PowerColor Go! Green AX5450 1GBK3-SH Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Passive Cooling (quiet); Plays Blu-Ray rips without a flinch with a Core 2 Duo machine; HDMI/DVI/VGA outputs; perfect for extending life of an old machine

Cons: Passive Cooling (runs very warm); no way to mount VGA connector when using low profile setup.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to get a cheap card for an old HP D5800 being converted to a media player for a friend. Who is the PowerColor mastermind that didn't consider providing a VGA slot mount when converting to low profile? What? It may have cost an extra $.50? Epic fail.Since this is a DVI-D output, a vga converter is out of the question. Oh well... need to rig something to support the vga input plug, something the MANUFACTURER should have done at minimal cost. Now on to see if I get my rebate......

Mini Portable 3G/4G WiFi Hotspot IEEE 802.11b/g/n 150Mbps USB Wireless Router
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Small size; usb powered; fully functional DHCP router, with basic needed features. Using it for a portable network to connect my laptop with my smartphone. Works like a champ.

Cons: Horrid instructions, minimal packaging.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much everything you need is printed on the bottom of the unit (default wireless SSID and access code, admin username/password). Access it with a browser wirelessly (192.168.1.1) to configure, and there is a reset pin if things go wrong. This was shipped from Canada, received it in Florida in about 4 days. Minimally packaged (factory soft box inside a plastic sealed bag). For this price, does exactly what I need and is a bargain. Would purchase again if needed.

CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs cool and quiet; ruggedly built; plenty of SATA connectors for my needs; long sheathed cables

Cons: No 4-pin CPU power plug or adapter

Other Thoughts: Threw this in a budget Rosewill case with a Gigabyte A75M-UD2H mobo, A6-3650 cpu, Asus 7770 video card. Running for about a week with no issues, very cool and quiet. I think all psu's should come with 4/8 pin CPU power adapters, since both 4 and 8 pin are still current on new hardware. I butchered an old psu I had lying around and made one, but the cost (and hassle) of getting separate adapter plugs can add up......the cost would be negligible for the manufacturer to include.
