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
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I own two of these, both purchased in late 2010.

The PSU worked great and flawlessly for about 1.5 years on one machine, and 2 years on the other. They operate 24/7 in two FreeNAS boxes, each with 6 HDDs and a flash drive with a micro-ATX motherboard.

Cons: After 1-2 years, the fans started to make bad noises. Extremely noisy. A few weeks later, the clicking starts. It's certainly internal to the PSUs. I have RMAed both of these today, waiting to hear back now from CORSAIR.

Other Thoughts: The PSU's still work, but the clicking and fan issues are unbearable unless this thing is tucked away in a closet.

2 out of 5 eggs Worse mouse movement ever 08/01/2012

This review is from: Logitech diNovo Mini Black 63 Normal Keys Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard

Pros: It's small, that's about the only good thing I can say about it.

Cons: I got one in the mail, set it up without much hassle on my PC, and the keyboard seemed to work fine - but the mouse functionality was the worst in the world. No matter how I played with the settings, movement was sporadic and unusable. I thought it was a lemon so I got a replacement.

Unfortunately, the replacement was just as bad. I even tried the thing on two computers. I'm not sure how logitech is using or testing these things, but it's miserable.

Additionally, no back-light.

Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 75% of them are still up and running, and I haven't hadn't operational issues until they begin to fail at least.

Cons: I've owned 12+ of these. 3 I have been replaced (RMA). Obviously 25% is a huge percentage for HDD failures, pretty unacceptable really.

Granted, I run these nearly 24/7 in a small server, but I've never had such high percentages of failures. They work for a 6-18 months than die, unfortunately.

Other Thoughts: I don't have a huge problem replacing these whenever they fail. I'll live, I have my data in a RAIDZ array and use other means for the most important data - so it's not the end of the world when they fail and I need to rebuild. It's more just a pain. Anyhow, I wish I had about 20 hours of my life back from dealing with these.

I won't skimp on HDDs next time!
