This review is from: EVGA 500 W1 100-W1-0500-KR 80+ WHITE 500W Power Supply
Cons: -Died on a PC that drew nowhere near 500 watts.
-Have filed an RMA and contacted EVGA customer support multiple times and I have not heard back from anyone... months ago.
-Not much more to say...
Other Thoughts: EVGA customer service is awful... Really just want my money back, not another awful power supply. Stick with the companies known for making power supplies. I wont try an EVGA PSU or refer them to any of my clients.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100
Pros: Worked well and was responsive while it was alive.
Cons: Didnt last much more than a year. Inside this enclosure is a cheap Seagate Green drive. On some computers it worked well with usb 3.0 and on others, it was only recognized in 2.0. I should have known better when I bought a seagate... I have had horrible luck with them in the past and for some reason I thought this time would be different. If you want a serious external, get an enclosure and throw a Western Digital drive in there. They have premier drives for many applications. I personally and going to be running RAID 10 from now on with an external backup. I lost 600GB of vital data that wasnt updated in my other external. The weak 1-year warranty does nothing for me now. Almost all WD drives have 5-year warranties. For a reason. Go WD. Seagate is trash.
Other Thoughts: Will never buy another Seagate product again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silverstone FF121 120mm Fan Grille and Filter Kit
Pros: This is a pretty nice looking and low profile (very thin compared to other filters) filter. Easy to install.
Cons: Filter has poor "dust spot efficiency." In other words, the filter doesnt stop much dust from entering your computer. Kind of pointless to install alone; I recommend that you add another layer of filtration behind it... thats what I had to do.
Other Thoughts: I don't see how people who buy these filters can fill out the "tech knowledge" blank as "high." Anyone with a high tech knowledge level will most definitely be making their own filters and designing their own plastic enclosures to mount on the fan or case. I bought this little filter over a year ago as a spare for future builds. Little did I realize that $7-10 could buy me enough materials to build 4 or 5 filters with twice the performance. If you have a low tech level and want something simple to install that will remove a little dust, buy it; that's pretty much all its good for. But if you truly do have a high tech knowledge, you probably aren't reading the reviews of this product in the first place.READ FULL REVIEW
