Pros: good length of cables. all voltages were well within tolerance. big fan so expected to be very quiet.
Cons: arrived with dead fan and despite emails to thermaltake support about the issue I NEVER even heard back. of course, Newegg was great and refunded promptly.
Other Thoughts: How can I recommend a product that arrived DOA and the support site never responded to questions? I can't. Its back to PC Power and Cooling for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HTC ONE 3G Version Silver 3G Quad-Core 1.7GHz 32GB Unlocked GSM Cell Phone
Pros: -The only smartphone I ever held with such craftsmanship in the exterior. The more you know about it the more you you like it. -As a full-time photographer I greatly appreciate the larger photo sensor sites (thus fewer of them) and the quality of the picturs in dynamic range and especially low-light make it a real camera. Anyone who claims the resulting pictures look bad just doesnt know much about digital photography. I no longer carry a seperate camera in the car for opportunistic shots - Its Android, they pretty much are all the same to me but I do like Sense and I LOVE having an carrier unlocked phone so no bloatware. No need to root and install CM just to get a clean screen. -screen is about the maximum size i would want in a phone; large enough for movies, small enough for pockets. -internal hardware is pretty much what all the high-end phones have this year but the 1920x screen is flat out beautiful -fav app currently? a smart remote for all my A/V gear that automagically mutes the Receiver or TV if the phone rings. Thats cool. Just saying, everything runs fine, fast and I have yet to hit a snag.
Cons: Only concern is the attractive frosted aluminum back will get marred pretty easily if not kept in a protective case. Something I never worried about with all the black plastic phones in the past. I also miss the built-in kickstand on my Thunderbolt but the One makes up for that by being thinner. Sorry I cant provide solid negatives to worry about but after 3 months I am still impressed with it every time i turn it on. Hope that does not make me a fanboy :(
Other Thoughts: I had planned on rooting and running cyanogenmod after i got 'android 4.3 OTA. now that I have 4.3 and played with it on a nice carrier unlocked phone I will not install CM and lose Sense. I really like it just as it is. For change of pace I have tablets with CM. Finally, I have tried Net10, tMobile and StraightTalk SIMs and all work fine and came online with little effort on my part.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good connectors, pliable, inexpensive
Cons: When used to connect Toshiba Thrive tablet to plasmaHDTV the picture is constantly sprinkled with twinkles and dots. Certainly not a low freq, like 60 hz kind of noise. Position, input plug, nothing matters. Other inexpensive store-brand cables work fine in same situation. Too cheap to send back so guess I have a pull toy for the cat.
Other Thoughts: Its possible I have the one bad cable out of 1,000 or that its slim profile is due to lack of shielding. All I know for sure is my other cable works and this one does not. End of story.READ FULL REVIEW
