EVGA 220-P2-1200-X1 80 PLUS Platinum 1200 W 10 yr Warranty ECO Mode Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Continous Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Meets spec, and then some
Build quality
Very low noise (both audible and electrical)
10 year warranty (did I mention build quality?)

Cons: The obvious con is price, but this is a false impression as the cost is mitigated by value received in multiple ways.
Perhaps the stiffness of the cables, but again, they are properly-gauged and that means they're gonna be thick, so they are little stiffer than you might be used to. Deal with it, as you should for delivering this power.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much everything about this power supply is correct. From the cap-filtered cables (every single one of them!), to the Power cord (12 ga.), this unit is built correctly and you can actually see and measure the premium you pay for this supply. I've worked in avionics for a decade testing power supplies, and this is the best consumer PC power supply I have seen or used. I've measured mine in used and can attest that JohnnyGURU got it dead-on right.

CM Storm Havoc - High Performance 8200 DPI Laser Gaming Mouse with Extra Durable Omron Microswitches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Very good mouse, a nice alternative to Logitech for the money 04/09/2014

This review is from: CM Storm Havoc - High Performance 8200 DPI Laser Gaming Mouse with Extra Durable Omron Microswitches

Pros: - very precise
- Solid construction, braided cable, good materials
- Super-tweakable
- on-board profile storage
- Uber-smooth glide on mousepads
- Driver software is slick and no conflicts so far
- LED lighting bling!

Cons: - Needs the driver software installed to work well, otherwise has momentary hangs
- Cannot toggle the mouse wheel detents on-off (like you can with the G500)
- No weighting system
- LED lighting "only" has 7 pre-defined colors, and no support for user-definable colors...

Other Thoughts: This is very good and smooth mouse, once you've installed the driver software, which seems a real must as the mouse would freeze for 5 seconds every 15 seconds or so without it. The driver does seem compatible with the Logitech profiler software (no conflicts, co-exists well).

This mouse fits my large-ish hand well; I have an older Logitech G500 mouse and this mouse feels a bit wider, shorter in length and slightly taller. It does not have any weight-adjustability like the G500, but the Havoc is fairly light and feels just about right to me regardless so it's not an issue. This mouse has three VERY large sliding surfaces, which are far larger than any of the Logitech mice I have (G500, G700, G9x) or any other mouse I've ever used for that matter, and I believe these help it glide better on my SteelSeries ThicknHeavy pad that any other mice I've tried. The mouse wheel has a more positive 'detent' than the G500 (which always felt a bit soft to me). This mouse does not have the pushbutton to toggle the mouse wheel between detent-mode and free-wheeling mode like the G500 has, though. I do like the LED lighting (seven colors to choose from) but no support for user-defined colors. The CM Storm driver software has a ton of tweaks to choose from, so this mouse is *highly* tune-able to suit your taste and speed. The macro capability exceeds my needs but is nice to have, too...

Overall, an excellent mouse at the price. I'm glad I snagged one. :-)

Frigidaire FAD504DWD 50-Pint Dehumidifier, White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 02/20/2014

This review is from: Frigidaire FAD504DWD 50-Pint Dehumidifier, White

Pros: + Highly effective
+ Surprisingly quiet
+ Modest footprint

Cons: - Kinda pricey
- Catch tank is a bit small, compared to the capability of the unit
- Catch tank is a very tight fit when replacing after draining
- Top-venting fan exhaust might not work for everyone, restricts unit placement somewhat

Other Thoughts: I really like this unit. Super-quiet compared to the 10-year-old Kenmore dehumidifier it replaces (even when the ol' Kenmore was new, before it's fan started crapping out). What fan noise I do hear is more a 'whoosh', than a fan roar or buzz. This moisture-sucker is a very capable unit, easily handled my wet 1000 sq.ft. basement when I plugged it in; went from patches of standing water, to a bone-dry basement (unit set to 50% humidity) in under 24 hours. I'm both impressed and very satisfied.
