Pros: Bought this on sale from a local retailer for $149.99, and I am very satisfied! This thing basically set it self up, probably one of the easiest installs I've ever done. *Separate cartridges for colors *Completely wireless printing *It can print from a phone *Directly prints/scans from Google Docs *Clean interface *Easy to change cartridges
Overall Review: This thing took me less than an hour to take it out of the box and have it up and running for all 3 of the computers in my house. You just follow the on-screen instructions, and it will print out the details for you!
Pros: Plenty of power, bass sounds good, the little volume dial is nice to have. They look pretty good too.
Cons: The cords are short. They are plenty long for putting it on a desk, but if you want the bass part down by your feet it might be a bit short.
Overall Review: I was looking for a set of budget speakers that were good enough to listen to music through. I saw these, read some reviews, and decided that for 20 bucks they were pretty good. I plugged them in and was pleasantly surprised at how well they perform. Keeps sound quality even at high volume, and my music sounds great. These are absolutely amazing for the price, I highly recommend.
Pros: Everything about it. I was looking at a cheaper 650W version when this one went on sale for almost half price. It came in a nice box that is good for storing extra stuff, and comes with all the extra cables you need, as well as a nice bag for them. As for performance, it is outstanding. It is so efficient that unless you are under very heavy load, the fan doesn't even spin. It makes NO noise when the fan is off, and isn't even audible over the rest of my system when it is on. The cables are all contained in nice bundles, which keeps the inside of the case looking clean. The only extra cable I needed was a splitter for my case fans, and most people won't need one.
Cons: Nothing. Literally nothing bad can be said about it.
Overall Review: Plenty of power for just about anyone.
Looks good, doesn't stick well
Pros: *Bright *Looks cool *Cords are long enough to hide the wires easily *has a switch that goes on the back of your computer
Cons: *Doesn't stick well to case *Metal plate on the switch doesn't match my case (but it is on the back, so not a big deal)
Overall Review: After about a week, both lights started falling off of the little sticky pads that come with it, which disappointed me because they look good. The hassle (and osh*t moment of hearing things clanking inside my case) was enough to take 1 egg. I fixed it with some tape, but I'm not sure if it will stay attached. Other than that, they are very nice and look good. For the same price as a single LED fan, you can light up your whole case. My case has a see through front, so you can see the stuff inside.
Pros: *Works very well *Optional second fan *Comes with mounts for second fan *Quiet
Cons: *HUGE. If you use 4 sticks of RAM the fan might block your first slot. I only use 2 (8 GB), and I have 2 mm of space between the fan and my RAM. If it fits though, get it. *Mounting is a little odd, but not that hard (got it right the first time).
Overall Review: NOTE: if you want to use two fans, make sure they are similar air flow or they may 'fight'. Even though the one it comes with isn't listed, this one is the closest you can get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103069 Also, if your motherboard only has 1 fan header or doesn't have PWM for the SYS fan (like mine), you should get one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119248 so that your fans run at the same speed. It is bad for the fans to run at different RPM's, and it can make it LOUD (trust me) when they aren't. Having one of those splitters (even though it looks a bit messy) will keep them the exact same and make sure your system stays cool. I am running an i5 2500k at 4.2 GHz and my temps rarely go over 40. At max load they can be a little noisy, but they are very quiet at lower speeds. I would definitely recommend this (or the newer version, the Hyper 212 Evo).
Works well, burns pretty much every kind of disk
Pros: *Cheap *Fast (for a disk drive) *no issues burning *compatible with just about everything
Cons: *LOUD - louder than the rest of my computer (7 fans) when it is burning, but so are most other drives. For the price, it is a good deal.
Overall Review: Came with everything you need, matches my case, no problems. Even though it is loud, unless you are using it all the time it isn't a problem.
