SILVERSTONE Strider Gold S Series ST75F-GS 750W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I put this in my new build Silverstone Fortress FT-05 case.
The small size made cable routing a breeze around the PS.
The included flat cables made cable routing through the case easy.

Cons: After a year, the computer started to crash to black and restart irregularly. Sometimes after playing for ten minutes, sometimes after an hour. Occasionally it would crash right after start up. I spent six weeks sending parts like the MB in to be checked as I did not think the PS could go bad. Finally I swapped out the PS for a known good one and the crashing stopped. My best guess is that while under full load, something in the PS went bad causing the voltage to waver or fail. Then the MB crashed. This is the first trouble I have had with a Silverstone product, but I will be wary in the future of their PS products. This is supposed to be a Gold standard product!

Other Thoughts: While rated at 750W, be aware this PS has only two PCI 8-pin connectors. I used this PS as my OCed 980 Ti graphics card can draw 425W at full bore. This PS has lots of spare capacity, but it is not intended for SLI use I think.

Lavalier Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs 10/18/2015

This review is from: Lavalier Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone

Pros: none

Cons: Sounds great as long as the mike is 1/2" from your mouth.
Useless as a lapel mike.
Requires high gain input but has poor omnidirectional performance. If gain is high enough, it will pick up major ambient noise.
On/off switch mentioned in the online description and the written instructions not present on the unit.
Took a prodding email to the supplier after waiting a week to get them to sent it to me. Certainly not what I am used to from a company associated with Newegg.
