PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Is It Worth The Risk 08/22/2014

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: High capacity
My other PNY flash drives have had no issues (but see note below)

Cons: Much better price this month elsewhere after rebate
Numerous complaints of premature malfunctioning and possible compatibility issues with Windows 8.1

Other Thoughts: Thought I was ready to jump on this Shell Shocker item today, but don't think I want a real "Shock" within a few weeks or months. Carefully, research this product before hitting the "buy" button.

5 out of 5 eggs Going Strong 01/27/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans

Pros: Using 16 gigs (8x2) Crucial PC1600 memory mods, but fan covers all four dimm slots on Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3, ATX mobo.

No heat issues for me, even in Florida, but temps dropped a few degrees which is always an asset. Fans are quiet, clear blades, blue LED is non-instrusive, unit support legs fit snugly against dimm release clips. Definitely increases air circulation through and around dimm slots improving exhausting heat away from memory and near CPU liquid cooled heatsink, then out through top fans/vents.

Constantly running since July, 2013. Installation took about 5 minutes. First, bend flexible legs inward toward one another in order to accomplish a tight fit against mem mod locking clips. Next, attach left or right side on the dimm release clip, pull next leg over opposite release clip, attach power to mobo “sys fan” pins and you’re finished. Slide entire housing so it’s centered over dimm slots. Power cord is sufficiently long. My unit doesn’t rattle, move and/or generate noticeable noise. Just pulled side panel, minimal dust on blades and no accumulation in between mem mods!!!

Felt flimsy at first, but after installation, it's sturdy and stable.

Cons: Could be priced slightly lower.
Might be tight against oversized heat sinks with large fins for some people, but more than enough clearance if using a liquid cooled heat sink rig.

Other Thoughts: Now certain memory fans will be included on all new system builds in the future. For the small price, it’s added satisfaction and benefit. Try one, you won’t be disappointed, at least, I’m not. Will wait for next promo discount to buy a spare unit.

Rosewill Blackhawk mid-tower case

10 system fans total (and surprisingly quiet)

EPSON WorkForce WF-2530 9.0 ISO ppm Black Print Speed 5760 x 1440 optimized dpi Color Print Quality Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Specs look decent for a personal, home office setup.
Ink cartridge prices are reasonably affordable
Manageable footprint on desktop
A couple current drivers/utilities on Epson product site
Read numerous reviews elsewhere from pleased owners

Cons: Need to dump this finicky HP OfficeJet 6500A even if slower output is a trade-off for functionality and reliability

Other Thoughts: If interested, best you do price comparisons. It's on sale this week all over for $69.99 (on-line and in stores) from numerous name brand sellers. Notified NE customer service already--$95 seems high for this product.
