This review is from: CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series CP1350AVRLCD UPS
Pros: Along with my power supply this has been on my computer for 7 years running 24 hours a day most times. It is on the original battery still.
Cons: We had a storm last week where the power was flickering on and off. The UPS seemed to be making a strange noise which I had not heard before when it was getting set off. On self test, it drained down much further than it used to (44% as opposed to the 71% on the new one I bought) Well it HAD been 7 years!
Other Thoughts: I ended up purchasing the updated version of this UPS which has front USB charging ports. I drained my old one by running a 7 watt LED lamp for 5 hours (which is what I calculated it would be using my computer wattage as a guideline). There were no strange noises when I ran the lamp so I think my original 7 year old one will be just fine for a while longer to use on a router or some other lower wattage equipment.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Like the energizer bunny, it just keeps going.
Wow! I had to check my purchase history. I have owned this since October 2008 and it is now August 2015. I leave my computer on 24/7 for the most part. I suppose I should upgrade someday but I have never had any problems with this power supply.
Cons: People have had bad luck with this item, guess I am not one of them or they don't make them like they used to.
Other Thoughts: My power supply is new compared to my Coolermaster Stacker 810 case!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Got this to put in an older MicroAtx motherboard and hard drive from a computer that was given to me. I despised the beat up large case that it was in and this was much better. I have seen flimsier cases, this is a good quality case and what I would expect for thie price point. Using the computer to stream to the TV and as a Dropcam monitor. the case is nice because it fits in a small area.
Cons: I would note that I did not put a DVD player in this computer. I think it would be difficult to put either in this case. The header cables come down right in the DVD bay area. I used a smaller fanless video card and it fit in fine
Other Thoughts: I learned the hard way: you might need to put in the hard drive (standard 3.5) before the motherboard. I have never had run into this before, but there simply wasn't enough room to clear the motherboard heatsink on mine.READ FULL REVIEW
