This review is from: NZXT CB-LED10-OR Sleeved LED Kit - Orange, 1 m
Pros: Came out of the box with nicely rolled up sleeved cables. Installation was quite simple, all of the LED's worked, and have a nice deep orange hue, nothing too bright or piercing, but still able to fill my smaller mid-tower case with light at its highest setting.
Cons: The LED cable is flat, so there are really only two options to face the cable, towards the back, or towards the front, and the plastic sticky clips only hold it flat as well.
The 2-pin to Molex power adapter is only a few inches long, so I had to place it in my bottom-most expansion slot to keep the molex plug away from my motherboard.
Neither of these issues affected performance, they were merely aesthetical drawbacks.
Pros: Built my gaming rig using a cheap non-modular PSU, and the packaged 8-pin motherboard cable was too short to go around or behind my mobo so I was wiring it under my GPU which make me feel pretty sketchy. Hooked up this extension and opened everything up. Cables are all pretty well sorted, the heatshrinks felt firm and the cables stayed in despite me giving them a good tug just to make sure
Cons: The sleeving is plastic and has a lot of springback memory, so it's a little tough to conform to the shape you want, I had to twist mine around a bit to cut down on the splaying out of the individual wires, since they weren't all the same exact length and some bowed outwards. Still though, if you play around with them for a bit, they're a wonderful cheap addition to your cable managementREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 111 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT111/16GB
Pros: -Wonderful design, love the shiny cross-hatch texture on the cap.
-Blisteringly fast. 75MB/s read-write on windows 8 64-bit.
-No bloatware, comes as an empty drive
Cons: -Only 14.5GB usable space, sort of a disappointment given I've used 16GB drives with 15.1-15.5 GB usable space.
-Didn't come with any straps or cords to attach to a keyring.
Other Thoughts: You can find cheaper 16gb USB 3.0 flash drives, but they probably wont be as reliable or fast as this one. Needed one shipped fast and free for a windows 8 boot drive for my PC build, arrived in 2 days, couldn't be disappointed. Would recommend for someone needed a long-term reliable flash drive, just watch out for the 10% cut in usable space.READ FULL REVIEW
