This review is from: 1ST PC CORP. ACDC-100USHR Universal Laptop & LCD Monitor Charger for Home or Office
Pros: This is perfect for my at-home repair bench for when I have a laptop without a charger or I think it's a bad charger. I've been looking for one like this for a long time as my buddy had one (lasted 3+ years before it finally died) just like this and it was great to borrow.
Worked perfectly in an HP I just fixed last week.
Tips feel like they will stay on and not just "fall off"
Dial isn't easy to turn so no worries about it changing on it's own.
Cons: None yetREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Feels nice and heavy, which is usually a good sign. Their support is quick and knowledgeable. I most likely just had a lemon, but I'll never know...worth 3 eggs for what seems like good build parts and great support, but please read my reasons for returning below and decide for yourself!
Cons: Would NOT power my unRAID build I had setup. It would power the hard drives all just fine if I used my CoolMax PSU Tester to turn on the unit, but otherwise connected to the mobo I could only get 2 hard drives before it wouldn't boot right. I had bought this over a Thermaltake mostly because of the rebate and a sale they had, so when I found this unit could not provide the power (guessing as just defective) I returned it to Newegg for a refund and later bought a Corsair which has been great.
Other Thoughts: This may be a good brand, but my first and last taste of their products didn't leave me happy. I'd be willing to try another unit someday, but for now Corsair has stolen my heart (2x 650W like below and a HX1050 now)

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 8X Slim external DVD burner Model SDRW-08D2S-U/D-BK
Pros: Small and compact plus gets the power from the USB port. Read all burned media I throw at it and has been detected for booting just fine by several Netbook devices.
Cons: None so far, but I haven't used it but maybe 4-5 hours total since I got it.
Other Thoughts: I had a Rebate with mine and I got my Pre-paid card just as promised! I don't really care for the upright stand, but it works (just a personal thing).READ FULL REVIEW
