This review is from: Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model KVR1333D3S9/4G
Pros: Quality looks great, fitment was good, and it has been working just fine for 3 months now. Price point is great given the benefits received from adding the extra memory.
Other Thoughts: Purchased to fit into a Samsung NP350 Ultrabook. The extra 4Gb of RAM made a great improvement.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 12V 5A Universal Power Supply with Cigar Adapter Plug
Pros: Probably a good 5A 12V DC PSU
Cons: Seriously! - Telling end consumers to cut-off the adaptor from the cord! - That is just crazy. How long do you think it will be before someone gets one of these, plugs it in and tries to cut the end of with it live! Best outcome is; it shorts the PSU and it dies, worst outcome; electrical shock, burns, etc.
Other Thoughts: Then again anyone foolish enough to try and cut the end off a live device (even if instructed to do so) will probably deserves to be shocked. However I don’t think that defense would stand up well in court. LOLREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor
Pros: Has been reliable and very acurate. Easy to use and sturdy construction. Good value for money.
Really makes you think twice about what devices you leave plugged in / switched on! (Thought my PC was bad pulling a constant 350Watts but who would have guessed - My old 9ft pre-lit christmas tree draws 750W of power - Ouch!)
Cons: Initial reading should be Watts or VA instead of Volts.
Could do with a backlight display and buttons - would be especially usefull when plugging in to a dark / hard to reach outlet (eg in builtin cabinets / under desks / etc.
Other Thoughts: A few reviews have mentioned the Amps / Volts / Watts readings did not seem to be aligned and were concerned with acuracy. The reason for this is most likely to do with the PowerFactor (PF) of the device(s) being measured. Devices with high inductance (eg motors) have a negative PF and will cause the Watts to be disporportionatly higher then Volts x Amps. Similarly, devices with high capacitance will cause the Watts to be less then Volts x Amps. Look up a Wiki for "Powerfactor" for further info.READ FULL REVIEW
