Best in its class.
Pros: Absolutely dead silent. My previous power supply had a very quiet fan that didn't make any noise, but it had an electronic squeal/whine that drove me crazy! I was afraid I might be in the same boat when getting this fanless unit, but, to my delight, I was wrong. There is absolutely no noise. Even when I put my ear right up to the back of the thing I can't hear anything, not even a squeak of electronic noise.
Cons: Price (but you get what you pay for). Some of the connectors seemed unusually stiff and difficult to fully connect with my components.
Overall Review: It is exactly what I was looking for, and is more than capable of powering my GTX460 1GB, Core i5 750, 4GB DDR3-2000, 120GB Vertex 2 SSD, 1TB Western Digital Black HDD, and Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD3. If you can get over the sticker shock, this thing is a must have for modest gaming systems requiring two PCI-Express 8-pin power cables owned by a silent computing enthusiast. There are many reviews of the 400W version around the 'net. Do a little research and you'll find that this is one of the best power supplies in its wattage class, not to mention in the silent/passive class. You really do get the best of both worlds (as long as you are willing to pay the price of admission).
A steal for the price
Pros: Height adjustment LED backlight Very bright Good color quality
Cons: Viewing angle not quite up there with -VA and IPS panels.
Overall Review: For the price of this thing, it is a great deal! You'll have trouble finding another monitor with height adjustments at this price point.
It works (a little effort may be required)
Pros: Class 6 flash memory performance and huge capacity (great for shooting HD video).
Cons: $/GB is higher compared to 16GB class 6 cards. The physical size of the card was ever so slightly thicker than normal and it actually got stuck in my camcorder's card slot! It was just one of those typical spring loaded push in push to pop out slots and it just wouldn't spring out. It slid in but didn't come out. I had to use needle nose pliers to pull it out, I thought it broke the card slot. To solve the problem, I had to ram it in and out of my USB multi-card reader to shave it down a bit. Once the plastic on the card was whittled down to normal thickness, it slides in and out of the camcorder with ease.
Overall Review: This card is spec'd to be a class 6 card and it indeed does read as class 6 in my Canon Vixia HF S100 camcorder (unlike some other cards that reviewers here have mentioned). Overall, the price was too high, but it was the cheapest 32GB class 6 SDHC card from a reliable brand available with free shipping so I had no choice. If you don't need one giant card and don't mind carrying an extra, two 16GB class 6 cards would be a better deal than one of these 32GB cards. :(
