Bell + Howell Black 2600 mAh Power Bank, includes cord and 4 adapters 9242
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs So close yet so far 01/14/2015

This review is from: Bell + Howell Black 2600 mAh Power Bank, includes cord and 4 adapters 9242

Pros: I bought this power bank on Newegg Flash for something like 80% off (I don't remember the exact amount but I think it was around 5 bucks). So, for me, price was a great pro. The design, besides the sharp edges (addressed in "cons"), is sleek and pretty. The adapters are nice. Also, *when it works*, it can charge my HTC One m8 nearly all the way from 5 percent. On that note, read the cons.

Cons: The battery itself doesn't like to hold a charge. That in itself is enough to make me dislike my purchase. Okay, allow me to explain. The battery does hold a charge, but it often loses it even while not plugged into anything. I would go to plug my phone into the battery and it would only charge 5% before the battery dying. Sometimes the battery would be completely dead without it even charging anything. To add context, this would be after something like a couple hours of it in my pocket or backpack. No extreme temperatures, no collisions, nothing to damage it. Even weirder, the battery doesn't stay at max charge during charging. I would have it recharging and leave it for a while. When I come back the light would be blue, but I didn't need it at the time, so I left it. I come back a few hours later and plug my phone into it after unplugging the battery from the wall and it would once again charge my phone maybe 20% before dying. Some days were better than others and the battery would hold most of charge for 6-7 hours. But these days were very rare. I cannot recommend this battery pack at all.
As for more minor cons, while the design looks nice, the edges are surprisingly sharp. I cut myself on the base once while picking it up. Eventually I just places a couple layers of tape over the edges and it is okay again.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps I got a faulty power bank? Because, honestly, I'm still disappointed and its been nearly 7 months.

Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell Dual-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 54W BX80646G3220 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this CPU for my second computer and it runs at a very surprising speed. It feels very zippy on Win8 and has no issues running any basic programs. It even allows me to play TF2 on Med-High with very playable FPS.

Cons: Nope!

Other Thoughts: Perfect for the budget computer.

RAIDMAX Cobra RX-600AF-B 600W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very effective PSU especially for the price. I haven't tried SLIing with it yet, but I'm sure it will run perfectly. Its super quiet and easy to install. I love RAIDMAX and this PSU just perfectly fits all that I love about RAIDMAX. Also, it looks boss.

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: If you are unsure of whether or not to buy this or another one, get this one. Even if you have to pay a bit extra, it is a fantastic PSU.
