This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: Made good power while it lasted, fan not overly loud. Plenty of connections, and good cable length for a mid tower.
Cons: Started dying within 6 months (random reboots and shutdowns). After 10 months of ownership, sending it back to Corsair. I have to pay the shipping.
Other Thoughts: We'll see how the RMA process goes. I have a Corsair CX430 that is still going strong after several years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - fits in almost any enclosure due to small size
- priced well
- high quality printed circuit board
- all the ports and expansion slots you need for basic build, even a PS/2 port if you have an old favorite keyboard you just can't quit using
Cons: - None so far
Other Thoughts: This board was put in an Antec vsk-4000 midtower case and fit with all kinds of room to spare. Configured with:
core i5 4570
16GB (2 x 8GB) ADATA RAM
Sandisk 128GB SSD
Seagate 2TB HDD
using on-board/on-chip video
thermaltake 600W PSU
Pros: Prints excellent quality, and fast. Inexpensive. Scans multi-page documents (single-sided only) straight from the feeder.
Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu
Ink cartridges easy to replace
Cons: Software takes long time to install and is buggy. Requires occasional re-installation.
Navigation of settings on the small screen is a chore.
Other Thoughts: This printer serviced our family well for nearly 3 years and now has an error indicating something is wrong with an ink cartridge I just replaced a few weeks ago. For what printers cost, I am inclined to just buy a new printer. I found an online vendor that still sells the 4500, so maybe i will do that and keep this one for spare parts.READ FULL REVIEW
