CORSAIR CX series CX750 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price for 750W 80 PLUS Bronze

Cons: Terrible coil whine

Other Thoughts: The whine is a consistent high frequency, but it's loud, and it's not just coming physically from the coil in the PSU. The noise gets into speakers and is audible on some headphones (even with a usb soundcard). I'll have to try a better interface and DAC to see if the problems go away.

ASUS Laptop UL50 Series UL50Vt-X1 Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.30 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce G210M + Intel GMA 4500MHD 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Great Battery Life
- Decent overall performance
- Nice keyboard w/ Numpad
- Very lightweight

Cons: - Terrible screen viewing angles
- inaccurate touchpad (bad multitouch as well)
- "Stiff" touchpad buttons. single-button design.
- somewhat weak build quality
- Asus "necessary" bloatware

Other Thoughts: I didn't expect the screen to fail in just 2 weeks. I suspect it's due to the flimsy chassis on the lid...the backlight is completely broken. Out of the 20 reviews here on Newegg, the one (perhaps only) bad review, I had dismissed mentioned their screen failure and a warranty nightmare. If i can't get this returned to Newegg, I may have well wasted $650.
