Pros: This is a great Surge protector. It has metal housing, a long but pretty thin 25' cord that will be easy to hide, it is rated at 3900 Joules which should help in most surges and it does not cost as much as some other similar ones do!
Cons: The unit is yellow which makes the suppressor itself very noticable. No other cons that I have found so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor
Pros: It is pretty accurate, very cheap, has a lot of different meters built into it and there is absolutely no setup needed: just plug it into the AC outlet and plug anything you want into the meter, and you will now be able to monitor your power usage and such, great device!
Cons: It takes up two outlets in most cases(at least in my house), it also does not have backlight which would be very appreciated but because of the fact that it is so cheap, it is definitely not enough to take an egg off
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these watt meters for 17$ on sale(1 in August and 1 in December) Both of them still work great and help me monitor my power usage and keep the bill down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: First off, the card is made out of metal, absolutely love to see that and it makes the card feel a lot more robust and durable, it also looks very good. The card overclocks very nicely and the cooler is absolutely silent even at 100% fan speed compared to the Asus 280x dc2 I have and a sapphire Vapor-X 7970.
Cons: The biggest gripe for me is that the card is voltage locked. This really made undervolting and keeping temperatures down a bit of a pain when mining. You will need to make a custom bios to make changes to the voltage. Also, the cooler is not very effective although near silent as stated above: It just does not move a lot of air. The temperatures are not absurdly high but they do hover around 73C while mining at stock settings. Another problem I had with the cards(I have 2) is that they would not work on my Gigabyte z77-ud3h which is very unexpected because both the motherboard and the gpu are made by the same company.I tried flashing bios on the motherboard but I would still get blue screens from time to time.
Other Thoughts: One of the cards I recieved was a dud: It blue screened and made graphical glitches even at settings below stock, it also overheated and went up to about 82C. Thanks to Newegg RMA policies the RMA went great and I had my money back within 2 weeks, Thanks Newegg for the great service!READ FULL REVIEW
