This review is from: JVC HA-V570 3.5mm Connector Over-Ear Headphone
Pros: Has a volume control. Cheap.
Cons: Definitely too small for a normal adult male head. Even extended, the top presses hard against the top of my head making it quite uncomfortable. The cord is a little short too. Also, the sound is a little sharp for my personal taste.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake CLP0600 92mm Contact 21 CPU Cooler
Pros: Good quality workmanship and material. Fits many motherboards.
Cons: I have assembled 4 computers from scratch with not the least trouble, and consider myself somewhat of an expert. However, on trying to install this cooler, I found it IMPOSSIBLE. Removing old backplate, installing CPU, thermal grease, positioning Thermaltake backplate, and putting the proper clips on the cooler base were routine. However, this cooler requires 4 spring screws to go through the cooler clips, and some distance to the motherboard holes and Thermaltake backplate. The first problem was to align the cooler clips, motherboard holes, and. hidden backplate. I solved this by putting 2 screws, without the springs, in diagonally to align everything. But when I tried to put the third screw in with the spring, it took excessive pressure to overcome the spring enough to reach the baseplate and screw it in a little. The cooler immediately tilled toward the spring. It was literally impossible to tilt the cooler back enough to install the 4th screw with spring. If I could have done this, I would have still had the same problem with the other two screws when adding springs to them. Other coolers usually have a section attached above the motherboard. And this is what the cooler is attached, often with a lever to easily apply the needed spring pressure. I later found that other websites also warn against this problem. I haven't even mentioned the danger of all this pressure to the CPU and motherboard. Fortunately, they weren't damaged. Thermaltake trying to save money has made a defective product. I told their rep this problem is very severe and needs recall. Rep said will pass it on, but can only RMA for the same product.
Other Thoughts: If the above wasn't enough, I sent 3 rebates together to 3 companies including this one. The other 2 have confirmed receipt of the rebate; not Thermaltake. This used to be a good company. Now trying for worst around.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eagle Tech Cool Power ET-PSCP 500 500W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Cheap. Not DOA
Cons: Cheap - very light-weight. Only 4 peripherial connectors, and these are too wide making a very tight fit to push into some plugs. Only 1 SATA connector (not 2 as advertised). Somewhat noisy - certainly not quiet. MIR never came through.
Other Thoughts: My Computer#1 PSU was very noisy, and I bought this hoping it was quiet. No such luck. While better, the Thermaltake PSU on Computer#2 is far quieter. Guess I'll have to buy another Thermaltake.READ FULL REVIEW
