Pros: Was highly rated with great specs at decent price so a no-brainer for customer's built. I really liked the EVGA motherboard I used for my personal built not so long ago so I figured I'd give it a try.
Cons: Delivered the system on Tuesday and I get a phone call on Thursday that the system is one fire! What the?!?!?!?!
I said what do you mean on fire? They said that it popped, sparked and smoke started pouring out of the vents. So I naturally drive out to the city because I am extremely curious as to what happened. I opened up the system to be greeted by an awful burned chemical smell; the video card is charred in few places along the top edge. Shocker!
Other Thoughts: I bought a PNY card locally to replace this in a pinch and noticed that the PNY card has metal board along the top edge ending with heat sink fins at the end of the card possibly to mitigate this exact issue of whatever components are in this area.
All in all pretty scary situation that would make me think twice about EVGA quality not to mention my bruised reputation. I've worked in this industry for over 15 years and built hundreds of systems from $400 desktops to $10K+ servers, fire? never had anything go on fire.
Not so sure about EVGA going forward.
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Pro Mouse Pad
Pros: You need precision and smooth tracking this is for you. Years ago I used to say that mousepads are useless. This pad changed my mind completely. No more jumpy, skipping or unexpected movements.
Other Thoughts: Price is a bit high for a mousepad, but if I needed another one I would buy without hesitating. If it was cheaper I would buy this thing for everybody I know; Seriously!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IOCell Networks Portable XT 251PXT 2.5" Black USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: One of the best enclosures I've used to date. Great design, precision aluminum case. Very compact, no need for these portable cases to be any larger than this. Works with both USB 3.0 and 2.0. Cable is short but seems to be very high quality. LOVE IT. I got 2 when they were on special for 9.99 with free shipping. Should have bought more for clients.
Cons: won't make you pancakes for breakfast
Other Thoughts: Case "screws" screw into brass threads in the tray, not straight into the plastic. They won't strip like on the el-cheapo cases I've seen. Aluminum casing helps with heat dissipation. Very clean minimalist design. PERFECT!!!READ FULL REVIEW
