Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 16GB Black 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works beautifully for the first couple months

Cons: screen is constantly turning off intermittently. It has become unusable

Other Thoughts: This is the first product I've ever bought that I've had buyer's remorse over. I wish I had paid closer attention to the negative reviews of this item before purchasing, because only 3 1/2 months after purchasing, the phone began to fail.

CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series GreenPower UPS CP1000AVRLCD 1000VA 600 Watt 5 x 5-15R Battery/Surge Protected
4 x 5-15R Surge Protected Outlets UPS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: LED display is very handy, nice to see how many kwh are being used with everything plugged in. I unplugged the power cord to the UPS, it didn't miss a beat. Everything plugged into it was running fine.

Cons: Lightning strike (I assume, as the thunderclap and flash were quite large) caused brownout/surge which took out the whole house momentarily -- including my computer which was hooked up properly and only running at 28% capacity. I realize that surge protection can only do so much, especially against lightning strikes, but its still quite disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Thought it quite strange that the very next day after I received the UPS a lightning storm would come in to test it XD. Still not entirely sure how I feel about returning this and getting a new one. Although I doubt even heavy duty commercial UPS would stand up to a direct lightning strike...

AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.5GHz Socket AM3 125W Desktop Processor HDZ970FBGMBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast, piece of cake to install. Just about as expected.

Cons: Included fan is abysmally loud. Its slightly less loud than having a vacuum cleaner running right next to my PC.

Other Thoughts: I was naive enough to think, "oh, my motherboard is AM2+ it should work without any hassle" and so when I first booted up it was only running at 800mhz and was "Unknown processor". A simple search for my motherboard and updated BIOS was enough to get it running at proper speed.
