CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Modular. Quiet. Corsair reputation for quality.

Cons: Doesn't live up to warranty.

Other Thoughts: The last few years, the quality had slipped. HX650 PSUs that used to run well past 5 years are now dying at 3 years. Most observable on PCs that run 24/7 or 80% of the time. RAID failure is the first symptom. Crash on CD burner use is next. Boot failure is last. Still the best but I now replace them more frequently. 5 year warranty is not meant for 5 years of 24/7 use. Corsair is playing odds that most PCs are not run like this.

macally G-S350SU3B2 Aluminum 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Unusual find for an external HDD case with USB 3.0, 1394b, & eSATA. Just what I needed although I will probably use the USB 3.0 connection most of the time on my newer machines.

Cons: On/Off button is backlit with a blue LED which blinks subtly during drive access - not bright enough to be plainly discerning. Back panel is simulated aluminum on plastic. Stand could fit tighter - it has some wobbly play, not significant. Premium price for all the ports but then premium number of ports.

Other Thoughts: Thunderbolt would have been a welcome and needed addition for me.

LG 27EA83-D Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have two side-by-side. Gorgeous colors and sharpness. Brilliantly bright, Well constructed stand. If I could afford it, I would change every monitor on all my computers to these.
I am replacing two 5 year old Eizo LCDs (24" & 22"). They are essentially dim compared to these LGs. When they were new, they were never this bright.

Cons: I had a bad DVI cable for which I had to RMA the whole package. It happens.

Other Thoughts: Use the best Dual DVI or DP cables you can with this monitor. It makes a difference.
