BitFenix Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-P12025KK-RP 120mm PWM Case Fan
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Phenominal 03/07/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-P12025KK-RP 120mm PWM Case Fan

Pros: Quiet, min RPM is ~570 at 12V with PWM. No ticking or weirdness, just works. Dead silent, especially at idle. Keeps my 3570K @4.2GHz with CNPS10X extreme at 75C...at <700RPM!!!

There's not much secret sauce in fans, if it's spinning fast it's loud. The non-pwm version is great too, but PWM lets you control case fans with the CPU temp.

Cons: Hard to find? Included screws aren't self-tapping so it's hard to screw them in the first time. A noise-reducing adapter could have been included, but with PWM on they're slow already.

Other Thoughts: A great blend of silence, performance, aesthetics, and value. Includes optional rubber mounts for super quick mounting. Cord is ~14", and all black. If I was decking out a case with 120mm or 140mm fans, Spectre Pros are a great, and cheap!

Kingston FCR-MLG3 USB 3.0 Support SD/SDHC/SDXC, microSD/SDHC/SDXC and MSPD Card Reader Black/Blue
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Takes SD and microSD cards natively. You can use microSD to SD adapters, but you don't have to. Both cards are mounted in OS at the same time, but you can only boot from the SD slot.

USB3.0 isn't a massive speed boost, but when reading from both cards the bandwidth can help. Works in Windows, Linux, and on my TV. Probably compatible with OSX and other stuff.

Cons: Some people will want CompactFlash. I'm not one of them, but CF seems to be the only other card in use today.

Other Thoughts: Why spend more for an internal card reader, when you can get the cards you USE in a pocketable device?

I have a handful of 2GB microSD cards from tablets and whatnot. I've loaded various bootable utilities to them, so I have a spindle of CDs in my pocket.

Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard

5 out of 5 eggs HTPC dream come true 01/03/2014

This review is from: Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard

Pros: Integrated trackpad is the only viable solution I've found for controlling a PC from the couch. A teeny wireless mouse is easy to lose, and doesn't work well on fabric. This guy sits on your lap, and gives you the precision you'd get from a decent laptop pad/kb.

Small and lightweight. Runs on 2xAA batteries(included). No drivers or software needed (for Windows, haven't tried OSX or Linux).

Trackpad and keyboard work fine, no unusual numlock functions to annoy you. It works exactly as expected.

Cons: Kinda flimbsy. Wouldn't break unless you tried, but if you're used to mechanical keyboards with steel plates in them, this will be a change. Still, I'd rather this approach then have the extra weight on my lap.

Other Thoughts: The only option for HTPC, or any couch-based PC. Works fine for desktops without room for a mouse as well.
