COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great airflow
Whisper-quiet
Not that ugly orange color

Cons: $16 per fan can seem pricey
No bulk/package options

Other Thoughts: I got 2 of these several months ago for some extra cooling for my server case, and they are wonderful. I was initially a bit skeptical about spending $30+ for a couple of simple case fans, but I don't regret it at all. As noted above, they have great airflow while staying virtually silent. There is no need to worry about a fan controller with these, just plug them in and let them run 100%. I can't speak to how long they'll last over the years (I hope it'll be years), but I've put about 2000 hours of use on these so far and they're still going strong.

Note: Get fan grills for these if you don't have something protecting the rotating assembly. Many newer cases have them built in, but some older/low-end ones don't. Not only will they protect unsuspecting fingers & paws from getting sliced, but they'll also protect the fan and motor from accidental damage, promoting a longer life. Grills are super-cheap compared to these, so go ahead and spend the extra few bucks to grab a few.

6.5mm Domed Titanium Ring (Men's and Women's)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Work of Art 11/13/2012

This review is from: 6.5mm Domed Titanium Ring (Men's and Women's)

Pros: Price
Amazingly lightweight*
Strong
Perfect fit
Hypoallergenic Metal
Amazing Seller

*For buyer reference, my size 7.5 ring weighed in at a meager 3 grams, which is just a hair heavier than a single penny.

Cons: Not resizable (obviously)
Scuffs fairly easily (see comments)

Other Thoughts: As many reviewers have noted already, the polished surface does get scuffs pretty quickly. I knew this when I made the purchase, and I like the more rustic look it gets as you wear it. And as no 2 rings will get scuffed in the same way, yours will truly be unique to you! A good jeweler could probably buff out the surface scuffs for a modest fee, but if you're paranoid about keeping a pristinely-polished finish you might want to consider a different metal like Rex's wide assortment of Tungsten Carbide rings.

As for me, I couldn't be happier with it. It's so light I occasionally forget I even have it on, and I think it looks better every day. I'll admit I was a little hesitant to buy at first, but I have absolutely no regrets and plan to buy buy from Rex again soon.

Speaking of Rex, I have to give him some major props. He was a wonderful person to interact with. His service is easily on-par with that of Newegg itself, and his prices are unbeatable. If this isn't enough to convince you to take the leap and buy from him, check out his marketplace reviews, as well as the reviews people have given him on all his products. He's gotten over 200 reviews, and the overwhelming majority of them are all 5-star. All I can say is that there's a reason for this, and he works hard to make sure his customers are happy.

Thanks again, Rex, I'll be back for a couple more items here in a couple weeks! I usually have a hard time picking Christmas gifts for my parents, but you've inspired me this year! I definitely owe 'ya one!

Unisex Tungsten Carbide Ring, Polished, Comfort Fit (Sizes 4-16)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Work of Art 11/13/2012

This review is from: Unisex Tungsten Carbide Ring, Polished, Comfort Fit (Sizes 4-16)

Pros: Price
Fast Shipping (on the way less than 5 hours after my payment cleared!)
Incredibly Durable
Perfect Fit
Beautiful (Pictures don't do it justice)
**Amazing Seller**

Cons: Not resizable (obviously)
May be a bit heavy for some people*

*I knew this going in because I know the metal this ring is made from. You do get used to it pretty quickly, though. For buyer reference, my size 7.5 ring weighed in at 13.1 grams.

Other Thoughts: For starters, I'd like to say that Rex is an amazing man to deal with. His quick response and amazing service puts him easily on par with Newegg itself. Check out the reviews on his products and his marketplace and you'll see what I mean. He's gotten hundreds of reviews, and they're overwhelmingly 5-star for a darn good reason. If that's not enough to convince you, give him a call and he'll put your mind at ease.

As for the ring itself, I couldn't be happier. Its finish is stellar and it fits perfectly. While it may be a bit hefty weight-wise, it's also virtually indestructible. I've banged and scraped it against a number of things (marble counters, steel cases, brick walls, etc.) and there's still not a scratch on it. In fact, a quick wipe on my shirt makes it shine just as brightly as the day it arrived.

I'm sure I could damage this ring if I really wanted to, but I'd have to break out my shop tools and make a real effort to do so. There's a reason they make industrial tools (like high-speed metal-cutting drill bits) with this alloy. Oh, and good luck trying to damage it with heat, its melting point is about 7,500*F =).

Thanks again, Rex, and I'll be back for more in a couple weeks! I've got some Christmas shopping to do for my folks, and I've got my eye on a couple of your other rings that would be perfect!
