EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: it is a very pretty card. it didn't destroy anything else when it went.

Cons: ummm... it blew up 9 months in? i'm not like i'm using cheap components. my PSU is EVGA's top of the line Supernova 1000 Watt Platinum. and my computer sits behind an expensive APC Smart UPS. which is a server grade unit, not the cheap junk you pick up for a few bucks at your local "office" store.

as i was working on a document, i heard a popping noise and the computer immediately shut itself off. i smelt something electronic burning. looked inside and noticed that smell is coming from the GPU and nowhere else. tried turning it on again, everything spins up but no video. popped in a workstation GPU i had laying around, an nVidia K2000, and it fired right up.

Other Thoughts: i bought this thing to play BF4 back on November 1, 2013. i never got around to play a single video game on it. not even once. just had no time. never messed with clock speeds or voltage. the card literally did nothing for 9 months.

all i did with it this entire time was web browsing, watched some videos, and fixed up some spreadsheets. that's it...

RMA is pain in the rear! before having you RMA approved you MUST talk to their dumb tech support who make you do the dumbest things to "test" things. the computer works with a different card but it doesn't work with this one. plus it smells like it is burnt. what else do you need to know?!?

Thermaltake SMART Series SP-750M 750W ATX 12V V2.3 & EPS 12V SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works well. super quiet and powers a system with a superclocked GTX 770 with ease.

i love the ribbon cables. cable management is a breeze.

mine says 5 year warranty on the box.

Cons: unreasonable MRSP, so you have to catch it on sale.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine form another merchant for about 1/3 of what Newegg is charging. $110 is too much for this unit. $80 would be a better price because of the 5 year warranty. or $70 if you get the new version with a 3 year warranty.

QNAP TS-469L-US Diskless System High-performance 4-bay NAS Server for SMBs
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: this thing is feature packed, AND FAST!!! the amount of things this little box is capable of at this low price completely blew my mind. HTPCs are dead.

Data transfers with dual NIC hits a total of 170MB/s when moving files to multiple work stations.

Cons: Low on RAM for 1080p viewing via XMBC, but you can upgrade the ram easily just as if it were a laptop. Buy a $20 2GB RAM module and you are good to go. it works but you can see an occasional stutter when running on the stock half gig of RAM. upgrading the RAM fixes this. no eggs lost for this.

Other Thoughts: I bought this thing to replace a Synology unit that was moving slow, which itself was purchased to replace a Buffalo unit which more or less was not moving at all.

-I am using a 2GB samsung RAM module I pulled from a Dell laptop in this thing, works like a charm.
-Running 4x 4TB WD RED drives in RAID 5. Formatting+sector check on all drives took 10 hours. on my Buffalo unit the same thing took 5 or 6 days. truthfully i don't recall whether it was 5 or 6. in either case it was totally unacceptable.
-DO NOT use regular desktop drives in NS units. they can't handle it and they will die fast.
-I plugged in a 4TB USB drive that was running 2x4TB drives in RAID 1 into this thing via USB 3.0 and effectively turned that old drive into a NAS too. AWESOME!

if this unit was made by a big name like Seagate, Buffalo, D link, WD, etc, they would be charging $800+ for it. it is that good. don't hesitate. buy it.
