Pros: I recently finished a HTPC build with this power supply, and I love it.
- super quiet
- little features like HeatGuard are cool add-ons
- very nice construction from what I can tell on the outside
- nice ribbon cables, with plenty of length (not ideal for HTPC, but not terrible since they're flat)
- 80 Plus Gold
Cons: - MSRP is crazy on these units, I scored under $45, which made this thing a no brainer for what it is.
- not worth an egg, but my "CordGuard" didn't fit in the holes around the power socket; one was too small
Other Thoughts: To clarify a previous review, if I may. "...the modular plugs can very easily be put on backwards causing possible disaster"...that's pretty much impossible. They only fit into the power supply one way, and are clearly marked with arrows. Also not CPU and motherboard power are hardwired, but also the dual 6-pin PCI cable is also hardwired.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Spawn - 3500 DPI Optical Gaming Mouse with Durable Omron Microswitches
Pros: Let me first say that I like this mouse a lot. The size is perfect for medium-size hand claw-grips, with a nice softtouch style surface on the buttons. Once you find the right firmware update for your style (mainly having to do with lift), it can be dialed in nicely.
Cons: - Side, thumb buttons are quite cheap feeling, and don't depress well
- see other notes
Other Thoughts: The first one I bought ended up being a big letdown; after about 3 weeks the left click started sticking in the down position, making it impossible to do anything with and super frustrating in games, as it happened more and more frequently. So I RMA'd it, and got a new one a couple weeks later that hasn't given me any issues, but beware of that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I upgraded from an budget 18.5" Acer monitor, and boy is this thing awesome. Here's why:
1) This is the perfect size. 24" is not too big and not too small, both for gaming and video editing work. You don't have to move your head to see the whole screen, but it really fills your field of view.
2) Freakin' beautiful display. I had no dead pixels and with a few tweaks using the basic Windows calibration, I'm extremely satisfied with the colors and clarity. For under $150, I don't think it gets much better on a TN panel. And response time is fast.
3) Input options and built in monitor menu options are really good. Nothing to write home about, but it's what you need on a monitor like this.
4) It's BenQ.
Cons: I don't really have any. At this price point you don't usually expect to get tilt, height adjust, etc, so I don't call the lack thereof a con.
Other Thoughts: If this is your budget, get this monitor. If you have $200 to spend, there are other fantastic options, and BENQ makes several of those.READ FULL REVIEW
