CORSAIR RM Series RM850 850W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Mount on top or bottom of case (with the right case, works pefectly in the cheap but awesome Corsair 200R).

-Silent 95% of the time, and barely audible under heavy load. Seriously, the furnace/AC running in my house is louder than this PSU that I'm sitting right next to.

-If it was any cooler I'd have condensation.

-Good monitoring software

-More than enough cables for your builds

Cons: A little long, so would not advise for a micro ATX case.

Other Thoughts: Seriously , pair this with a Corsair case with a bottom vent (200R) From what I can tell, this setup isolates/eliminates PSU heat/airflow from the rest of your system.

1 out of 5 eggs Not a good router for heavy home network users 12/27/2010

This review is from: Linksys E1000 802.11b/g/n Wireless Broadband Router up to 300Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Setup is easy, either automatically through the included software or manually through the web interface.

If the numbers don't mean anything to you, use the included software for setup.

Cons: This router was a MAJOR downgrade from a 3 year old cheap-o router. My network speeds pretty much were cut in half as soon as a started using the router. Don't even think of streaming movies or copying files between computers or gaming systems using this router. I could probably walk the individual 1s and 0s between the rooms in my house faster than this router will transfer them.

Other Thoughts: I generally enjoy Cisco products, as I am a network technician at a major university, and I understand computer networking.

This review isn't a knock on Cisco/Linksys as a company, simply a review on a single poor product in their line.

YAMAHA YST-FSW050BL2 Advanced YST II & Down-Firing Active Design Subwoofer Single
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs I'm a fan - perfect for the right situation 03/03/2010

This review is from: YAMAHA YST-FSW050BL2 Advanced YST II & Down-Firing Active Design Subwoofer Single

Pros: Simple Setup, All needed cables included, nice sound without being overwhelming. Great for both a small and midsized room. If you have neighbors that would possibly complain about noise, this is a great system. The sounds is deep and rich but not "boomy" (unless you really turn it up). Also, it had a $40-off coupon code when I bought it, so I got it for under $90. Adjustable volume on Sub. Can place anywhere in room, and still have great sound.

Cons: May be underpowered for a large room, or someone that likes their walls to shake.

Like most subs (so this is hardly a con) there's no way to truly turn it off without physically pressing the power button, so could be a little bit of a vampire appliance.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this product. Replaced an existing el cheapo sub, and I could hear the difference the second I turned it on.

Highly recommended. Great Buy.
