Pros: This 500 watt power supply runs beautifully. It is silent, and provides steady power efficiently. The features included and the myriad of connectors provided really make the price to quality ratio (with or even without rebate) such that buying this PSU is a truely excellent choice.
Cons: None what-so-ever.
Other Thoughts: I need to let people know that while I do buy Thermaltake products occasionally because they produce quality products in general, I very recently had an exceptional personal experience with the company. I have never, in all the years I have bought their products, had occasion to correspond with them because I never had one single issue with any of their products. Well, I just had a rebate declined, I won't bore you with the details (you're probably asleep already anyway lol) but the company itself intervened when I complained about it and though I was technically in the wrong, they re-evaluated my rebate situation and approved it anyway (and I have recieved it). That really showed me something. Therefore (and obviously) I highly recommend buying products from Thermaltake (and this particular PSU of course) because they really showed they care about their customers and want repeat business. I already liked them before this, now they have moved toward the very top of my list - sorry Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP
Pros: The obvious: free phone via Google Voice (and/or other services). Once configured properly it works very smoothly, have not had any performance issues with any of the phones in my cordless 3 phone system that some others have reported. It is portable, I have set it up at a different location with a different wireless router and cordless phone system but again, it must be properly configured the first time for it to work seamlessly in different locations (no need to reconfigure though). A very handy and useful device and the price on sale ($39.99) was excellent.
Cons: And now the reason for the 4 egg instead of 5 egg rating (almost dropped it to 3). If you inferred from the Pros section that configuration might be a problem then you were right on the money. Configuring this to work after properly obtaining my free Google Voice (GV) number was actually quite frustrating and rather complicated. While I may not be an expert, I am definitely not a novice, yet I struggled for an unexpected amount of time until it finally configured properly. In the end, a factory reset (4 or 5 times) did the trick and when it came back from that final reset, I repeated the GV configuration procedure as described yet again and it finally configured properly (displaying 'Connected' instead of 'Service Not Configured'). It advertises such an easy, smooth and seamless coordination with GV yet the procedure for me was anything but.
Other Thoughts: Even with the configuration complication, I would still recommend this product because of its utility but I would not recommend it for someone without some significant computer knowledge and patience of course. Then again, maybe you get lucky and the unit configures properly right away on the first try - its possible.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tested all sizes of flash mem, works flawlessly (with the adapter as well) and speeds were as expected depending on what speed/type of chip was put into it, price was very good at 6.99
Cons: While what it does is extremely useful, the cap to it, however, is equally useless because you will lose it as others have aptly suggested already.
Other Thoughts: What a useful and versatile product, I picked up 3 of these. I would suggest getting at least one of these units just to have it - you can trust it will be very handy to you at some point in time.READ FULL REVIEW
