ENERMAX UC-8EB 80mm Case Fan
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Quiet, decent life expectency 02/26/2015

This review is from: ENERMAX UC-8EB 80mm Case Fan

Pros: I found these to be silent; you have to look at them to make sure they're spinning. They're decently reliable, and they install/screw-tap easily. Airflow is also pretty good considering their silent operation.

Cons: I've had one of these become unbalanced after about 21,000 hours of operation (24/7 for at least 870 days). The second, installed at the same time is still running smooth. The cleanable aspect is a little nerve wracking; the blades do detach straight out but with a lot of force (tried it on the unbalanced one). I never cleaned mine, but I'd be worried about bending the unit while attempting to do so.

Other Thoughts: I bought four of these from a different shop, who has since stopped carrying them, and installed two as hard drive coolers in a home server, so they've been running 24/7 since the start of October 2012. I just replaced the one with two spares and will see if I get another 20K hours out of the spare.

GTMax 2 Port USB Car Charger Vehicle Power Adapter - Black (2000mA)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Charges, but glitchy 10/20/2014

This review is from: GTMax 2 Port USB Car Charger Vehicle Power Adapter - Black (2000mA)

Pros: Charges at two voltages, making it useful for keeping phones charged while in the car while it's giving directions or running power-hungry apps. Also, dirt cheap.

Cons: The spring-action tip is not well connected an I often have to move it around to keep it from turning off randomly, making this kinda dangerous to use in a car while driving. Not good to be frequently looking down to check if the red light is still glowing. Why are we selling dirt cheap stuff that breaks in a year that will only fill up landfills?

Other Thoughts: It doesn't come apart with screws, so I can't just open this up and enhance the wire contacts without possibly breaking the whole thing.

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply & New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Stable, long life, lots of SATA power connectors, came packed in a nice box with a cloth bag, relatively clean for its age, plugs are firm yet easy to remove, good length cords for a mid-size tower.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to replace an old power supply in my Linux NAS server at home. The unit has been running pretty much 24/7 since I installed it in October 2009. I have the system plugged into an APC UPS and it draws about 102W on idle with four hard drives, a Sempron 140, and Gigabyte AM3 board.
