This review is from: C2G 0.5m HDMI to DVI-D Digital Video Cable
Pros: They look decent. Unfortunately they aren't.
Cons: Out of four, one didn't work at all and the other three had flashing pixels. I'm surprised that such a shot cable could work so poorly. I've usually been happy with C2G cables in the past but these were duds.
Other Thoughts: I didn't buy these from Newegg but from another large online computer parts store. They are a reputable seller and they came in sealed and labeled C2G packaging.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Forgot to mention in my previous post... Throughput is right where it should be. I'm seeing 133MB/s average read and 77MB/s average write using HD Tune Pro. That is very close to the Intel 320 80GB specs.
Cons: See previous review.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tripp Lite SRCOOL12K 120V, Self-Contained Portable Air Conditioning Unit
Pros: All of the pro from my previous review still apply.
Warranty replacement of the unit was perfect after it died. Tripp Lite sent me a brand new unit free of charge.
Cons: My experience with this unit turned out to be the same as the consumer room air conditioning units. It developed an annoying squeak about a year after I got it. this was a high pitched plastic rubbing on plastic squeak. I did tons of things to try and stop it but nothing helped.
14 months in to it's life, the unit died. It's evaporator would freeze in to a solid block of ice. (Low refrigerant problem.)
Other Thoughts: I'd happily pay extra for a heavy duty unit that wouldn't die every 14 months. I thought that was what I was getting with the Tripp Lite over the consumer Royal Sovereign units. I guess not.
The moral of the story is not to mess with these portable units if you need a reliable unit that will run for years 24/7. Instead, get a ductless mini split system with low ambient operation. Yeah, they are $3-5k but at least they will last. The nice thing about them is that if you are in a plenum environment with a decent ceiling space or warehouse nearby, you can put the condenser there.
