This review is from: EZOPower 3-Pack Extra Long 10ft Micro-USB 2in1 Sync and Charge USB Data Cable for LG G2, Optimus F6, Enact VS890, Exalt VN360, Optimus F3; Motorola Moto X and Other Smartphone (Blue/ Green/ Orange)
Pros: 10' long and great charging. Nobody who uses these cables has slow charging, which is very hard to find with USB cables of this length. Great for charging phones from a distance, or charging a ps4 or xbox controller while playing. USB2.0 data transfer has been just fine when I've used it.
Cons: They wear out eventually like any USB-Micro connector, but no faster than any I've found. I damaged one by catching my foot on it while walking past and it yanked out of a ps4 controller. I don't expect any different of USB-Micro, and I'd rather the cable be damaged than the port on the device it is connected to. Hopefully USB3.1 will prove more durable.
Other Thoughts: Mine have all come in the same three colors, which are not as described.
Orange - looks like a tiny extension cord.
Green - not as neon as the pictured green.
Carolina Tarheel blue - There is no black cable, I give this cable away (Boo Tarheels).
Pros: The braided cable is nice, a little stiff.
Cons: I ordered 3 and they all have a loose fit in all phones. They won't charge a Samsung device at all, and they have to be just right to charge in an HTC or LG phone. Terrible, worse than generic cables from a gas station.
Other Thoughts: They seem worn out from the start, straight to the garbage can. Maybe it's a bad batch, but this is the most useless product I've obtained in my 13 years on NewEgg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The PWM fan can be stopped completely, this has been rare for the 4-pin PWM fans I've encountered. I control with SpeedFan and setting the fan to 3% stops it entirely. Anything lower makes it run wide open.
The heat pipes are pressed tightly where they contact the CPU. It looks to be a better job than I've seen on some other direct-contact HSFs like this one.
Cons: Not the easiest mounting system, some will struggle with it. It seems very stable once mounted, but using the double sided tape to hold plastic tubes... Well, I got a chuckle thinking of the easily frustrated and clumsy people who will be furious.
Other Thoughts: The contact surface of this HSF has a light texture. I would think a smooth surface would be best, and that is what I am used to. Maybe Arctic knows something I don't.
I have the CPU passively cooled when idle and most times when not gaming. Temps stay low with a slow running case fan, using SpeedFan to automatically vary the CPU fan based on core temps. Having the fan stopped when it isn't needed, saves a lot of dust buildup and a little power and noise.
