SILVERSTONE ST1200 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This ran 3 GTX 470 cards with an overclocked i7 and then an overclocked 6-xore Xeon for just over 3 years before it exploded. Upon its explosion with black smoke everywhere, it didn't kill anything else in the computer.

Cons: I bought this near the end of October 2011, and in the middle of April 2014, it died. I had even gone down from 3 GTX 470 cards to one GTX 770. The capacitors seem to have aged really rapidly.

Other Thoughts: It sort of makes sense that this exploded after the 3-year warranty ended because I didn't need that much power after upgrading to more efficient tech. I would have been very disappointed having purchased a power supply of more sensible output that died while being still able to run my latest tech.

Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The base pulls right off, so you actually don't need to void the warranty to use this as an external adapter. I did actually rip apart the enclosure, though, because inside is a 7200.14 drive that does way better as an internal hard disk. I put in place of it a 5900 RPM 2TB drive. Much better.

Cons: As with any external drive that's tough to get into and has its warranty voided by opening, if the hard drive is still good but the USB adapter goes nuts, you have to choose between getting out the drive to save your data but then being out an adapter or sending the thing back for a replacement but losing your files. I solved this problem by completely voiding the warranties of both the enclosure and the hard drive. 'Murica.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why Seagate would put their fastest 3TB drive into an external enclosure. It just seems like those fast hard drives belong inside a PC where they can stretch their legs. It seems like maybe a 3TB drive is such overkill that it naturally must be used as a storage drive. So, there's no need to worry about how fast it is. In that sense, its suffocation then seems reasonable.

RAVPower 5600 mAh External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank for most Smartphones and other USB-charged Devices
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is the smallest packaging for a portable charger. I had an HTC Evo 4G with an extended battery, and this charger could recharge that 3500mAh thing around twice if needed. The 2100mAh battery in my LG Optimus G now can be recharged twice also with some to spare.

Recharging this power bank takes about as much time as recharging a fancy cell phone, so I use two chargers to charge a cell phone and this and then have a backup available wherever I go.

Cons: The instruction manual should explain the use of the button. Double-tap to turn on/off the flashlight, I figured out, but I see that when I tap the button once, lights come on indicating the remaining charge as X/4. This must have some auto off feature since the lights shut off after a few seconds but the power bank keeps charging. This slight confusion isn't a big enough con for any eggs to be removed, though. It's one button. There's no other interface to this thing, so it is pretty reasonable. Just not reasonable enough.

Other Thoughts: At a concert one time, a microphone being used to record the show died. I whipped out the charger, gave it to the DJ, and saved the day. Now on the podcast, I'll get a producer credit.
