UNU Enerpak Vault Black 11000 mAh Dual Port Battery Pack PB-01-11000BS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This thing has enough power to last 2 days of ridiculously heavy phone use. Seriously, you won't run out of power if you try- unless you forget to charge it up. Can even charge my tablet. Plastic exterior seems sturdy enough, but may crack if drooped from a good height. Ports are not loose, overall very good quality construction. For under 50 bucks you won't be disappointed.

Cons: My only real issue is the battery indicator lights. They are nearly invisible in bright light, although not a big issue. The bigger problem with them is that power remaining isn't linear at all. With 4 indicator lights I assumed 2 lights lit means 25-50% power left, but once it dropped to a single light it was dead within 20 minutes. Pro tip: 2 lights means charge it tonight.

CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 850 watts and 80+ gold rating powers my rig much better. Love the fact that its modular, I should've gotten that in the first place... The all black cabling looks great. Its really quiet if that's something you care about. And of course Corsair's warranty is absolutely amazing.

Cons: As with the other Corsair psu I've owned, the cables are VERY short. If you have a full tower its going to cause problems. I needed a long extension for the 8 pin ATX (I have a bottom mounted psu) and the 24 pin took a lot of work to get in and still be hidden behind the mobo. You have been warned.

Other Thoughts: Got this at a local store when I thought my other psu had died (turned out to be a different problem) but I was due for a power supply upgrade anyway...

Logitech G110 LED Backlighting Gaming Keyboard

5 out of 5 eggs budget gaming keyboard 04/29/2012

This review is from: Logitech G110 LED Backlighting Gaming Keyboard

Pros: backlighting, good build quality, macros - more than anyone should need, media keys, volume controls (I love the roller compared to buttons), ability to run headset cable under the keyboard and out of the way, USB and headset/mic ports if you use such things - my tower is right on my desk so I don't use them, customer support - *see other*

Amazing gaming keyboard for the price! (especially if u get it on sale) May not be mechanical but I don't have the money for a good mechanical keyboard...

Cons: Uhh, the mic mute button only works if your headset is plugged into the keyboard, not your sound card; but what headset doesn't have an inline mic control?... Also kinda wish the back legs raised it a little more. These are minor, no real cons

Other Thoughts: The customer support is the reason I write this review. I won't go into detail, but the media & volume controls inexplicably started acting in a very strange way on mine after a few months. I always dread dealing with tech support, as many people surely do, but with Logitech it was a painless experience. They walked me through all the steps I had already tried (I'm a tech guru) and concluded the product was defective; a new one is currently on its way free of charge :)
