are on a budget, it is very hard to go wrong with this one. If you're limited on space, maybe opt for a modular power supply... but if you're in a Mid Tower sized case, you should be fine.

BARSKA LUCID VIEW 10x25 Compact Binoculars
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great value 12/01/2014

This review is from: BARSKA LUCID VIEW 10x25 Compact Binoculars

Pros: These are inexpensive, small-ish binoculars that are ideal for taking while out on a hike in the woods, or perhaps going to a sporting event. They focus easily, and have pretty decent magnification.

Barska is a good brand, and it is hard to go wrong with them.

Cons: My only complaint is that the magnification isn't variable, but really, it is a small issue. These work great and have exceeded my expectations for what I spent.

RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Immediately upon receiving this PSU, I was impressed by its packaging. Unlike other PSUs I have purchased in the past (from OCZ, Kingwin, and Corsair), this came in a sharp looking plastic tote, almost like a small tool box. There was a tray insert on the top to keep screws, velcro zip ties, and other such components. Everything was organized nice and neat inside, and I get a free tote to top it off!

The power supply has worked from the get go, and was pretty easy to install. I have a full sized case (Chaser A71) and the cables are long enough, but just barely. It runs quiet, and does what I need it to do. Great value.

Cons: No real cons, but will update if there are any. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Rubber "boot" that came for the side of PSU that fits against the case is a great idea. It helps reduce vibration, etc. However, it did not fit properly in my Chaser A71 case, or perhaps I couldn't figure out how to make it fit. It didn't seem to line up with the screw holes though. Not really a con, so I'm not docking an egg.
The manual that came with this PSU was pretty thin. Good thing my motherboard came with adequate instructions. I would have liked more specifics on the capacities and outputs of certain cables though.
