Thermaltake toughpower W0117RU 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great when it worked.

Cons: Only worked for about a year or so and that was with the Thermaltake 150 Graphics power supply running in concert to take the graphics load off the Toughpower. I would not call it a Toughpower, I would call it a No-Power as it does not work and I have a power supply from NewEgg that cost me 40 bucks that has worked for the last 4 years without fail, my toughpower is a paper weight and has been for the last 5 years or so. Which is rediculous. It lived just long enough to be out of warranty.

Other Thoughts: I expected much more from Thermaltake. I have now switched to all Corsair Power supplies. Gold Series.

Thermaltake toughpower W0117RU 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Appears very sturdily made, 200 mm fan

Cons: Non-Modular, Not to mention, I have a 20 dollar cheapo that has lasted longer than this thing. I was going through some old parts doing some "early" spring cleaning and came across this thing. It has been dead for several years. It was connected to an Asus Striker II Extreme, 8 Gig's of Corsair and a Quad Core. I now have a cheapo 1000Watt that cost 20 bucks on the Bay and it has run the system longer that this "Power Supply??" did. I paid 279 for this one new and it lasted less than two years. It was in a Thermaltake Cube with 13 Fans and I also have the 300W Thermaltake Video Card add on Power Supply so my total TT power was well over 400 dollars and only the Video card one still runs just perfect. I have now moved to corsair power supplies when I used to be Thermaltake all the way. I am very UN-Impressed with the longevity of this Power Supply. Thus very UN-impressed with Thermaltake in general. I have even moved away from their CPU fans. Now I run Tunia and a couple others. But all my Thermaltakes are box decorations in storage.

Other Thoughts: Back in the day, when this first went caput, I emailed Newegg and they told me tough luck, it was out of warranty, by less than 30 days. LOL. Nice, a 300 dollar PSU and I'm done. I must say though, New Egg has always treated me right so I would assume that it is a Thermaltake issue. I even sold my Cube for 100 bucks and went with an old Alien Ware case and a couple Cooler Masters.

Corsair Force Series GT 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive has very high read/write rates, it loaded the os without issue and has thus far performed flawlessly. It took a somewhat quick laptop and turned it into a near lightning fast laptop. From the time you press the on button to fully ready to roll, 4 seconds with Win7Pro and 8gigs RAM.

Cons: The only thing I can think of seriously is that I know they are holding back on sizes to milk the SSD for all its worth before upping the capacities to within reasonable costs.

Other Thoughts: SSD's have been around long enough now that we should be able to get a 500 gig for around 200 or less. Yet, we are still paying a buck a gig?? C-Mon.
