Pros: 4 pin
Cons: not 3 pin
Overall Review: IDK what these other people are talking about, I received exactly what is pictured. If you got a 3 pin then they sent you the wrong fan, send it back.
Pros: Bought three of these to play games in 5760x1080. Decent for gaming
Cons: Edge bleed isn't great but not the worst I've seen. Including only 2 vesa screws is just weird. had to buy some 6mm screws.
Biggest issue right now is that when I connect them via DisplayPort to my nVidia 1080 card it looks washed out, black looks grey. HDMI works fine. Just got the issue escalated today, we'll see if tech support has any idea. In the mean time I'm using DP -> HDMI cables
Overall Review: I would not use these for general computing, web browsing, word processing, etc. but for my intended use (just gaming) they are adequate.
Pros: Comes in a faux-velvet bag like crown royal.
Specs are sweet.
Comes with a ton of cables, can run triple SLI
Cons: modular cables are flat. I'd prefer the conductors separated and sleeved, easier to fold and route IMO
why does an 8 pin PCI-E cable plug into an 8 pin port but 2 pins aren't populated? I get the 6+2 connector on the end for compatibility, however (and I know this is a nitpick) I'd prefer having the extra 2 conductors
When the power is off the fan makes a weird sound as its coming to a stop, like a ticking.
Overall Review: when I unboxed it I saw the velvet bag and though thats a bit over the top, but the modular wires seem lacking, I'd rather see those improved, for example 8 conductors on an 8 pin PCI-E wire...
Pros: Front face is 1/4" aluminum plate, looks great.
Dimensions are almost the same as my Yamaha receiver.
Fits a full ATX board inside.
Cons: Its a tight fit inside. Clearance issues with aftermarket fans, video cards.
Drive mounting system is kind of lame but I don't use them.
Overall Review: I managed to fit an nvidia 1080 card inside. Had to bend the back just to squeeze it in there and also had to modify the power cords to get them to clear the top of the case but I made it work. The drive mounts definitely would not work in my case, m.2 ssd was the only way to go for me. Also had to modify a noctua 120mm fan to clear my motherboard's CPU power connector. I could probably mount a slimline drive and clear the ATX motherboard but I don't need one, use plex from a NAS for media.
Just FYI, 290mm long video card is the absolute maximum, there is a couple of mm of clearance. Also my power supply is about 170mm long and it clears the front left fan. Lastly, noctua nh-d9l cpu cooler is the way to go in this case.
Pros: very cheap. screwless design is easy to swap drives.
Cons: came with euro style round prong 220v power adapter, not a US flat prong 120v
Overall Review: I had read the other review that said they received the wrong power adapter so when I got mine and found a 220v adapter I wasn't completely surprised. I contacted the tech support email in the reply and received a very prompt reply saying there were some packaging mistakes hence the wrong power supply. However since the replacement power supply is coming china it will take 4-5 weeks to ship... in the mean time I've cut the wire off of the wall wart and am using a pc power supply in the mean time.
Pros: 1431 MBps read 697.3 MBps write... wow...
Cons: a little pricey compared to a regular sata ssd but reads are 3x faster so considering the amazing performance its worth the money
Overall Review: How does newegg get this to me from CA to FL in 1 day with free shipping? incredible
Pros: Voice quality is excellent! I was using Skype-In prior to this and quality is much better, not to mention the connection is much more reliable. Caller ID on the handset works. Tested faxing with it, that works as well. Very pleased.
Cons: Took me a little while to figure out why I wasn't getting incoming calls, turns out the ringer on the phone was off! lol!
Just wish the second Ethernet port worked as a switch and not as a router. I unplugged my PC from the wall, plugged it into the obi box, then the obi box into the wall. In this configuration, my PC is behind a NAT and can't see my printer. Just need to get a cheap switch to plug them both into.
Overall Review: My parents were paying about $30/month for a second phone line for a fax machine. Ridiculous. Got a prepaid TMobile Sim card, ported the landline to that, then ported it from there to Google Voice (Google won't let you do it directly).
Pros: low profile fits in my HTPC perfectly. 100mm fan is almost inaudible, much better than the stock fan that comes with AMD A8 processor. the AM3 mounting brackets are a little tricky but by no means difficult to use, had it installed in about a minute.
