Pros: Nice housing, looks nice, seems to work ok. 10 year warranty?
Cons: Motherboard connector ridiculously tight. Modular cables seem almost useless. Fan only runs under heavy load.
Other Thoughts: The motherboard connect is ridiculously difficult to clip in. I'm done trying as I don't want to break my mobo. The cable is seated all the way but still the clip does not engage. From what I'm seeing online its a common problem on these Corsair supplies. I've been building computers for 25+ years and this has to be up there with the hardest to seat I have ever experienced. There is no reason it need to be that tight, I just left it unclipped. You should have apply nearly that much pressure, its a design flaw. Old PSU connect from a Coolmaster went on no problem. Also the modular cables almost seem like more trouble then they are worth. I guess this PSU technically has more connections then your typical with all the cables hooked up but after hooking up only the ones I needed it was no different then my old non modular PSU. I didn't save any space with the modular cables and in actuallity they seem to take up a bit more space per cable while also being a bit harder work with. Also the fan only comes on under heavy load which, to me, isn't a benefit. I don't care about normal fan noise, I'd rather have maximum cooling. On a side note, I don't even think these are made by Corsair I think they may be made by Seasonic. I got mine for the shell shocker price and was probably 100 watts more then I needed but I can't complain I guess. What sold me was the 10 year warranty though we'll see how cooperative Corsair is if I ever need to make a claim.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS Challenger Prime Backlit Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Feels great, looks awesome, build quality, features
Cons: Arrived damaged
Other Thoughts: Great keyboard, I love it already. One thing that's got me a bit upset though, it arrived damaged. On the left side the macro keys have the left edge paint scraped off and the back light is showing through. The box was undamaged so it was actually put in like this having obviously received the damage at the factor. I guess on one at quality control caught it or didn't care. Not a huge deal but I'd expect to get something with no damage. I don't know if its worth sending back, if Newegg or Thermaltake pay the shipping I will return it for a replacement, but at 25 dollars it hardly seems worth sending back at a cost of 7 or 8 dollars. I would really like to get it replaced but only at no cost to myself. Its a bit of a bummer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive, large screen, decent performance
Cons: Low speaker volume, battery life is not the best, low system memory, last generation screen but what do you expect at this price.
Other Thoughts: I paid 55 dollars for mine which was a good price for what it is. At the current price I'd say spend the extra and get a Lenovo or something like that for around 130 or 150. The screen is pretty nice, not as great as the new generation screen but still hi res and clear. Screen does polarize at angle and is very glossy so glare can be a problem in certain situation. I bough mine for around the house use so not that big of a problem but outdoor use in daylight will probably be another issue. I like the fact is has Android 4.4 and the quad core processor is nice but I can't understand why they would only put 512 megs of RAM in it. Seems like too little RAM for 4 cores to be sharing. 1 Gig of RAM and this thing would be really nice. Plays games like Bejeweled and Plants vs Zombies 2 just fine but Real Racing 3 seems to crash, probably due to memory limitations. Still is a nice tablet for what it is. Battery life is probably around 4 to 5 hours and maybe more with wifi off and brightness down. Good for my uses, I can't complain too much. Would have been much better with more memory for sure but its a nice tablet none the less.READ FULL REVIEW
