Pros: Makes a reaaaallly quiet 400W power supply. Sleeved cables were an unfortunate trend that I'm glad to see the end of.
Cons: The unit I got from Newegg had coil whine and had to be returned. Seasonic support does not answer questions about their terms of service, and does not offer cross shipping or expedited shipping. It worked out in the end, but most of their competitors would have done better.
Other Thoughts: Newegg did a really horrible job of packing, which is why I involved Seasonic support at all. The retail box came in a 2nd larger box with at least 2" on either side to slam back and forth. The fan on the unit I returned ran rougher than the replacement from Seasonic. I don't think it's a coincidence.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CRU 8430-5000-0500 DataPort 3 Removable Hard Drive Enclosure
Pros: Inexpensive, very sturdy, brilliant design. Acceptable cooling performance for 7200 RPM drives in an air conditioned room. Doesn't subject the hard drive to repeated mating cycles and uses more durable connectors than regular SATA.
Cons: The fan is a droning 40x15mm from some unknown Chinese manufacture, but that comes with the territory on cheaper caddies. I've definitely gotten worse from other companies. You could probably make a good show of silencing it with a ~4k RPM 40x28mm.
Other Thoughts: CRU and Newegg do a horrible job marketing these things. It's very arguably the best product on the market. Don't make me read PDFs on the manufacture's web site and pull part numbers to figure that out.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer Imperator Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: Great ergonomics. Similar to Logitech 5 series mice but a little shorter and wider. LEDs can be turned off. Adjustable thumb buttons are a nice touch.
Cons: No sensitivity indicator light on the mouse, and Razer's driver software doesn't display it on screen most of the time. This is on Win7 with current AMD video drivers.
The thumb and sensitivity adjustment buttons feel ambiguous. Not a huge problem for me, but it doesn't inspire confidence.
MSRP is ridiculous. I got it on Shell Shocker, but would have taken my chances with another Logitech for retail.
Other Thoughts: For those with Resolution Envy, you're never going to use this thing much over 3000 DPI in Windows unless you like typing in sensitivity numbers < 1. It's nice to have the dynamic range to accommodate a variety of games comfortably, but nobody needs 6k DPI.READ FULL REVIEW
