Pros: I needed a triple monitor stand that would fit two criteria: first, I needed a surface-mount unit with feet rather than a desk-mount with clamp; and second the stand needed to be able to accommodate three 27"+ monitors. The pickings are surprisingly sparse for a stand that meets both of those requirements. This stand does exactly what I need it to do at a reasonable price.
The monitor mounts can all swivel for landscape and portrait mode, and can all articulate for horizontal viewing angle, including the center mount. The outer two mounts can also articulate for vertical tilt, whereas the center mount is fixed for tilt. The outer mounts have a broad range of horizontal positioning adjustment, and with my 27" monitors still have about 3.5" of usable horizontal adjustment available.
All three mounts have a great range of vertical (height) adjustment, and I like the quick-release clamps and easily-handled clamp wheels for positioning. I have my monitors mounted at a height of 8" above my desk; minimum height is about 3" and maximum about 10.5".
The slightly textured matte-black powdercoat finish is nicer than I had expected, and the hardware and fittings in general are of very nice quality.
It should be noted that you'll need a desk/mounting surface with a minimum 39" width to accommodate the stand's feet.
Cons: There is slight sag on the outer mounting arms, but this is to be expected - I've not seen any large monitor mount that doesn't sag to some degree. The arms, clamps and bushings are good quality and not flimsy and with some adjustment I'm sure that I could compensate, but I have not been bothered enough to expend the effort.
Other Thoughts: This stand is available under different names and by other sellers on other websites, but as usual the best deal to be had is right here on NewEgg. I give good marks to this seller partner and I received the product quickly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: In general you won't go wrong with Corsair PSUs so long as you do your homework. I've fried or overtaxed several power supplies in my time but Corsair PSUs have never let me down, and this keeps me coming back. The advertised feature set is exactly what I needed for my current project, a mini-ITX small form-factor htpc box with gaming cred. This PSU is solid and quiet, but there are some very minor quibbles.
Cons: The modular cable options are a bit limited. I needed to use two separate SATA power cables to accommodate three drives in my mini-ITX case, which would not have been a factor if the connectors had an additional inch of separation between them. It also would have been nice to have a molex adapter present so that the dedicated molex lead could have been omitted, but this is a very case-sensitive circumstance. Bad pun, sorry. No serious knocks here, but do be sure to check the diagram in the product photos to ensure that the cable and connector options are going to play nice in your system - mine required all of the modular connections to be used, where in a perfect world I could have deleted two cables.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent timings and decent hardware at the price. i wasn't familiar with the particular branding on the dimms, but they do not disappoint. Good value for money. Heat spreaders qualify as "low-profile" and gave me no problems in a mini-ITX build.
