This review is from: Original BPI 1.6V Ni-zn AA/AAA Battery Charger FOR NI-ZN
Pros: Hey, you need a charger for those cool Ni-Zn 1.6v AA batteries you use in your XBox controller, right?
Cons: It only worked once. When I went to re-charge the batteries after the first use, it would not charge them again.
Other Thoughts: According to what I read, Ni-Zn batteries like a 'quick charge' of about 2 hours to work at peak efficiency. however this charger takes 6 hrs to charge 4 AA batteries. Charging less batteries speeds up charging time but 6 hrs is pretty weak and apparently still too much of a strain on this unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought two of these. Great product. Super performing video cards at a great price. Though admittedly anyone will match Newegg prices now.
Cons: Cards are power mongers. 250w each so you better have a huge Power supply if you plan to SLI these babies. 850W or higher recommended.
However the biggest con is that I purchased and shipped directly from NewEgg who said my transaction did not go through despite my account being charged and debited. When I got that resolved they still waited a couple more days to ship it. Then the no-name company they used called 'Ontrac' (They used to use UPS) couldn't find my house despite living on a major highway and being clearly visible. 8 days to arrive from their City of Industry warehouse 25 miles away, only to be told that the new company doesn't have my gate code. (UPS, USPS, FEDEX, DHL all get right in) so that added another 3 days since it was a Friday when they attempted. NewEgg is seriously losing their edge. Why would I even bother waiting when I can go anywhere else and match their price without all the headaches. You guys really disappointed me this time.
Other Thoughts: If NewEgg would get their heads of out their rear end I may be happier with my purchase. hardware performance is great but the experience was completely soured by Newggg and their corner cutting.
Oh and their 'discount' return shipping labels for RMA cost about $3.00 more than if you bought it yourself directly from the UPS page. What a rip off, you guys. SO disappointed in you now.
Pros: Great for overclocking and a lot better than stock cooling but....
Cons: These do NOT fit my nvidia GTX 670 cards. These cards have a different board layout than the older 570, 470, etc on which these fit fine. Many of the GTX670 cards I looked at had a similar layout to the MSI cards I have and this will not fit any of those.The VPU is more towards the middle of the card so to line up the heat sync, the fan has to be moved way back, causing it to hang past the end of the card and not even cover the front part. Based on the card layout I would guess it does not fit on the higher model cards either since they use the same spec board.
Other Thoughts: These units are great if you have an older 400 or 500 series nvidia video card, but anything in the 660 range or above and you will be out of luck as the CPU is not located in the same place on the newer cards.READ FULL REVIEW
