12V 8AH SLA Battery replaces UB1280 NP8.5-12 PS-1280 GP1280 12V BP8-12 - 2PK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Good but don't last 05/17/2015

This review is from: 12V 8AH SLA Battery replaces UB1280 NP8.5-12 PS-1280 GP1280 12V BP8-12 - 2PK

Pros: Fit my Cyberpower 1285avr, have been good and price was right.

Cons: Got this pair on 7/13/2013 and today 05/17/2015 I got a power outage. I thought my computer was safe but it shut down with the power. I opened the UPS and one of the battery was cracked open and white powder was coming out. It could have been for month but who knows? It seems like this batteries last as long as their warranty. The other battery is fine and still provide 12v.

Other Thoughts: It's unfortunate to have a battery which is supposed to be a none spill battery to crack open the casing like this. These may be good for a well ventilated place but inside a UPS it will degrade and may explode due to the heat so be aware of this.

I gave 2 stars, one for each year of service. Battery should last 3 to 5 years.

TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have 6 of them set in RAID5 using a LSI 9260-8i. They replace 3*1.5TB Seagate which were 5 years old and started to click badly. So far I'm very pleased with performances, getting 440MB/s with peak at 660MB/s. I'm using them to store my Steam games. So far so good. The drives arrived very well packed in a box and no DOA, starting to spin right away. Either you get a lot of them for speed and quick recovery or you get a few bigger drives more expensive with low recovery in a RAID, I picked the first option ;o)

Cons: No cons beside 1TB should range around $40 or less when you compare with Seagate 8TB found at $249...

Other Thoughts: I may add 2 more down the road, one to extend my 4.7TB RAID 5 to 5.xTB and another one as a spare. For now I'm ok but I'm hopping the price will go lower as bigger capacity are coming out.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case with white LED Fans ATX Power Supply (not included)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Light weight, fast shipping from Newegg, nice looking case, came with three fans pre-installed, aggressive design.

Cons: Feels really fragile, price after rebates is still too much for this type of quality, no room for cable management, feet are uneven making the case wiggling, top fan are too close to be mounted without touching the motherboard, the 4 pins CPU hole is too small (top left) and it is covered with the motherboard (really?), also you can't pass through the hole a 8 PIns if your motherboard requires it, stand offs are pre-installed (was looking for them), fans are white (blue on the picture). side panel was scratched and paint was off, thumb screws were hard to remove without a screwdriver, you need a modular PSU or good luck to route your cables and close the case.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed as I was relying on good reviews for this case but it is really falling short of my expectations. Nonetheless, this case holds a GTX 680, AM3 motherboard and Phenom II X6 CPU with stock cooler as you have to choose between blow hole fans or large heat-sink, 4 hard drives and a semi-modular PSU. If you have a lot more to put in, check for another case with room for cable management and more room globally.
