Rosewill R-BC-01 Battery Charger for AAA/AA Alkaline ,Ni-MH, Ni-CD and 9V Batteries(battery not included)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I said in my first review that I was getting a kill a watt and wanted to test this charger, and i did. This charger runs on about 2 watts of power, give or take. So even after a full day, this thing uses less power than a 50 watt light bulb does in one hour. Hope I got that comparison right, but anyway, only pennies to recharge batteries. So definitely cost effective. I should have known that, since it just does a trickle of power to slowly charge the batteries.

Cons: Like lots of others, I managed to break the lid. I'm sure I did something stupid, like try to move it using the lid as a handle... but use care, it's the most fragile part of this charger.

Other Thoughts: 10 bucks cheaper than when I got it, great price if you want to recharge ALKs for low power devices.

AMD Sempron 140 Sargas Single-Core 2.7GHz Socket AM3 45W Processor SDX140HBGQBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Got it at a GREAT price about a year ago, and bundled with a gigabyte 785 for under ninety bucks. This is an excellent budget CPU, and I was lucky enough to be able to unlock it to a stable dual-core. Even running as a single core, it's SO much better than our old 3GHz P4. I have this running 24/7 in a case with no fans (as a single core), and it stays VERY cool. In fact, I hardly ever hear the stock CPU fan power up. The P4 sounded like a jet engine as soon as I hit the power button, then would ratchet down several notches as it loaded windows, but then would get louder and louder again during use. I'm SO glad I don't have to listen to those fans try to cool that red hot processor any more. Silence IS golden! The 140 is also much faster than the P4. That didn't surprise me, but what did surprise me was just how fast the 140 is. I got the 550 BE for our HTPC because I had read that you should have at least a dual-core, but now I think the 140 would have done the job.

Cons: Even if I hadn't wound up with the ability to go dual-core, I would have no complaints about this great little processor.

Other Thoughts: At this price, it's hard to go wrong. Obviously not for cpu intensive tasks, but more than enough CPU for your average computer user.

FirePower ModXStream Pro 600W 80Plus Semi-Modular High Performance ATX PC Power Supply 600MXSP, formerly PC Power & Cooling
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Got this for a great price after the rebate, and yes I did get my rebate card. After reading so many bad reviews about rebates in general, I made sure I followed ALL the rules, and didn't have any problems. I also picked up some OCZ memory, and got the rebate back for that, too. This power supply is actually much more power than I need for my HTPC with onboard graphics, but I really wanted a modular unit for better cable management in my smallish CoolerMaster 360 Elite case. This power supply was perfect. No extra cables messing up my small case, is VERY quiet and stays very cool. The best part is I just forget it's even in there, doing it's job and not causing me any worries.

Cons: Way more power than I need? I know that's not a con, just funny that this was the least expensive modular by quite a bit when I bought it. I actually like having the extra power, gives me room to expand.
I have absolutely ZERO complaints or cons. I wasn't sure about the OCZ brand, but both my power supply and OCZ memory have exceeded my expectations.

Other Thoughts: With a good sale price and rebate, it's not just a good price for a modular, it's a good price for a power supply.
