Pros: Good quality product. Does what it's supposed to and nothing that it's not
Cons: Short cables and it's not available on newegg to check how long the cables are...
Pros: Solid, simple, clean, LONG CABLES. Lowest fluctuating power supply in any of the lines on this supply.
Cons: absolutely none... nothing
Overall Review: I'll never buy anything else again... I ventured into the cheaper ones recently and paid the price... so to speak
Pros: Love the red annodized copper fins (they're copper out to the end).
Super quiet, can't even hear this running with the case cover closed up.
Red leds :) - although they are kinda weak and really would only add accent lighting to an already red lit case.
EASY install :) :) ;)
Cheap... 11$ to keep your VGA alive... show me the dotted line!
Cons: Coveres up the next PCI slot on most boards... but this wasn't an issue for me in the least.
The RAM heatsinks do not fully cover the RAM chips... I'm not a structural engineer, but I am a Design Engineer, and my limited understanding of heat dissipation/flow would suggest that if 1/2 of the chip is being dissapated faster than the other 1/2 it would cause warping or something... I didn't put them on. Beside the fact that I couldn't because the fins on the heatsink were in the way.
Note: Who really cares about the heatsinks... the wind coming off the heatsink fan should cool them sufficiently
Pros: White finish is neat looking in a case :). Has a 120 mm fan on a budget cooler :).
Cons: Not for a full/mid tower case. The cables are really short. I should have measured it and posted here but alas... UPS has it on it's way back to CALI.
Gauge of the wires was less than those on the PSU that I removed from the stock HP case and that PSU was from "who-knows-where-unpronounaceable-manufacturer"
Overall Review: Encouragement to newegg... list the PSU's with a cable length or compatibility with X,Y,Z case sizes. PLZ :)
Pros: Running on Windows 7. Absolutely easy to use, easy to install, easy to love. W7 was unable to find a data-base driver for it so I installed the one from the included disk w/o the app. It didn't seem to work at all like that in WMC so I went back and installed the KWorld app too. Man that's awesome too. It's light-weight, clean, and efficient interface... no flashy menu scrolling, or whatever with WMC. I'm perfectly happy using this adapter and the included app. Some notes of importance:
+Windows 7 = yes
+Attached to a regular atannea signal (with singal amp in the line)
+Requires driver & app installation
+App is clean and simple
+I can drap the app screen down to a quarter of my desktop and keep working on my projects :)
+Automatic channel search picked up 28 more channels than the automatic channel search in MCE (when I finally got it working) did.
Cons: App doesn't let me create a favorites only list or re-name the channels to things such as "Fox", "NBC", etc to aid in browsing the channels. I could eliminate the channels I don't often watch but then if I ever wanted to watch them again I'd have to wait through the automatic channel search.
Pros: This little rig was on sale a few weeks back and I thought I'd give it a shot. It's really been worth the money. My gaming/music listening/TV watching experience has been enhanced significantly. I combined these speakers with my HT Omega Striker 7.1 and it was really a pleasure to set up.
Cons: miles of wires >.< I wish it was wireless... but likely prefer to not be setting up individual power supplies/batteries.
Overall Review: Don't expect to pump the bumpin tunes with these. The bass just doesn't thump like a bigger speaker will. I didn't purchase these speakers for that purpose, however, I couldn't resist testing it. They produce a nice clean bass for typical movie watching, TV, gaming. Crysis sure sounds better :)
