CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap for wattage, modular, Corsair has a good PSU reputation. No coil whine on mine. Appeared brand new, not a scratch on it, no dust.

Cons: Fan goes from 0 to 100 at moderate to high loads. Eventually spins down but is still loud. My test was with one 290, three hours of gaming, no headphones, case ~4 feet away.

Other Thoughts: I've never been sensitive to fan noise but I don't like how Corsair rigged this fan. It's off at low load but moderate to high loads it spins up way more than necessary. There is no switch to control the fan. Add one of those and this would be a great PS. As it stands, I haven't decided if it's going back yet.

Acer Laptop Aspire E1-530-4416 Intel Pentium 2117U (1.80GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Ivy Bridge Pentium, slim profile, great specs for $280 on a full-sized laptop in April 2014. At this price you're usually stuck with a Celeron or AMD E1 garbage. Keyboard is good, not great. Easy access (one screw) to the HDD and RAM.

Cons: No optical drive, slightly flimsy case but hard to complain for the price. Standard, slow 5400 rpm hard drive. 4-cell battery but keep in mind this is a low-power unit (2117U is rated at 17W TDP). Decent amount of crapware to uninstall.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand the other negative reviews for this laptop (assuming it works). It's a cheap $280 Acer that will do what most people need: internet/email, skype and office. The Pentium 2117U is on par with the older Core 2 Duo mobile Penryn chips (at half the power/TDP) which is still fast enough for the above mentioned items (Windows 8 score of 5.4). Swapped out the slow hard drive for an SSD as everyone should do. This makes a world of difference. First boot the computer and make backup recovery disks then swap out the HDD. Contrary to another reviewer, my laptop came with 2 RAM slots, one of course had the 4GB of RAM in it and the other was empty but had the receiving slot fully intact (i.e. not just solder points). My unit was made in November of 2013. The UEFI BIOS will NOT prevent you from installing another OS. You have the option to revert the BIOS back to Legacy mode (press F2 on startup to enter BIOS). Read the manual!

TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, high-output antennas.

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: Using latest stock firmware. Setup this router as a range extender, wired to my LAN to cover dead spots in my WiFi. Easy to setup this way (google it) and have had zero problems. No interference using channels on the opposite end of the spectrum (1 and 11 for example). No drops, haven't had to touch it since I set it up months ago. Note this router has had 8 revisions and the first 7 have been known to work with DD-WRT. You should still be able to use it on this one however I can't personally confirm this.
