This review is from: 50000mah External Power Bank Backup Dual USB Battery Charger For Cell Phone
Pros: -Lasts forever
-Has a backup led light
-Power % led
Cons: -No documentation or indication which usb port is the 1A and which is the 2.1A
-My phone uses 1.8 A to charge and at a 50% charge (on the phone) this power bank does not supply enough output on either port to 'continuously' charge my phone. Worked fine on other devices that required from 1A to 2.8A. (May have needed an extended 10 hours of charging prior to being used for the first time)
Other Thoughts: I got this for $15. Was worth trying out and wouldn't have been a serious loss if it didn't work as advertised. So far the power density of this power bank is quite remarkable but the lack of the simple raised markings showing which port is which is quite annoying. Had a friend who bought one just like this with a solar panel on it and had to open his to repair the battery leads that were broken in delivery. The craftsmanship is about what you would expect with a $15 product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great for running small game servers on a G3258. (I know it wont be OC'd here but another board is on the way. Everything worked great day 1 with all my SSD's for game server storage but today I tried to plug in an video card and the motherboard doesn't recognize the card.
Cons: Looked in BIOS and it doesn't recognize the x16 slot at all. The x1 lane is found fine though. Not sure if this was broken from day 1 but very disappointing. Did proper checks on graphics card seating, visual inspect of all connectors for all parts involved, upped the power supply to a 700 watt, tried another graphics card I had lying around, tried all parts in other systems I have on hand.
The 'OS' version of the fan and system temp software is almost non-existent. It loads a window and says 1 thing, what the current temp of the CPU temp is. I suppose if you only have 1 job.....
Other Thoughts: Everything I own works find in other configurations just not on this board. Too bad, would have made a nice budget board for lan events but will just have to stay stuffed away in my rack at home. 1 Egg off for broken x16 lane, and 1 Egg off for too simplistic of features for the BIOS. Could use Raid configs and better fan control management in and out of BIOS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Blaze 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PB240GS25SSDR
Pros: Works =D
Used as a boot drive for a home ITX server and holds one game server currently and is lag free.
Cons: Saw someone post about this thing feeling empty, I have to agree it does feel quite light to the touch and makes me wonder about how it will survive my 5th floor drop testing so we shall see.
Read speeds during bench-marking got well over 500, where the writes were in the mid 300's on Sata III.
Kinda wonder if firmware is to blame for the reads or my super cheap ITX-H81 Biostar board is to blame. Meh.
Other Thoughts: Over all I'm happy with this SSD, hope it lasts 2x as long as it I need it too. Hoping for a PCI-E x4 ssd upgrade and use this guy in my main rig for extra game space, Darn you gta and your file sizes *angry fist*.READ FULL REVIEW
