SILVERSTONE ST1500 1500W ATX 12V 2.3 & EPS 12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Active PFC Full Modular Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I wish.

Cons: This company is a joke! This power supply blew up, shorted a rail and fried a motherboard. Silverstone's reply was "take a look at our RMA policy" MSI will not RMA the motherboard because of damage due to electrical failure, Silverstone will not do anything about it, now the issue will be going to court unless they can pull their head out... I'm sure that the U.S. consumer safety product safety commission will be delighted to hear that their products do not have proper safety devices in place to prevent a potential fire.

Other Thoughts: Silverstone has my contact information, I encourage them to get this issue resolved.

Kingston SSDNow V100 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: You get what you pay for. I have 16 of these drives in the field, slowly but surely they are coming back to me unrecognizable, no data recovery possible. There is a firmware upgrade available, but guess what? It erases the whole disk! Kind of hard to explain to a customer that I need to fix something that hasn't broken yet, and Kingston is a major pain to deal with. Their return policy is a joke. I will NEVER be dealing with Kingston again based on this experience with their rude tech support and "sorry, nothing we can do" attitude.

DIAMOND 7970PE53GDD Double Black Diamond Edition Overclocked Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well, AMD's drivers definitely do not belong in this section. Single monitor? All games, no framerate drops.
Crossfire is smoother on GCN than on VLIW4 or 5, oh and bitcoin monster! Each one of these cards can generate about 90 dollars worth of coins a month when overclocked properly!

Cons: Here's what stands out in my mind: I have a standard diamond card clocked at 1200mhz core with just a little bit of overvolting. There's really no reason to buy this expensive version of the SAME card. Honestly buy the cheapest reference cooler design you can, and overclock the snot out of it.
