Pros: Although not using it as a surveillance drive, I'm extremely happy I was able to pop this drive into my existing system and giving it a drive later through disk manager. After this 10 second process, be ready to just fill this drive up with all your data, but you'll most likely be disappointed that it's so big you'll take a while to even put 2-3TB of movies and other files in this.
It's rated for lots of use 24/7, so I don't have a doubt that I'll be fine using it much more sporadically than what it's rated for and it'll outlive the warranty many times over.
Don't be alarmed if it gets a bit hot to the touch when you're transferring large files, it's normal and that goes away when the data is done being passed on to the drive.
Even with my case open, I couldn't hear a single thing coming from the drive so it's as quiet as SSDs without moving parts. I'd honestly expect no noise complaints if you'll have this enclosed.
Cons: As another user added, this doesn't include the free data recovery service from other high-end enterprise drives, but not something I could knock an egg off for.
Other Thoughts: You will need a SATA data cable to plug this into your system, whether it's a PC rig or a security system without a hot-swap mechanism where you can just throw the drive in without any cables.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP Officejet 200 ISO: On AC: Up to 10 ppm, On Battery: Up to 9 ppm Draft: On AC: Up to 20 ppm, On Battery: Up to 18 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality Wi-Fi Thermal Inkjet Color Printer
Pros: Have to add the disclaimer that if the 250 version of this printer didn't exist, this would be given a full 5 egg review, but it is just not so.
Prints in extreme high quality even on the standard setting, was surprised at how fast and clear the text was on paper. My all-in-one does not hold a candle for this.
The battery will last quite a bit, but I don't recommend printing more than 30-50 pages at a time, since the battery does get a bit hot after a while (even in A/C).
Connectivity is a breeze, instructions were left in the box the first go-around and my wife had no issue connecting it to our wi-fi network and installing the e-print app for printing from her phone.
Extremely tiny, wish I could keep it as the default in my house due to size but it just can't happen due to the lack of features my all-in-one has. For traveling (if you know only printing is what you must do) then this is perfect and fits easily in most crevices in any car (including the bags behind the seats).
Battery charge from about 20% to 100% ends up being about an hour, so it's not horrible. It's rechargeable, of course, and everything feels premium.
When on the road, you can also directly and wirelessly connect to your laptop or another device (with proper know-how) and print without ever connecting to the internet on the printer itself.
Good purchase, but not the best for around the same money. If you have slightly more room and you need a travel-printer (that has slightly more features, look at the 250.
Cons: This model could be skipped, the 250 is what's at this price range and also has scanning/copying.
Other Thoughts: Missing copying/scanning functionality.
I really wish it was more feature-packed. It's a basic printer that does an excellent job at its only task, but save yourself the hassle if you scan/copy and get its bigger brother.
This review is from: Rosewill TOKAMAK 1200W Full-Modular Power Supply (80 PLUS TITANIUM Certified)
Pros: Fully modular, as is expected from a 1200W 80-plus titanium efficient PSU. The cables that come with the unit are much easier to manage than 2-3 other companies that use sleeved-cables on higher end unit, this is a big plus for tighter cases with little to no space apart from fitting a unit of this magnitude.
I have had 2 high-end PSUs start whining from day one before, this wasn't the case and shows that the OEM followed stricter guidelines for internal components. I did not open up the unit but I find it unnecessary as I'm sure review websites with very expensive equipment will be doing this shortly.
I do not have the equipment that costs tens of thousands of dollars to test the PSU in hot/cold environments which would put it through its paces, and I find that unrealistic testing, so note that for normal use with a hexacore intel CPU of the latest generation and 2 Pascal cards this PSU has no issues with.
Packaging is quite fancy, but I honestly would've liked a longer warranty period, I can't get over the fact that this only has a 5 year warranty, the length that other vendors give their low-end units.
Active protection is a big feature, but also what's expected of a unit at this price point and wattage.
Can comfortably used up to 4 video cards that take 2x 8 pin connectors each, so no worries in that department for those you that might still be using this for mining (as ineffective as that is now).
In short, can't go wrong with it but beware of the shorter warranty period.
Cons: Only a 5 year warranty? Is there no faith on the quality of the unit?READ FULL REVIEW
