This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA
Pros: Great size. Feels good. Text from my pc is clear, movies have little or no motion blur. No defects. Who couldn't mention over 100 reviews on this product. It's certainly nice to know with some measure of predictability what you're likely to get. I learned two things because I couldn't find another rating history on a single other set with even remotely as long a history. It's a nice panel. It's cool. It's simple. I think Changhong ought to change their name for American dudes though, just rhymes with too many derogatory words in English.
Cons: The cons are really like the cons you get if you're a good deal hunter. Be real. Maybe a particular scene in a particular movie will put a particular color squarely in a large way in your line of sight. --Then there's some pixelation..
Other Thoughts: Gaming is extraordinary on a set this size. It feels like looking in a window. If you haven't played your games big yet, drop everything. Four hundred brings a lot of happiness here.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller
Pros: First, thanks NZXT for making a 30 watt controller. The sliders are stiff and have a quality kind of slide, yet fine tune extremely well. At the lowest speed, I was originally nervous that my Delta's would still be too loud. Not at all. Additionally, Delta's will run at a lower speed but need more at startup. This controller starts all fans at full power for about 4 seconds then executes normal settings. I can actually run my Delta at (almost) a whisper.
Cons: Not one.
Other Thoughts: Buy two, I did. I have 9 fans in my Cosmos and even room for one more. Is ten overkill?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-128GB
Pros: This is my first USB 3 drive and all I can say is wow. I backed up a Windows system image file at a constant 80mb/s rate. That's incredible considering I'm used to, what, 15?
The other features are cool. The aircraft aluminum feels like grip tape made out of metal. Feels very tough. It could probably roll of the desk and survive (see below.)
Cons: I wouldn't lean too much on the high impact advertising part if that's that you care most about. Although it's obvious you could step on it and the canister would protect well, you'd still have to baby this thing because we all know dropping an electronic device is usually what kills it.
1) The rubber bumpers, if that's what they are, are cheap and would only work to absorb shock if the drive fell horizontal and level.
2) The canister is round. While I confess engineering isn't my strong suit, a drive that advertises shock resistance might be designed not to roll off the desk onto the tile floor. No need to test the claim unnecessarily.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very satisfied. The drive is fast, holds a lot and feels as though it offers measurable protection against the average accident.READ FULL REVIEW
