Pros: +Class 6 model: Read/Write @ 15/9 MB/s (Good speed) +Flash Adapter bundled +Great Price (49.99$+Adapter+Free shipping!) for a micro package item that has huge storage capacity. +Works with Samsung's Blackjack i607 with WinMo6.
Cons: Since I couldn't find any con on this, I'll just nicpick for the heck of it. -Not the full 16 Gigabytes capacity. ;D
Overall Review: Bought this for my Blackjack i607. Had a 2GB MicroSD when my i607 was still WinMo5 and facing storage shortage problems. Decided to upgrade the handset to WinMo6. Didn't want to bother with the alternative driver install for WinMo5 method. The i607 with WinMo6 detected ADATA's microSDHC card instantly and show storage capacity of 15318MB. Transfered all my files from my 2GB to this 16GB card, plus more files that I wasn't able to fit into the 2GB, and works great. Didn't notice much of a speed improvements on the handset with a faster microSD card such as; video playback, taking pictures/recording with the camera, read/write access time is limited by the handset. I suppose the i607 is already working at maximum capacity.
Pros: Good quality PSU for it's value. Lasted from 05/22/07 to 06/01/10. Had this PSU on for practically 24/7 straight for over 3yrs. Never was it powered off for more than 15 minutes, now tho, it's powered off for life. This PSU powered 4 internal storage drives. 3 External SATA/USB storage drives. Geforce 9800GTX+. Intel Duo Core E6600 Conroe processor without any problems, until it died.
Cons: 1yr warranty only.
Overall Review: It was a good PSU while it lasted. Tho, 3yrs is not bad, was hoping for a much longer lifespan. I've had only 1 other good PSU ($100+ value) died on me, that's due to my recklessness. This one on the other hand decided to give out just from being on non-stop (tho the dust build up might've had something to do with it.) $50 for 3yrs of service is not too shappy. Remember folks, you can avoid many headaches and frustrations with a good quality PSU when assembling a new PC system. So don't be cheap on a PSU. Get a good quality one. It's difficult to find a decent PSU at this price range from my local retailers. Will order a better PSU from newegg, such as the CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX. It's a little more expensive than this one, but taking my own advice, it's best to invest on something that will last.
Good Portable Speakers
Pros: -Cheap (Got this when it was $9.99+Free S&H) -Very good sound quality (but that varies depending on your media compression quality presets for your media files). Even at MaxVol. setting on my devices (iphone, nano, Omnia 2 i8000L, it's loud and clear with majority of my medias (music/movies) files. -Durable and well made, doesn't feel or look cheap (but is priced cheap!) -Fits well with most portable handle devices (iPod, iPhone, Smartphones w/ 3.5mm jack) -Incoming calls goes out to speaker when plugged into a cellphone with 3.5mm audio jack support. Makes for a great speaker compare to the built-in speakers on most smartphones. -FM Radio on capable smartphones can still work with this speaker!
Cons: Unfortunately it's not perfect. -Power switch inside the pouch makes it inconvenient to turn off the sound when you need it off promptly. -Doesn't come with batteries. -No extra room to house backup batteries. -No external volume control -Price went up $5 just after 2 days of purchasing it.
Overall Review: Bought this mainly for use with my Samsung Omnia II i8000L smartphone and now enjoying my media(s) on the go even more. This portal speaker would be perfect if it had an external off button with external volume control support. Furthermore, if the backside had a slide opening to quickly gain access to your device for prompt control. Guess it's time to mod it myself. Make sure to get some rechargable batteries for this, as you would go thru too many 2xAAs on daily usages. At $9.99 and free shipping, it is well worth purchasing one or a few despite the cons. However, with the price increased back to $14.99 (and still free S&H), it's still worth purchasing one for your own use or as a gift to someone that love music and traveling a lot.
Not a bad card
Pros: +It's a fast card, not the fastest around, but will allow you to play all games on the market [today] at maximum visual quality settings*. *Of course, this also depends on your other PC hardware configurations. +Can't go wrong with EVGA's product warranty and step-up program.
Cons: -The fan is quite loud @ 100%, but a good headphone set can fix that. In most cases, the fan wouldn't require to throttle up at 100% speed. However runs abit hot idle for me (at 61c +/- 2) as reported by ntune. This is at stock core speed, Non-OC'ed, too! -The card is also rather lenghty, so you might run into trouble fitting the card into your case. Make sure you do proper measurements before buying this card to know if it'll fit in your case. -Newegg should really list the Product Dimensions info, which is 9.7 x 13.1 x 3 inches. This thing bearly fits in my case, had to move my HDDs around to get it to fit.
Overall Review: Got this beast equipped on a P5N32-E SLI PLUS mobo, won't be able to SLi it due to my case (COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05), the bottom hard drive bay (where my 2 HDDs) are blocking the 2nd card insertion area. This gfx card is THAT long. Runs fine and stable with a XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W PSU (however, would not recommend this PSU for it, as it won't be able to SLi 2 cards). Mobo, PSU, and Case also bought from Neweggs. As other had mention, if you already own a 8800 series card, don't bother upgrading to this one, wait unti a true next gen card comes out.
