SILVERSTONE ST85F-P 850W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Pretty good wattage per buck ratio
- Fully modular
- Fairly quiet operation

Cons: - Barely lasted 6 months
- 80+ Silver certification means nothing apparently

Other Thoughts: I bought this PSU in June and had been using it in my rig for around 6 months. During the last 2 months of its life, it was ridiculously stubborn and wouldn't even turn on without me having to open up my rig, disconnect and reconnect the power plugs. The whole experience made me dread turning on my PC. During the last 2 weeks of its' life, it would randomly shut off on me mid game/homework you name the task, and it would shut off while I was doing it. Very frustrating and I overall a terrible experience. I would not buy another power supply from Silverstone while I still draw breath. Do yourself a favor and get the Corsair RM750 or 1000 instead.

Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 
 High-power 2.1 PC Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Good while it lasted 11/27/2012

This review is from: Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-power 2.1 PC Speaker System

Pros: Lots of audio input options. The controller is nice and easy to use. The sub woofer really kicks out the bass and the satellites had clear highs and mids. Aesthetically ras.

Cons: Both satellites are now blown within 2 months of ownership

Other Thoughts: I live in a dorm and i used these speakers every day. I always powered them down when they weren't in use and never went more than half way through the "light blue" section on the controller in both the volume and bass menu. In addition to that, my PC's volume never exceeded 75%.

My room mate used them as well but I can't speak for how gingerly he used them (or didn't use them for that matter) Even if my room mate is a speakers worst nightmare and he played music way too loud, Corsair advertises these speakers as being super durable saying that "You’ll enjoy pristine audio that’s clean and tight, even when pushed to the limits."

Within 3 weeks, white noise was coming out of the right satellite speaker on specific mid-range frequencies but by 5 weeks time, both satellites were producing an unbearable amount of white noise. Any and every frequency was accompanied by some static. I now have to use the integrated speakers in my ASUS monitor, and we all know integrated speakers are not something to be desired.

The RMA process with Corsair is painful and slow and my request has still not been processed (sent request ~2 weeks ago) On top of that I have to pay for shipping both ways to return the satellites >:O I wouldn't be so upset if it wasn't for the fact that these speakers cost a pretty penny at $200 when I purchased them. The SP-2500 is supposed to be the creme of crop when it comes to 2.1 gaming speakers, some durability and longevity would be nice.

If i had to do it over again, I wouldn't get these I'd get Logitech's Z623 and save a few bucks. Or go all out and pick up Logitech's Z906's. Reguardless, would not purchase these again. Newegg gives it the Hardware Heaven award, I give it the Hardware Hell reward.

Logitech K400 2.4GHz Wireless Touch Keyboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Brilliant idea and execution. 06/19/2012

This review is from: Logitech K400 2.4GHz Wireless Touch Keyboard

Pros: Weight
- It's just over a pound. I think it's the perfect weight for the size of the product, feel's like you are holding a glorious control center on your lap. That's because you are.

OS Support
- Install in Win7 was a breeze. I could use it right away on default drivers as Win7 automatically installed the latest drivers.
- I was surprised to find out that this key board is very Linux friendly. The keyboard and track pad (along with its multi-touch features) worked right away on boot, no questions asked.
-I tried it on my net book running BackTrack<<5 and my Raspberry Pi running Debian Squeeze, the k400 worked flawlessly on both.

HTPC Gem
- Brilliantly perfect idea. It is soo convenient to by able to have a computers controls in a solid unit, keyboard and track pad.
- Its intended purpose is to control your laptop with a sudo-laptop setup when your laptop is tethered the TV. It is soo good at doing that. I mean it's freaking awesome.
Cost
- Worth every penny.

Cons: Design
- The little lines on the track pad are kind of silly but they're nothing to knock an egg off about.
- Feels a little too plastic-y, but I've had worse and again, it's not that bad.

Other Thoughts: I also use it when my tower is hooked up to my HDTV for applications less intense then gaming. Like web browsing, media play etc...
