This review is from: Hamilton Beach 80374 Black Custom Grind Deluxe 15 Cup Hands-Free Coffee Grinder
Pros: Compact design
Espresso grind setting
Cup size markers
Cons: Cap locking design takes some getting used to.
Other Thoughts: I needed an inexpensive grinder that held a large capacity and was capable of a very fine grind. This grinder handles both astonishingly well. The espresso setting really does grind espresso, and does so consistently. The grinder also includes a cleaning brush and coffee scoop. Cleaning is a breeze, it's very easy to disassemble. I highly recommend this grinder for my fellow coffee lovers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP KS526AA 12-Cell Extended Life Battery
Pros: - Long battery life
- Well made
Cons: - A bit pricey
- Large, not absurdly so but noticeable
- Ads a little weight to the notebook
Other Thoughts: I've only had this battery for a few hours but I can already tell that it's leaps and bounds over the 6 cell battery it replaced. My current HP battery was giving me about 1.5 hours so I was expecting roughly 3 hours with this 12 cell battery. I'm happy to report I was wrong, I'm getting close to 4.5 hours. It also has a feature that allows you to plug the battery ac adapter directly into the battery along with a led power meter, these were two unadvertised pleasant surprises. Cosmetics of the battery kept me from giving it 5 stars. It's ugly but it works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK EP-CD901 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Pros: Surprisingly Quiet
Attractive Design (IMO)
Good HTPC Form Factor
Cons: Difficult Mounting
Other Thoughts: This fan is a good replacement for a stock cooler but is not intended for overclocking. In my family PC it Keeps a AMD 5400+ pretty cool with moderate overclocked speeds and PLENTY of ventilation. This fan needs room to breathe and requires a supporting cast (good airflow, case fans). The mounting mechanism for AMD is difficult to use, I felt like I was going to snap the motherboard in two, be careful with the mount. If you're not pushing your processor too hard and are looking for a low cost replacement to your stock cooler, this may be the fan for you.READ FULL REVIEW
