SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold (SS-650KM Active PFC F3) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Hasw

Pros: Very quiet power supply, the fan almost never turns on even when stressing my machine to the maximum (Radeon 5870 + i5-2500K). Plenty of cable and lenght is just what I need, and you can use only those you need since this power supply is fully modular.

Cons: The only con I can find is obviouly the price. But you got what you pay for so you will be satified if you buy this.

Other Thoughts: The next generation (X660) is out for more than a year now and Newegg does not carry it, so it's a hard sell at 160$ when you know you can get a latest generation at the same price.

Samsung Star S5230 50 MB Black Unlocked GSM Touch Screen Phone with 3.2MP Camera/ 10 Hours Talk Time/ Bluetooth 3.0

Pros: It's small and light, basic phone. Seems study enought to keep it right in my pocket, no case. It's unlocked so I will be able to use it as a backup phone whatever phone compagny I'm with.

Cons: Took off 2 eggs because of it's lack of features. As I said it's a very basic phone, with a very low level of features.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews said they had to recharge sometimes the phone after less than a day of use. However, I never experienced that. The reason is quite simple : there's simply nothing else to do other than to talk with that phone.

Simple to start : charge, put your old SIM card, and that's it, no activation or whatever ;)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1- Huge capacity.
2- Very silent, I could only hear it when spinning up in an external enclosure. Now it's inside the PC, it's dead silent.
3- Performance on par with other 5400rpm drive (it should NOT be used as a system drive).

Cons: 1- Warranty "only" 3 years
2- 5400rpm drive's in general are not very fast, just enought for storage, just like this one.

Other Thoughts: The price of hard drives has doubled within less than 6 months because of the flood in Thailand (thanks globalisation), you should wait a bit before buying a hard drive, you might regret it in 6 month, maybe buy a smaller one for now.

To the guy complaining for his server, use the RE4 edition drives they are meant to use in server, 24/7.
