This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS480E12 480W ATX12V Power Supply
Cons: Power Supply only worked for a few hours
Other Thoughts: The power supply worked just long enough for me to test the hardware, install the OS, and install the system into my entertainment center. Then, for no reason, dead computer. Had to remove the system from the entertainment center and swap the power supply with a know good supply that I had to pull from a working system. So basically this product wasted as much of my time as possible before failing. I would have preferred a DOA.
When purchasing Logisys products don't just take the low price at face value. Be sure to factor in the shipping cost of the inevitable RMA.
This review is from: Logitech Mini Optical 930732-0403 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical Mouse
Pros: When I move the mouse the pointer on the screen moves.
Cons: This mouse is only slightly smaller than the standard Microsoft optical mouse was bought to replace.
Other Thoughts: This mouse is not very "mini". It is just a little bit smaller than a regular sized mouse. It is larger than the vast majority of notebook mice out there.
This mouse is USB only, it does not come with a USB to PS/2 adapter (I knew that when I purchased the mouse). I unplugged the Microsoft optical mouse and plugged this mouse into the Microsoft branded USB to PS/2 adapter and no dice. If I plug it directly into a USB port if works fine. I thought the USB to PS/2 adapter would be standard and work for pretty much any mouse, but I guess I was wrong. Maybe it would work through a Logitech branded adapter?
Pros: • Came with 4 fans
• Nice removable hard drive cage
• Low price
Cons: • Case is taller than the height in specs
• Steel is thin and flexible
• Case itself and hard drive cage were not square
Other Thoughts: On the positive side, the pictures and description do not show it, but the case came with 2 front fans, 1 rear fan, and 1 "blowhole" top fan. I like the choice to put the hard drive cage in two different orientations.
On the negative side, the steel the case is made from is cheap and thin (just as I expected for the price). The case wasn't quite square out-of-the-box, only three feet touched the ground at once. But because the steel is thin I was able to easily tweak the case into shape just leaning on it. The hard drive cage gets warped when hard drives are installed, so you have to mess with it a bit to get it back into place. Also, the connector wires coming from the very front fan are too short to plug into the fan header on my motherboard.
I'm not disappointed, I think that this is a good case for the low, low price.