Cons: the mounting brackets are kinda low quality, if they were designed a little better I would give it 5 stars.
Overall Review: Fits perfectly in my SilverStone ML03B Micro ATX case. if it were 2 mm taller it wouldn't fit. If you have this case, this is the fan for you
Pros: its the same footprint as your average AV components, blends in with them as well. looks great on my AV shelving.
Cons: its a tight fit but i was able to fit in my bluray drive. just enough room between it and the power supply for the sata/power plugs. you'd better have 90deg plugs or forget it.
Overall Review: installed three SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm case fans in the side of the case and they are very quiet. also installed a Scythe SCSK-1100 cpu heatsink, just barely clears the top crossmember, fits perfectly. i give it 4 stars because its not the highest quality case in the world, but for $50 it is very good.
Pros: very quiet as advertised
Cons: not crazy about the yellow color
Overall Review: put three of these in a low profile HTPC case and one in the power supply. the four fans together are quieter than the one that i replaced in the power supply.
Pros: I had researched this elsewhere and came here to get it. name here is misleading because it is a Bluetooth car kit. period. don't know why they mention ipod or iphone. Kensington doesn't on their site. It supports A2DP and handsfree profiles. exactly what I wanted. I am using it with a Samsung Jack (i637) phone, w/16gb SDHC... phone charges using the USB cord plugged into this thing, an added plus. no need for another cig lighter & charger.
Cons: Do iPod's or iPhones have bt? i dunno... i don't have either. newegg should fix the description
I'm getting some static coming through my amp.. I think it is probably because the cigarette light is cruddy.
motorola S9 earphones don't charge off of this thing; light blinks green but doesn't stay on...
Overall Review: I've got this thing connected directly into an amplifier in my work van. I am going to end up hardwiring this thing to a relay connected to my 4ga distro block that i'm using for my amp. all the buttons you need are on the remote so you can hide this thing and not know its there.
If you've got a phone that supports A2dp, an extra amp lying around, and a junky car that you don't want to make a mark for thieves, this is a great solution. leave your cheap am/fm radio in there and use your phone for volume control.
Pros: big. fast. relatively cheap. i have a WD 1TB drive and this one benchmarks slightly faster than the WD drive.
Cons: it was a tiny bit louder than my other drives, but once my case closed i can't hear it over the fans...
Pros: good price, zero dead pixels (yey), big and plenty bright
Cons: i'd prefer a 2nd dvi input but for the price i can't complain one bit
Overall Review: i was worried about the 250 cd/m2 spec however the brightness is more than enough. I had to lower the factory brightness level to suit me. i had the benq q20ws before this and it served me well.
Pros: Price is unbeatable.
Cons: 2 dead pixels, one bright, one dim. meh... couldn't get my digital cable channels to show up, knology sucks though.
Overall Review: my mom needed a new tv for her bedroom so i looked to find the cheapest flat screen 25"+ i could find. look no further. $100 cheaper than the cheapest 26" lcd at walmart, 'nuff said.
Pros: its cheap, small.
Cons: DOA. this thing is too cheap to warrant postage to mail back so I opened it up. one of the wires from the cord was not soldered to the board. about to see if i can rig this thing back to life
Overall Review: Even though it was DOA there was a QC Passed sticker on the pcb mocking me.
Pros: Works great with my Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe mobo / Athlon64 X2 4800+
Cons: Won't automatically work at 2-3-3-6. Have to set it manually. Once you do that, it runs full speed, haven't had it crash yet so its looking good.
Overall Review: remember the settings are tCL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS when setting in the bios.
Pros: Very cool looking. get flash mem slots on your box and be able to keep your floppy. faster copying from my memstick than tethering my camera.
Cons: Can't make everyone happy. Have to dig up my memstick adapter to use my memstick duo.
Pros: Does the job powering 4 hard drives, dual 7900 video cards and an athlonXP x2 4800+. Haven't tested the leads with my DMM but my mobo is an asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe which is reported to be tempermental, and I've had absolutely no problems.
Cons: wish it had modular plugs... but didn't feel like shelling out for the 600W version just for that.
Pros: Nice texture, great price. plain and simple, it does the job.
Cons: the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is TOO big. this thing is massive! its like a tablecloth on my desk! The smaller one was backordered and this one is only a couple bucks more. I might cut a couple of inches of it.
Overall Review: overall, I like it.
