COOLMAX ZX Series ZX-500 500W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap advertised after-rebate price, good specs in theory.

Cons: There are two major problems with this power supply and one major problem with the company.

The first major problem with the power supply is that contrary to its specifications, it is unable to handle the power surge at boot from even a modest system. It simply turns on and then shuts off. An Intel dual-core, GTX 960, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and DVD drive were too much for it. Unplugging the DVD drive allowed it to boot most of the time. Unacceptable from a "34A" 12V rail. I popped in a spare 350W power supply and it worked flawlessly.

The second major problem is that often, but not always, to boot the computer I need to flip the black switch on the back of the power supply off and back on. Otherwise when I press the power button on the front of the case, nothing happens. Very annoying when the tower is under the desk.

Lastly this power supply is often offered with a rebate, which brings its price down considerably. However, the web address listed on the rebate form does not exist. After manually navigating the website to the correct page that lets you enter your information, it comes up with "server error" displayed on the page and you cannot proceed further. A quick search on Google shows that this problem has been going on for YEARS. A complete scam.

Other Thoughts: Save your money. Do not be fooled by the specs or the rebate. Both are false.

Kingston 4GB microSDHC Flash Card W/ E-Tail clamshell Model SDC4/4GBET
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I got this for my girlfriend's camera. It uses a different type of memory card, so she needs to put the Micro SD card into an adapter in her camera, and then in the regular SD card adapter to read it on her computer. Even with all of this, it has been going strong and has yet to fail after three years of regular use.

Cons: The full-size SD card adapter is not the same quality as the Micro SD card and eventually literally fell apart at the seams. I guess it is not intended for constant use and its plastic is rather flimsy and weak.

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty PC Game

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome! 01/29/2014

This review is from: Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty PC Game

Pros: This game is great. Have been playing it off and on for quite a while now. I have played it on my powerful desktop and on my weak laptop. It is quite adaptable to the hardware you have and does not have very high system requirements. The money I paid for it was well worth it as I have played it for hundreds of hours by myself, with friends, and with strangers online. This game has a lot more replayability than most.

Cons: I guess the only con to this game is that a lot of people are migrating to the expansion. I guess I will too if I can get a good deal on it.
