CORSAIR HXi HX750i (CP-9020072) 750W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The features are well engineered: full modular using flat low profile cables, 80 PLUS Platinum certified basically means it will be at a minumum 92% effieient, Japanese 105C capacitors, low heat, low noise. The ZeroRPM mode will keep the fan at zero speed until the load requires it to spin up, and then it is very quiet.

Includes Corsair Link USB cable for performance monitoring allowing the adjustment of fan speed and rail mode to single or multiple.

Supports ATX12V version 2.4 and EPS 2.92 standards, while being backward compatible with ATX12V versions 2.2, 2.31 and the ATX12V version 2.01.

Cons: The package does not include a cdrom to use Corsair Link, you need to download the software. The zip file contains a Windows install exe file. See the Corsair forums for the current threads on their "open support" for Linux.

Other Thoughts: The power supply self test works just the AC power cord, no need to hook up to a PC. The instructions state to press the button to make the fan spin, which it does for a brief second. If you hold the button in, the fan will fully spin up, allowing you to appreciate the low noise.

The Corsair Link flickers a LED during activity.

Carepeutic KH265A Bed Rest Lounger with Heated Therapy and Soothing Comfort Back Massager
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Lesser quality than the price suggests 06/08/2014

This review is from: Carepeutic KH265A Bed Rest Lounger with Heated Therapy and Soothing Comfort Back Massager

Pros: The product features are all there, the light is flexible and bright, the heat setting is hot, the cup holder holds cups, the arms support your body, the massager vibrates.

Cons: The quality of the fabric is average at best. The filling material is hard and average. The use of the zippers is complicated, once you do it, you wont want to ever remove the zippers. The carrying bag is low quality. Overall, the quality is not worth the price changed, even at the sale price.

Other Thoughts: The arms are in fixed positions, meaning thinner people will like this product more than larger ones.

ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Quality product for less cost 06/08/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: ASRock quality has steadily been improving than its products in the past, this board contains all the worthwhile features of more expensive boards without their cost. Includes nice features like supporting Dual Channel DDR3, alloy for better heat control, gold audio caps for noise reduction.
THe UEFI settings are relevant, while less what-if than others, the essential options are there, and the cost is reduced, it makes for a good combination.
Some features are there as a way to future proof the product, the M.2 Port for SATA3 and PCI-Express (NGFF), and supports 5th and 5th Generation Intel cpu.

Cons: Has less over clocking features then other Z97 boards, so overclocking results stay rather close to the default settings. While this may seem limiting, the board is designed to give you all the required features instead of being an over clockers workbench, it is aimed at stability and lower cost.

I thought the on board sound of the Realtek ALC892 was good for music and gaming, sound purists will say this is dated, and to replace it with a SONAR DG Sound Board.

Other Thoughts: Delivery box had a large dent in the side, which also dented the motherboard box. When I inspected the contents, I found the motherboard was wrapped in a really nice foam tray, and thus none of the contents were damaged. They really put some thought into how to pack a box to prevent damage to the contents.

They offer the ASRock Cloud, which is a one year subscription to OrWeb ME so mobile devices can connect seamlessly to the PC.
