Pros: 80+ Gold
Cons: Newegg's website falsely advertised this product as having a 5-year warranty on parts and labor. Upon delivery, the front panel of the box says that the product has only a 3-year warranty. I double-checked Newegg's product description, and the product description has changed since I ordered the PSU two days ago -- A) now the 5-year warranty statement is no longer a part of the description's header, and no warranty length is mentioned there; B) the Quick Info box continues to falsely list the product as having a 5-year warranty; the Specifications > Features page now lists the product as having a 3-year warranty.
I am not at all happy that I paid for a device that was advertised with a 5-year warranty, and that I received a device that actually has a 3-year warranty. I feel like I'm the victim of fraud.
This review is from: Cooler Master V6 GT - CPU Cooler with Dual 120 mm PWM Fans and 6 Heatpipes
Pros: Good cooling.
Moved Lots of Air WHEN THE FANS WORKED.
Cons: Fans failed under warranty.
Warranty Support is Non-Existent
Claim approved but parts never shipped.
Follow-up emails repeatedly get ignored.
Product is non-functional and sits on a shelf.
Had to go back to the OEM CPU cooler.
Other Thoughts: Unit failed in warranty period with a seized fan. Cooler Master approved the request for replacement parts but has never sent them out. They have been dragging their feet for over a month and still hasn't sent out a replacement fan. Parts Order status says that the claim was approved over a month ago, but they've never bothered to send out the fan. My follow-up emails keep getting ignored. Warranty support from this company is non-existent. Don't waste your time or your money. AVOID.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Syma Mini Chinook Cargo Transport 3CH RC Gyro Helicopter(S026)
Pros: * Hovers well in mid air.
* Easy to manuver.
* Tolerates crashes without damage
Cons: * Balance Bar was BENT during assembly. Out of the box helo would not hover. Had to re-bend the balance bar, which is flimsy and may snap.
* IR remote loses comm link if line of sight is broken.
* Re-negotiating comm link takes several seconds. Enough time to crash.
* Throttle inputs are coarse and lack fine control at low end; landings are always hard.
* Very short battery life; will only climb for a couple of minutes, then constantly loses altitude. Limited useful flight time.
* USAF insignia has been altered to replace the USA BLUE STAR with a RED COMMUNIST STAR. That's *NOT* what is shown in the photos.
* Decals are applied upside-down by a careless slave labor.
* "DANGER" decal is misspelled as "DANCER"
* Shoddy assembly -- Looks like a Factory Second
Other Thoughts: I paid $20 for this toy, and it's fun, but it's really not even worth $5. It's highly overpriced. The amount of fun you'll get is limited by short flight times followed by a painfully long recharge interval. If you spend an entire evening charging the batteries, you might get 15 minutes of total flight time.
If I had known that the USAF decals would be replaced with RED COMMUNIST decals then I never would have bought the helo. I don't want a RED COMMUNIST helo. One of the Rotors' balance bars was bent during assembly, and the helo would not hover properly until the plastic bar was bent bent into position. The bar feels like it's going to snap when you bend it. Be careful.
Overall, this toy is overpriced, with poor workmanship and Surprise! You get Red Communist markings. Would not buy it again. Would buy something else.
