This review is from: ENERMAX MAGMA UCMAA12A 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Definitely moves a lot of air
Cons: Either loud or defective. Installed two of these as intake on a case side panel on the medium CFM setting and immediately heard a high pitch whining from the fans. Tried low and it was quieter but still annoying and on high it was unbearable. When covered with a dust filter the whining was quieter, likely due to the resistance causing a drop in fan speed. Both fans were making the whine which makes me wonder if was bad luck with two or that these fans are just louder than advertised.
Submitted RMA with Newegg even though the shipping will eat a big chunk of the cost.
Other Thoughts: Noise is my top priority so I planned to run these on the "Ultra Silent" setting but was very disappointed with the noise. If high CFM is your only goal then these might be a fair choice for a rig tucked in a closet or something similar.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SIIG JU-NE0111-S1 USB 2.0 Gigabit Ethernet
Pros: I bought this to speed up cloning a laptop that only had a 100Mb NIC. Yes, it's limited by USB 2.0 but I knew that going in and it's definitely faster than 100Mbit. Cheap. Worked with Clonezilla.
Cons: Not really any worth mentioning. USB 3.0 would be faster but it's clearly marked as 2.0 and therefore costs less.READ FULL REVIEW
