Pros: Cheap, color coded, fast free shipping.
Cons: Apparently too cheap. Ive bought HDMI from mprice, blockbuster, and have a few from when I worked at Dish. All cheaper unbranded cables, I too, agree that the philosophy of "the more expensive, the better" is complete junk. But I must have received a bad batch of these, all three pop hiss and crackle from PS3 to TV, or 360 to TV. There are white screen flashes which also cause noise. When that is not occurring, there are rgb pixels going off everywhere, especially noticable over black screen. Went back to previous unbranded cable, and no issues.
Overall Review: Not worth the cost of shipping them back, I'm sure. Maybe they will work well as short color coded ropes...
Pros: Hard to mess up screws, unless the bag isn't sealed properly, and they go everywhere in the shipping box. Can't we just get bare drives shipped with four screws? I mean, these things can cost a bit after shipping. I would pay an extra dollar or two on every hard drive, IF it came with screws.
Pros: This is a pretty useful tool. My roommate was complaining that my pc running 24/7 was making the power bill astronomical. I got this, and measured it, called the power company for our rates, and figured out how much it cost to run my PC monthly. If it were to run at 50% the whole month, it would be $15. Thank you 80 Plus Certified PSU. Although my usage is much lower (runs as a media server while not in use), I agreed to pay the extra 15 dollars a month, and allowed him to use this tool to figure out what may be the root of the crazy power bill. (I vote refrigerator)
Cons: It is quite large, was hard to get a decent spot on my UPS.
