CORSAIR CX-M series CX650M 650W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Semi-Modular Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Not a lot to say about this except that it gets the job done very well.
650W is plenty for a mid to upper mid-level gaming machine.
Running i7, 16GB, nVida 970, 2 SSD's, 2 HDs, 1 external drive, 5 fans, 1 Corsair cpu water cooler, and no issues with power.

What I find on PSU's if you don't have to split off any of the power cables then it should be enough to power your rig. It's when you start splitting off power is where you'll have issues.

Like the modular cables for building the unit. Makes running the cables much easier.

Flattened modular cables make it easy to hide and route cables

Well vented back allows for easy cleaning. In my area this fine desert dust gets into everything so a twice or more a year cleaning is always needed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The main power cable is fairly long and I could see situations where it would get in the way but a few zip ties cleans it up quickly.

5 out of 5 eggs Simple and Quick 11/30/2016

This review is from: Belkin N300 Wall-Mount Wi-Fi Range Extender (F9K1015)

Pros: Biggest thing here is simplicity, simplicity.
Simple 4 step process with easy to follow instructions
Range is pretty good not having any antennas. Some may like not having antennas since it makes it look sleeker and cannot get broken off by kids.
Light indicator lets you know if it's connected and working properly

Cons: I guess not having 5Ghz could be a con but I find keeping the bands completely separate really helps. 5Ghz does not have the penetrating power as 2.4Ghz so placement of this device would sacrifice 1 or the other if you had both bands in a single device.

Again only in White? Clashes with my color scheme. Nothing a little spray paint won't fix.

Other Thoughts: I've had little kids find my other range extenders thinking they were toys and break the antennas so lack of an antenna is something you might consider if you have children.

I find getting around 3 bars is the best for these types of extenders. Keep them away from other electronics as well, especially the microwave or AV system.

I have a dual band extender and turned off one off the 2.4Ghz band to get better results. I find separate extenders per band result in better performance with less sacrifices. if you place it for 2.4Ghz you lose 5Ghz strength and vice versa.

Pros: Very simple to setup and get going.
Manual override button if you don't have it setup
Works without setup (noticed others said it didn't)
Long press the power button turns on the Rules set if you don't have the phone handy or in a rush.
GUI is very easy to use especially with multiple devices and external devices.
GUI updated regularly on App Store
Lots of functionality, that gets set in the device and does not require phone to operate once set.
Easily set sunrise/sunset timing
Works with NEST Home/Away, Alexa, and Echo devices.
Integrates in any open source IFTTT device

Plugged power strip of kid's into this is the best thing. Even when on vacation I can safely turn off their devices. Going to get more of these.

Cons: Only comes in white?

Other Thoughts: They must of fixed issues because I don't see the same problem as other reviews.
GUI must be revised especially for Android. Looks like the developers listen to what users want.

Using the Rules I was able to turn my kid's power strip on before they wake up, off when they go to school, and off while they are asleep.
