Pros: Running somewhat more efficiently. My power draw during memtest has dropped from 212 watts with my Antec PS to 195 watts with the FSP, desktop and video stress tests showed similar improvements.
Cons: Too many connectors makes it hard to get it all in the case. Looks like a cheap plastic toy made for idiot boys. It took forever to get here!
Other Thoughts: I guess the reason they made it look like this and spent way too much on sleek packaging is that they will do whatever it takes to make money. I really just needed a more efficient PS. If newegg customers demanded function over form; the prices would drop and actual quality would increase. Trying to make it do everything for everybody means it won't do anything outstanding. FSP succeeds in mediocrity -- yawn.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IOGEAR GFR204SD 10-in-1 USB 2.0 SD/MicroSD/MMC Card Reader/Writer (Green/Gray)
Pros: It is green
Cons: Won't work in my car. Iogears FAQ's on the device are completely blank/empty, their online chat was not manned when I am awake.
Other Thoughts: I am not new to this; I googled my noodle trying to figure it out. I tried everything. It works with my 2gig SD and my32 gig MicroSD, but not in my car. It reads and writes from my workstation (at home) and my laptop at work, it plays data formatted by my phone on my computer and vice versa, my phone and camera both work as USB drives in my car as well as the dollar store USB stick I bought just to make sure. Everything works in my car stereo USB port except this iogear reader/writer. If I could use it anywhere else I'd give it more stars, if there was ANY help from IOgear at all I'd give it 2 more stars. But, I didn't buy this for my laptop or workstation, I got it for my car -- it just can't be seen by my prius! I'm tired of looking to solve this problem brought on by a manufacturer releasing a product before they even know if it will work. Congratulations -- 1 star.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Desktop 400 5MH-00001 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard
Pros: I now have another backup K & M.
Cons: They are unusable, mouse is lighter than paper, wire is stiff, if you remove your hand from the mouse the wire pushes the mouse forward or pulls it off the desk. I keep loosing my "focus" on form fields. I have no real problem with the keyboards operation -- it just makes me feel dirty (like being violated) to have that MS logo on my desk.
Other Thoughts: I replaced this set (only days later) with a logitech wireless and I am very happy with them.READ FULL REVIEW
