CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 650W ATX12V/EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great customer service, easy RMA process, power supply worked great while it lasted. Corsair stands behind their products. 5 year warranty.

Cons: Died after 3 years, still under 5 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: This power supply was much better than my computer recquired. After 3 years of moderate use, I smelled an ozone/ celery smell one night, and the next morning when I turned on my computer, no power.

The RMA on their website was easy. I received my new powersupply 2 weeks after they received the dead power supply. Its nice to see some companies still stand behind their product. Thanks Corsair.

They do not pay for you to mail the powersupply back to them (cost me $12).

CORSAIR RM Series RM750 750W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's modular, gold efficiency, cables are ribbon-like, silent mode at <40% load, reasonable price. The power cable you connect into your wall socket is noticeably more beefy than my old 650 watt psu. Its 16 awg instead of 18 awg. The 5 year warranty is nice too!

Cons: cheap feeling 4-pin molex 8981 style connectors

Other Thoughts: I see a lot of reviews about how stiff these cables are and how hard it is to route them around their case...I had no trouble. They are a lot more flexible compared to my corsair tx-650 power supply, and others I have had in the past. I thought the ribbon-style wiring made it rather easy to route the wires around. I also had no trouble attaching the 24 pin and 8 pin connectors to my motherboard. They snapped right in place.

The only issue I did have was: if you are using the old 4 - pin Molex 8981 style cables, they seem super cheap and the wires are loose in the connector. Most people probably won't need to use these, because everything is sata these days, but I needed to use it for the FDD power cable which my sound card uses. Once I connected them, it seemed fine, but they are just really really cheap feeling.

ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It has worked for 3 years. works fine as a media device if you already have windows installed.

Cons: I have never been able to install windows xp or 7 with this drive. I had to make a bootable flashdrive. The drive is recognized in bios and set as first boot just wont spin up...
