SeaSonic  X-1050 ( SS-1050XM2 ) 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works when it works. Silent.

Cons: It died on me. TWICE.

Newegg history shows that I bought this back in 2012. It died on 2014, so I had to RMA it.

Starting last month, my PC did not powered with switch. After disconnecting PSU for couple of hours, reconnecting cables then it turns on. Yesterday even with 6 hours of disconnection from power outlet, it did not recover.

Other Thoughts: Such a pain to process RMA with Seasonic by the way. I honestly don't have such time to repack, send, wait at least 6 weeks for another possibly-can-break-again unit.

Seasonic has been pretty solid with my PCs for past 10+ years. I don't know what is up with this unit though. Like a sucker (loyalty customer), I bought another PSU from Seasonic. This is the last chance. If one of my Seasonic dies again, I'm never buying them again.

3 out of 5 eggs Great product with minor fault; POOR SUPPORT 03/16/2015

This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Runs great. Price. Build quality meets the expectation.

Cons: When wake-up from sleep, PCIe video card does not wake up. To use the wake-up function, you have to use the APU video, directly from motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I have two separate video cards, both Radeon HD series. They worked just fine with my previous HTPC build. But with MSI AM1I, they just would not wake up once enter sleep/hibernation mode.

I contacted MSI support and they told me that it was the video card's fault. My final reply was on 02/23. Since then I never heard back from MSI ever again (today is 03/16).

BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast. Quite.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this drive as NAS using my router. My router only supports XFS instead of NTFS so I was worried first, but this drive worked flawlessly. I'm sure this drive will just fine with WIndows supported file system.

I'm also sensitive to noise but this unit didn't was quieter than usual internal HDD which is INSIDE of my PC. Awesome!
