Worth Every Cent

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-550VX 550 W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-550VX 550 W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Pros: Every connector you could ever need. VERY quiet fan. I'm running 2 HDD's, a dual core processor, PCI video card, a few case fans, and 2 DVD-R drives without any issue (as would be expected). One of my buddies referred me to Johnny Guru who gives a top-notch appraisal of this unit:

Cons: I didn't suck it up and buy a good power supply years ago.

Overall Review: I must have bought no less than 7 or 8 cheap power supplies in the last decade. Every time one went out, I rushed down to <insert generic computer parts store compatible with newegg's review policy> to buy the budget $30 everyday low price, everyday low quality power supply. This time when the original power supply that came with the case died on me, I thought I'd see what the expensive power supplies were all about. My conclusion: "they're worth it."

Most Critical Review

Terrible

Rosewill RMS-MA3210 - Monitor Mount / Silver 17.00" - 32.00" Tilt & Swivel Wall Mount
Rosewill RMS-MA3210 - Monitor Mount / Silver 17.00" - 32.00" Tilt & Swivel Wall Mount

Pros: Reminded me why to not purchase things "for later use."

Cons: Absolutely awful. The metal on the mount is very sturdy but the hardware on the articulating arm SUCKS. Absolutely cheap as can be. Does not hold up well at all -- it slops around with a measly 20 lb monitor attached to it.... I had to drill new holes in the frame and mod it substantially (to a permanent fixed angle too) in order to get it to hold steady. Pathetic.

Overall Review: Unfortunately, I bought a pair of them ~4-5 months prior to when I actually intended to use them (moronic).

Great Product

Pros: Use it on a Point of Sale register at work. Works great.

Cons: The scanner is very prone to interference with anything in close to its path.

Pros: Works great. Very small footprint.

Cons: Lacks wired gigabit ports (which was not necessary for using as a wireless access point).

Decent

Link Depot SCW-10-BK 10 Pack of Black Anodized Thumbscrews
Link Depot SCW-10-BK 10 Pack of Black Anodized Thumbscrews

Pros: They're black and therefore very tactical.

Cons: The metal seems soft and seems like it could fracture under any real torque. Also, the lack of screwdriver head.
