Pros: Works great on Ubuntu 11.04. No massive power supply or extra connector needed. Dual DVI.
Cons: Price seems rather high, but this appears related to the dual DVI outputs. DVI > VGA.
I did need to boot in recovery mode once or twice to reset the video configurations. Just follow the logical prompts. Not really the card makers fault since this will happen with almost any card on ubuntu.
Other Thoughts: This is for my work computer. I can't stand having choppy video. I personally believe my productivity increased the first day I had it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: POWEREX MH-C808M Charger
Pros: It functions very well, it feels well constructed, it's versatile in types of batteries and it's very fast to charge. Soft charging is a plus. 8 charging slots seem like overkill untill you convert your household from regular batteries to rechargeables... then it just makes sense. I like the LCD that tells me a little the charge status and remaining charge, as well as the charge mode, and some other nuggets.
Cons: Pretty huge charger. I haven't seen a bigger charger.. but then again this is designed to handle D cells.
Sometimes it won't charge over depleted batteries and you need a dumb charger to bring the voltage up to a level this charger will recognize.
No 9v charging capability... I'm forced to use some other dinosaur charger for 9v's.
Power connector end seems like it might be moderately easy to bend or damage. Its design is similar to a ps/2 port on a mouse or keyboard.
Other Thoughts: If they upgraded the power connector to something more sturdy, offered a 4 cell charger version and made a way for the charger to manually charge the extremely depleted cells just high enough to automatically charge the rest of the way, I would give this item all 5 eggs... but these things make me feel like it is worth a 1 egg deduction.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: I did serious homework before purchasing this power supply. In fact, I know entirely too much about power supplies now for someone who doesn't actually manufacture or engineer them - but it paid off!
This is absolutely the highest quality, most well designed computer component I've ever owned in my life. Every single aspect of the design and feature set of this PSU speaks volumes about the forethought and care Seasonic put in to it. When you see this thing in person, you just know it's the best. I'm so serious.
Don't take my word for it. The reviews out there show that this PSU has the cleanest power, the most efficient power, the lowest fan noise (read: Silent), possibly the best available components (solid caps, pcb, etc), modular cabling with high quality connectors (with plenty of extra cables), and one review said they drew over 8-900 watts SUSTAINED without any signs of strain.
Even the packaging, manual and the cable bag/case oozed quality.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: My review is not adequate to convey the superior craftsmanship of this power supply. If Seasonic made other computer components I would buy exclusively from them.READ FULL REVIEW
