This review is from: Panasonic All-in-One Cordless Hair/Beard Trimmer ER224S
Pros: I've had one of these for three years and five months. I've used it about once a week to keep the rest of my scalp uniform with my balding crown. It takes one charge of several hours per week and does what I need it to without fuss. See 'Other Thoughts' for details regarding this second purchase. I will probably get more than 10 years of use between both the one I have, and the new one.
Other Thoughts: I've dropped the one I have several times. After all of this time, it seems that a cracked developed on a part of the depth gauge that secures it to the chassis of the trimmer. Instead of bothering with any DIY repair, I decided to look into purchasing another one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-F1Plus 80mm Silent Case fan
Pros: Zalman has won my loyalty. I purchased the gigantic CNPS9500 heat pipe and fan in 2/2009 for the Q8400 that I have been using since. That CPU cooler is still going strong. I was happy enough it that when a five year old no name case fan died, I bought a Zalman to replace it. This is the third Zalman fan I've purchased, to cool three SATA drives that get rather warm without a fan. All of the fans work seamlessly with Speedfan and PWM control.
Other Thoughts: These fans are marketed for quiet cooling. But if you're interested in performance cooling, use Speedfan or similar to crank up the RPM's. They will perform. My drives are 10°C cooler with this 80MM fan cranked to max speed.
Also, the pictures show clearly that the fan uses a three pin connector. The page at the Zalman site shows the same, but does not indicate the type of connector otherwise.
This review is from: ZALMAN ZM - F3 120mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: PWM functionality. Supplied resistor cable for those whom want only 900 RPM instead of 1700. Works with Speedfan on an Intel DX48BT2.
Cons: None now, and I don't expect any.
Other Thoughts: I decided to go with Zalman for a new case fan because of the high quality CNPS9500 heatpipe/HSF I purchased back in 2009. I'll be going to Zalman when I upgrade from my Q8400.READ FULL REVIEW
