NuGiant NSS05 Galaxy Power Surge Strip
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty decent but could be better 07/31/2014

This review is from: NuGiant NSS05 Galaxy Power Surge Strip

Pros: Lots of room for plugs pretty great except for 1 thing (see cons)

Cons: I had 3 3-prong wall warts to plug into this. All 3 of those wall warts had the prongs in the reverse direction making them not possible to plug in without block the other outlet. If I were to design this over, I would have 2 of the 4 wall wart outlets going in the opposite direction- this way you could accommodate both types of 3 prong wall warts.

Other Thoughts: It's really a decent strip for what I paid- it was on sale for $19.25, but I just happened to have 3 remote controlled wall-wart outlets i was plugging into it that had the reverse direction- so i had to use mini 3 prong extension cords.

Antec Minuet350 Piano Black Steel MicroATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W 80PLUS Certified Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: supplemental review

Cons: wish front panel was black

Other Thoughts: After reading some reviews I noticed the following comparison saying that this is the same as the Rosewill R379-M. It is not. The biggest difference is this one has a 80+ efficiency 350 watt max power supply and the Rosewill has a standard 300 watt power supply. A high efficiency Antec power supply is going to last longer then a generic power supply. Mine is going on 5 years now no hiccups and voltages still perfect.- it also runs cooler than a standard power supply since its high efficiency. In this form factor if you want longevity and you value your components, it's worth the extra $$ for the better power supply.

Antec Minuet350 Piano Black Steel MicroATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W 80PLUS Certified Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: fairly cheap, easy to work on, very good power supply

Cons: would be nice if it came in all black

Other Thoughts: I bought this a few years ago, and recently decided to update it with a more current MB and processor. I went with an A8-6600K. I have an SSD 240 GB in this 8GB of RAM and it totally rocks and is almost completely silent. I saw people complain that no USB 2.0 on the front- who cares? I attach the external drives on the back anyway. The front I may transfer an occasional file off of a usb drive, but 2.0 is fine for that. The power supply is plenty, because with this APU I don't need a videocard. I have used this non stop with a e4500 processor since 2009, and it still works great with the new processor. I use windows mediacenter and have the HD homerun network 3 cable tuner. I use an external USB 3.0 2 Tb drive for the DVR storage. So easy to install stuff. I also have a blu-ray drive installed. This case by far is the best bang for the buck, dependable and perfect sizing.
