Creative Sound Blaster ZxR PCIe 124dB SNR Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nice box

Cons: It says that it supports optical digital out. This is, at best, a half truth. What they mean by 'supports optical digital out' is 'doesn't support optical digital out with games'


They are selling a 'gaming sound card' with 'digital optical output', but you can't use games with the 'digital optical output'.

REALLY! If that's their definition of 'true' I'd hate to see what they consider a lie.

NEVER NEVER NEVER buy anything from these liars.

PCM Powercom KING PRO KIN-1500AP 1500 VA 5 Outlets UPS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Causes more failures than it prevents 08/15/2011

This review is from: PCM Powercom KING PRO KIN-1500AP 1500 VA 5 Outlets UPS

Pros: Cheap and big.

Cons: Causes more downtime than it cures. For some reason, its wanting to go onto battery backup even though I've got power. Then it runs out of juice and brings my computer down. It theoretically has monitoring software, but only if you have an RS-232 port available. There is absolutely no way to see why it thinks its switching to backup and there is absolutely no way for it to shut your computer down. In order to get back up I unplugged the darn thing.

Other Thoughts: Opti-UPS has the same problems and I think is just a different nameplate on the same piece of junk.

So: Unreliable and impossible to manage. Waste of money IMO.
