This review is from: IOGEAR GearPower White 11000 mAh Mobile Power Station GMP10K
Pros: Huge capacity. 11000 mAh will charge my Nexus 5 about 4 times. Great for summer tour when I live on a bus!
-Seems very durable
-Great price if you can get it on sale
Cons: -Very long recharge time (though that is to be expected since it's such a large battery)
-would be better if both ports were 2A.
Other Thoughts: Make sure that your device will charge on a 5V circuit. I have an Asus Transformer TF101 that requires 15V, so this battery will not charge it. (The tablet's fault, not the battery's)
If your device can't charge on 5V (standard USB) then it most likely won't be compatible with this.
and a slight con:
-status lights are really bright at night (they stay on while charging) but if you flip it face down it's not so bad.
This review is from: Westinghouse 22" 1080p LED-LCD HDTV LD-2240
Pros: -Pretty good picture quality for not being a big name brand.
-1080p at this price, can't complain.
-Decent number of inputs, though I did get an HDMI switch since it only has 1 HDMI-in.
I use it primarily as a PC monitor over HDMI and it's served me pretty well. Also good for console gaming, I've used it with PS3 and Xbox 360 and never noticed any of the lag commonly associated with HDTVs.
Cons: -Speakers are pitiful. According to manufacturer website they are 3W. And it shows...way underpowered. (Not usually a big issue for me personally since I use this as a monitor and have a Logitech 5.1 system on my PC). Does have a stereo headphone out to combat this issue though.
-Stand is a tad bit flimsy so don't abuse it too badly. It tilts up and down a little bit but has a pretty limited range of motion.
-If you want to use an antenna (either the internal one or an external HDTV antenna) you have to go to the manufacturer's website and search your serial number to get a code which enables you to use the antenna. It's a one-time thing, kind of a pain but not a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: When you turn it on there is a few second delay where it displays the Westinghouse logo as it loads up. Pretty normal for a TV I suppose, but using it as a computer monitor this is slightly annoying. Probably wouldn't have even noticed just using it as a TV.
Has parental settings and what not if you are concerned with that.
I didn't buy this particular item from Newegg.
This review is from: CORSAIR CAFA50 120mm CPU Cooler
Pros: -I have yet to see my CPU temp get above 56 C, and that was while running Prime 95.
-With a rebate it was 10 dollars. Super cheap but high quality.
-Pretty easy install, even though Intel likes to make fan installs difficult
-Large fan size makes it really quiet. No need for the speed limiter, it's much quieter than my PSU and video card fans.
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: This is an very large cooler so check if it will fit in your case before you buy it. I have a monster size case and it fit in mine with plenty of clearance, but if you have a small case or a MicroATX mobo, you may run into issues with it getting in the way of your opposite case side or RAM slots.
I have been using this cooler since July. I'm running a Core i5-3570k with BIOS on high performance settings. This is the best $10 I have ever invested in my computer. (which I am super protective of)
