Most Favorable Review

Got what I paid for, and maybe more

APEVIA CF312S-BK 120 mm Case Fan (3-pk)
APEVIA CF312S-BK 120 mm Case Fan (3-pk)

Pros: - Nice and quiet - Get what I paid for, and maybe more. - Three sets of 4x fan screws were very very handy.

Cons: - I did not get EXACTLY what the picture showed. The advertised picture showed only a 3-pin female connection, with a Molex-to-3pin adapter as an accessory. Instead, the Molex was soldered together with the 3-pin on the +12V and ground wires with 3-inches of wire. This saves cost during production of course... but it was NOT EXACTLY what was advertised in the pictures.

Overall Review: - I'm using a case without windows, which obviously mean RGB is not a priority. This fan does what is needed pretty silently. - Molex wires are now dangling freely while the 3-pin is in use, despite proper cable management. I can live with it if I don't see it.

Most Critical Review

It works well, but magnet is meh. Manufacturing might be dubious.

TACKLIFE RG01-Upgrade Reacher Grabber Tool, 0°-180° Angled Arm, 90° Rotating Head

Pros: It does grab 12 pound objects... But shape matters

Cons: Magnet is weak.

Overall Review: It can lift 12lb fat objects, provided that it's thick. Otherwise a heavy object will easily slip through. I have a picture of it holding a 12.5 weight, and it tilted before it fell. my test was asking too much of it, frankly, so I'm pleased in this regard. The magnet leaves lots to be desired. It can't even pick up my keychain with one car key and an aluminum (means it's light) carbineer, which was 1.8oz total. The magnet can easily slide out of is place, as shown in my picture. The joint to rotate the arm automatically engaged at 45 degrees. However, it doesn't automatically engage at 90 degree consistently, which I think it's either a manufacturing flaw or a design flaw. The head is supposed to rotate, and it is extremely unintuitive to do so. You can't just rotate it in place. You have to gently yank the head away from the body (not dislocate it), rotate it and reinsert it.

Coboc LP45TX4-18 Sleeved 18 inch 4-pin Molex LP4  to Five(5)  x  4-pin TX4 PWM Fan Power Splitter Adapter Converter Cable with one TX4 Female for RPM Feedback
Coboc LP45TX4-18 Sleeved 18 inch 4-pin Molex LP4 to Five(5) x 4-pin TX4 PWM Fan Power Splitter Adapter Converter Cable with one TX4 Female for RPM Feedback

Pros: - No frills... - Sleeved! Nice little touch.

Cons: - The +12V Molex pin was a little loose, see "Other" below.

Overall Review: - All five +12V lines are crammed in parallel to the +12V Molex pin, and likewise the five ground lines are crammed in parallel to the ground Molex pin. Simple circuit design, no? Took a while to jiggle the Molex pins to the power supply, because the +12V Molex pin is loose all the wires are jammed into a very small space. But once set in place, I am not likely to pull it out again anyways. - This accessory is a lifesaver for my really old motherboard with only two 3-pin SYS_FAN header (case fan, chassis fan, take your pick) apart my a 4-pin "CPU_FAN" header. I was able to add 4 (previously 5) fans to my case, which now provides much better airflow than my old case. In case you're wondering, I'm using the other SYS_FAN header to drive a water pump for my new AIO, whose fan is plugged in the 4-pin CPU_FAN.

Not bad. Seller got in touch with me a while after my package was delivered

Yes I would recommend the seller. My item (thermal grease) shipped through snail mail, so I wasn't expecting it to arrive in haste, but my item arrived without damage. After receiving my package, the seller contacted me if everything was okay, albeit a little over 3 weeks since the product's arrival. But there's no drama involved, so it was overall a good experience with the seller.
