This review is from: Targus APV10US1 150 W DC-to-AC Slim-Line Power Inverter
Pros: Effectively charges laptops on the AC outlet, and even the latest Galaxy phones through the USB. The cable for the DC/Cigarette lighter is of a decent length, so if you don't have a DC outlet in the backseat, it can still reach your second row.
Cons: The fan that helps to keep the internal circuitry cool can be a bit noisy, though after a while you both tune it out, and it seems to settle to a lower speed once it has been on for some time. Just a little distracting if you're listening to music.
Other Thoughts: I bought this when I went off to college, thinking I might need to charge my laptop in my car. It turns out I was right; when the power would go out in the dorms, I could charge my laptop in the car, and bring it back inside to watch movies with. A truly useful utility.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Plenty of airflow, fan mounting locations, and sturdy construction. Cozy amount of space for a moderate amount of internal components.
Cons: Thumbscrews, thumbscrews, thumbscrews! Also, no forward mounted fans right off the bat, and cleaning the front grille can be a pain.
Other Thoughts: Used this in a build for a friend who needed a new computer. While he was exceptionally pleased, I am too used to a different case style to not point out the issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Completely Modular, variety of PCIe power cables for multiple cards, fairly long CPU supplemental power cable, flat cabling
Cons: Had to make sure that cables were securely latched to PSU, had a few false positives
Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a 750W Corsair due to power needs, and I could not have made a better decisionREAD FULL REVIEW
