Antec Basiq BP430 430W Continuous Power ATX12V Version 2.2 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -80mm rear exhaust fan which keeps airflow in mind for top mounted psu cases
-80+ Certified helps the electric bill...but most of all converts power efficiently to reduce heat.
-A great replacement for retail PCs with dead power supplies (leaves plenty of room)
-Very quiet for a 80mm ball bearing fan

Cons: -No mesh sheeths to cover the psu cables (at this point I'm nitpicking)

Other Thoughts: I have owned 2 of these in a 10 year span, and only had to buy a second psu because I sold my PC with the first antec. The 1st one is 7 years old now and I still haven't gotten a call to replace it. The second one is a year old and of course runs perfectly fine. If you build workstation PCs for businesses buy these in bulk the DOA rate is literally 1 out of 100 and that's even pushing it. Always clean out your exhaust fan anytime you get a hold of an air compressor it helps extend the life of the psu and most importantly the fan

Verbatim DataLifePlus 8.5GB 2.4X DVD+R DL White Inkjet Printable 20 Packs Spindle Disc Model 95123
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's Verbatim, what more can I say. They have been making data storage media since the 80's and it shows. These are built for long life archival storage and they mean it. I have Verbatim double layer DataLifePlus discs from 7 years ago that still work perfectly, even with scratches (I can't say the same for some knock off brand I bought 2-3 years ago). These are also made in Singapore, which is the better of the 2 plants that produce DVD media storage for Verbatim. I haven't had a coaster (leaving out human error) in 2 years, and even that one was suspect to a bad DVD burner, in this day and age it is hard to find a sure thing, but Verbatim is and always will be reliable media storage.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These are perfect for burning XGD2/XGD3 (MKM-001-00 - Made In Singapore). Anyone with any sort of computer/console knowledge knows that KProbe should be taken with a grain in salt. Always verify your burns in ImgBurn.

Corsair Force Series GT 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -SATA 6
-low power consumption
-sandforce controller (the best in the game right now)
-accurate max read/write speeds as advertized
-WEI 7.9 (works alot better than the SSD it replaced ten-fold)
-the best SSD you can buy in its class

Cons: -the most expensive 60GB SSD when it's not on sale
-Corsair sent me the wrong size screws to mount the SSD to the adapter!! (just like someone else mentioned as well). I personally could care less, but I would address this issue, as people will definitely care more than I will.

Other Thoughts: Amazing SSD. Ran quick max read/write speeds in HD Tune, once I seen max reads AND writes over 500MB/s, even at 50% capacity, so I stopped the test. Since I received the incorrect mounting screws, I mounted my SSD w/ 2 screws to an open 5.25" drive bay to hold it in place. Corsair please send me a case badge instead of replacement screws!
