Easy setup, easy to use, no annoying noises!
Pros: - Quiet quiet quiet - Screen has lots of info and is easy to understand - Lights aren't too bright - More outlets than I could ever need
Cons: - Honestly, none that I can see so far. Doesn't look like much so maybe a sleeker design would be nice?
Overall Review: Over the last few years I've had lots of scares with power flickers, and honestly it's just annoying to have to keep starting your computer up, so I figured it was time to get a UPS. Needed one that was at least 1000 VA for my gaming PC, needed one compatible with my Active PFC power supply, so this one fit the bill nicely at a reasonable price. I paid about $140 for it. It does everything it says it should do and I haven't had any problems with power flickers since I hooked it up. A couple of things to address some of the other reviews. This thing operates nearly silently. There is a slight noise from it being such a heavily electronic piece of equipment (think the high-pitched whine of a CRT television) but I can literally only hear it if I put my ear right up next to the thing. I've seen a few people say that it dies after three years. Well three years just happens to be when they say to replace the battery inside the thing, so......DURR? My power supply is a 620W power supply and the total full load of my PC including peripherals is around 400W. Usually my load is just under 200W. With a game running, I have somewhere between 20 and 35 minutes of battery power depending on the load, and when the system is sitting idle I have nearly an hour. Sitting here, writing this review, I have Chrome and Mass Effect Andromeda running along with a number of background programs and it's sitting at 33-34 minutes of runtime. Definitely would recommend.
Some false advertising
Pros: - compact size - decent sound quality - prize - okay capacity
Cons: - included headphone are terrible - there is no micro SD expansion slot - controls are horrible
Overall Review: For $26 I have no business expecting more out of this, but it's okay for what it is. I use my old Classic iPod in my car and wanted something to use in my house or at the gym because the iPod doesn't hold much charge anymore. This has enough storage space to hold all my music but a few things to note for prospective buyers. Although the listing advertises a Micro SD expansion slot, there is NOT an expansion slot. I now have a brand-new 32GB Micro SD card I have no use for. The headphones this came with are cheap knockoff earbuds so buy your own. The user interface is horrible and the center button on the replica clickwheel doesn't actually do anything, but I managed to figure it out with little trouble. There is no manual included by the way, so good luck. But the positives: It looks alright, and functions as intended. The sound quality is great for less than thirty bucks and battery life is fairly impressive. I'm satisfied based on what I paid for it but if you're a stickler for high-quality you're gonna want to look elsewhere for a name-brand MP3 player.
Pros: - Small form factor, won't interfere with RAM slots - Looks very slick - Cools excellently - Compatible with almost everything
Cons: - So hard to install
Overall Review: I bought this for an HTPC build but it ended being a hair too tall for the case. I kept it just in case I could use it later. Glad I did, because I received a defective liquid cooler for my gaming rig and didn't want to be bothered with getting a new one. The stock AMD cooler blocked my first RAM slot (ASRock Pro4 B350) and although this cooler is designed for Mini ITX I decided to give it a whirl. It works like a dream and I can finally use all four of my RAM slots. I've never experienced temps above 60C since installing it and it's quieter even than AMD's cooler which I thought was impossible. One thing I will say against it is that this cooler is a pain to install. I was 100% certain I was going to crack my motherboard trying to get the screws to go into the backplate. You have to push incredibly hard to get them in there. Not for the squeamish.
Great sound quality
Pros: - Look very fancy - Foldable microphone - Amazing bass - Comfortable on the ears
Cons: - Like every other Viper product, the braided cord is annoyingly stiff
Overall Review: Saw these headphones on deep discount and bought them to round out my Viper set. I've never had a set of USB headphones before so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was surprised that it was basically plug and play. They fit great, even on my Dumbo ears, and the cushioning is ample so I don't get headaches like with some sets of headphones I've owned before. I like that the microphone folds into the left earmuff because I rarely use it. The sound quality seems very good, especially the bass. I'm hearing things in my games that I've never heard before. And I know it doesn't matter because I can't see them, but I like the red LEDs on the earmuffs.
Got exactly what I ordered
I ordered two micro SD card adapters, which are hard to find by themselves and I didn't want to pay ten bucks in a store to get an adapter with a micro SD card I wouldn't use. Got the pair for less than three bucks with free shipping. Couldn't be more satisfied with this seller. I even received them quicker than I thought I would.
The product arrived well-packaged and as described. The product worked flawlessly. I bought ink for my Brother all-in-one printer and it proved to be compatible and has been working as I hoped it would. I would definitely buy from this seller again.
